4 luxury family homes overlooking a quintessentially English scene


The Cedars was once the site for the Farnham Common Vicarage. Set behind the local cricket ground with the village church beyond, The Cedars is a delight in everything thats English, yet only minutes from the M40, M4 and M25.

Today it is the site for our latest completed development, 4 distinctive and luxurious four bedroom houses set over 3 floors with expanses of glazing to the rear and the very private Rectory Close to the front.

Modern yet comfy Interiors designed by our own Sophie Brewster, striking yet warm grey tones and lighting that makes one want to sink into the sofa and relax the day away.

With amazing schools located all around the area these houses are now on the market with Bovingdons Estate Agents and Winkworths Estate Agents, Beaconsfield.

A most difficult conversion of a truly wonderful Listed Building


When we first caught eye of what was to become, Manor Barn, it was being held up by an internal scaffold frame and looking very sorry for itself.  Months away from being close to a large pile of kindling wood we managed to save one of Hampshire's most historic barns. Contemporary interiors, extreme open plan living, topped off with Smart Home control and completely sustainable heating and hot water. See below some images.



17th Century Grade II listed barn meets 21st Century wow factor.


Although structurally sound, we were able to help create something really very special for our clients.  Working with clients who have the same vision as us really makes a difference.  The outside remains a classic 17th Century barn with new handmade plain tiles, black stained featheredge, whilst the inside takes any visitor into another world, the 21st Century world. English Concepts meets HG Wells' Time Machine.



Ancient woodland meets market town surburbs to perfection


The setting an expensive commuter town, the brief . . .create our dream.  English Concepts combined a full range of reclaimed materials, with oak waney edged cladding before mixing 21st century RAL7006 triple glazed aluminium windows and contemporary interiors.  Watch this 5500 sq ft family home grow from start to finish - see below:



Light, airy spaces, set within the beautiful rolling Chilterns


Harveys Barn is a wonderful mix of all things 'barny' . . . floor to ridge spaces, nooks and cranny's, copious beams and timber studs, glazed stairways, mezzanines and bridges. The end effect, an other worldly country retreat set minutes from the capital.

Award winning conversion of two Grade II listed Suffolk Barns


Every once in a while we all can look back and say with some confidence . . that was the one.  Chantry Barn was definitely something special from the very moment we saw the unconverted barns till the final day of completion. Traditional lime mortar met industrial stainless steel worktops whilst reclaimed Suffolk Pantiles sit effortlessly alongside floating walkways and MCZ contemporary wood burning stoves. Enjoy.

A complete 'Victoriana' dream come true


The Victorian desire for orderliness and ornamentation in their house design was the main goal to achieve in this dramatic transformation of a run down Victorian 6 bedroom house. The addition of a natural stone orangery, conversion of many internal spaces to provide luxury ensuites for all bedrooms, handmade kitchen and walk in wardrobes ensured the final result was complete Victoriana.



A tithe experience without the tax


Grange Barn, which is believed to have C17th origins and is Grade II listed, was completely rebuilt and restored to an exacting standard by English Concepts.  New handmade plain clay tiles headed up the barns 'authentism', accented with waney edged oak cladding. A suspended contemporary fireplace set amidst a slick white kitchen blends seamlessly into the aged and decorative existing oak Queen Anne trusses and posts.

Brief: Georgian Farmhouse


The perfect way to start any project is to keep it simple.  This was simply to be a new Georgian style farmhouse to be set in the rolling Hampshire countryside with land for stables, annex above the garage for the au pair . . etc.  So we kept it simple and built a Georgian style farmhouse to be set in the rolling Hampshire countryside.. you get the drift.



A collection of film themed luxury barn conversions


Set minutes from the internationally famous Pinewood Studios, Hollybush Farm was a courtyard of old and redundant farm buildings of all difference ages and styles - higgledy-piggledy is the perfect phrase for the site before work started. After 9 months of intense building we proudly presented Hollywood, Torchwood, Oakwood and Pinewood.



There are many more projects which we would be delighted to show you during our first project design consultation.

We hope you have enjoyed seeing and reading about English Concepts - 'luxury has evolved'
