Ivy Cottage is a stone cottage with a modern timber addition creating a spacious family house. This stunning contemporary home was built for the current owners by a local architect. The air source heat pump providing hot water and underfloor heating, together with exceptional levels of insulation and an eco-roof surface, make this a very economical home to run.

The accommodation has been finished to the highest of standards, with an imaginative use of modern materials including glulam beams, slate flooring and a large pivoting door providing access to the terrace. Feature internal walls have been built to replicate the cottage exterior and the space has a feeling of continuity between the old and the new.

The accommodation comprises of a spacious open plan living area with slate flooring, a vaulted ceiling and a fire pit set in a modern cylindrical fireplace and a large pivoting door to the terrace, a kitchen with wooden fitted units, integrated appliances and a breakfast bar topped with polished granite surfaces, a mezzanine office level accessed by a uniquely designed set of stairs by the architect, a utility room and cloakroom. Three bedrooms lie behind a curved wall of brushed beech ply with exterior access from the hall to the terrace. The master bedroom has an ensuite bathroom with a stand-alone bath and a walk in dressing cupboard. The two further bedrooms both have ensuite shower rooms.
