Helios House is a "Grand Designs" style eco-house with very flexible accommodation, in an attractive setting with ample parking.

Situated in a desirable location off Brockley Lane, the property is characterised by external cedar cladding, a double height ceiling to the living area, a stylish bespoke kitchen, luxurious en-suite double bedroom accommodation plus a large roof terrace with superb views over surrounding countryside. Modern technology including an air source heat pump, in-roof solar panel array and a mechanical ventilation heat recovery (MVHR) system plus triple glazed ecoHaus aluminium and timber framed doors and windows, create impressive energy efficiency, more important now than ever before.

Helios House sits towards the centre of a generous plot, with wooden-gated gravelled parking including electric car charging points. Upon entry one is immediately struck by the double height ceiling to the left hand side, creating superb light and airy living space.

Attractive grey porcelain tiles (with underfloor heating) across the entire ground floor provide a great sense of flow to the accommodation, which is painted white throughout, further maximising the sense of space and light. Exposed wooden beams, window and door frames create a sense of Scandinavian style and functionality.

The spacious living area has a wonderful sense of the outside being inside, with large triple glazed bi-fold doors opening onto to a decked area with a dining terrace and gravelled Mediterranean garden beyond.

The brand new Shaker Workshop Ltd kitchen is immediately accessible from the living area, or can be separated from it by closing 2 large sliding doors. The kitchen features a good range of wall and base units with quartz work surfaces and high quality integrated NEFF appliances including a dishwasher, oven and a microwave, with space and plumbing for a large American-style fridge/freezer. A large island, incorporating a NEFF Schott ceramic hob and worktop extractor, with seating to one side creates a central focus and provides extensive storage.

The adjacent dining area is a good size and, like the kitchen, is bathed in light through a wide triple glazed sliding door to a decked area, with access to the garden and paddock beyond, plus nearby external wooden stairs leading to the roof terrace.

Beyond the kitchen is a spacious dual aspect double bedroom suite with a large recessed double wardrobe and stylish en-suite. With large glazed doors to either end, plus 4 large windows to the side wall, the space is currently arranged as a double bedroom/office to work from home, however could perhaps be used as a bed/sitting room for a dependent relative.

Also to the ground floor is a stylish cloakroom, a very large laundry/boot room and the plant room. This houses all the technology relating to the mechanical ventilation heat recovery system (MVHR), air source heat pump (ASHP), and solar panel array. Energy generated from the solar array is exported to the grid for which payment is received. The ASHP serves the underfloor heating and the MVHR incorporates an air filtration system - useful for allergy sufferers.

A beautiful birch and oak staircase rises through the middle of the house, drawing the eyes upward and leading to the stylish upstairs bedroom accommodation. There are two double bedrooms, one with a generous en-suite shower room and the principal double bedroom with large fitted wardrobe and contemporary en-suite bathroom with a free-standing bath and large separate shower enclosure.

A glazed door to the end of the landing opens onto the generous roof terrace with far reaching views across to Tyntesfield and the Tickenham Ridge. This sheltered space provides a wonderful area to sit and relax or for outdoor entertaining, with external wooden stairs descending to the decked area near the kitchen.

Outside - the grounds have been professionally landscaped, including a seasonal planting scheme with the paddock seeded with meadow seed and a tough grass mix to the grassed areas. There is further scope for the keen gardener in addition to the established gravelled Mediterranean garden planted with drought-tolerant plants. Substantial fencing has been erected, adding shelter and privacy to the garden, which is dog and child-friendly, and there is a useful large shed.
