Crestwood is a delightful family home of a truly unique and individual nature located in an elevated position on the edge of the village with far-reaching views over a wooded valley and common land.
The property was developed in 2002 by the present architect owners with the new house occupying the same foot print as its predecessor. A great deal of care and attention has gone into creating this exciting home which incorporates the use of low-maintenance materials. The exterior is sympathetic to its surroundings with stone-colored render, cast stone window and door surrounds and the use of Cotswold stone to both the front and rear elevations.
Modern technology enables energy efficient features such as solar thermal heating system, IT networking, central vacuum and heat recovery ventilation.
A warm and peaceful atmosphere has been created in this unique family home. The accommodation has been designed to give a light and airy feel with full height and roof line windows making the most of the stunning panoramic views across a beautiful wooded valley. The modern interior is enhanced with open vaulted ceilings and the use of natural materials including green oak.
