  • Ancona
    The Vision

    An opportunity - to purchase an exceptional elevated, highly individual, contemporary home of wonderful proportions enjoying truly outstanding panoramic coastal and golf course vistas.

    A unique home - featuring cantilevered terraces with earthy, wild flower sedum grass roof coverings, paired with Austrian triple glazing and under-floor heating throughout, an 8kW solar PV system, a comprehensive MVHR (Mechanical Ventilation and Heat Recovery) system throughout the property utilising geothermal temperatures for heat in the winter and cooling in the summer, all controlled via your tablet or phone.

    A goal - a substantial home to cost no more to run than a normal family home, even including the existence of both a pool and spa, blending cutting-edge design with contemporary function and an A-Grade EPC & SAP rated living space – achieved with the additional advice of a Passivehaus Consultant and expert energy advisors – a true EcoMansion for those who lead by example.

    Proposed is 6,740 sq.ft of stylish internal area with unique spaces including a dramatic gallery-inspired entrance lobby and centrepiece helical stair, an elevator servicing the 3 above ground floors, a sumptuous indoor pool complex and gym, a master bedroom suite with magnificent panoramic sea views and a modern, stylishly-lit wine cellar. We designed the main living space to be on the first floor with a beautiful wrap-around terrace with stunning views of the golf course and the English Channel across to northern France.

    This EcoMansion is all about celebrating this fantastic setting in unadulterated comfort and luxury.
