Full description

A fantastic opportunity to build a stunning contemporary house set within 53 acres of parkland adjacent to the Savernake Forest.

Planning consent has been granted for a fantastic contemporary family country house of approx 16,250 sq ft, including a full basement, set in 53 acres of parkland adjacent to the Savernake Forest. The concept is for a passive solar house orientated around both the sun's path and the majestic Cedar of Lebanon. It responds to the curve of the trees forming the existing clearing, as a 'boundary' building sitting between the two very different landscapes of woodland and open parkland. The Cedar sits as the focal point.

The design incorporates a solid stone elevation to the north, broken up and dominated by adjoining woodland with a few small openings, in contrast to an open, largely glazed façade to
the south and the parkland.

Environmentally the house works simply with heavy well
insulated solid stone walls to the north, heavy weight
concrete floors and extensively glazed walls to the South which gather in passive solar gain.

The M4 J14 is 12 miles. Pewsey (8 miles) to London Paddington takes 1 hour. Great Bedwyn (6.5 miles) to Paddington is 78 minutes. Heathrow and Southampton Airports are about an hour by car.
