Each of those houses has a steel frame, along with glass and wood construction, with this one recently refurbished (in a good way) and offering 3,000 sq. ft. of wonderfully bright living space over a single floor, thanks to all that floor to ceiling glazing.

The renovated space really does bring this place back to its best and is supplemented by a recently built garage and studio space, which certainly adds to the original house. Talking of the main house, it currently offers an entrance hall, with a bedroom wing to one side, containing four bedrooms, including a main bedroom looking out over the garden with floor to ceiling glazing. The other side of the property houses a large open plan space with modern kitchen, dining area, main living room, bathroom, shower room and a store room.
