  On the edge of a tranquil nature reserve a few miles inland from the Suffolk coast, you’ll discover the silver-tiled Balancing Barn, half of which projects off the side of a slope, seemingly  suspended impossibly in the air.

  Inside, the house has been beautifully designed and kitted out with high-spec fixtures and fittings, and you can enjoy panoramic views over woods, ponds and meadows through the huge windows.
