A large, modern house in Stow, set over three floors, designed to take full advantage of the wonderful light and stunning views over the Gala Water and beyond.
The house expertly combines style and clever design with a variety of eco features such as, triple glazed windows, a high level of insulation, solar thermal panels, a wood-burning stove, and a heat recovery and ventilation system.
At ground floor, a raised balcony gives access to the roomy hallway, leading through to the master bedroom which includes an en-suite bathroom and a walk in wardrobe. On this floor, are two further double bedrooms, a family bathroom and a utility room. A staircase with open treads leads up to the first floor – straight into a stunning open plan living / kitchen / dining room. French Doors provide lots of light and balcony access. The living area is heated by a large wood-burning stove with a back boiler and the kitchen section is stylish and contemporary. This floor also has a family room, storage cupboard and a WC as well as direct access to the rear garden. The stairs carry on up again to the top floor – which features a fantastic roof terrace providing simply stunning views. This floor offers great versatility; perfect for guests or teens or as a wonderful master suite and includes two further bedrooms, one with an en-suite shower room, the other currently adopted for use as a study, separated by a bright sitting room. Due to the high level of insulation across the house and the combination of the of the wood burning stove and small electric radiators in some rooms, the house does not require a conventional central heating system. Thus saving on the high running costs associated with an lpg tank.
