Amenities on the wider private development include a swimming pool, spa, tennis courts, basketball court, football pitch and restaurant.

But a week-long stay at the Glasshouse over New Year will set you back £25,000.

Due to the ‘high-end finish’ guests will also have to pay a £5,000 security deposit to stay in the luxurious property.

The house was built by Dutch architecture firm Mecanoo as a holiday home for a private client, but the owners have now started renting it out as a high-end holiday let through The Lakes By Yoo.

The Lakes By Yoo is a private estate of second homes and rental properties in 850 acres of lakes, meadows and ancient woodland.

The quirky property is the only home actually within the water. 

It is accessed by a single bridge, which was carefully angled so that it doesn’t disturb the existing plant life.

It was designed with a mostly glass facade to make the most of its leafy surroundings and lake views around it and make people in it feel they are living on the water.

Up top there is a terrace that can be accessed via a skylight door. From here, guests can soak up sweeping 360-degree views of three different lakes.

The house build project was a lengthy one, taking three years to design and complete by Boheme Development, Mecanoo and structural engineer Fernando Sarria. It was completed earlier this year.

It has 6,458 square feet of accommodation set over three storeys – and the features are impressive.

The cinema is state-of-the-art, with room for nine to watch movies on reclining seats, the hot tub can accommodate five people at a time and the games room has a full-size snooker table.

The roof terrace has a pizza oven, BBQ and seating area, so guests can make the most of warmer weather.

Commenting on the unique house design, a spokesman from architecture firm Mecanoo said: ‘The guiding design principle was to create a house that combines transparency with sustainability, forging a strong relationship between the villa and the landscape.

‘The house is designed from inside out, creating uninterrupted views to the surrounding nature while providing shelter and intimacy. All these aspects work together to ensure the house’s sense of timelessness.

‘The villa is situated in a green oasis of trees and plants that hide the house from view.

‘Glass corner windows in the living room, kitchen and other rooms, make the residents feel like they live on the water.’

The Glasshouse has a minimum stay of three nights.
