    Hi, the wood burner is a French 'cheminee' designed to be built in to a chimney breast, made by Renee Brisach. The glazed door can hinge open, or retract upwards in to the guillotine case above and the stove has glazed side panels. Convected heat from the stove body is normally let in to the room via vents from the chimney breast, but our client liked the industrial look of the normally hidden parts, so apart from the concrete plinth, there is no chimney breast! The log basket is a traditional wicker East Anglian fisherman's basket.

The living room has a covered terrace to provide somewhere sheltered to sit while looking across the fields outside. ‘There’s fantastic wildlife on this site,’ says Barclay. ‘As well as the bats, there are ducks, geese and other birds. There’s also a barn owl you can sit and watch as he or she is hunting on the field. To the west of the house is some RSPB land with herds of deer on it.’
