A fine example of a modern home with many traditional features.
Set behind private gates, Summer Place is a substantial family home, set in around half an acre and arranged over two floors. It includes underfloor heating to the ground floor and concrete floors to the first floor. It has been extensively remodelled in 2014/2015 including rewiring and replumbing. There is a Control 4 AV and security system and built-in speaker system, as well as air conditioning to the cinema, all bedrooms and the gym. Summer Place is also equipped with a three phase electricity supply.
The kitchen is by Smallbone and includes two dishwashers and a concealed coffee station with a Martin Moore stone floor opening into an orangery by Prime Oak with bifold doors to the garden. The bright reception rooms are double aspect and each have open fireplaces. A formal dining room, study, utility room and guest WC complete the downstairs accommodation.
Upstairs comprises the master bedroom with luxurious en suite bathroom and nearby dressing room/additional bedroom. There are four further bedrooms (three with en suite) and a family bathroom with a laundry shute leading to the utility room. All bathrooms have Hans Groghe bathroom fittings and electric underfloor heating. The cinema/games room, with separate access from downstairs, has an acoustic ceiling.
Outside, the south facing garden is mainly lawn with mature trees, shrubs and a terrace. There is also a superb garden studio/gym with shower room and an adjoining room with built-in joinery which could be used as an extra bedroom. The front driveway provides parking for numerous cars and access to the triple garage.

for me Summer Place offers the perfect balance between the creature comforts of a modern house and the character of a period one.Charles Broadbent-Combe
