Comtemporary homes in the county

Harmer GreenHarmer Green



An exceptional home built four years ago for the present owners, this Digswell property stands in grounds in excess of a third of an acre, bordered by mature trees at the rear. Combining 20th century Modernist architecture with bright contemporary interiors in a palette of greys, snowy whites and beiges, this is a house that feels very much at home in the 21st century.

Using dynamic split-level spaces and large and expansive windows, this family-sized detached house has splendid views to the front over neighbouring homes and fields beyond. With an open-plan feel and extensive use of oversized windows and doors, it cleverly connects indoor and outdoor spaces. 
The property also has eco credentials, with solar panels to back up the hot water system, a beautifully planted sedum roof and a rain harvesting system. There is underfloor heating throughout.
