This is one of our Country Houses
This visually striking architecturally designed home, created by Spratley Studios, offers carefully considered family accommodation that embraces its immediate environment. The design of this house drew upon the current owners’ experiences of living in Australia where light and inclusive open spaces were a key requirement. Upon entering the property via the large front door into the entrance lobby, you are immediately stimulated by the effortless flow of this cleverly designed home.
To the right a vaulted ceiling central corridor leads the way to the bedrooms and the principal reception areas are to the left of the corridor. Crossing over a glass floor beneath which the indoor pool is located, you enter the impressive open-plan reception room with double aspect glazed glass walls drawing in superb light and harnessing views as well as access to the gardens. A galleried study or family room with a glazed balustrade floats above the kitchen area and bifold doors open onto a high sided terrace whee views over the garden and countryside beyond can be enjoyed. The kitchen holds a commanding and connected position within this magnificent open-plan area and features a large island unit with a wooden peninsular, providing the ideal casual dining area. Integrated Miele appliances include a five-ring gas hob and wine fridge which are inset to the island. Further Miele appliances include a dishwasher, oven with warming draw and there is a Wolf Oven. Additional storage is located along the back wall beneath a large picture window, framing views over the front garden. There is a utility area just off the kitchen area which has a door to the side garden and stairs lead down to the home spa. This is a fabulous part of the house and in addition to its obvious health benefits offers a great party space. Within the spa are a hot tub and sauna and beneath the glazed ceiling is the pool and there are also shower facilities. The final reception room is the cinema room, located across from the entrance hall. It is wired for surround sound. Along the naturally-lit vaulted hall are the bedrooms and a cloakroom. The master bedroom features an en suite bathroom and a dressing room offering good storage. The master bedroom and bathroom afford magnificent views across the garden and countryside
