A modest house on a large, private, secluded country site, was almost totally demolished before its reconstruction as a large family home. Stripped back to retain part of the original building, the house is now a six bed-roomed structure with games room and study, incorporating a large timber-framed orangerie extension overlooking a terrace and pool. The site includes a residential annex and garaging with gym above. Ground source heat pumps supply the underfloor heating system and pool.
