The R1 is a single storey house, potentially suitable for the first time buyer and with great potential for extending in the future.

Available from £150,157

The R1 is the most compact house offered by R.HOUSE. The linear 1 bedroom plan draws inspiration from the traditional Scottish longhouse and would be suitable as a first time home or a holiday let. An efficient form allows the house to adapt easily to site conditions and sit comfortably in the landscape.

The open plan living space has large amounts of glazing to take advantage of both solar gain and views from the site. A core containing the bathroom storage and kitchen separates the living space from the large double bedroom. The full height living space and bedroom gives the house a large and spacious feel, despite the compact plan being only 54m2.

As with all R.HOUSE designs, the R1 benefits from high levels of insulation and air tightness. The simple form of the R1means that it has great potential for future extensions to add additional living or bedroom space.
