Modern glass house

This four-bedroom, three-storey house in Devon, was completed in September 2007. The house is built on a steep slope, so it has a partially sunken ground floor, which opens out onto the back garden, while the front door of the house leads into the raised ground floor.  Just on the edge of a village and overlooking miles of countryside, the house is built to be incredibly energy efficient and also has a central vacuum system, which is where a vacuum cylinder is stored in a cupboard and connected internally to access points around the house. A lightweight hose attachment can be plugged into these points so there’s no need for a heavy vacuum cleaner to be carried around while cleaning.
