Sevendials stuns in the Cheshire countryside

Situated in the rural countryside village of Mottram St Andrew, Cheshire, Sevendials is a private contemporary residence project. It utilises an array of innovative products from leading aluminium suppliers Reynaers and Cheshire-based Altitude Aluminium, which installed the stunning aluminium windows and doors on this beautiful build.

The contemporary living space is set across more than 600m2 including a full leisure suite with guest accommodation. Situated at the head of a gently sloping valley and immersed in mature greenery including Oak and Birch trees, the modern house boasts views across Cheshire towards Snowdonia and North Wales.

TheCAVE architecture + design studio was selected to design the project due to its vast luxury private residual property portfolio. TheCAVE was invited to stay in the bungalow that was previously on the site for three months before the project commenced to gain a profound knowledge of the path of sunlight, views and landscape before plans were finalised.

Platform Lift par for the course

Just 6 miles from Glasgow city centre lies the beautiful Douglas Park Golf Club, situated in the heart of Bearsden. Founded in 1897 and steeped in history, it’s also home to the Antonine Wall built in 140AD by Roman troops, which runs through the 13th and 15th holes.

After initial meetings with the golf committee members, Invalifts were chosen to supply and fit their premier product, the MC2000 platform lift. Working with the main contractor, Marshall Contruction, the MC2000 lift was chosen as the ideal solution for access between the two floors of the clubhouse.
