The house, which is titled ‘ 15 and a half Consort road,’ was designed by actor Monty Ravenscroft, who wanted to build an eco-friendly house.

He was interested in sustainable building design, construction and the benefits to the environment long before undertaking his current project.

He bought the disused site for £600,000 after selling another property and has spent a further £600,000 on construction and materials.

The house is fitted with retractable skylights, making it very light and airy in the rooms, and it stands out with fold-away toilets to save space, as well as a bath hidden under the bed.

This main bedroom is the most universal of the spaces in the house. The shower area is only signified by the tapered drain slots in the floor whilst the shower head fitting doubles as a light fitting – or if the shower is left dribbling at night with the light on it becomes a water feature.

The glass can be dimmed as appropriate, the bed slides to one side to reveal a spa bath, which still allows room for two in the bed while the bath is in use.

その間, the step up to the garden was a result of keeping roof lines down for planning but also to help bring the garden in to the room.
