Summary

Available for purchase as a completed home £1,900,000 Architect managed and constructed by NHBC registered builder with stage payment build or as a self build: Purchase of the land with full planning permission OIEO £600,000

Location

Kite House has a wonderful position in beautiful countryside, well away from any busy roads, with breathtaking views. Nearby are charming villages and within easy reach are small country towns, the beach and the larger cities including Taunton, Bristol and Bath. A drive, of about 400 yards, leads from a small country lane, past a neighbouring house and on to Kite House.

Description

This is a stunning building which is architect designed and fits superbly into this unspoilt landscape with far reaching views and huge skies. Quoting the design statement – “Externally, the dwelling will be constructed using a palette of natural materials and will make reference to the local vernacular and the existing barn. Materials such as vertical timber cladding is used throughout the exterior walls, with a solid masonry base extending to the cill level. A pitched metal roof with a standing seam profile will be utilised and will be in keeping with a modern agricultural aesthetic. Rooflights and solar PV panels will be positioned on the south and east facing roof planes, benefiting from unobstructed sunlight due to the relatively open and flat terrain. Planning Application Number: 50/23/00114

*

Large areas of glazing will be incorporated to the south and eastern elevations which constitute the open plan living areas and the master bedroom suite at ground floor level. These rooms have direct access to the private terrace area to the southeast of the dwelling. There will be an overhang supported by timber posts to provide shading to the south facing gable and Terrace. The interior is equally impressive with a superb kitchen and dining room opening into an equally splendid living room with a high vaulted ceiling.

**

Other accommodation on the ground floor includes a reception hall, utility/boot room, 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. Above is a further open plan living area, a bedroom (with far reaching views) and en suite bathroom and extensive storage. Returning the main reception hall a door opens to self-contained the east wing which has a sitting room, and a master suite with a bedroom, bathroom and dressing room.

Sustainability

The property will utilise sustainable heat sources including an Air Source Heat Pump and underfloor heating. Windows will be triple glazed, and a large array of solar panels are included on the south and east facing roofs. A Mechanical Ventilation Heat Recovery system will be installed to supply a continuous clean air supply and contribute to the energy efficiency of the dwelling. Rainwater harvesting will be implemented though a rainwater harvesting system whereby rainwater will be re directed from hard surfaces such as the roof and utilised to flush toilets, wash clothes and many other non-human consumption related applications. The building will be insulated above the minimum requirements of Building Regulations and will aspire to achieve U-values higher than the minimum targets currently set.

***

The above factors, as well as the use of high-quality materials such as locally sourced timber, sheet roofing and masonry, as well as the potential to recycle existing materials on site, such as the existing timber and concrete, will enable the proposal to be a sustainable new build dwelling to high standards.

Outside

Approx. 2 acres of grounds to the east and south. Also included is a large American timber barn, recently used as stabling but equally suited for other uses.
