Award winning Italianate villa Sunnyhill stands on a private road with elegant gated access off a private road within walking distance of the village and Prestbury Golf Course.
Very occasionally a unique home is created which embodies style and grace, a stunning location and an homage to classic Italian design cues. This is the award winning Sunnyhill, winner of the prestigious Best Individual New Home in the North West Building Excellence Awards 2014.
Very attractive and well designed to maximise the southerly rear rural aspect with deep balconies across the living floor for indoor/outdoor entertaining in addition to stone terracing on the lower ground floor for barbecues served from the garden kitchen.
Under a Welsh slate roof the mellow handmade bricks, elegant arched windows, Broadbent ironwork and loggia style balcony of the main reception room demonstrate both the quality and attention to detail. Oak flooring, under-floor heating, elegant Chesney fireplaces and a Legrand Intelligent Home system, Siematic Kitchen, Sub Zero cabinet fridge and freezers, Wolf Range and twin dishwashers will satisfy the most discerning of buyers.
The beautifully proportioned rooms on the ground floor are matched by the lower ground floor, with a multipurpose third reception room providing a lounge area, cinema and games room, a graceful hall, a gym and changing/shower room with a sauna and access to a lower terrace prepared for a hot tub. The lower ground floor has a guest bedroom suite with a dressing room and bathroom, ideal for visitors being away from the main bedrooms or for teenagers or staff. French doors open to the rear gardens directly from these ground floor rooms.
The lower ground floor has a Siematic garden kitchen with integrated appliances adjoining a utility/laundry room. Also at this level there is a generous plant room, store and an external garden store with a gardeners w.c. and wash hand basin.
The main living floor includes the attractive arched recessed entrance with the front door opening into the impressive dining hall with marble flooring and a spectacular gallery atrium. An elegant staircase with cast spindles leads up to the first floor and down to the lower ground floors and a cloakroom leads through to a separate w.c. and wash hand basin. A generously sized study is located to the front of the house with a wide bay window.
The living dining kitchen is well appointed, features a triple aspect and French doors opening to the extensive balcony areas with an external circular staircase leading down to the gardens. The Chesney fireplace in the sitting area, large island, Silestone surfaces and top quality appliances previously described make this a superb entertaining space as well as a family area to enjoy.
The drawing room has double doors from the dining hall and is both wonderfully proportioned and a very relaxing room with French doors opening to the rear covered balcony and super views to the fields beyond the gardens. Again with an elegant Chesney fireplace and oak flooring.
The staircase leads up to the first floor with a gallery landing and lantern skylight, a linen cupboard and impressive oak doors leading off to four further bedroom suites. The master bedroom includes a fitted dressing room and access to a loft room to create a seasonal wardrobe, an en suite with an Aquavision TV in the bath area, a separate shower and twin wash hand basins. There are fitted wardrobes and en suite bathrooms to all the remaining bedrooms.
The double garage lies to the side and has twin electrically operated doors and a rear door to the balcony. The balcony is part covered for inclement weather and includes a dining area with steps leading down to the lower gardens.
The gardens are attractively landscaped and well stocked although with an eye to easy maintenance, with a gated driveway to the front and matching railings to the front boundary. The driveway/turning area is flanked by lawns and the lawned, terraced, southerly facing rear gardens lead down to a small brook with fields beyond.
Services: Mains electricity, water and gas. Private drainage.
