TRUE CLASS ALWAYS SHOWS - noir by david cliff – This simply must be one of the best built homes I have ever seen.
Whether this home is ultimately for you or not we defy anyone to find fault in its construction or attention to detail.
I first saw this site many years ago and knew it would be something very special, after some blood sweat and tears a stunning gated community has been created.
Broad Haven was designed and now owned by the original landowners and they were keen to create something truly bespoke with no expense spared, and it shows. They have sensibly retained ownership of the entire driveway entrance thus ensuring it’s look and style with access allowed over for the neighbouring dwellings.
The totality appraoches 4000 sq feet and oozes class, even entering the second set of gates you see the extensive driveway bordered in (marble slips) which extend around the curtilage, room here for numerous cars so families or entertaining will be no problem. The manicured frontage then leads through the covered entrance and into the reception hall.
First sight is of the stunning, centrally positioned bespoke Oak staircase as the reception hall wraps around it, this staircase is of such style and quality that it genuinely feels like a piece of sculptured furniture created for this space.
Wandering to your right you will discover the large cloakroom which is as you would expect and then further round to the impressive office / study which has more than enough room top really function as a full blown office rather than occasional work space.
Angled double doors the take you from the reception hall into the main drawing room, the dimensions here really work, just that extra width giving you options to furnish around the fireplace, bi-folds give views and access onto the landscaped gardens.
In a home that is as stunning as this it’s hard to create ‘wow’ rooms that stand out, but this dining room is one such room. The double height void lifts the ceiling height up to the first floor which in turn allows for the double height wall of glass that then creates both an internal and external feature, simply immense. This room then cleverly links to the kitchen/ breakfast / family room through internal bi-fold doors creating an amazing space for parties.
Now into the huge kitchen / breakfast / family room, this space is so so special and the choice of kitchen is one that I would have never chosen but I love, the combination of bronzes and black may not sound ideal but it’s spectacular, sleek and stunning! Integrated Siemens appliances include two single ovens, steam oven and microwave and with family life and parties being busy things you also have two dishwashers and three fridges, one of which is the very much needed wine fridge.
Central Island units can often be added simply because we’re all supposed to have one but it really makes the space here, room to sit and chat, grab a quick bite but also so much room to prep and serve, it really does balance things well.
One thing we do all need, the utility room, a live saver, room to hide everything, sort the dogs out or just store those things that you don’t want on show. The added bonus here is the further shower room and loo so no excuses for dirty shoes or children to enter without being hosed down first.
Time now to take more detailed look at the stunning staircase as it takes you up to the incredible galleried landing. Looking down into the voids either side it makes you real how impressive a feature a landing can be, with some thought.
We then have four impressive en suite bedrooms on this floor including the master which is a suite worthy of this home. The dressing room is well fitted and leads through to a stunning bathroom en suite with separate shower and dual sinks, the quality here is quite incredible as it is throughout. Versatility was also something very much in mind when designing this home and whilst you can see options as you wander around, it is particularly evident when you venture up the second bespoke staircase to the top floor.
When I walked into this space I was instantly running through all the options open here, the space is vast, approaching 40ft across and currently furnished as a very push gams room / movie room but with a fitted kitchen nicely positioned in one recess and a HUGE bathroom hidden away. This opens man options, mast suite, 5th bedroom, 5th and 6th bedroom for that matter and then an annexe for older children or Au Pair suite…..the choice is yours or you can change as life changes.
Moving outside we have a very classy, yet simple landscaped garden and it looks great. The stonework surrounding the large central lawn runs seamlessly and gives a terrace area that runs along the rear of the home giving some private space to relax and bathe. This paving then continues to one side taking you to the rear boundary which gives a much larger space which has also very cleverly had water, electricity and drainage run to it so you should you want to create an area for garden office, annexe or a more defined dining area it’s all here for you to do in your style.
Al in all this is quite some home and one that would you be well advised to come and see, experience, and take in for yourself.
