The house offers wonderfully light and airy accommodation with timber framed double-glazing and which is luxuriously appointed throughout. It is a home that has been thoughtfully planned and has been constructed using local materials and incorporates a ground source heat pump to provide underfloor central heating and hot water, and a rainwater harvester which collects water from the roof for use in the toilet cisterns. There are photovoltaic solar panels on the roof.
The versatile accommodation includes a host of lovely features which include a beautiful custom made stained glass window in the hallway, an impressive oak staircase and galleried landing, large covered balconies off the two principal bedrooms, a fabulous fitted kitchen with a host of appliances, and a stunning master bedroom suite with dressing room and dream bathroom complete with walk-in granite shower, waterfall taps and an air bath chromotherapy bath. There is also a virtually self-contained wing at the western end of the house which provides a cloakroom, bedroom and shower room, ideal for guests or staff. This has enormous potential as an annex, studio, office, or gymnasium.
The gardens have been attractively landscaped and include large, sunny terraces and deep, well stocked borders.
