Headlands Para 55

This striking new Para 55 dwelling, in the Cotswold AONB, sits at the headland between two ridge and furrow fields in a spectacular hillside location.

The leaf roof organises open plan living spaces and rests above a discreet bedroom wing and meandering cotswold stone clad retaining wall.

By sitting between each field the house enjoys magnificent views of both and significantly enhances this unique landscape setting.
