Many of us are looking towards the future and how homes would be designed by then. Apparently there is already one person who has moved forward. David McMurtry who was knighted in 2001 has spent over 30 million on Swinhay House, providing a detailed look of the ideal home that can provide class and eco-friendliness.
Just look at the design highlights of his futuristic and modern home which was architected by David Austin:
A striking solar-insulated glass atrium covers the mansion’s indoor recreation area and 80ft pool and leads the eye to a bow-shaped gallery capped by a glass turret with panoramic views of the surrounding countryside. The house is spread across 11 levels that incorporate several self-contained apartments, a Jacuzzi and sauna, a games and TV room, two squash courts and a bowling alley. The garage is big enough for eight vehicles, and around one of the bedroom wings flows a water canal that cascades into a lagoon. Architect Andy Rathbone designed the parkland and gardens, the most striking feature of which is a curving lake, which has extraordinary bird sculptures and serves as an eco-friendly heat-exchanging system to control the temperature in the house.
