Every once in a while an opportunity presents itself and requires something different, something special.

That something special is a bespoke house, designed with the history and the setting of the site in mind. The house has been built on the footings of the old farm buildings and occupies a fantastic position overlooking its own paddocks and parkland.

Immense effort has gone into identifying and sourcing the appropriate materials. Many features have been reclaimed, some with unique history of their own, which further adds to the wonderful heritage being created.

The house itself has been constructed and designed using the finest materials with unsurpassed attention to detail.

These include reclaimed and hand carved marble fireplaces, a sweeping reclaimed Victorian teak staircase rising up from a lime stone and slate cabochon hallway under a reclaimed Victorian roof lantern.

There is a hand-built and painted Marl Wilkinson kitchen with sub-zero appliances under an English oak vaulted ceiling. In addition the bathrooms have Victorian enamel baths with nickel-plated fittings.

To the rear of the house is a large terrace constructed using reclaimed flagstones, with pink granite sets, cast iron railings and ornate Victorian style wall lanterns.

The property won The What house Bronze Award, Best Luxury House Category in 2006
