Scandinavian style contemporary home at Reydon near Southwold. On the market for £1.5m.
The Pavilion House is contemporary home, in Scandinavian style, set among acres of wildlife attracting countryside.
This home stands as a beacon of Danish design, at Reydon, just a couple of miles from Southwold on the Suffolk coast.
It is within the coastal Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
Bordering a working farm it has been designed as a long, narrow, flat-roofed pavilion to give it the scale to fit in harmoniously with the existing barn and old dairies.
The Pavilion was designed by Danish architect Jonas Bjerre-Poulsen, based in Copenhagen, with a reputation for projects imbued with an intrinsic quality; and a simplicity that carries bigger ideas.
The Pavilion encompasses these values, providing excellent contemporary living space.

It is based around a rectangular steel frame with vertical Siberian larch cladding, making it a landmark house among special rural surroundings.
The living accommodation extends to just over 2.500sq ft, all arranged on the one level, with all the rooms having a great deal of natural light, and laid with Dinesen Douglas Fir floorboards throughout (with the bathroom tiled).
The reception hall runs the full depth, front to back, with full-height glass panels ensuring a fabulous sense of space, an alternative room to enjoy, whether as a study area or a snug settling around the woodburning stove.
From the door you can see to the far end of each wing of the house, while from the hallway there is a cloakroom and a large coats cupboard.
One side of the hallway leads to the north and opens up to a stunning kitchen/breakfast room, with more full-height glazing and doors leading outside to the front and back gardens.
The kitchen area incorporates a number of base level storage units, with a Neff induction hob, an integrated drawer fridge, a double oven and a dishwasher.
The sitting room has a north and west orientation, two thirds of which is glazed, with views over the gardens, and warmed by a recessed open fire with a floating hearth.
The bedroom wing includes a delightful double aspect master bedroom with glazed doors to both front and back, and served by a walk-in dressing room and a stylish high quality en suite bathroom.
The two remaining double bedrooms have views to the east over the gardens and neighbouring farmland, and have access to a shared shower room which is beautifully designed.
The Pavilion House sits centrally in its plot, of about one acre, adjoining the working farm.
The grounds are largely laid to lawn, which is flanked by a limestone plinth around the property.
There is also an annexe, complementing the principal house, with Siberan larch cladding, providing secondary living or office space.
It has limestone flooring, a wet room and also storage space.
The Pavilion House and annexe operate with a state-of-the-art logburning biomass boiler serving the underfloor heating, with an electrical back-up system.
It has its own private water supply and private drainage via a Biodisc treatment plant.
On sale with Bedfods.
