A sophisticated series of modern spaces seamlessly linked to the landscape.
In splendid contrast to the abundance of historic buildings, and, named after one of the village's appreciators, Orwell House was designed and built by highly regarded, local designer Andrew Herring in 2007/8. To quote Herring:- The design concept for this house was to create organic modernism', utilising natural materials including plants, water, thatch, oak and stone. These play against more modern materials such as glass and polished concrete with crisp, fresh, light reflecting walls and ceilings. Internal floor surfaces carry into the external spaces, encouraging use of the outdoors to a much higher degree than the mainstream home. Glass is used to such an extent that the gardens are invited into the living space to create a feeling of well-being. The images should speak for themselves
a deliberately understated arrival, security, seclusion, peace, sophistication and most importantly, fun.
Approached along a private, shared lane Orwell House is entered through a Corten steel electric entrance gate to ample gravel parking in front of the property. There is triple open-bay garage. The gardens, designed by Herring and Sarah Eberle, winners of gold medals at Chelsea Flower Show in 2006 and 2007, have been further enhanced by the current owners and are well established. Modern in design, providing privacy and numerous outdoor spaces, features and specimens include:- Willow trees, long grasses, bamboo, silver birch and tulip trees, water features, agapanthus flowers, log walls, Corten steel garden area with fire pit, olive trees set by a decking terrace and Japanese slate heated swimming pool.
The pool house with first floor bedroom and shower room doubles as a studio annexe depending on needs.
