Traditionally constructed, this robust and striking residence offers very low maintenance and running costs with up to date eco friendly technology including a solar collecting zinc roof membrane (optimally positioned to provide electricity and hot water as required and deep eaves on the south elevation reducing solar gain in summer months), private bore hole water supply and private sewerage treatment plant, heat recovery system and high insulation values thus affording the property a 'B' energy performance rating and running costs (after solar tariff reimbursement) of around £10 per calendar month utility running costs.
The main feature of the terraced landscaped gardens is the wrap around sun terrace connected to the lounge via 5 folding doors, dressed with the same ceramic tiles thus bringing the outside in. The gardens have been designed for ease of maintenance and attract the wonderful countryside views as well as offer privacy.
