This eco-friendly house is an automated ‘smart home’ and sits in an “enchanting” woodland setting. 

Botony Wood, in Farnham, was built using Passivhaus construction principals, with eco features such as controlled airtightness and insulation. 

The house includes a ‘comms room’, which is used to fully automate the smart home features of the property, including control of the lights, blinds, temperature and security systems.
