why you’ll like it

With countryside views at the front and a fabulous garden at the back, this spacious home balances the convenience of the city with a quieter, luxury lifestyle and a creative, stylish eye has ensured that the interior is ready for your move.

the entrance

Private behind remote control gates of your choice – all electrics are in place – the spacious front court has underfloor heating which clicks on at the warning of frost and continues into the triple car port and store room to the left, which have been specifically fitted with all services so that should you wish to extend the ground floor of the house, it would be possible, subject to the usual consents. The front of this whitewashed villa, with timber framed energy efficient windows, has clean lines and an appealing balance, and triple arches on the ground floor house two secure garages and the lit, main entrance to the house, although there are steps to the side gate for supermarket deliveries.

Inside, the entrance hall is broad and gleams with porcelain flooring. Access door to the left leads to the twin Garages, with a spacious room to the right, currently being used as a music room. A sculptural steel and glass staircase introduces you to the chic internal design that you’ll find throughout this magnificent house, which is also a comfortable home.

the living room

Sunlight and woodland views stream into this fabulous, L-shaped room with plenty of space to relax together or to entertain friends. The front wall is mainly glass, with curved windows adding a touch of glamour and patio doors open to a balcony running the full length of the building where friends can enjoy the woodland opposite, and the glass balustrade means that you can enjoy the vista even when seated inside. Calm decoration and the gentle colours of the solid walnut flooring keep the focus firmly on the leafy views and there’s even a window in a second wall, so this room is particularly light, too.

the dining room

Shimmering with iridescent designer paper, you can seat ten with comfort in this elegant room which has an intricate, but hardy solid oak parquet floor. Quiet and private, the south west wall is all glass, sliding open to the sun terrace and garden, so guests can enjoy cocktails in the garden before moving in for supper.

the kitchen diner

The stunning kitchen diner is awash with light and full of character and the far wall folds open to the sun terrace and hot tub, inviting you outside. Skilfully organised, the central island for the preparation of food has a sink and hose tap at one end and a sociable breakfast bar at the other, and there’s a split pair of wine fridges in between – one for white and champagne, the other for reds, each of which can be set for temperature. Black reflective units conceal sophisticated storage and are topped by dramatic quartz which flashes silver. The Smeg multi-fuel range could stay, there’s an integrated microwave/combi grill with a deep warming tray and plumbing is in place for both a dishwasher and a washing machine, with a discreet “clearing” area organised along a run on the far wall.

the garden spa

Outside, the attention to detail continues in the sunny garden which has a spa like, holiday feel. By the house, the sun terrace is paved with polished sandstone for easy al fresco dining with lighting for supper parties, and making the most of its plot, it’s a sun trap and sheltered as well as being very private. The hot tub beckons to one side, and on the other is a power shower opposite a site for a sauna, and again, all services are in place.  A raised water feature with fountains at each end runs above the dining terrace and also along the front of the second, broad tier of garden, sun kissed and with a mix of materials to enjoy as you bathe in the sunshine. Up at the top, with remote control lighting, the third private tier backs on to trees and is the ideal spot for quiet suppers with guests, once the children have gone to bed.

two double bedrooms and shower room

Both light, airy and ready to move into, each have wonderful views, one looking over the garden terraces at the back and the other looking over woodland, which makes it very private too. The luxury shower room is central to the first floor and is Jack and Jill in style for ease of access from the living rooms as well. Glistening in gold and brown tiling, the walk in shower has a fashionable dual head system, a touch light mirror and a heated rail for towels.

the master suite

Be pampered and sleep well in this peaceful, private master suite at the top of the house with its own balcony for morning coffee or romantic nightcaps. All about recharging your batteries, the proportions are instantly relaxing and generous enough for it to be two rooms. There’s a walk-in closet with sensor lighting, and wrapping around to the front of the house, the glittering en-suite is to die for, with a double-ended bath, wet room style jet power shower, heated rail and twin hand basins.
