Contemporary house with stunning views over the Chilterns set in 2 acres with a separate annexe.
High Point's living areas are designed to enjoy the breath taking situation while it's construction materials keep it at one with the natural environment. Traditional details have been adopted wherever possible, especially visible are the hand struck steel nails of the beautiful elm cladding. When in the mood, relax in the hot tub whilst your eyes feast on the panorama. The sawn York stone paving of the upper terrace descends down a similarly adorned staircase to the hot tub area with its aromatic lavender planting. High Point's garden blends seamlessly into the landscape borrowed scenery' & the great within the small' are two fundamental concepts within Japanese garden design.
