Marl House is the working name of a wonderfully designed property which has been granted planning permission under paragraph 79 of the National Planning Policy Framework. This allows new dwellings to be built in the countryside if the design is of exceptional quality, in that it is truly outstanding or innovative, reflecting the highest standards in architecture, and would help to raise standards of design more generally in rural areas; and would significantly enhance its immediate setting, and be sensitive to the defining characteristics of the local area.
The property itself will have a 250m sweeping drive to a semi sunken property that blends into the landscape and is currently specified to be constructed from steel beams with timber clad elevations, a mixture of softwood and Crittal windows under a part slate and part sedum roof. Upon entering the property there are steps down into a double height entrance lobby with sliding door into a kitchen with pantry. Steps back up to the eastern wing lead to a dining room and three double bedrooms all with en suite bathrooms. Across the entrance lobby is also a guest wc, boot room, utility room and access to the double garage. Upstairs is a landing with snug area leading to two principal bedrooms at the rear, both with walk in wardrobes and en suite bathrooms. To the front of the property are two lovely reception rooms, the first designed as a library which flows into a larger sitting room that leads out to a balcony.
This property has 3 acres of land.
