The substation is part of an RAF heritage site, with the building very much in the modernist style of the era.

It’s obviously a million miles away from a utility now, although the character of the original building remains. The large windows in the main living areas, the more modest glazing in the bedrooms and of course, that rather stern brick exterior. This is still very much a period build.

But inside it’s a different story. The finish, the double glazing (in keeping with the look), the bright, open reception area, the contemporary kitchen. You get the idea. Underfloor heating too, which you might not expect.

As for space, that includes an entrance hall, inner hall, cloakroom, large open plan living room / dining room (which access the kitchen area) on the ground floor. A first floor landing leads to three double bedrooms, one of which is a master with en-suite and the family bathroom.
