This stunning site sits at the head of the Luscombe valley adjacent the historic world famous Compton Acres Gardens in exclusive Canford Cliffs. The magnificent sylvan setting was the inspiration for a striking contemporary design solution with large areas of glazing to flood light into the building whilst also creating a direct connection between the interior and exterior landscape.

The stucco elevations stand in contrast to the wooded backdrop and there is a sense of being within the canopies of the trees when inside the building or on the cantilevered terrace.

This six bedroom 7000sq ft luxury house spreads over three floors comprising two kitchens, a large cinema, reception rooms, playroom, triple garage, an indoor pool, sauna and a gym, all built to the highest specification as you would expect of a property such as this. With thermal and sound insulation, beyond levels set out by current UK building regulations, the entire house is airtight and climate controlled.
