Ashdown Forest Para 79

Set within a 50 acre site on the edge of the Ashdown Forest, this new Para 79 dwelling is located next to a Humphrey Repton landscape.

Located outside the Ashdown Forest exclusion zone, the property is a relatively modest single storey building, appearing small and discreet, whilst holding back the long distance views that await as you enter.

In contrast, from afar the building seeks to spread its wings and command its position on the ridge of a hillside. A gigantic oak tree has been central to the design of this house and its associated equestrian facility, which will convert waste into sustainable energy through the use of a doemstic scale anaerobic digester.
