Security, glamour, chic, contemporary, traditional, character, luxury and lifestyle are just some of the words that this grand house conjures on viewing. Sitting behind secure entry gates complete with video phone access, the house sits in grounds measuring just under an acre. On entering through these gates you re initially met by the large sweeping drive and accompanied all the way by the glorious show planting, mainly of roses, which boarder the walk or drive to the front door(s). Once inside the glamour of the property is instantly felt, the grand entrance hall usually decked with wooden parquet flooring has been given a face lift into the 21st century by large stone tiles and a stark white back drop which contrasts superbly with the furnishings. This neutral palette allows the buyer to update regularly without the need for work. What follows the entrance hall is a myriad of large open flowing rooms suitable for relaxing and receiving or entertaining guests in style. As in most homes the kitchen is the heart of the home; delicious gadgets, granite and beech, islands, cooking stations, wine coolers and of course the integrated surround sound system which features through the property on both floors.
Of the eight bedrooms the property currently offers, four bedrooms have en-suite facilities whilst there is a further two bath/shower rooms. The master suite is a dominant space, drenched with natural light the bedroom alone measures 21 x 17 . Other parts to the suite include the dressing room and en-suite.
As eluded to in the opening sentence the essence of this house is founded on modern lifestyle choices. The gymnasium, tennis court, hot tub/Jacuzzi room all reflect the vendors healthy lifestyle and allow privacy to enjoy essential past times in the comfort of their own home. As the property has two entrances, effectively with a little work an annex quarter could be created where the gym and bedroom above is now. This would be perfect for au-pairs, elderly relatives or teenagers who want some freedom.
Externally to the rear the award winning garden delivers design excellence and an experience rarely felt outside of stately homes or show gardens. Walking along the limestone paths past the raised Koi water features and down into the sunken grotto complete with fire pit and surround sound music the viewers senses tingle with excitement of what is to come. On leaving the grotto you can walk through the vine covered pergola back towards the house or continue onwards past the elongated water features to the tennis court or further on to the Jacuzzi hut. Eventually discovering the immaculate lawns which at the time of writing had late summer early Autumn blooms singing and competing with each other for attention.
The award the garden won was the The National Landscape Awards 2010 Principal Award Winner for - The Domestic Garden Scheme.
Another of the external fixtures is the BBQ, it is not often I would give mention to such an everyday item but this isnt an everyday item and is a serious bit of kit for the man (or women!) who love to hold garden parties.
