Grand Designs – Newbury Farm House

Moving from the city to the countryside to run a farm, start a microbrewery and live in a vast 21st-century farmhouse are Michael and Phil. They are both confirmed city dwellers, living in lofty heights in swanky Soho, however both fell in love with Christmas Farm, near Newbury. They moved there and commuted to their jobs in the city, however they soon realise Christmas farm was a full time job. Thus they left their jobs to focus on the farm.

The farm house currently is a timber chalet style home, which they found claustrophobic and couldn’t enjoy the views of the countryside from the small windows. They are instead looking at building a 21st century farmhouse, different to anything seen in the area and as well as being functional as a working farmhouse it will also be ultra-modern. Cut into the hillside the home features numerous staged floors, flowing from working on the lower ground to living on the upper grounds.

The expansive project sees them overseeing the expensive project as well as running the farm, which they need to make money. However to make their new home work financially they set up a new micro-brewery in the barn. There are delays along the way, especially with their extravagant design which includes the largest sliding trapezoid window in Britain and a flint clad outside walls, however they managed to complete it all on time and within budget.

The house featured a mud room, to be used when coming in from the farm, to clean up in, before entering the rest of the house. Inside was a Crosswater Solo Fixed Shower Head and a Crosswater Shower Handset with hose and round back plate for cleaning up. As well as a Vitra basin and heated towel rail similar to Vola T39W. This room is mainly a functional bathroom, however also in the house was an on-suite with a toilet which had views out into the country side and a bathroom in the guest house. Items used in the show can be found on our Grand Designs Page, if you’re looking for inspiration.

Kaldewei Soundwave Sound System for Baths

A stunning innovation from the Europe number one bath producer Kaldewei takes you into the world of sound, not in your living room, but into the bathroom! Using two simple transponders your bath becomes a large loudspeaker of high quality and you are able to listen to all your favourite songs or music whilst relaxing in the bath. By using the movement of the water the sound and gentle rippling are created and the system works equally well without any water in the bath so you can still enjoy music in the shower, all from the touch of a button.

This clever system uses the two transponders as well as six acoustic panels, with a Bluetooth receiver and a control box. No professional help is need to install the Soundwave and it is all tucked away beneath the bath and it is all compatible with any Bluetooth device as well as iPad, iPhone, or laptop device. The system can be linked with 8 devices each of which has a pass code which the receiver will instantly recognise automatically along with your playlist, ideal for families with differing tastes in music. So let the soft tones of the Kaldewei Soundwave Sound System relax you along with the water and the bubble bath.
