A most impressive country house with a particularly high standard of appointment throughout and excellent leisure facilities.
Hyde Meadows is approached through security gates with a tree
lined driveway leading up to a gravelled parking area. The two
paddocks are to either side.
The house itself is a most striking home with a state-of-the-art
finish. Indeed as well as a high standard of appointment throughout there is also a heat recovery system, a central vacuum system, sound system and zoned lighting. In addition there is a wonderful subterranean games room/cinema fitted with the latest home entertainment equipment. In short a wonderful family home which has been created with a great deal of flair and imagination.
Rooms of particular note are the kitchen/breakfast room which
forms the hub of the house. As well as the four oven Aga there is also an extensive range of Siemens appliances. Bi-folding doors make the room bright and welcoming on a sunny day and al fresco dining can be enjoyed on the patio. Adjacent is the drawing room with its triple aspect and bi-fold doors leading onto the rear patio. The contemporary wood burning stove by Barpas' makes a real focal point to one side of the room whilst on the other side there is a feature aquarium wall which can be admired from either the drawing room or dining room. The study has a range of bespoke American black walnut cabinets and purpose built double desk with views to the front.
Stairs lead down to the aforementioned cinema and games room.
It makes the perfect place to host a party as it is fitted with the very latest in home entertainment. Bespoke walnut cabinetry houses the integrated surround sound system as well as the electrics for the Sonos and DVD player. Just sit back as the large drop down screen prepares to entertain you with your favourite film through a DILA projector. To one side of the room is a fully fitted bar with a marble work top, fridge and optics.
On the first floor there are five bedrooms approached off a fine
galleried landing. The master bedroom is a luxurious sanctuary with its porcelain tiled floor, separate dressing room flanked by floor to ceiling wardrobes, en suite bathroom with freestanding bath, walk in shower, his and hers' Villeroy and Boch sinks with vanity units, WC and bidet. The room is finished with beautiful mosaic wall tiles and a porcelain tiled floor. From the bedroom doors lead out onto a decked balcony which is the perfect spot to enjoy the sun in complete privacy.
The guest suite is a spacious double aspect room with a luxury
en suite bathroom with limestone flooring and a white suite
comprising stand alone bath, corner shower, his and hers' sinks,
WC and heated towel rail. In addition there are three further double bedrooms, a shower room and yet to be finished family bathroom.
The leisure complex links to the main house via the home gym. The structure of the building is complete with bi-folding doors which open out onto the patio and rear garden. The swimming pool itself has still to be fully finished thus allowing the new owners the opportunity to complete to their own style. The pool is 12m x 6m (approx.) with the electrics in place for integrated pool lighting. Rooms have been built to be used as changing areas and a steam room, plus there is space for a hot tub to be installed adjacent to the pool.
Grounds and Gardens
The property is approached via a set of wrought iron electric gates flanked either side by stone pillars. The tree lined gravel drive leads to the front of the property with a generous parking area and triple detached garage with self contained flat above. The garage has three electrically operated up and over doors whilst still offering plenty of room to store garden equipment. The boiler for the flat is also located in the garage. The flat is accessed by an exterior staircase and makes for perfect guest/staff accommodation.
The house stands centrally within its grounds. The front garden is externally lit to make a real feature of the trees as day turns to dusk. There is a railed paddock, ideal for grazing a pony or alternatively it would make a enjoyable play area.
The gardens continue on through a five bar gate leading to the adjacent paddock and the rear gardens. The rear of the property has a spacious patio area which links the house to the leisure complex. The landscaped gardens enjoy a selection of mature trees including a magnificent beech tree and established borders.
The stable block sits on a concrete base and has four loose boxes with independent lighting and water. The adjacent two acre (approx.) paddock has a field shelter and is enclosed by post and rail fencing.
In total the property extends to about 3.5 acres.
