Sweethaws Wood was designed in 2013 by the cutting-edge contemporary architect Piers Smerin. Sweethaws Wood won a 2014 RIBA South East Region and RIBA National Award and a 2014 Structural Steel Design Awards Commendation. The house is designed into the hillside, offering accommodation over three floors, and directly connects with its idyllic ancient English woodland setting, just a short distance from the popular Ashdown Forest. Accessed down a quiet country lane, Sweethaws Wood offers a peaceful, private and secluded home.

The front of the house is clad in corten steel with a folded steel plate bridge leading up to the front door. The other faades offer thermowood and floor to ceiling glazing taking advantage of the stunning backdrop.

The kitchen/dining/living space is open-plan with two substantial sets of sliding doors opening onto the magnificent terrace that is suspended from the projecting roof high above by stainless steel rods. This terrace wraps around the back and side of the house and overlooks the pond beyond.
