Statement décor has been used to full effect, creating an artsy, on-the-beat atmosphere that is at ease with itself. Careful attention to detail and design is evident in the bespoke open plan dining kitchen and luxury bathrooms, with solid oak doors throughout.
Electric gates open to reveal a sizeable gravelled driveway edged by mature trees and hedgerows alongside a neat front lawn. You’ll find lots of parking and a garage, as well as an integral storage area. The monocouche grey rendered, cedar and oak-clad façade with rear steel cladding ensures the home blends seamlessly into the surrounding countryside.
A canopied front entrance leads through into a striking black-and-white hallway that epitomises the property’s self-assured aesthetic. Bespoke integrated cupboards beneath the stairs offer plenty of storage, keeping the high-polish concrete-effect porcelain tiles clutter-free to reflect the light from the front window.
Bring the Outdoors In
From the hallway, double doors swing open, and the porcelain tiles continue into a jaw-dropping open-plan spot-lit kitchen/breakfast room with water-fed underfloor heating, flowing into a dining area with solid oak flooring.
To the kitchen a wonderful family space, six-metre bi-folds to the rear and three-metre bi-folds to the side meld this spacious entertaining area with the 120 square metre terrace. Large garden bi-folds in the dining room also establish a sense of easy movement that’s perfect for parties.
Exposed steel, reclaimed brickwork, and self-cleaning skylights further enhance the contemporary feel. At the same time, a built-in Charnwood log burner with log storage, TV unit and Cambridge wired ceiling speakers keep the vibe laid-back and cosy.
The bespoke handmade kitchen from The White Kitchen Company features a fantastic range of cabinets in Farrow & Ball railings/blue and a six-seater kitchen island with Silestone worktops throughout. There’s plenty of storage thanks to the integrated pantry cupboards, cocktail cupboard, and a walk-in pantry with oak-effect shelving, with space left over for a study zone.
Integrated appliances include two Neff ovens, microwave and coffee machine; a Bora island hob with integrated extractor; a Quooker hot water and filtered water tap; a double dual-control wine fridge; dishwasher and triple bin.
The adjacent utility comes with new handmade kitchen units, two double cupboards, a large American-style plumbed-in fridge-freezer, sink, washer/dryer, and access to the side of the property. It also houses the controls for the underfloor heating system.
From the hallway, you’ll find a downstairs cloakroom with identical floor tiling, high-quality nature-themed wallpaper and a pink metro splashback, plus a large walk-in storage cupboard with plumbing for a shower. Just to the left is a front-facing gym or fifth bedroom with a large window and rubber gym flooring.
Meanwhile, the dining room connects into a recently refurbished lounge boasting new wiring, plastering, carpets and in-built double storage cupboards; hidden house mains and fuse boards; an internally wired TV Sky HDMI point; eight dimmer spotlights; and large bi-folds to the garden.
A door also leads you to the cinema room, which has two windows to the front, Cambridge & Dali speaker 7.1 Dolby atoms surround, ceiling speakers, a 106-inch cinema projector screen and 4K projector, digital dimmer mood switch and ceiling spotlights.
Upstairs, a large galleried landing, including an airing cupboard with new water tank, leads right into two large suites facing the front and rear, respectively.
Bright and spacious, bedroom one overlooks the garden and offers a walk-in dressing room with bespoke wardrobes crafted locally by Edward Berry Furniture Design. The en suite bathroom benefits from underfloor heating and concrete-effect tiling, a walk-in rainfall shower and freestanding tub, basin and loo, accented by rose-gold taps and fittings.
The striking second bedroom offers views from dormer windows towards Kilworth House. It links to a seating area and en suite bath and shower room, while a private staircase with storage rises to a mezzanine level currently used as a study.
Across the landing, the extensive dual-aspect third bedroom has been repurposed to become a teenager’s dream retreat and features spotlighting, a large seating area, and views to Kilworth House and the Kilworth Springs Golf Club.
The fourth bedroom to this floor is another great-sized double overlooking the golf club to the rear. A family bathroom completes the accommodation with grey wall-panelling and decorative black-and-white floor tiling, white metro tiles to the stylish walk-in rainfall shower, a deep freestanding bath, water-fed heated towel rail, basin and loo.
The serene garden, mainly laid to lawn and enclosed by a delightful variety of mature trees, shrubs, flowers and neat hedgerows, comes with a summer house with mains power and patio, plus a big purpose-built storage shed. The garden is kept more open to the back to capitalise on those lovely country views.
You can enjoy all this while savouring al fresco meals or drinks on the 120 square metre terrace, where the concrete-effect porcelain tiles meet the kitchen. The terrace is partly sheltered by an oak under-cover dining area, with two covered wired heaters keeping you and your guests warm as the evening draws on. There’s also oak wall seating for lounging and a secret oak door that leads to the new outdoor boiler.
When there is a wedding at Kilworth House, why not sit back with something bubbly and enjoy the fireworks?
