Description
2013 rebuild of 1990s new-build: While the original 1990s build featured on TV’s Homes From Hell, the re-build is now a delightful warm and well ventilated eco-home, designed to allow multigenerational living. The four acre garden
with its green oak summerhouse is also a wildlife haven – an inspirational example of what can be achieved on a disused landfill site.
