The house was built on a sloping site and designed over with four floors of accommodation to provide a property in excess of 10,000 sq ft.

The main design features of the house are the use of many traditional quality materials including brickwork, natural stone, timber, lead and clay. The focus on the exterior was to provide a house with many design features with the use of brick and traditional stone to provide a stunning glazed entrance feature and destination entrance for the property. The features on the exterior provide varying forms of style picked out from the late Arts and Crafts using traditional timber sash windows with casement windows, box bays, with a mixture of materials used in the elevational treatment using brickwork, clay vertical tiling, Wanelap timber boarding and natural stone.

The fabric of the house was built using a more unusual method of construction. The walls, built from ICF (Insulated Concrete Formwork), not only provided a quick and cost effective method of construction, but also provided double the amount of insulation needed to comply with current building regulations. The exterior of this structure was then meticulously clad using brickwork, stone, timber and clay tiles to provide the design features shown on the original concept for the house.

Inside the house are many design features including a bespoke designed stone spiral staircase through all four floors of the property, Solid Oak framed trusses in the double height dining room, large family rooms, large open plan kitchen/ breakfast room, a feature orangery, a 6 person lift, 6 bedrooms along with a separate living guest suite and 6 en-suite bathrooms. The main master suite comprises of a double height space with separate en-suite/ dressing room and mezzanine study above. A large leisure suite basement accommodation was also built with separate swimming pool, steam room, gym, media room, games room, and feature wine store.
