A new five bedroomed courtyard estate house with cottage and steading annexe that commands majestic views south over unspoilt countryside. This new split level house integrates the old farm out-buildings with expansive new living area and upstairs bedroom suites and balconies. The design recalls the original imposing hillside home which it replaces.
We first met the owners Alex and Catherine in May 2014, having been recommended by a previous client. They brought to us their elegant wreck: an enormous, 8-bedroom Edwardian villa that had previously been the home of a multi-generational family. Before that it had been bedsits.

The apartment had not been touched for twenty five years. It was tired, the services were old and a full refurbishment was required. The building was brick and concrete, it was an Edwardian mansion block and there were lots of flats to try and keep happy through the noisy dusty works.
