This "wild and wonderful" eco-friendly property has been designed with contemporary living in mind and includes almost an acre of beautiful landscaped gardens.
Few north Norfolk properties are quite as striking as The Glasshouse in Holt, a modern eco-friendly property with, as the name suggests, an impressive glass elevation and a modernist shape. Designed by award-winning property developer, Derek Foreman, the property combines a number of elegant and sophisticated living spaces with high-end style and proven functionality.
"The Glasshouse is probably Holt's finest modern house," says Henry Cockerton, partner at Brown & Co which is selling the property for £1,495,000. "In my career, I've seen some wild and wonderful houses but this is one of my personal favourites. In all our years of selling exceptional houses in this part of Norfolk, this might be the best example of a contemporary modern family home.
"It was winner of Best Individual Home in the East of England LABC Awards and was runner-up in the UK Awards. The location is also fantastic with an acre of landscaped grounds just a stone's throw away from Gresham's School and a short walk from the town centre."
The first floor accommodation is mainly made up of a large, open-plan area which includes a designer kitchen and stunning living and dining areas which offer incredible views over the property's extensive gardens. There is also a study, cloakroom and utility room on this floor, and a bespoke helical staircase which leads down to a self-contained basement apartment. This has its own master suite, open-plan living space, cloakroom and bathroom, and also leads to a luxurious, state-of-the-art cinema room.
The rest of the property's main living accommondation is upstairs, on the second floor, and includes a large master bedroom complete with dressing room, ensuite and sleek glass balcony. There are also two further bedrooms and a family bathroom.
Outside, there is a double garage and a large private entrance which offers extensive off-road parking, and private south-facing gardens create a personal sanctuary which include a number of accessible, outdoor spaces which are perfect for laid back, al fresco dining.
