Sitting on a 1.1 hectare (2.8 acre) site the design goal was to have the look of a century old stone house while incorporating the latest in energy saving techniques and modern comforts.

From the plans below you will note that the interior also is in keeping with the period home in that it reflects that balanced centre hall plan. Upon entering the house the curved, grand staircase is the initial focal point of interest but your eye then carries to the double french doors leading into the glazed solarium. Note a handicapped lift services all three levels.

The following aerial views show how the structure was sited between existing major trees.
