In finer detail
Dove Close was constructed in 2002 by award-winning architects and builders Rajkowski. The property was designed by the current owners with peace and quiet in mind. Having worked in the manufacturing sector for decades, the one box that had to be ticked when the opportunity to build their own home came around, was a precious thing in life that’s all too often taken for granted ‘silence’. Being constructed using block and beam floors on the ground and first floors along with solid internal walls throughout this properties noise cancelation is second to none. Another key benefit of this construction style is the energy efficiency impact. Having underfloor heating throughout is one of the most efficient forms of heating it’s also the most pleasing to live with. Long gone are room hotspots with traditional radiators this is replaced with ambient balanced temperature in all parts of every room.
What strikes you when you first approach the property is its fantastic position being surrounded by countryside on the edge of the pretty village of Snitterfield. The property is placed in the middle of the plot giving you a feeling of openness and space. Although the property was constructed in the last twenty years it feels much older with the clever use of one of my favourite building materials Oak. The oak detailing using traditional methods of Oak pegged joints and herringbone brickwork set off the front elevation perfectly.
Entering via a gorgeous reception dining hall your eye is immediately drawn to the beautiful exposed oak beams both in the ceiling and walls along with the modern Oak staircase which is a real focal point of the space. This is a very impressive space to greet friends and loved ones.
Off to the right is a spacious sitting room that also boasts the exposed beams and has an impressive fireplace using reclaimed materials again giving the illusion of a much older property. An important factor when designing a reception room is getting the right proportions. Get it wrong and you create a long thin room that never seems to work. There’s no such issue in this room where the shape and proportions blend perfectly. This is undoubtedly a room that will be enjoyed throughout the whole year, cozy enough for family gatherings over the festive period relaxing in front of the fire, but large enough to comfortably hold most guests visiting for a summer party.
Located in the middle of the property at the rear is a room that offers great flexibility depending on your requirements. Currently being used as a snug, it has formerly been used as a study but could also serve as a 4th bedroom.
Off the dining hall is a well-appointed guest W.C fitted with Cherry Maple wood bespoke vanity unit and storage cupboards
A home of this quality is not complete without a showpiece kitchen. Designed ahead of its time, is a large open plan family, breakfast kitchen. Like the other quality elements of this home, the kitchen is no different. Fitted by quality kitchen fitters Cotteswood of Chipping Norton using handmade Oak units, you can tell every part of this property was finished sparing no expense. Undoubtedly the heart of the home space runs from front to back therefore offering views from both aspects.
The current owners built the property to their specifications and design. They favoured room proportions over quantity when it came to the bedrooms. The property was designed with three bedrooms. However, with the first-floor space in excess of 1400 sq feet, it’s easy to see that the layout could be adapted to create a 4th bedroom if required.
From the first-floor galleried landing to the right you enter the impressive master suite. Offering almost identical proportions to the sitting room this is a fantastic space, having large en-suite bathroom fitted with Villeroy & Boch sanitary ware and triple walk-in wardrobes. The room is dual aspect meaning not only is the room flooded with light, but you also get a great vantage point of the surrounding views.
The second bedroom is located on the opposite side of the property, this was done deliberately to reduce any excess noise from family and guests. Within this room is a cleverly designed secret study fitted by well known craftsman Neville Johnson and disguised as a walk-in wardrobe. It’s in this room that you could create the fourth bedroom by dividing the space. To complete the change, you would simply need to add a window on the side elevation.
In truth, the third bedroom would rival the master bedroom in most homes. Located at the rear with twin windows offering lovely views of the garden and nearby countryside.
The four-piece family bathroom is fitted with Villeroy & Boch sanitary ware and is a lovely space to relax after a long day at the office.
Gardens & Grounds
The rear garden delivers everything you want from a rural property, space, maturity, privacy, and probably most important of all, the correct aspect for the sun – due south. The extensive patio area is an ideal place to unwind after a hard week.
To the front is a large block paved drive which could hold enough cars for even the largest of gatherings. There’s enough space to both sides of the property to build a garage (subject to the usual consents) should you require one.
Mains Water, electricity, and oil are connected.
