Holbeam cottage at Ogwell, Newton Abbot, Devon, TQ12 is quite remarkable! It’s an old cottage thats been given a modern twist.
It’s got the period features of a Grade II listed, thatched, 1640s cottage combined with an ultra modern extension that is very Grand Designs! It’s had some serious renovation work done with architects Minale + Minale and expert finishing by Bovey Construction.
I’m afraid though I’m not a fan of glass stairs but thats mostly because I’m not terribly good with heights.
The house does look at first glance like two separate cottages and it’s only looking more closely you see the glass join!
The listing is very detailed and mentions the Gaggenau gas range, Philippe Starck WC and bidet and a Caesarstone engineered quartz stone island in the kitchen.
It’s certainly a nice mix of old and new!
