Planning permission is rarely secured on such picturesque rural sites but due to the outstanding and innovative architecture design permission has been granted. Combining natural and man-made materials this modernist home sits comfortably within its surrounds while making a striking statement. The plot extends to approximately 3.4 acres with rolling country and field views to all aspects. Exceptional schooling and facilities can be found in nearby Kimbolton while major road and rail links are within a short drive.

A vision of a remarkable contemporary country house to be built to the highest design standards, Osier’s is quite simply a dream waiting to happen. As a personal project, the vendors have been granted permission to build a unique property of outstanding architecture, the end result of which will be a home with a wonderful feeling of freedom and connection with nature and the countryside. It will offer contemporary, open-plan, integrated living connected intimately with its environment whilst its grandeur, elegance and beauty will give a lifestyle of luxury and leisure. ‘It’s extremely rare to get planning permission for a house in open countryside on the grounds of the excellence of its design and this will be the first to be built in Bedford Borough. The house is totally unique and the architects' design statement very impressive – there is nothing else like it in existence. We are now looking for the person, or people, who will want to turn this dream into their own reality, ’ say the vendors.

As detailed, the house and landscape proposals have been designed to fit integrally within the outline pattern of the landscape that is formed by steeple waypoints and intersecting pathways/routes that cross the historic field boundaries, including the Three Shires Way and B645 that run along the northern and eastern site boundaries. The house is based upon the form of the longhouses that are characteristic of the local area. ‘The location is rural, however the closest houses to the property are a mile away at Covington, a small, friendly and welcoming community, ’ say the vendors.

The landscape proposals are also designed to reflect the distinctive streams, culverts and ditches, including those that run along perpendicular to field boundaries and the historic use of the site to coppice willows (Osiers) which is reflected both within the materials palette for the house and the landscape proposals. The charming historic village of Kimbolton is just three miles along the road whilst St Neots, with its good rail links to the capital, is a few miles further on. Primary education for Lower Dean is found at the Eileen Wade in Upper Dean, which in turn serves Sharnbrook as its Secondary School. Some of the country’s best private schools are within easy reach, including Oundle, Kimbolton, Oakham and Uppingham.

Once completed, what will be the best features of the house and garden? ‘The open-plan family living area with its all-round views into the garden and reflection pools will be phenomenal – from the outside the property will appear to float in the landscape. The grand cantilever over the entrance with its soaring solidity will impress on arrival whilst the hallway and upper landings will have views the length of the building and beyond. The indoor pool and leisure facilities will open out into the private rear garden making for an easy indoor to outdoor transition. A walk up through the wildflower meadow will give views across the valley of the River Till.’
