MUCH MORE THAN MEETS THE EYE – noir by davidcliff – This home is truly one of the most deceiving (in a good way) homes I’ve ever seen!
I first saw this home many years ago and was mesmerised then and things haven’t changed, since then I have been fortunate to see and sell many unique homes, but this must be right up there as one of the most unique, interesting, and versatile ever.
Let us start with the setting, Farley Hill, for many this would already be enough to have your hand up making an offer, but we haven’t really started yet.
The gated entrance screens things well and on entering, the size of the frontage is quite surprising, ample parking to one side and lovely gardens to the other setting the scene well and this has all happened before you get inside!
So, we wander inside and be prepared, you will have to go around at least twice before you can take this all in, it’s special and I guarantee you’ll forget some rooms even exist.
Let us start with the living space, a main reception room, living room with dual aspect and a lovely size with stunning feature fireplace and log burner for those cosy winter nights, this along with some exposed timbers just add character and interest. The dining room is then to the other side of the entrance hall with an opening through to the kitchen. This almost gives the best of both worlds, an open plan flow yet separate space …. That said, if you did want to open up and create that space that many desire, you can. This kitchen itself is well-fitted in a contemporary style, sleek and seamless with a genuinely useful and purposeful central Island.
We’ll ignore the three bedrooms down here for a moment that sit to the rear and complete the living space because it gets even better. To the far end you come to an extension of the hallway that can take you off to the right and the utility room and garaging and then to the left passing a large well-fitted shower room. You have a walk-in shower here with rain head and side jets so just stand there and enjoy.
