Built in 1969, Spruce house was the vision of Messrs Kendall Kingscott Architects and its original owners to create a home that has the family at the heart of its design brief with a sense of provenance, using locally sourced natural stone in its build. With its long sloping roof line framed by the Serbian Spruce that was planted on the day of its completion, the homes inviting first impression is warmed by the subtle details such as elm wood paneling, triangular glazing and the rich tones reflected by the stone masonry.

The generous gardens surrounding the home, embrace nature by taking a more ecological approach in its design ethos, having introduced a variety of fruit trees including Crab Apple, Fig, Olive, Cherry, Plum trees and established and productive raspberry and asparagus beds. The trees are complimented by the wildflower beds that have been created to give a more natural feel to the grounds with an impressive lean to Green house for the new owners to continue creating the organic gardens that have been established over the years. For those who enjoy taking in their surroundings, an array of decking and patio areas have been designed to make the most of the gardens southerly facing views, creating tranquil spaces to enjoy the long summer days.
