Standing in the space that will one day be a grand drawing room, the developer imagines the new owner seated at a grand piano.
Guests would mingle, chat by the roaring fire in winter time, and wander over to enjoy the beautiful views out over the sweeping lawns.
This room was designed to have a Ralph Lauren look, she explained. It was to be a formal space for entertaining, where the owners could spend time with their guests.
The magnificent house, with its Georgian-style frontage, has been designed to be a simply glorious country home for its new owners.
It is a project in progress, said the other developer. We are now looking for someone to come and complete it themselves or to take it forward with us.
They would be able to finish it as they would like it. In some ways it is a blank canvas.
They chose Chalfont St Giles for its immense convenience to London, as well as its charm and appeal.
It was voted Most Desirable Village in the UK and is a very, very attractive place. This plot is so private and with eight acres, had so much space to offer.
Their vision was to build a house with a classical exterior and a top specification, highly contemporary interior.
For me, the kitchen was always going to be special. This will be the hub of the household. Our plan was to have the kitchen at one end and then a fireplace in the centre, she said. There would be three sofas and a coffee table. Then at the other end, there would be an informal dining area.
She added: The formal dining area would have been close to this section too, and it was always our dream to add an orangery, which would look spectacular.
He said the master bedroom could be an incredible space as well.
It will be a wonderful room. It has been designed to be enormous - double aspect - with a working fireplace, and his and hers dressing rooms and bathrooms, he said.
He added: Another incredible part of the house will be the basement.
This fabulous lower level has been designed to house up to six Rolls Royces - or 10 other cars.
There will also be a cinema room, wine cellar, steam room, spa and gym, he said. There will be a swimming pool, where bi-folding glass doors will be able to be folded back on to the terrace and barbecue area.
This is private and south-facing, and so will be a superb place to spend time.
READY TO PERFECT
The four storey house will incorporate six different bedroom suites, making it ideal for an owner who enjoys welcoming guests. There will be a lift from the living areas up to the overnight accommodation, and down to the basement.
We were also going to build a garage block that had living accommodation above it, which could be suitable as staff accommodation perhaps, he added.
He continued: We could discuss different arrangements for completing it. There are all sorts of possibilities here and we would love to see it finished.
This could be an amazing home for a successful person who works in the city or spends time abroad. It would be perfect for someone who enjoys seclusion and relaxed living but also wants to be within reach of London and airports.
Built to a high standard by the current owners, using only the finest materials and visionary design, Hunters Moon is a stunning home. This commanding property is waiting for a potential buyer to add their own unique style to create the home of their dreams. The breathtaking elevations and striking views entice us to explore within. This house offers a sense of grandeur and is cavernous, providing around 14,500 sq ft of accommodation, a fabulous blank canvas to make your own. The interiors include a grand reception hall leading into the double aspect drawing room and then into a double aspect study. There is an impressive dining hall and a vast kitchen/breakfast room, perfect for entertaining. Six sets of magnificent double French doors leading to the glorious terrace generate an excellent social flow. This level also has provision for two cloakrooms, a pantry and a utility room.
LOWER GROUND FLOOR
The lower ground floor is truly a work of genius, with the potential for its own luxury spa. A tremendous indoor swimming pool room with a lofty glass atrium floods the area with light and opens onto the sheltered sun drenched lower terrace. A gym, sauna and steam rooms have been planned together with changing rooms, showers and cloakrooms are all waiting for the new owners to add their own finishing touches. There is space on this floor for a cinema room, laundry room and wine cellar.
One of the features included in Hunters Moon is the secure underground parking. Designed to be large enough to hold six Rolls Royce Phantoms or 10 other cars, the proportions provide security, space and protection for your vehicles.
The first floor enjoys a sumptuous master suite designed with two en-suite bathrooms and two dressing rooms. Two further well proportioned bedrooms that also have en-suites have also been planned. You will see fabulous high ceilings emphasising the sense of space while copious amounts of natural light flood through the ample windows. Views from every room allow us the opportunity to survey the land and observe the wildlife within the peaceful, tranquil and very private estate.
Ascending to the second floor you will discover the potential for three further double bedrooms with en-suites, or you may choose to create a guest floor and change the identity of one or two rooms.
SETTING THE SCENE
With eight acres of beautiful grounds, set in the heart of the rolling English countryside, Hunters Moon has an exterior beauty and tranquillity. Its magnificent lawns will be excellent for hosting summer garden parties and events while its terraces will be the scene of evening cocktail parties and pre-dinner drinks.
This is a part of the world where a lot of people are keen on horses and racing, he said. You could easily create paddocks here, where I could see a couple of thoroughbreds grazing. Equally, there could be space for people to enjoy other outdoor pastimes or to create wonderful gardens to their own tastes.
WITHIN EASY REACH
Chalfont St Giles is a quintessential English village on the edge of the Chilterns, with a traditional duck pond and small independent shops nestled around the green.
There are many good restaurants and excellent pubs nearby including Merlins Cave, well known locally for its Jazz sessions, and 'The Crown' in the high street which has a superb bistro menu. During the Great Plague of London in 1665, many wealthy Londoners escaped to Chalfont St Giles, these included John Milton who retired here and completed his epic poem 'Paradise Lost.' Milton's Cottage is still in the village, and is open to the public. Additionally, the area is renowned for its excellent schooling in both the private and state sector.
Hunters Moon is only a short drive from Chalfont Latimer Station which is served by both the Chiltern Line and London Underground Metropolitan Line, taking approximately 45 minutes to get to Marylebone. This corner of the Chilterns is extraordinarily convenient. Hunters Moon is only a short drive from the M25, M40 M4 and M1 and is within easy reach of all the London airports.
From the M40 exit at junction one and follow the A40, then A413 towards Amersham and Chalfont St Giles. At the double roundabout just outside the village of Chalfont St. Giles continue on the A413 towards Amersham. Take the next left to Mill Lane and follow the road as it dips through the ford and then climbs the hill on the other side. At the crossroads with Dodds Lane turn right to Hill Farm Lane. Hunters Moon will be found after a short distance on your left hand side.
