This modern cottage is mainly arranged across a single storey with guest accommodation above the garage, built from Shaftsbury Greensand Stone which has been continued internally.
Beyond the bespoke oak front door is a long entrance hall top lit by a glass lantern. This inviting circulation space gives access to the study bedrooms, bath and utility rooms. Opposite is a semi-circular and open plan living area and award winning bespoke kitchen with units constructed in cherry with a concrete work surface. The curved living space is reflected in the unique ceiling detail, composed of exposed radiating joists and subtle concealed lighting.
