A distinguished new house, built in a Georgian style, sitting within the mature landscape of the Howardian Hills. The building replaced a previous house, in a very poor state of repair. The new house has received significant local and regional praise, for being an elegant country house, befitting of its setting. The house is designed over two storeys (with some second floor loft storage), laid out around a central hall and staircase, above which is a central lantern light. Accommodation at ground floor includes a study, dining room, sitting room, kitchen, snug, WC / cloakroom and rear entrance hall. At first floor there is a master bedroom with attendant dressing rooms and en-suite together with four further bedrooms, two with individual en-suites and two with shared en-suite. The new house is orientated on a Northwest - Southeast axis with its footprint offset from that of the demolished property. The aim of this offset footprint is to maximise views from the property across the applicant's land, especially towards a series of lakes to the South.
