Thornfield House has been subject to an extensive reconstruction and major extension programme which has recently been completed. The property was awarded a Civic Award from Richmond and District Civic Society for the re-modelling of an existing dwelling into a piece of sculptured architecture. Presented to an exceptionally high standard, Thornfield House has been designed for modern lifestyle. The living spaces have been re-designed to be opened up towards the breath taking views, maximising available light and accommodating an open living environment resulting in a stunning property where every attention to detail has been thought of. The front door opens into a light and airy reception hall with an oak floor off which the main reception rooms can be accessed. The superb breakfast kitchen features a good range of floor and wall units, a centre island with breakfast bar, Corian work surfaces and integrated Neff appliances. Steps lead down to the fabulous family area that has Kloeber bi-fold doors to two sides of the room making the outside feel very much part of the interior and giving uninterrupted views over the magnificent countryside. Designed with split levels to allow as much light into the rooms as possible, steps lead down from the breakfast kitchen to the south elevation to an open breakfast room with a French door out to the garden and built in seating area utilising the steps, this leads up to the dining room which features an atrium of light right up to the roof with a galleried landing overlooking the dining room. These reception rooms all boast underfloor heating and finely honed travertine floors. Beyond this lies the study which benefits from an Ekol dual aspect multi fuel stove which it shares with the extremely impressive drawing room.

The ground floor also boasts two boot rooms at either end of the reception hall, one leads through to the utility room and the other leads through to the garage; there is also a ground floor cloakroom. The immaculate attention to detail continues on the first floor, an oak curved staircase leads up from the reception hall to a light and airy landing off which are four double bedrooms, two house bathrooms and the gorgeous master bedroom. The master suite includes a luxury en-suite shower room, a walk-in wardrobe and Bi-fold doors to two sides with a suspended balcony taking advantage of the spectacular far reaching views.
