In the kitchen sleek black units provide you with an abundance of storage neatly topped with sleek quartz surfaces. A burst of orange adds some Zest to this contemporary chic space.

Up the wings staircase to the first floor where a large bedroom awaits. To complete this suite you have a walk in closet and your own en-suite shower room. Your guests will love their independence, or maybe a family member will use this wing to enjoy a separate way of living, whilst still feeling included in the families day to day life.
Energy savingEnergy efficiency was high on the agenda when Asmus Farm was built in 2015. 'SIP' panelled elevations and roof give excellent thermal qualities, as well as the ' internorm' triple glazed windows and doors.
LED lighting has been used throughout the house.
Underfloor heating runs throughout the ground floor and a mechanical ventilation and heat recovery system is installed to the ground and first floors. Heating and hot water is supplied by a shared wood pellet fed boiler system, providing exceptionally low running costs due to the Government's renewable energy and subsidies which are guaranteed until 2035.
More to exploreYou have already had a glimpse of the walled garden outside the lounge and the kitchen and if we look further this leads onto a paddock beyond but it doesn t stop there. You have a further three acres of land, separate from the house and gardens how will you use this? Maybe a ménage in the bottom paddock or stables??
