An off-grid eco house set in 9.5 acres of land in the village of Reymerston, near Dereham, is up for sale at a guide price of £1.75 million.

Pivot House is a self-sufficient property with river frontage surrounded by countryside. 

The home, which has an ‘A’ energy performance certificate, was designed by London-based architects Studio Bark under a paragraph 55 approval, which allows homes of exceptional design to be built in rural areas. 

“The current owners have created a remarkable and highly efficient ‘off grid’ and entirely self-sufficient home, providing a unique property that would suit both families and couples alike,” said Tom Clayton, of selling agent Savills. 

“From the sedum roof to the flint gabions, the property has been designed to be a visually impressive home that complements its countryside surroundings, providing one of the most striking examples of an eco-home I have ever seen.” 

Inside Pivot House, there's an open-plan kitchen/dining space, sitting room, study/playroom, utility room, five bedrooms including two with en suites, and a family bathroom.

The property’s eco credentials include photovoltaic panels, which provide enough energy to run the property at sunnier times of year. A back-up generator supplies the power if the panelling has not received enough charge. 

A log biomass boiler provides the heating for the house, and a large amount of timber will be left for the new owner to use. 

Outside, there’s off-road parking space for numerous vehicles on the driveway, as well as a garage with separate workshop space and plant room.
