The Story
When he first reached the development, he saw homes of grace and elegance. And he realised he could give them stunning interiors to complement the fabulous setting.
When I first saw this development, I was captivated by the location and position - and I knew we could fit the homes out beautifully, said the current owner. They had real presence.
Surrounded by 10 acres of woodland, and in their own gardens of half an acre, the beautifully proportioned neo-Georgian homes are now equipped to a high standard.
With grand oak and iron balustraded central staircases, walk-in dressing rooms and en suite bathrooms, as well as top-of-the-range kitchen fittings, he has completed the homes to offer magnificent lifestyle opportunities.
And it is all set in the privacy of 10 acres of protected woodland with the luxury Celtic Manor Resort next door, he added.


The balanced façade of The Sain, where he lives himself, creates a striking first impression.
It's an impressive approach to the property, he said. I always like coming in. Double doors lead into a large open hallway, and then more open into the dining room and then the kitchen. It's great for us and the children, he added.
And The Lea offers much the same sense of spaciousness, which is so perfect for modern day living: If you open all the doors, the whole downstairs becomes an open space, great for entertaining, he said. And the ceilings are higher than normal, making it very suitable for antique furniture, too.


Both homes have been carefully designed for family living, with generous spaces throughout, where everyone can spent time together.
The kitchen dining room is my favourite room at The Sain. People always gather here, he said. The breakfast bar is served by stylish stools and all surfaces are in granite. Travertine flooring offsets the walnut units and Miele appliances, and brings a real touch of class and quality to the warm family space.
The kitchen dining room at The Lea is also one of the best rooms in the house, he went on. We enjoyed designing the fittings in a way that will make it one of the most pleasant areas in which to live.


Enhancing the theme of grandeur are the grand bespoke staircases in both homes.
These central features, with finely-crafted black iron balustrades and polished oak handrails, reach imposingly up to the four first floor bedrooms, and beyond to landings on the second floor, creating a sense of palatial flamboyance.
The staircases set the tone for the opulence of the homes, he pointed out.
The wonderfully spacious bedrooms are also superb features. Each bedroom has its own walk-in dressing room, fitted out in oak.
These really are like the movies, because there's so much extra space created, he said. The bedrooms are special features of our designs.


Leading from the master bedrooms are decked terraces, overlooking the garden. These give an added dimension to the rooms, he said.
Fitted throughout with premier quality carpets, the light and airy first floors lead to upper levels, each with a fifth well-appointed bedroom and another space, which would make a cinema room. Yet another area could readily be converted into a self-contained annexe.
The main en suite bathrooms feature yet more bespoke style and comfort. Double basins, walk-in showers and spa baths bring an air of pampered opulence.
These are high spec Vogue fittings, and these bathrooms make a great addition to the master bedrooms, he said.
And he added: These homes would appeal to anyone wanting to live a modern lifestyle with plenty of clean lines and space.
All in all, they are homes of real luxury.


The Sain and The Lea are two striking homes situated on an exclusive development of only four detached family houses. The gated entrance adds to the grandeur, while protected woodland and the Celtic Manor Golf Resort create a majestic backdrop. As the gates open, the sweeping drive meanders through the picturesque woodland setting that is Coldra Mill Park. The impressive pillared entrance creates a lasting first impression and from the striking reception halls beautiful bespoke staircases ascend to the galleried landings that form such a fine feature in each house. The bright and spacious halls combine tiled flooring with elegant décor, offering an an early indication of the quality of these homes. To the left double doors allow access to the drawing room with French doors that open to the rear garden. The drawing rooms are spacious and have feature log-effect fires that heighten the warm ambience and glazed doors that create an easy flow into the adjoining dining rooms which also boast French doors to the rear garden. Resting at the heart of each home is a stunning kitchen/breakfast room with an opulent amount of social space, walnut cabinets, granite work surfaces and Miele fitted appliances. A bank of French doors provide access to the rear garden, whilst filling the rooms with sun light. To the remainder of the ground floor there is a study/family room, cloakroom, utility room and access to the double integral garage.


Ascending the stairs you are greeted by the most impressive landing with its double sash windows and turned staircase that continues to rise to the second floor. The master suite enjoys French doors that provide access to the private terrace overlooking the rear garden. It also has an impressive Jacuzzi-style bath en-suite with twin basins and walk-in shower, together with a walk-in dressing room. To the remainder of the first floor there are three further double bedrooms, all with fitted walk-in dressing rooms and en-suite shower rooms.


On this floor there is flexible accommodation that includes an impressive guest suite comprising bedroom with en-suite bathroom and through sitting room/bedroom. There is also a large study/store room which could also be used as a further bedroom or hobby room perhaps.

The Sain and The Lea each have an immaculately maintained half-acre (STMS) garden, which is partly laid down to lawn and partly to woodland, with well-established oak trees.
These would be ideal for children's parties. You could easily get a fairground ride or bouncy castle in the garden.
Immediately beyond the garden, is the established 10-acre woodland, which is rich in wildlife. There are tree preservation orders on the woodland preventing further development.
The different colours of every season come through wonderfully in the woods, said the owner. And we have a bank of wildflowers, with snowdrops, wild poppies, primroses and bluebells.

The homes are beautifully situated within a quiet setting yet with good access to local amenities and major communication links.
These properties are ideal because they are in a country environment yet perfectly located for easy access, said the owner.
Coldra Mill Park is located on the edge of the village of Christchurch providing an array of shops and supermarkets. Only a few hundred yards away is the Celtic Manor Hotel and Golf Club which held the 2010 Ryder Cup.
