Standing in 1.25 Acres of beautifully manicured Gardens, which incorporate an amazing outdoor Swimming Pool, Hot Tub, and Gym Complex in addition to full size all weather Tennis Court, Far Motley was acquired by our clients approximately six years ago and subsequently re modelled, refurbished and virtually rebuilt to a stunning specification.

The installation of the system has cost in excess of 100,000 and is truly the ultimate in operation of a contemporary home.

The highest of quality fixtures, fittings and materials have been used in creation of this stylish property including solid wood flooring, extensive down lighting, a glass and stainless steel staircase, a range of flat screen integrated Televisions, Gaganau Kitchen appliances, home cinema with projector, Philippe Starck design Principal En Suite Bathroom in addition to Villeroy and Boch Guest Bathrooms.

Whilst the inside of the house is truly stunning, it is what lies outside that is breathtaking in a beautiful setting which offers a rare seclusion and privacy.
