A striking contemporary designed eco-friendly four bedroom house with a natural pool, set on its own woodland and grounds of just under ten acres. Enjoy three reception rooms, a kitchen/dining room with separate laundry and cloakroom, a principal bedroom with dressing area and ensuite bathroom, plus three further bedrooms - one with ensuite - and a family bathroom. There is also a lift, a balcony, a carport, a store room, and wine storage. Grounds of nearly six and a half acres, boasting a natural pool, terrace, and an outside water closet.

A contemporary delight, offering eco-friendly, light, and versatile living with floor-to-ceiling glazing that spans the majority of the southeast aspect, overlooking...

the delightful gardens and grounds. On entering you step onto polished concrete flooring with exposed brickwork featured on one side, paneled woodwork on 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 glass-linked 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 a 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 ensuite bathroom. There are three further bedrooms, one with an ensuite 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. The property is approached via an automated, gated entrance which opens to a large parking and turning area and provides access to a double carport with an electric vehicle charging point, a pathway leads to a covered entrance colonnade and the primary entrance. Outbuildings include a lockable garden store with an outside water closet and washbasin plus a climate-controlled wine room. The gardens are beautifully landscaped with an emphasis on natural living space. A 20,000-litre storage tank is fed from a borehole, which operates the irrigation systems for the specimen trees and plants throughout the garden. The freshwater pool, reeds, and aquatic plants are a focal point of the garden along with the covered seating area. There is a seamless flow throughout the well-stocked garden, to the recently planted arboretum, designed by Roger Platts.
