From the agent: "Set in almost four acres of gardens, this superb modern house and cabin have been cleverly conceived to optimize the peaceful, secluded position in the Somerset countryside, five miles east of the city of Wells. Built in 2019, the house occupies the footprint of a former agricultural building. With an internal living space of over 4,760 square feet extending across one expansive story, pitched roofs, and expansive glass walls characterize the beautifully light, modern interior. Additionally, a self-contained timber-framed cabin is set within the grounds."

The primary home sits secluded amidst plants and trees in the English countryside.


The home’s exterior is clad in natural wood, and a small planter adorns the entrance. 

Built in 2019, the home features a bright and airy interior.

Large windows fill the living room with daylight. 

The entire home is framed in Siberian larch. A wood-burning stove warms the living area in the colder months.

The hallway features abundant built-in shelving crafted from natural wood. 

A hallway connects the living room to the kitchen. The gray floors provide a cool counterpoint to the warmth of the wood finishes. 

The kitchen is outfitted with a long island, open shelving, and state-of-the-art appliances.

A deck just off the kitchen overlooks the scenic countryside. Around the corner sits one of the home’s bedrooms. 

The primary bedroom features an en suite bath, a closet, and direct access to the verdant grounds.

The deep gray bathroom features a skylight and wooden accent. 

The second bedroom features wooden accents and a glass door leading out to the garden. 

An office space features a built-in desk and large glass sliders that provide views of the surrounding scenery. 

The outdoor patio is perfect for dining al fresco and taking in the serene British countryside. 

The charcoal-colored cabin sits directly across from the main home, and is accessible by a dirt path. 

The cabin consists of two structures: a main living/sleeping area and a bonus space that sits right next to it.

The cabin’s living area has light wood interiors and a breezy atmosphere.

A small kitchenette anchors one wall with ample storage options and charcoal cabinetry.
