noir by david cliff - GATED AND GORGEOUS
This stunning, six bedroom, deceptively spacious 3,200sq foot family home is approached via a private gated entrance which draws you into a secluded street of just six similar houses, all of which were initially designed and built to an extremely high standard by Bewley. This is a "must see" home with no work to do, that is immediately available with no chain.
This three -story house has been extensively and recently modernised, from top to bottom - with no expense spared – by its current owners - an impression that is reinforced when arriving via the new and beautifully finished, bonded resin driveway which wraps around the entire property, and which also forms the rear patio.
The front door leads to a nicely appointed inner entrance and then onto a wonderful size reception hall, which not only makes a distinct initial impression, but also sets the tone and style for the rest of the property, The kitchen and reception rooms together with the designer garden that lie beyond,, are accompanied by generous bedrooms and en suite bathrooms that are located on the two upper floors.
Seeing is believing and the pictures do not really do the property justice but, the design features and additions that the current owners have made, are incredible and genuinely surprising. Wandering throughout this house you continuously notice design details, like the stunning clean lines of the porcelain tiling that sweep through the ground floor reception hall, into to the kitchen and breakfast room. The consistent floor finish not only complements but is also congruent with, the high gloss kitchen cabinetry which are themselves complimented by quartz work surfaces and upstands, all of which also offer plentiful storage and house integrated appliances of the highest specifications.
Impressive double doors then open from both the kitchen/diner and the dining room, with both areas integrating seamlessly with the landscaped gardens, which have been deliberately designed with minimal maintenance in mind and are equipped with very realistic artificial lawns throughout. The lovely rear garden provides a quite stunning summer entertainment space enjoying views of blue sky and treetops.
Back inside to the living room, which at sixteen feet wide not only provides plenty of space but also makes a real difference when placing furniture around the gas-coal limestone surround fireplace. The versatile central study provides a well-positioned home-office, one that truly works, not only with sufficient space for two workstations but that is also equipped with integrated air-conditioning.
Back to the beautiful reception hall and the staircase, which is a keynote feature, that rises to a very large open galleried landing and creates a void large enough to incorporate a very tall Christmas tree.
Wandering around the first floor the design offers five bedrooms, one of which is air conditioned and two of which have been repurposed and professionally fitted-out by the current owners as “his and hers” dressing rooms . In keeping with all of the other features of this unique home, the quality of workmanship is exceptional. The bathrooms and bedroom en suites’ have also been transformed and are equipped with materials and fittings of the highest quality.
Onward and up to the second floor where there is a vast air conditioned space (which was part of the original Bewley design compete with sound-deadening concrete floors), together with an en-suite bathroom. This space which might be employed variously as either a large master bedroom, cinema/games room, or study. This room is flooded with natural light as it is equipped with three Velux windows, two of which are full height and one of which incorporates a Cabrio walk- out balcony, an amazing feature that not only allows natural light to pour in, but it also provides the most amazing far-reaching views.
Moving outside again and in a little more detail at the front: we have touched upon the high-quality resin bonded driveway, leading to two electronic, Horman roller garage doors that provide access to the double garage which has been laid with specialist interlocking, bonded floor tiles. Furthermore, the driveway is equipped with five , electro-mechanical, telescopic rising security posts that can be deployed in less than 8 seconds at the touch of a button. The house is wired for broadband, and it alarmed and equipped with CCTV and security lighting. The security bollards, garage doors, CCTV and security lights can all be accessed and operated by fobs as well as remotely by smart phone - 24hrs a day from anywhere in the world (subject to broadband or mobile phone signal).
To the rear, the current owners desired a maintenance free space to both relax and entertain, and this is exactly what they have had created. A full width, shaped, resin bonded, granite edged sun terrace allows so much space to enjoy and to host, in equal measure. It is also complete with a BBQ area, all of which is located around the large the artificial lawn. A weaving shingled and granite border winds through on both sides, completing and framing this stunning entertainment space.
