Ruby House was built to exacting standards in the Arts and Crafts style by Zafiro Homes in 2015. A cobbled forecourt leads from the road to substantial wooden gates behind which lie the driveway and approach to the covered porch. This opens onto the double-height reception hallway which has stunning wooden flooring and provides access to all the principal reception rooms.
The heart of the house is undoubtedly the magnificent vaulted family room which adjoins the kitchen, creating an excellent space for entertaining; particularly beneficial in the summer
when the bi-fold doors in both rooms can be thrown open to the south-facing gardens at the rear. The Nightfly kitchen by Lida Cucina has ebony gloss wooden doors, natural granite worktops, resin flooring and fully integrated Miele
appliances. Double doors open from the reception hall to the drawing room which has an attractive fireplace and mantel, together with French doors to the garden. The adjacent sitting room offers a more relaxed ambience and serves as a television room. Another unusual feature of this property is the beautifully designed octagonal dining room with three pairs of French doors to the rear of the house. Additionally, there is a well-conceived utility room and two cloakrooms on the ground floor, one of which is conveniently accessed from the garden.
Rising to the first floor via the half-turn staircase, the galleried landing leads to the master bedroom suite comprising a large en suite bathroom and substantial dressing room. The bathroom was created by Concept Design and features a Grohe rain shower and Villeroy and Bosch porcelain tiles. From the bedroom, a Juliet balcony overlooks the gardens; the perfect spot for early morning coffee. There are three further bedrooms on this floor, all of which have either an en suite shower or bathroom; again with Villeroy and Bosch tiles and fixtures. The second floor accommodates the fifth bedroom and en suite bathroom as well as a spacious entertainment and games room which has access to an additional bathroom and a storage area.
A staircase rises from the service area of the house up to the annexe above the garage. This comprises a large bedroom and sitting room area with an en suite bathroom; ideal for teenagers,
guests or an au pair. Access can also be gained to the first floor annexe from the garage.
The property is ideally situated to take advantage of all that Beaconsfield and the Old Town have to offer. There is a wealth of restaurants and cafés close to hand as well as a range of shops including Waitrose and Marks and Spencer. Sporting interests are catered for by David Lloyd in Wooburn Green with a gym, tennis courts and a swimming pool. Additional sports facilities are offered by Stoke Park and golf courses at Beaconsfield, Wycombe Heights and Hazlemere. There are a number of highly-regarded private and state schools in the area, including Davenies for boys, High March for girls, Beaconsfield High School and Dr Challoner’s High School for girls.
Landscaped Gardens and Grounds
Ruby House sits on a plot of almost half an acre and is set back from the road. The gardens are largely laid to lawn and have been professionally landscaped throughout. The secluded rear garden benefits from a large terraced area which lends itself to al fresco dining and entertaining. It is accessed from numerous French or bi-fold doors at the rear of the property.
