AWARD-WINNING city firm Fitz Architects has hit a hole-in-one with its latest project.
The Sunniside-based practice has been commissioned to design luxury homes on a new residential development overlooking one of the region’s top golf courses.
Managing director Craig Fitzackerly is delighted to have been given the chance to create several four to six-bedroom houses on land at Ramside Hall Hotel and Golf Club in Durham.
“Each of the exclusive homes on the development will be individually designed and set in a unique countryside setting,” he said.
“The homes we’ve created are contemporary designs and use only high-quality traditional materials such as natural stone, slate and brick.
“The homes will maximise natural light and space for perfect family living. We’ve made the most of unique setting with a creative use of glass to maximise the fantastic views over the County Durham countryside and the rolling fairways at Ramside.”
The bespoke designs include games rooms, libraries and gyms.
Hotelier and entrepreneur John Adamson, who is behind the development, said: “The property venture at Ramside is an exciting new development and I’m delighted that we’ve moved on site,” he said.
“Building work has already started and we expect the first of the homes to be complete as soon as Christmas. The property development will also be an important catalyst for our expansion plans at Ramside, with the addition of a further 48 bedrooms for the hotel and a luxury new health club and spa, which home owners can enjoy.
“Work on our new golf course, has also just been completed.”
