why you’ll like it:
Seriously glamorous and exceptionally sociable, guests will enjoy the wow factor of this Tudor style home which has remote and video entry with a double breadth driveway sweeping past large front gardens made private by mature hedges. The spacious entrance hall continues to impress, inviting both sunshine and rear garden views into the heart of this home, whilst the family friendly ethos behind the opulent design makes sure that there’s a big cupboard for coats and bags and a guest cloakroom carefully tucked away. A house for all seasons – and eras- energy efficient windows are in place and there’s a Sonos sound system in the main entertaining rooms.
the kitchen diner, gardens and utility
Sun filled and intercontinental in design, the kitchen diner has glass walls which bring in and fold open to private gardens with tropical planting and serene echoes of the eastern hemisphere.
Ideal to enjoy both with family and friends, triple skylights allow guests to dine beneath the stars, ambient lighting and Sonos sound sets the mood, underfloor heating/air con/hot air boost keeps the room welcoming at any time and a sophisticated wet bar is the centre-piece for parties and general entertaining. Safely tucked away from the social flow to the garden, the Italian Pedini kitchen is behind a stylish central island. Streamlined units keep the lines clean and simple – but don’t be fooled- there’s a lot of sophisticated storage hidden away including a deep larder which has an integrated coffee machine and Zip tap. All appliances are high spec Gaggenau and include touch induction hobs and teppanyaki, fan oven, steam oven and warming tray. Party perfect, twin tall fridges have large freezer drawers incorporating ice makers beneath and there is also a wine cooler to hand. For the true gourmands, there’s even a seconda cucina with more storage, gas hob, BBQ grill and deep fryer. The separate utility, to be expected in a home of this quality, is by the internal door to the garage -so sports kits can go straight into the machine.
Secluded and secure, an expert yet light touch has created connected “rooms” to explore. A level terrace flows easily from the house with sophisticated lighting and sound for al fresco dining (and enjoying the jacuzzi), and at the far end, there’s a tranquil area surrounded by bamboo ideal for quiet suppers when the children are in bed.
At the front, the sheltered south garden is child and pet friendly with a large lawn for play made private by tall hedgerows.
the media room, study and lounge
Sunny and spacious, the lounge is elegant of proportion and decoration. With French doors to the garden, this room is light and airy during summer whilst in winter, it transforms into a space perfect for family celebrations when you dim the lights and ignite the gas flame effect fire.
The state of the art media room is wired for surround sound and has cleverly-hidden bookcases and black lacquer cupboards for sophisticated storage.
Quiet and comfortable at the back of the house, the study has plenty of natural light and looks over one of the Asian influenced water features – keeping stress levels down.
the living room, conservatory and wet room
At the far end of the west wing, the living room is a cool haven in the heat but cosy in the evenings. Looking over the garden, it opens to a fabulous vaulted conservatory with its own access to the gardens at the front and back, and with a glamorous wet room close by with hand painted walls, gold hand basin and drench head shower, this part of the house could easily become an independent annexe for visiting relatives.
the first floor
At the top of a broad staircase, the landing has a south facing balcony with spectacular views over the city to the sea. Skilfully organised, the guest suite is private to the west, with calm decoration and ample wardrobe space as well as an en suite large enough for a corner bath. Central to this floor, the second large en suite bedroom has leafy views -and it would be ideal for an au pair as nestled between this room and the master bedroom are two more restful bedrooms as well as a practical family bathroom with designer fittings.
the master bedroom suite
Spanning the full depth of this substantial building, the serene Eastern influence throughout this home is used to great effect in the master bedroom which is all about relaxing in VIP style. You can enjoy the morning sun rising above the trees or setting over the distant water even from bed, and the wall of lacquered wardrobes has all the storage you could dream of, including space for a t.v and a fridge. Secret, Shoji style doors reveal a sensational, spa like en suite with both a bath and separate walk in shower, and the heated towel rail, shaving point and underfloor heating are worth a mention.
bear in mind:
This luxury home has an astounding 5069 sq ft to explore and a large attic.
