The six-bedroom lakeside house in a village near Bury St Edmunds, will be showcased on the popular nationwide property show next month.

Built by Long Melford-based Mbloc, the eight-month large-scale project began in October 2018.

Split between three buildings, the one-story house is joined together with enclosed glass walkways, given views across the landscape.

It features lakeside views to add to its already impressive character, having also been built around a large oak tree in the centre of its large open courtyard.

Further details on the property remain unknown, with developers keen to remain tight-lipped before Suffolk's talent is showcased to the nation on October 2 at 9pm.

Ususally, the company focus on building energy efficient two or three bed timber-panelled homes that utilise sustainable materials. They boast being able to build two bed single storey homes in just eight weeks.
