A superb contemporary home with exceptional leisure facilities.
The Beeches is an outstanding property which has been built to an exacting standard of construction and design. It combines the very best elements required for contemporary family living and despite its scale it is a comfortable and manageable home.
It is a beautifully presented property incorporating high quality fixtures and fittings and an impressive symmetry. This smart home has been installed with a large number of state of the art hi-tech fittings including extensive security systems.
The house is set well back from Dunstan Lane and approached via a tarmac drive leading to a parking and turning area beside the detached triple garage block with super fast 22kw 3 phase car charger installed. It continues beyond the house to the offices and hangar and the paddock.
The house is accessed via a stunning hand-made copper plated front door incorporating a sophisticated closing and sealing security mechanism. The hall has a marbled tiled floor and an impressive central floating staircase with ash treads, copper inlays and a copper and ash balustrade. The hall is flanked by two excellent reception rooms including a drawing room with a Venetian plaster ceiling, recessed lighting and a flame effect fire with a stone chimney piece.
The family kitchen is a superb room, accessed by double walnut doors (which are also used throughout the remainder of the property) with a bespoke kitchen and a good range of storage units together with an island featuring burnished copper panels and doors. The work surfaces are of corian and granite. There are dining and seating areas, all with the benefit of views through French doors over the gardens and grounds. Beyond the doors is a glazed Juliet balcony. Off the family kitchen is a fully equipped back kitchen and a laundry room.
Stairs lead from the hall to a lower ground floor and the quite exceptional leisure suite. A corridor passes a glass fronted wine store and on the opposite side is a fully equipped cinema room with air conditioning. The corridor leads to the indoor pool, again with French doors framing the view outside and allowing plenty of light.
Off the pool room is a fully equipped glazed gym, also with air conditioning. The pool room opens into a paved sunken garden with outside seating, areas for sunbathing as well as outdoor cooking, dining and a hot tub.
On the first floor are four spacious and light suites and stairs to a fifth suite, which might be suitable for a member of staff. The principal bedroom really is most impressive, with a large dressing room and en suite bathroom, as well as access on to a balcony which overlooks the garden and land.
Outside there are extensive grounds, with mature trees and attractively landscaped gardens incorporating an impressive water feature. On the far side is a substantial building housing an office ideal for home working and a hangar, workshop or overflow garaging. It could also be adapted for stabling for horses grazing the adjoining paddock. The total area is about 1.87 acres.
The quality of the design and finish at The Beeches is quite remarkable. The owner has considered every little detail in each area of the property and its land, resulting in a fantastic family home with the most impressive facilities.Charlie Kannreuther
