Built in a modern classical style, The Paddock occupies a wide plot of about two thirds of an acre and is laid out over four floors. The rear of the house presents a more overtly modern facade with large amounts of glass opening to the south westerly facing garden providing bright rooms with excellent views.
Constructed by Baufritz to a bespoke design, the property is built sustainably with the health of the occupants in mind and features organic insulation, allergy compliant construction, solvent free flooring and electro smog protection. Combining stylish well planned accommodation with highly energy efficient construction, The Paddock represents the very best of modern building techniques with underfloor heating throughout, both solar panels and photovoltaic cells and mechanical ventilation and heat recovery.
As well as strong eco credentials, the house is also well set up for modern home automation with CAT 6 wiring, a Savant system that allows for remote control of heating, lighting and audio visual functions, all from a phone or tablet.
