A number of environmentally-friendly features have also been incorporated into the property, including thermodynamic solar heating and hot water provision, photovoltaic panels for electricity generation, a rainwater harvesting system and an air re-circulation system.

Space for an American-style fridge/freezer. Separate utility room with units to match the kitchen, a butlers sink, space for appliances and a door out to the side;
- triple-aspect drawing room with bi-fold doors opening out to the garden terrace, having the effect of 'bringing the outside in', and an integrated surround sound system;

The property is accessed from the road over a gravel driveway leading via close-boarded gates to a parking and turning area in front of the double garage. The front garden is mainly laid to lawn, with an ornamental pond with water feature adjacent to the house. A sandstone path leads from the driveway wrapping around three sides of the house, giving access to the front door and to the garden to the rear.

The sandstone paving widens out to create a generous terrace across the back of the house, accessed via bi-fold doors from the drawing room and kitchen/dining/family room and providing a sheltered and private area for outdoor living and entertaining. A level lawn stretches behind the terrace, with an addtional decked terrace offering a further seating area and the land rising beyond to an upper level of garden bordering fields to two sides.
