The Property

This truly unique home was built in the early 2000's and designed by an award winning London architect for his mother's own occupation. It is essentially a free standing steel structure, built within the surrounding walls of the adjacent Listed buildings. It was future proofed by virtue of an internal lift and ground floor bedroom suite, suitable for a live-in carer. The design is highly individual and the clever use of glass panels above the internal walls allows light to move throughout the building. The use of high quality materials have stood the test of time and it still presents as a wonderfully modern low-maintenance home, close to the town centre, and with the unusual benefit of covered and enclosed parking for several cars. In 2003 the building received a regional award from the RIBA.

The Accommodation

The front door leads into a hall with entry phone, lift and spiral staircase off. On the right is the ground floor bedroom, with built-in wardrobes, an en suite bathroom and laundry cupboard. It has a separate door into the courtyard. On the first floor, the master bedroom again has built-in wardrobes, an en suite bathroom and access onto the side balcony. The guest bedroom has extensive wardrobes and a shower room adjacent. The open-plan sitting/dining/kitchen is a wonderful space with access onto the south facing front balcony plus the side balcony from the dining area. A feature curved room divider separates the kitchen area which has a range of units, with all the usual built-in appliances, and a sink with waste disposal.


There is a delightful south facing balcony off the sitting area with an awning, railings and shutters. On the ground floor there is parking for several cars with electric twin gates and a separate pedestrian door. Within the courtyard there are three built-in storage cupboards, housing the utilities, boiler and fire alarm.


All mains connected. A gas boiler supplies central heating and hot water with underfloor heating throughout. Council Tax Band C - £1,879.64 payable for 2021/22. EPC rating band C - 70.
