On the northern side of the house an apsidal wing clad in sawn larch with a natural slate roof softens the elevation facing onto the lane. The wing houses a sitting room with its central bay window framing the view of the valley across the field. On the western side of the site is a new double garage, built into the natural slope of the land and hidden from view by its planted grass roof. To distinguish the front door, the stone cladding is finely dressed in ashlar courses on either side.
Four bedrooms and family bathroom are built into the steeply sloping roof, with two bedrooms housed in the roof space on the second floor. A series of sensitively detailed dormer windows set into the eaves on the south elevation create bright spaces and a larger dormer to the master bedroom frames views of the landscape.
Knox Bhavan provided a package of drawings for the Client, who self-built the house.
