Sleepy Hollow is a “next generation” luxury home located in Castle Hill, Prestbury, Chesire, England, which was designed by The Cave.

The house was designed in response to its location and is also environmentally respectful.  The public spaces such as the entrance and the study were placed on the north side of the construction, while the principal family accommodation is placed at the rear, taking advantage of the light and the privacy.

Because it has a linear design, most of the building’s rooms are exposed to sunlight. The materials used in building the house were chosen due to their environmental properties, but also for their aesthetic appeal: the walls are constructed from Welsh slate by using the principles of dry stonewalling, in order to help slow down the heat loss; the glass is used to promote continuity between the construction and the serene wooded environment.

This home features five ensuite-bedrooms, a study, a formal lounge, a statement dining hall and an open plan kitchen, a breakfast room and a family room, all rooms benefiting from light and space.
