Words or pictures cannot do any justice to what is on offer here.
Both properties underwent a major conversion in the true Grand Design manner in 2006 in a very stylish contemporary vernacular with sympathy for the wealth of exposed roof beams and ground floor oak beams. The magic begins as you pass the tranquility of the village green and duckpond in the lane approaching the long private driveway, through the gates to sweep in to extensive parking for in excess of 16 vehicles.
The main house features underfloor heating state of the art surround sound and large screen entertainment and distribution throughout the property and a huge fully equipped dining kitchen featuring vast quartz work and dining surfaces (design orientated for cooking and entertaining).
The design brief was to be able to take in the magnificent views wherever possible so inside there are lots of double glass doors and a large double sided inglenook beamed fireplace with log burner between the kitchen and drawing room. The sitting room has two oversized French doors (each window being 4.0m x 2.3m) onto the patio.
Apart from the obvious and uncompromising style, the quality of the workmanship, materials and equipment will immediately be obvious.
