Said to have been built to an original design back in the day, this 1970s Scandinavian-style property in Barrington, Cambridgeshire still packs quite a punch.
That’s definitely the case if you love wood, as this place has it everywhere, both inside and out – the exterior, the balcony, the inner walls, the ceiling beams…you name it, there is wood attached to it. But with this kind of house, it works, which is the important thing.
According to the agent, the house was constructed with a timber frame too, along with handmade brick elevations and designed ‘for ease of maintenance’, as well as energy conservation with draft proof timber doors and windows and a ventilation system with energy saving heat exchanger.
Great location (you get around 0.47 acres) and a decent amount of flexible space inside over two floors. The ground floor has an entrance hall, cloakroom, drawing room, snug, dining room, kitchen/breakfast room, family/games room, four bedrooms and a shower room.
Head to the upper floor and you’ll find the sitting room, the balcony (with some great views), a laundry room and a bedroom with en-suite bathroom.
We mentioned that outside space, which is mainly garden leading to the River Cam, but there’s also a double garage out there too.
If you fancy it, the asking price is £1,100,000.
