A refreshing, light interior awaits inside this contemporary barn home in Somerset, which boasts large volumes and plywood fixtures.
The 2019 eco home was built to Passivhaus standards in rural surroundings outside Wells. Its low, wide form is clad in Siberian larch and punctured with energy-efficient triple glazing, and is set around a central atrium with a transparent polycarbonate roof light.
Birch ply joinery and broad garden views command the open kitchen and living room, topped by a pitched ceiling with slim beams and exposed metal pipes. Micro cement covers floors adding darker hues and swirling textures to the space, which extends across one expansive 4,760 sq ft level.
The four-bedroom Somerset property is on sale for £2.4m with The Modern House and sits on four acres of meadow, including orchards and kitchen gardens. Eco-features include a ground source heat pump, MVHR system, rainwater collection system and a bio-digester treatment plant. The house also comes with an off-grid cabin that generates holiday-let income.
