Description

Lantern House is situated in one of Kingswood's most exclusive, private roads. The property was completed approximately twenty years ago and designed by the current owners to their own exacting requirements and specifications.

Description

The property immediately wows with a spectacular vaulted marble entrance hall with a central sweeping staircase rising to the first floor and a specially commissioned Roger Pearson fireplace.
On the ground floor the oversized doors, 3.20m ceiling heights, ornate covings with gold stencilling and decorative carvings above the doors impress whilst there are modern touches and additions too. Under floor heating & concrete floors are in situ whilst a recent refurbishment saw the installation of smart technology, allowing the blinds, the lighting, the audio system and even the alarm to be controlled remotely.
Leading from the light and elegant reception hall are the principle reception rooms, including a double aspect drawing room which also has an open Roger Pearson fireplace and two double casement doors onto the terrace. The dining room has double doors through to the loggia whilst the well-proportioned study with sash windows to the front has been fitted with handmade furniture including shelves, cupboards and glass cabinets. The recently installed and open plan kitchen/family room is now the hub of the home. Where once a Clive Christian kitchen stood, a magnificent & contemporary kitchen/breakfast/family room has now been installed. The open plan design incorporates the kitchen as well as dining and living space with bi-folding doors out to the garden and a separate utility room to the rear. Additionally there is also a family room from the entrance hall which in turn leads into the music room or library.

On the first floor there are three generous bedrooms, each with their own dressing areas and en-suite bathroom/shower room. The master bedroom is a particular feature, overlooking the wonderful rear gardens with a private balcony as well as the sumptuous dressing room of stellar proportions. On the second floor there are three further bedrooms, a large marble bathroom, an en suite bathroom and a separate WC.

Lantern House is approached by electric wrought iron gates to a large driveway providing ample parking leading to a double garage with two double electric doors and a one bedroom self-contained apartment above. The beautifully landscaped gardens and grounds feature a large, paved entertaining terrace with built in down lighters, ideal for Al Fresco dining. Lantern House also benefits from a large outdoor heated swimming pool and a stunning two bedroom summer villa with luxury, open plan lounge/kitchen/dining room. In all, the grounds measure close to one acre and a viewing is essential to appreciate the charm and splendour of this property.
