Five bedrooms and around two acres of land are included in a £5.9 million house for sale in St Albans.

Abbey Orchard House, in Pondwicks Close, once appeared on Channel 4's Grand Designs.

Featured on the show in 2017, the property includes "stunning contemporary living", "high eco credentials", a private setting with views of St Albans Cathedral and a triple garrage with storage for garden machinery.


A cinema room, with a 120" screen, is included.

Instead, galleries are present, with space for art to be displayed.

A 30-metre glass atrium connects the two wings of the property.

The house's listing on Savills' website reads: "Of the 300 plus drawings produced for Abbey Orchard House, over 100 were for the interior.

Kevin McCloud commented, upon his visit for Grand Designs in 2017: "Wow what a house, surrounded by majestic giant trees this extraordinary shaped house is almost lost in the green.

"This is remarkable, inside it is breathtaking, the light is so soft you can almost touch it. Every surface glows and is pristine.
