About this property

  • This fabulously appointed house was subject to a lavish and comprehensive refurbishment three years ago. The abiding feel is a sense of space and volume, with vaulted ceilings and large windows and doors from the principal rooms to the beautiful garden, and an understated sense of style to the finishes.

    The ground floor is largely Italian porcelain and under-floor heated. The lights are largely by Flos. The kitchen by Poggenpohl and the finishes splendid, one example being the leather embossed handles to the internal oak doors.

    The front door opens into a lobby with cloakroom, and a staircase hall beyond, to an impressive triple aspect vaulted dining hallway, an open plan core to the home, fabulous for entertaining and with French doors connecting to the garden terrace.

    The full width, dual aspect sitting room has a more intimate feel and also has French doors to the garden, along with a contemporary wood burner framed by log store recesses.

    The Poggenpohl kitchen is fabulous. Vaulted and bright, with roof lights and French doors to the garden, and programmable Flos lighting. It incorporates an extensive suite, with huge central island with breakfast bar, an inset sink with Quooker hot tap and induction hob beneath extractor, whilst there are integrated fridge, freezer, wine fridge and Gaggenau oven, microwave and coffee machine appliances.

    A spacious fitted office/games room, with an attractive garden aspect, utility and the integral double garage, with its remote controlled roller shutter door, lies beyond, whilst returning to the stairwell hall, an elegant double bedroom suite, with fitted wardrobes and en suite shower room, completes the ground floor accommodation.

    The first floor principal dual-aspect double bedroom suite is air conditioned and has built-in wardrobes and en suite shower room with rain forest shower. Bedroom five is professionally fitted as a dressing room. Double bedrooms two and three have built-in wardrobes and are served by the fabulously appointed family shower room.

    The house is positioned within a large garden plot. There is extensive gravelled parking to the front of the house and access to the garage.

    The gardens have an automatic watering system and have been designed, arranged and laid out by Julie Toll, a seven time Gold Chelsea Flower Show winning garden and landscape designer. The garden is mature and private, with lawns, box hedges, shrubs, flowering borders and seating terraces, with walled and copper beech hedge boundaries and attractive views to St Botolph's Church.

This is one of the most impressively appointed and finished houses that I have ever seen - I love the 'reveal' as you enter and the scale and volume of the interior becomes clear. If you value entertaining and 'inside to outside' connectivity with your garden, this is a house to view. It is fabulous.
