He looks great when he's young and fresh, but even as he ages and grows grey, he still looks sophisticated; a true silver fox. Or silver ash, as the case may be.

He is, of course, a timber home. And this round-up of the country's hottest timber homes will leave you feeling a little flustered. Don't worry, it's not 'the change', just the power and beauty of a quality timber home...
