Copas De Arboles, Spanish for 'treetops', in Taverham, was redesigned after some objections from neighbours, despite the house getting planning permission.

Its developers listened to neighbours and lowered the height of the house as well as making it slightly smaller than the original, giving it a larger garden.

The house, off Scotch Hill Road, described as 'sensational' by the agent, overlooks the Wensum valley and fronts an area of private woodland. It is for sale for a big price-tag to match, for offers in excess of £1m.

A further level features three additional bedrooms, two with en suites and a family bathroom.
