Tucked away on a quiet private road surrounded by woodland, the crisp and contemporary appearance of this home as your approach is quite modest. Once inside, however, its beauty, scale and impeccable design are immediately apparent and take your breath away.
Sleek and elegant with an ergonomic use of its substantial space, this home certainly delivers a luxury lifestyle customised to suit family needs. The high-quality finish is flawless with designer lighting and tiles seamlessly linking one well balanced room with the next while the whole house is warmed by underfloor heating.
A solid oak front door entices you into an immaculate entrance hall, its polished Porcelanosa tiles gleaming with light from a wall of glass that merges the home with its leafy landscape. A useful guest cloakroom, large separate utility room and an additional storage room, perfect for muddy boots and coats, run off the entrance hall.
To the right is a wonderful sitting room which is flooded with light from its triple windows overlooking the garden and glazed bi fold doors which give direct access to the sun terrace. It is a welcoming space with a high ceiling and underfloor heating to create warmth in the winter months as you curl up in a deep sofa.
At the opposite end of the house is the jewel in this home`s crown, the fabulous open plan living, kitchen, dining room. It really is a show stopper both in terms of its impressive size and creative design with two sets of bi fold doors effortlessly extending the living space onto the sun terrace.
The dimensions of the living space cleverly define a dining and seating area with ample space for a deep sofa and a large dining table and chairs. A contemporary remote-controlled gas fire sits in front of a striking feature wall at the back while a wall of bespoke walnut mid height cupboards link the study area with the kitchen.
The luxury Simon Bray kitchen at the rear of the living room is a visual delight with its mix of bespoke walnut and poplar cluster and pale turquoise high gloss lacquered cupboards. A sumptuous curved island topped with a raised glass breakfast bar sits above a gleaming granite work surface. It is a cook`s dream with all the high end integrated appliances that you would expect from a house of this quality including a NEFF oven, coffee machine and induction hob and a Bosch dishwasher.
Returning to the entrance hall a beautiful contemporary staircase with oak treads and glass balustrades winds you downwards to the lower ground floor showcasing the home`s contemporary, light filled interior.
The fresh modern feel of the upper floor continues throughout this floor with an open family room offering more versatile living space. A set of bi fold doors open directly onto the decking at the rear bringing the outside in offering comfort and play in equal measure as you are warmed by the sun.
The magnificent master bedroom suite at the far end of the hall offers a wall of windows with an additional glazed door allowing you to lie lazily in bed delighting in the spectacular tree top views. A contemporary, modern en-suite and bespoke walk in dressing room, both add to the feeling of luxury that the room certainly delivers on.
Two further generously sized bedrooms and a third with its own beautifully finished en-suite offer superb family accommodation. The immaculate family bathroom completes the floor.
With decking wrapping round the length of the house on both floors you have plenty of alfresco dining space and room to lie lazily in the sun. The garden is lush and green sloping down towards the woodland behind. Mature trees, hedging, plants and shrubs afford great privacy enabling you to enjoy the pleasures of the countryside tranquility the home enjoys.
This is a home that sits discreetly in its landscape yet delivers architecture that is bold and atmospheric. The current owner`s desire was for light, space and a connection with the outdoors and they have certainly achieved their aim. Her attention to detail has ensured stunning décor and fittings of the highest quality throughout. It really does offer a luxury family lifestyle that you could move straight in and enjoy. A must see!
