A striking contemporary designed eco-friendly 4 bedroom house set within 10 acres

On entering you step onto polished concrete flooring, with exposed brickwork featuring to one side, panelled woodwork to the other, and plenty of concealed storage. Leading off this is a guest toilet and shower room. The kitchen/dining room, enjoys a dual aspect outlook, and is illuminated by the uninterrupted light that floods through the full height glass, with doors opening onto terraces and beautiful gardens. This coupled with the vaulted ceiling and galleried landing makes this room perfectly configured for entertaining. The Siemens fridge/ freezer, Miele appliances and Quooker tap are all incorporated into the clean lines of the bespoke kitchen. A central staircase crafted from bamboo leads to the first floor. The glass fronted drawing room has glass doors affording a seamless transition to the terrace. A glasslinked walkway leads to the study, boasting a curved glass wall with an outlook and access to the terrace; access is also available to the lift or curved staircase that leads to the first floor, where there is a large sitting room with Juliet balcony and a sliding, automated glass roof panel. The principal bedroom offers a superb outlook over the gardens and has the advantage of a dressing area and en suite bathroom.
There are three further bedrooms, one with an en suite shower room and a family bathroom. The bedrooms benefit from a wrap-around balcony overlooking the gardens and grounds. From the ground floor hall, the laundry room houses the Loxone home automation system, which provides intelligent, easy-to-use control of heating and lighting, security entry, music, blinds, ventilation and alarm system, whether at home or abroad. There are also air source heating controls, a solar panel control unit and a mechanical heat ventilation recovery system, making this a truly passive house.
