A Lincolnshire self build on the site of an old quarry has gone onto the market for £1million.

The 'Glasshouse' is a four-bedroom home in Upgate, Louth, which uses a Mechanical Ventilation and Heat Recovery system (MVHR) as well as other eco-friendly features to provide an example of a contemporary self-build home.
