Garden House is a contemporary five bedroom country house set in the garden of a grade II listed 16th century farmhouse nestled behind a grade II* medieval church at the edge of a village within a conservation area. The T-shaped form of the house reflects the neighbouring cottage and creates a walled courtyard garden to the north as the entry to the house. The dwelling is positioned in the plot to create a generous south-facing garden with long vistas across open countryside. The design is inspired by traditional rural barns with features such as long, parallel, timber clad forms, as a simple and clear architectural idea that makes natural associations with the surrounding area.
The property comprises of a large open plan living area (including living, kitchen and dining areas) with 180-degree glass walls connecting to the outside garden (all retractable), with a ground floor study/bedroom and bathroom. A generous double garage and utility area. The first floor comprises of a master bedroom suite with large bath/shower room, dressing area and floor to ceiling windows over the countryside. 3 further bedrooms (1 en suite) and a family bathroom. Large gardens including a formal garden and patio area, beyond is a wild flower meadow and fields beyond.
