Applegarth is an exceptional detached contemporary house situated in a highly sought-after location. Completely overhauled and remodelled by the current owners, every aspect of the refurbishment has been executed with considerable style and attention to detail using the highest quality fixtures and fittings providing a luxurious finish. The views are breathtaking and the manicured gardens are extensive and well maintained.

Upon entering the property there is a light, marble travertine tiled entrance hallway providing access to all of the ground floor rooms with under floor heating, and featuring a contemporary wood and glass staircase that leads to a generous first floor landing.

The lavish drawing room is a beautiful dual aspect room with excellent proportions. There is a herringbone effect Amtico floor, a handsome Bath stone fireplace with Handöl wood burning stove, vaulted ceilings and folding doors leading to the rear terrace, which affords spectacular views across the manicured gardens towards the city. Of particular note to the ground floor is the stunning open-plan kitchen/dining/family room with its sleek marble travertine floor and two superb fireplaces, one with a fabulous wood burner. There is a striking bespoke curved window that offers breathtaking views over the city. The modern customised Bulthaup kitchen features a variety of integrated Miele appliances, coffee machine, Quooker tap, Gaggenau wine cooler and a central island unit with breakfast bar. Bi-fold doors lead out to a bespoke sheltered garden room, perfect for al fresco dining. This large, sociable space is well suited for modern day family living and entertaining.

Also on the ground floor is a snug/TV room with a feature fireplace and French doors to the terrace, a study, a useful utility room and a cloakroom.

On the first floor there is a stylish master bedroom with walk-in wardrobe, en suite shower facilities and a dual aspect. There are three further bedrooms (one with an en suite shower room) and a family bathroom.

On the second floor is a fifth bedroom with open-plan en suite bathroom, useful eaves storage space and views across the treetops. The ground and first floors feature under floor heating and an undercroft to the house gives access to the boiler cupboard/plant room. There is also a water softener.

Applegarth is approached through wrought iron gates and has a block-paved driveway providing extensive parking and access to a double garage with electric doors. Mature borders and specimen trees to the front of the property offer privacy and seclusion. To the rear is a beautifully landscaped south-west facing garden with large sun terrace, specimen trees, an ornamental pond and borders with a variety of plants and flowers - a real oasis within the city.
