Woods End Is Available For Sale
a meandering stream in a lovely wooded setting, Woods End is
a stunning contemporary country residence and possibly one of
the most exciting new homes to have been created in recent years.
Set in approximately two acres (tbv) of landscaped,wooded grounds,the
house has been designed by award winning architects Roderick
James to be in close harmony with the surrounding landscape,
environmental concerns being a major consideration.
Traditional building techniques have been employed using contemporary
methods resulting in a marvelous fusion of style, tradition
and aesthetics. Architecturally, part of the brief was to take
full advantage of the marvelous Norfolk light and ensure the
accommodation became a light filled, welcoming space.
Therefore the notion of curved roof lines, organic materials
and open plan living were conceived and married together with
twenty first century requirements to form a property capable
of adopting many personalities in order to reflect the lifestyle
of those who live within this space.
Majestic Douglas Firs grown and supplied from a sustainable
UK source at Longleat, have been crafted to form the frame,
whilst the whole building has been wrapped in Redwood Cedar
with dipped hardwood window frames from Sweden, carefully positioned
and sized to maximise views of the garden and beyond.
Ingeniously these have all been brought together under gently
curving roofs topped with flowering sedum, providing a delightful
display of white and pink flowers during the summer. This traditional
way of construction has been combined with modern day technology
which allows for discreet yet thoroughly efficient thermal and
sound insulation together with windows which cut out harmful
ultra violet rays whilst ensuring against heat loss.
The house has been designed to 'breathe'
