If you want something bold and eco-friendly for your next home, check out this individual architect-designed eco home in Rickmansworth, Hertfordshire.
The property is called Walnut Burrow and sits around a mile from Rickmansworth town centre and at the top of its own private driveway, behind electronic gates.
Get beyond that and you’ll find what the agent describes as a ‘stylish and unique underground eco-home’, mixing eco-friendly features with cutting edge technology and contemporary design.
If you want some examples, this place includes an amazing cinema room, Rako programmable lighting, a Daikin hot water and solar panel system and a Vent Axia Sentinel Totus 2 heat recovery and ventilation system. Of course, there’s the actual architecture, too, with the house seemingly burrowed into the landscape, with a spiral staircase leading to the roof garden.
Plenty of living space within the house too. An oak front door leads into the hall (with cloakroom) and off that you’ll find the main reception room and the bespoke German kitchen, both with sliding doors to a lit courtyard.
In addition, there are four bedroom suites all with ‘high end’ bathrooms, along with that previously mentioned cinema room, which features a 9ft screen.
Outside there are fully landscaped gardens, along with a granite cobbled driveway leading to a tandem garage.
There’s an open day this weekend if you want to a closer look (contact the agent to book in), with the price at £2,500,000.
