EXG JUL 17 Hot Prop


The ability to add creativity, practicality and personality to a property is very appealing. A bespoke design on a grand scale means you can fashion your living space to suit your every need, but even small touches of individuality in furniture or decoration, for example, can make your home stand out from the crowd.

It’s worth bearing in mind though that if you are planning a facelift in order to sell, don’t over-personalise the design as you may put off potential buyers who don’t happen to share your tastes.

Slightly elevated and affording a wonderful garden with countryside views to the rear, this unique home was completed in February 2017 with a high performance Monocouche exterior render and under a Welsh slate tile roof. This property promotes contemporary, family living and includes many high specification fittings. The five bedrooms all with en suite bathrooms, include two with high-apex glazed windows overlooking the gardens. Possibly the most stunning aspect of the accommodation is the open-plan kitchen and living space which opens via two sets of bi-folding doors to the expansive decking area and garden.
