A home featured on Grand Designs that used ancient steam bending technique to curve wood has been placed for sale for £1.65 million.

Tom and Danielle Raffield bought the gamekeeper's lodge in 2011 in Sithney, Cornwall, but with the home being just 44m2 they decided they needed to extend the Grade II property.
