Originally RAF buildings dating back to the Second World War, Blakemore has been sympathetically and creatively designed by a RIBA (Royal Institute of British Architects) architect, to create a sophisticated and contemporary living space suitable for a family or those looking for a lifestyle property offering space and natural light. Surrounded by nature and green space, Blakemore has been designed to include all �mod cons� whilst being mindful of the environment.
The external timbers are Siberian larch and to maintain the fundamental character of the building, original windows have been restored for decorative use only, along with steel guttering and down pipes. Blakemore provides modern day living with fibre broadband connected, zonal underfloor heating throughout the property provided by an eco-friendly air source and a water treatment plant.
