A ‘wooden spaceship’ property featured on Grand Designs has gone up for sale with the homeowners asking £1.1 million for the five bedroom ’roundhouse’.
The semi-circle shaped building in Deanshanger, near Milton Keynes, was created by Peter Berkin and his wife Chard who appeared on the Channel 4 programme in 2014.
At the time, Kevin McCloud described the property as ‘magnificent’ and likened it to a ‘giant wooden spaceship’.
The five bedroom house, which also boasts a cinema room, and is set in communal forest land with a meadow and pond, is currently on the market for £1.1 million,

Peter Berkin and his wife Chard built their dream home for £400,000, but the couple had to delay retirement, sell their former home and take out a loan to fund the project, which cost twice their original budget.
At the time, the programme’s presenter Kevin McCloud described the property as ‘magnificent’, saying: ‘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.’
But the build was believed to have left the couple at odds with one another.

When Kevin asked if they would be happy there and whether it had been a good experience, Chard responded: ‘Peter is going to be happy here. It has been positive because I am still here with him.’
In spite of Peter’s ‘love’ for the home, the house was first listed on the market for £1 million in 2016, and sold for £900,000
The house is in a village called Deanshanger, north east of Milton Keynes in Northamptonshire.
The property, which is built in a semicircular, has four sets of bifolding doors in the living area that bring help to bring the outdoors in.
Among the five bedrooms is a huge master, which boasts floor to ceiling windows as well as a walk-in-wardrobe
The property also features a cosy cinema room (pictured) and underfloor heating throughout the home
Alongside a cinema room, other features include underfloor heating throughout, a large separate utility room and an attached garage with its own cloakroom.
A listing on Zoopla, which has been viewed over 1,500 times in the past month, calls the home a ‘radical departure from regular new builds’.
The description continues: ‘Blending well into the landscape, clad in Siberian Larch under a planted roof, this intriguing ’round house’ actually spirals providing 5 bedrooms.’
The village has a range of facilities, including schools, a post office and a doctor’s surgery, while Milton Keynes has a mainline railway service to London’s Euston train station.
