Tenure: FreeholdOriginally built in 2005 and occupying one of the most sought after and impressive garden sites within Darras Hall, is this magnificent modern mansion house. The property has a superb architectural design and is well set back from Runnymede Road, with gardens that run down to the River Pont at the rear. The grounds are stunning and have been very well landscaped and planted, as well as enjoying mature trees which give good screening and privacy.
The house has been designed and finished to an extremely high standard. The personal attention to detail is first class; with stunning international fittings, fixtures and furniture. Impressive stone pillars surround the entrance canopy and lead to the vestibule and reception hall, with magnificent limestone floor and reverse gull wing oak staircase. Solid oak skirtings and panelled doors are a major feature throughout the house. Internally most of the rooms have polished chrome fittings, standard lamps, power points and sockets. This house has been designed to an intelligent wiring standard, with the majority of rooms having remote control sensors to a central panel which controls the DVD, Sky and CD sound systems.
The principal reception rooms include a stunning drawing room to the south and western elevation, with beautiful fireplace and door onto the terrace. The snooker room is at the front and side of the property and accommodates a three quarter size table, as well as having a lovely fireplace and solid wood floor. Also connecting from the hall is a large cloakroom and separate wc. The family snug room is at the rear of the property and enjoys lovely views over the gardens. The day to day dining room and family breakfast room is the to the centre rear of the house, with a fabulous bay and glazed double doors leading onto the terrace and gardens. It is open through to the kitchen, supplied by Mowlem & Company, with stunning walnut cabinets, black granite worktops and a range of built-in appliances including a free standing cooking range and American refrigerator/freezer. The kitchen in turn leads on to a laundry and utility room with built-in washing machine and tumble dryer, as well as a gardener's wc. To the first floor of the house the first floor landing connects to its own study, which has a door onto the front terrace. The master bedroom suite has an en-suite dressing room and bathroom/wc with double wet room and sauna. There are three further double bedrooms to the first floor, all with walk-in dressing rooms and en-suite shower rooms. The staircase then leads to the second floor, where there is a substantial games room, currently used as a professional gymnasium with solid oak floor. This room would easily divide into two or three more bedroom suites if required. The detached double plus garage has its own studio above.
The property has a high quality central heating system, with quick recovery hot water cylinders and condenser boilers. The security system is also advanced, with closed circuit TV surveillance cameras extensively monitoring the exterior of the property and electrically operated gates to the main entrance.
The gardens and grounds that surround 126 Runnymede Road are very much a feature of the property, with the rear terrace having its own built-in six/eight man hot tub. The terraces themselves are finished in Irish quartz stone with beautiful box hedging and superbly stocked borders. The rear lawned garden is ideal for families and runs down to a small terrace with a bridge to the central island within the River Pont.
This is an extremely impressive home, which is located on Darras Hall's most sought after residential address. The house is adjacent to the Moor Lane entrance of Runnymede Road and therefore enjoys easy accessibility to local shops and restaurants.
