Bowdon's new subterranean home offers luxury living with eco-credentials and a smashing way of entering your own <br/><br/>private pool
What: Look closely at the folly, near a classic English garden feature and you'll find the front door. Once this fabulous subterranean home, laid out in a circular design, is completed it will be hidden completely underground. And what lies beneath will be a stunning property lit by a large central light well.
Inside: Many of the rooms are 'cheese wedge' shaped as they surround a central atrium. The main reception rooms and kitchen in the two-storey building are located on the lower ground floor as well as the master bedroom suite. A particular delight about this bedroom is that it comes complete with a chute that leads down to the swimming pool on the floor below. A second lower ground floor also has two more bedrooms plus a gym, swimming pool and Jacuzzi.
The house, which is currently being built, will also be well-insulated as well as being heated by an underfloor system with hot water from a ground source heat pump. The Bowdon property will also be fitted with a state-of-the-art ventilation and heat recovery system, a solar tube system which will also provide hot water and there will also be a rainwater harvesting system which will reduce water consumption. The lighting in the property is also expected to be very efficient with low-energy light bulbs used as part of a sophisticated lighting system that uses up to 80 per cent less electricity.
Outside: Beautiful grounds set in the Limehurst development, which includes a collection of beautiful luxury
Price: Expected selling price of 2 million
