We can’t resist anything circular, so the Nutmeg House eco home in Bridport, Dorset was always going to feature.
Actually, this is an oval house, designed by architect Barnaby Gunning and built by Parsons Building & Construction in 2012 using locally sourced materials and with the intention of blending in with the nature around it.
Plenty of that too, with the house sitting in grounds of 4.25 acres and with views across to Lyme Bay. So a wonderful setting.
The eco factor is also a , with the house featuring Rationel Aura Plus triple glazed windows and solar panel powered electricity and hot water.
But it’s the house design itself we are perhaps most interested in. Houses that feature bold curves can work, but often fail because the interior design just doesn’t work with then. It definitely works with this one.
I love the bright and quirky retro / modern decor inside, with the curves adding to the flow of the main reception space, as well as making what could be a bland interior just a little bit more interesting.
That interior has plenty of floorspace too. The accommodation includes five bedrooms, two of which have en-suite facilities, along with the large open-plan kitchen / dining / family room, a further reception room, the family bathroom, a playroom, office and a laundry room. There is also a spacious entrance hall, boot room and cloakroom.
You would guess that space is pretty adaptable if you don’t need a playroom for example. But if you do, all the better.
Of course, all of those grounds too and if you like seclusion, there are no immediate neighbours here. But you are just over four miles from Bridport. Plenty of off-road parking and a matching oval shaped oak clad workshop as well, should you fancy getting creative in the country.
£1,500,000 is the asking price of this one.
