Fascinating pictures show inside a famous Northamptonshire house after it was put on the market for £1.1million.

A unique five-bedroom detached house resembling the shape of a doughnut which once starred on Grand Designs has gone on the market for for £1.1million in Northamptonshire.
The property, which featured on the Channel 4 property show back in 2014, was built by Peter Berkin and his wife Chard. The couple spent £400,000 building The Roundhouse, which was showcased on the programme and lauded by presenter Kevin McCloud who described it as 'magnificent'. He said at the time: "It is almost as though a giant wooden spaceship has landed on top of Stonehenge and interlocked with it. It is beautiful. I always thought that the building was like a big embrace. It is very dynamic." The Roundhouse, which is in the Northamptonshire village of Deanshanger, boasts a huge 58ft living area wrapped around a circular courtyard that includes decking and a hot tub. The exterior walls are clad in Siberian Larch, and there is a planted roof. Other notable features are the eco house's solar panels and electric car charging point, its large plot with play park and in-ground trampoline and the communal forest land with meadow and pond.
