This house is an incredible feat of modern architecture. The four bedroom detached house is set in its own grounds of over an acre, overlooking Poole Harbour –just a stone's throw from the most exclusive residential area in the country, Sandbanks.
Floor-to-ceiling windows throughout the property seamlessly integrates the inside and out. The surrounding forest provides a dramatic backdrop to everyday life. There's a quality that makes this contemporary house feel like the lair of a Bond villain. A truly stylish one at that.
Come on in...
The predominately glass structure, set in woodland, seamlessly blurs the boundaries between the natural world and the man-made.
To create a seamless sense of space the kitchen, dining and living room occupies a generous open-plan area.
The kitchen is thoroughly modern, with streamlined units and integrated appliances.
A wall with an open fireplace provides even enough of a divide to create a dedicated living area.
The open-plan living space features a large terrace, overlooking the surrounding trees and grounds.
What a view. The master bedroom oozes glamour. Plush carpets help to add a sense of comfort, important to retain in a bedroom that's essentially a glass box..
The master bedroom enjoys a large terrace elevated over the grounds, accessed via glass sliding doors.
The floor-to-ceiling windows flood the bedrooms with natural light. A fabulous way to wake each day.
This is where said villain would sit and wait expectantly for Mr Bond!
Perfectly balancing ingenuity and elegance, the house celebrates the beauty of natural materials. Western redcedar wood, zinc cladding and glass materials exude modern vibes – while the Portland Stone retains an air of Dorset's timeless character.
You can live like a Bond villain, if you have a spare £3,950,000. This house is currently on the market with Savills (opens in new tab).
Could you see yourself living in this very modern house in the woods?
