Sublime, Modern and Spacious House
A very striking house with voluminous, unusually light and flexible living space over four floors.
A brilliantly conceived, designed and executed double fronted contemporary detached house (7,004 sq ft) by international award winning Gregory Phillips Architects; occupying a large west facing plot with far reaching park views.
The spectacular entrance hall has dramatic nine metre ceiling height and tremendous volume, ideal for art lovers and collectors and this leads onto some of the best lateral space and reception space we have seen, ideal for entertaining on a grand scale, whilst also encapsulating all that is needed for modern family living.
A beautifully designed bespoke kitchen / breakfast / family room manages to be both open plan and intimate and has views over and level access to a beautifully landscaped west facing garden, as does the vast double height reception room with floor to ceiling windows and a mezzanine area; ideal as a study or work station, with inspiring views over the landscaped garden, its water features and beyond.
Furthermore, there is also a wood panelled reception room to the front of the house, ideal as snug / television room, but suitable for a wide variety of uses. There is also a good sized utility and boot room with a separate entrance and cloakroom off it.
Another cloakroom is found off the wood panelled entrance hall and there is also a well-equipped plant room and bike storage which rounds off the ground floor space.
Lower Ground Floor:
The lower ground floor is unusual in having high ceilings and affording plenty of natural light.
A large bedroom suite would be ideal for a nanny / au pair / staff member and there is also a cinema room / games room / gym and a secondary kitchen, which leads on to a control room and wine cellar.
The sumptuous bedroom suite is at the rear of the house with fabulous far reaching 180 degree garden and park views. The room has become known as the tree house by
the family and it certainly lives up to its name. There is also a large dressing room, with beautifully fitted wardrobes and storage and the bespoke en suite bathroom has a free
standing stone bath, separate walk-in shower and twin sinks.
There is a further large double bedroom with en suite bathroom separate steam room and two studies / home offices. One of these is a self-contained office overlooking the front of the house. The other is located on the mezzanine of the double height living room with an ingenious cupboard for books hidden in a staircase well, and with a spectacular view over the garden.
The top floor is given over to two further large, brilliantly balanced double bedrooms, both of which have plenty of storage and high end, fine line doors leading onto a secluded balcony, with far reaching spectacular leafy westerly views.
This floor also provides a truly massive walk-in attic which spans the width of the house and offers in excess of 320 square feet of storage. This has two windows and there is excellent natural light and ventilation.
The west facing garden is inspired by Dutch designer Piet Oudolf and brings the grasses and trees of Richmond Park right up to the house.
It extends into Beverley Brook at the back and affords unusual privacy, with views over Palewell Park and Richmond Park, beyond.
The garden is home to numerous mature trees including oak, maple, walnut and lime. The basalt terrace outside the kitchen ideal for lounging in the evening sun.
There is further wooden deck which extends over the pond and its waterfall, and offers a particularly tranquil feel.
