But it is recent, described as an ‘essay in transparency’ and sitting on a secluded 12.7-acre site. So you can perhaps get away with all that glass. We would imagine the plus side of it being just eight years old is a lack of maintenance (but only a survey will tell you that) and the modern fittings within. Indeed, the agent points out that this luxury home is packed with top of the range appliances.

As for the internal layout, that is listed as 2.968 sq. ft and with three bedrooms and two bathrooms, as well as what looks like substantial reception space. It all looks pretty flexible living space too. A carport and patio area complete things, not forgetting all of that lovely open country you’ll suddenly own.
