About this property

  • Genesis is a striking and spacious property which has been completed to an exceptionally high standard by the present owners. The accommodation is flexible and stylish, and arranged over three floors with generous balconies and an impressive central bespoke staircase. The central entrance hall leads on one side to a magnificent drawing/ball room with a balcony, beyond which is a Moroccan inspired Palm room, and to the other side a 32' open plan kitchen/breakfast/family room with full length windows overlooking the gardens and lake.
    The lower ground floor features an impressive master bedroom suite comprising a bedroom with full length windows and balcony, dressing area and en suite bathroom. There are three further bedroom suites on this floor, all with French windows, and there is access to the atrium and balcony overlooking the indoor pool.

    The second lower ground floor, apart from two further bedroom suites, has been designed as the ultimate leisure and party area, with an 11m indoor swimming pool, gym area, games room and cinema.

    The overriding feature of the property is the benefit of flexible and adaptable accommodation which could have numerous uses and occupations, subject to the relevant planning consents. It sits in an elevated position taking full advantage of the undulating and far-reaching views.


    Sited in an elevated position, the immediate garden has been cleverly landscaped to create an attractive pathway winding through well stocked beds leading to lawn enclosed by a mix of shrubs and small trees. Adjoining the lawn is an area of ancient woodland including numerous mature beech, silver birch, walnut and cedar trees, and to the other side of the lawn is a well-stocked wildlife lake. The property is approached across Snelsmore Common over a gravelled track leading to double electric gates which open into an attractive courtyard with ample parking and children's ‘soft' play area

    Flat and Office

    Adjoining the house is a well-appointed office and flat, which comprises a fitted kitchen/sitting room, bedroom and en suite bathroom.
