Outside, there is a large expanse of wraparound decking and an impressive steel framed tree house decking in the woodland next to the property. The property has been created using shipping containers with a central infill and left to oxidise naturally to enhance its appearance and connection to the woodland setting.

Tawny Wood is approached over a gravelled driveway providing off road parking for multiple vehicles bordered by vertical wooden sleepers and sleeper steps that take you up to the house.

A bespoke louvred door opens into the hallway which has great views through to the kitchen dining room and the triple bifold doors which open out to the beautiful woodland beyond.

Immediately on the left is a superb wet room with a vanity basin with chrome monobloc mixer tap, a wall-mounted WC and mixer shower with overhead deluge shower head.

On the right of the hallway is a bedroom with French doors to the outside.

The central part of the property could be configured in many ways to suit individual requirements. At the far end is a built-in window seating area and to the right is the second bedroom.

The kitchen, dining and living area runs along the full rear length of the property with multiple windows and doors designed to look out over the wonderful woodland setting. There is a single door leading out from the kitchen area and large windows above the kitchen sink with a brushed chrome mixer tap. The bespoke handmade kitchen cabinets have shelving and walnut worktops, space for a washing machine and a fridge, there is an LPG double oven and grill. Beautiful engineered oak flooring flows throughout the property.

There is eye-catching free-standing Opus feature log burner which is a statement piece between the kitchen and the dining room. The triple bifold doors when fully opened bring the “outside in” and lead onto the fantastic wraparound decking which sits on a bespoke steel frame with steel collar detail providing an incredible area for alfresco dining and entertaining, with views over the stunning woodland surroundings.

The property is clad with Siberian larch which is being allowed to silver naturally to fit in with its woodland setting.

Bespoke steel steppingstones lead down from the decking area at the rear of the property to a fantastic “In the trees” elevated decking area, again built in the same steel frame with feature steel collar design as the main house decking.
