An award winning eco home for sale in West Sussex with panoramic views to the South Downs.
Manor Farm was designed to take a group of agricultural buildings on an open hillside and convert the environment into a practical living space without compromising southerly views to the South Downs and over the land.
The zinc barrel vaulted roofs feature cut outs that form roof terraces and are fully glazed and the two key sections have been linked. Manor Farm is steel framed; the internal walls are not structural making the internal configuration easily adaptable and can be modified to form an annexe, office or further bedrooms. Sustainability is core to the design and build, with super insulation to all roof and walls, under floor heating throughout the ground floor and Oak, believed to have been sawn and air-dried from trees that formerly stood on the site, used for stair treads and interior finishing. There is also a 5,000 litre subsurface rainwater harvesting tank. It has been calculated that the south facing glass provides 6.5 kW of passive solar gain (heat) in the winter. Conversely, in the summer, the overhanging roof prevents the summer sun from penetrating far into the building.
A 4-bay car port, incorporating a stable and tackroom/workshop, lies to the west of the property. The gardens provide a main courtyard to the front, whilst a rear courtyard offers south facing walls perfect for fruit and vegetable cultivation and in close proximity to the kitchen.
