A cutting edge 5/6 bedroom family home in the commuter belt.
Outwood Farm is an impressive family home which has been designed to take advantage of its elevated situation with most of the principal living area, kitchen area and bedrooms at the rear of the house, enjoying elevated views for many miles. The house sits within an attractive leafy country lane on the fringes of Billericay, but within 5 minutes of the High Street and Station. The property has been thoughtfully designed to create a wonderful blend of impressive entertaining spaces that work perfectly for modern family living. With the layout emphasising open flexible spaces, one is able to tailor the home's functionality to suit everybody's individual needs. The construction has put a great deal of emphasis on energy efficiency. From the impressive entrance hall - with a contemporary staircase with glass balustrade - to the lower level entertaining area with home cinema, full kitchen and fitted bar, this house really does have so much to offer. Taking some 18 months to complete, the owner has given a great deal of consideration to every detail and by doing so has created a great home for 21st century modern living. Pride of place must go to the well designed, highly functional Poggenpohl kitchen/breakfast room with Gaggenau appliances and contemporary-style cabinets and Corian and marble tops, and includes two ovens, steamer, warming drawer, wine cooler, full height fridge and larder amongst the integrated appliances, which are anchored around a centrepiece island with breakfast bar. The room forms the entire rear width of the house providing a light-filled room with a range of bifolding doors opening onto a substantial terrace and enjoying far-reaching views. The room flows seamlessly into a casual dining and sitting area featuring under-heated marble flooring and at the end of the room a contemporary oversized off-floor gas fire provides a lovely focal point. Another feature of the room is the attention to detail in the ceiling with concealed shadow lighting which can be seen in many of the other rooms throughout the house. At the front of the property is a bespoke fitted office with full height windows, shadow ceiling lighting and on the opposite side is a separate dining room, again with under-heated tiled floor and deep windows with electric blinds. There is also a modern toilet room with shadow-lit mirror features, ultrasize tiling and aluminum mosaic details to match the bespoke console.
This is an extensive and versatile area which includes an award-winning home cinema with 14 speakers, subwoofer and a 15 ft screen, a fully fitted kitchen which includes a comms room, and a large full bathroom including walk-in shower, multi-feature lighting and bespoke furniture. At the rear is a full-width open plan entertaining room which includes a fitted bar with leather-clad units, hidden sink, smart oven and microwave, fridge, freezer and dishwasher, and a run of bifolding doors overlook the gardens and leading on to the lower terraces, ideal for entertaining and al fresco dining.

The principal bedroom suite is at the rear of the property comprising a snug enjoying fantastic views over the grounds and beyond, principal bedroom with bifolding doors onto a glass-retained balcony, fitted dressing room with bespoke furniture with a gloss glass finish, and again the room has bifolding doors onto a retained balcony.

The family bathroom is a highly impressive room featuring a concealed TV in the full-width mirror, electrically-controlled privacy glass in the window, walk-in shower, bath tub, digital shower fitments and shadow lighting, making for a truly welcoming room. There are two further bedrooms on the first floor situated at the front of the property with fully fitted wardrobes in a contemporary satin glass finish, with matching drawers and bed frames, and a staircase rises to the second floor, a versatile area comprising an office or sitting room and two large en suite bedrooms.The frontage is retained by contemporary fencing with matching double electric gates leading into a resin-bonded substantial drive and parking area for many vehicles and this in turn leads to the detached oversized garage with a self-contained bed/sitting room over featuring a Velux push-out balcony and en suite shower room. At the rear are two substantial porcelain tiled terraces, providing lovely al fresco dining spaces.
