About this property

  • The Pavilion House is a landmark house set amongst some very special rural surroundings. The living accommodation extends to just over 2,500 sq ft, all arranged on one single level, with all rooms enjoying a large degree of natural light, and laid with Dinesen Douglas Fir floorboards throughout (bathrooms tiled). The reception hall runs full depth, front to back, with full-height glass panels ensuring a fabulous sense of space whilst also providing a comfortable alternative room to enjoy, whether as a study area or snug around the wood burning stove. From the door you can see to the far end of each wing of the house. From the hallway is a large coat cupboard and cloakroom. One side of the hallway leads north and opens up to a stunning kitchen/breakfast room with full-height glazing and doors to front and back to the gardens. The kitchen area itself incorporates a number of base-level storage units with Neff induction hob, integrated drawer fridge, double oven and dishwasher. Set amongst acres of wildlife-laden countryside and in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, The Pavilion House stands as a beacon of contemporary Danish design.

    Designed by Jonas Bjerre-Poulsen of Norm Architects, based in Copenhagan, where their work is found in balance - between richness and restraint, between order and complexity - where projects are imbued with an intrinsic quality: a simplicity that carries bigger ideas. The Pavilion encompasses these values, and manages to provide exceptional contemporary living space with a practical and considered footprint. The sitting room enjoys a north and west orientation, two-thirds of which is glazed with views over the gardens, and warmed by a recessed open fire with floating hearth.

    The bedroom wing has a delightful double-aspect master bedroom with glazed doors to both front and back, served by a walk-in dressing room and stylish high-quality en suite bathroom. The two remaining double bedrooms both have views to the east over the gardens and neighbouring farmland, and have equal access to a shared shower room, well fitted and beautifully designed.

    The Pavilion House is well positioned centrally within its plot, which extends to around 5.7 acre adjoining the working farm. The grounds are largely laid to lawn leading up to the property which is flanked by a limestone plinth all around the property. The annexe (90 sq m) which requires completion complements the principal house and is a detached self-contained annexe, with Siberian larch cladding, and perfect for those seeking secondary living accommodation or an office, with limestone flooring, wet room and storage. To the north lies an exceptionally spacious 15,000 sq ft barn providing great potential for a variety of uses.
