A home featured on TVs Grand Designs this year could serve as inspiration for those considering a conservatory.
Pat Beckers The Round House in Devon overlooks the sea with a large upper terrace and conservatory to allow her to enjoy the seaside weather.
The home also features a large roof light at the top of the spiral staircase around which the rest of the house is built.
Grand Designs presenter Kevin McCloud called Pats home exciting and experimental.
"Pat commissioned an exciting, experimental house for future generations of her family to enjoy. In all kinds of ways its an extraordinary legacy," he said on the programmes website.
Those looking to install their own conservatory should take into account the position of the sun at various points of the day.
Another key factor in its positioning should be the view offered as one of the major benefits of conservatories is that they offer a great place to enjoy a nice view.
