The fusion of wood and large windows define the large luminous spaces of this residence. An expansive great room offers an intimate atmosphere with touches of modernity with a large kitchen and marble island, a large living room decorated with wrought iron chandeliers and lounge area to enjoy the fireplace and TV corner.

An outbuilding near the main house is devoted to moments of leisure and relaxation, as is the large swimming pool that is set in the backyard behind the main house.

This house has a wow factor on every thing you set your eyes to see. The windows, the quad bed room, what an art of a structure.

We are planning to convert our barn in the near future. We are looking for ideas, but our budget is £200,000
