An angular and contemporary home nestled on 1.5 acres of verdant British countryside in Berkshire has hit the market for £4.5 million (US$6.3 million).
Known as Skyfall, the five-bedroom home was “designed and built with two functions in mind: luxury and sustainability,” according to the listing with Savills. Fitted with a host of eco-conscious features including solar panels and a state-of-the-art green heating system, the home can operate totally carbon free.
The property “is one of the most exciting and striking new homes that I have seen in recent times,” listing agent Trevor Kearney of Savills said in a statement. “It is an incredible home in a stunning setting.”
The home spans 6,367 square feet over two floors, and is fitted with a vast open floor plan with a kitchen, dining space, seating area and an eco-friendly bio-ethanol fireplace, according to the listing. There’s also an office, floor-to-ceiling windows and sliding doors that lead out onto the raised ground floor terrace.
A suspended polished concrete staircase leads down to the lower ground floor and the home’s bedrooms, including the principal bedroom suite, which has a sizable dressing room and bathroom. Each of the bedrooms has glass doors leading to an outdoor terrace, and elsewhere on the level is a home cinema and a gym.
Mansion Global could not determine the owner of the home or when they bought it.
Skyfall hit the market at the end of April, and, in a perfect demonstration of the soaring demand for the U.K.’s luxury country homes, the home is already under offer, according to listing records.
The healthy appetite for country living—one of the most prominent real estate trends to have emerged from the coronavirus pandemic—paired with a shortage of supply, pushed prime country house prices up 6.7% in the first quarter of 2021, compared to the same time in 2020, according to a recent report from Knight Frank.
