A five bedroom detached house of superb contemporary design and style, set in a small cul-de-sac right at the heart of the village.
Cottenham Close is extremely well located, off The Lanes, right at the centre of the village. It is immediately by the primary school and a few minutes’ walk from the village green, recreation ground, pub and shop. There are just 5 detached house on the close.
Originally built as a four bedroom house around 1980, the property was comprehensively remodelled, updated and extended by QOCA Architects in 2015-17 into a wonderful family home, full of style, warmth and light. There is an impressive kitchen / living space extension at the rear of the house, clad in Shou-Sugi-Ban charred larch, roofed in zinc and opening through folding doors on to the garden. The front sitting room features a polished concrete floor and wood-burning stove and the two newly created wet rooms (one en-suite and one downstairs) are fitted with Philippe Starck designed Duravit ME sanitary ware.
The plot it occupies is generous for its type including a pleasingly private 20m / 65ft rear garden.
Other than the very top-end of the market, property of such considered contemporary design is rare outside the city.
