    About this property

    • The Property
      Kippers Meadow is a three acre expanse of woodland and meadow with the rare commodity of full residential planning consent to build a substantial eco-home. Located to the west of the well served village of Kenninghall, the consent provides a unique opportunity to add to the local landscape in a sustainable and striking way, with careful thought given to the construction and future of the house.

      As detailed under planning reference; 3PL/2020/1331/F with Breckland District Council, the dwelling would be nestled to the south of the three acres, and landscaped to blend in with the countryside. The design is set out to utilise traditional and modern building materials with timber frames, ash cladding, sedum roof, and structural glass. Thermal efficiency is a key component as is the use of Solar PV to reduce any carbon footprint.

      On a more practical level, the living space created will comprise an exceptional open plan area for the kitchen, dining and living areas with boot room and utility for functionality. There is a future proofing ground floor bedroom with en suite and a bedroom and en suite on the first floor, with a further two bedrooms and family bathroom, with mezzanine over the main living space. All areas will have fine views of the surrounding land and countryside.

      The grounds have a landscape plan in place, with a sweeping drive leading to a parking area within a sculptured mound which provides a garaging area and architectural merit to the house. The land is then designed to support a species rich environment with meadow, deciduous woodland, native hedging, wild flower areas and existing plantations with glades and walkways meandering throughout.

    This is such a clever design, as at the moment the site is unobtrusive and blends in with the countryside, and I doubt very much that this is going to change things - it will blend in and become a part of the landscape immediately.
