Description

This property has all the hallmarks of a small country estate but one that is steeped in the modern world rather than in history. The impressive house was only completed about 10 years ago and nestles in about three acres of gardens surrounded by some 12 acres of beautiful grounds that include a lake, a reservoir, a hard tennis and basket ball court as well as a stunning indoor swimming pool on the lower ground floor that opens up to a vast terrace with an amazing waterfall. It also offers outstanding accommodation as well as the latest in technical know how and it is this aspect that really sets it apart from other upmarket properties. It includes two windmills providing electricity, a bore hold and an irrigation system that services all the gardens and grounds. From the moment you enter through the wrought iron gates to the in and out driveway you will be awestruck. Walking under the Palladian style porch to the double sized front door you will be impatient to see what lies beyond and you won't be disappointed. The central hall and vast atrium with its cathedral style double height windows and dining and seating areas provide an impressive introduction to this fascinating place with plenty of light streaming in from the wall of sliding glass doors that open on the upper terrace. There is an elegant drawing room and large dining room for more formal occasions as well as a beautifully fitted study and a stunning bespoke kitchen/breakfast room designed by Thoroughly Wood. This includes a large island/breakfast bar, a Wolfe range cooker, a two drawer dishwasher, coffee machine, combi microwave and a warming drawer and still leaves plenty of room for a large table and chairs. The lower ground floor is the piece de resistance with a simply stunning indoor swimming pool with a built in Jacuzzi and a wall of sliding doors to the vast lower terrace that, when open, bring the outdoors inside. Around the pool there is a steam room, plunge pool and infra red and classic sauna as well as a shower room, changing rooms, a large playroom that would make an excellent cinema and a utility room with two washing machines and two tumble dryers.

What the Owner says:
"There was originally an older farmhouse on the site but we were advised by the town planners that it would be more appropriate to demolish the old house and build a new one. So we started the ‘labour of love' building this amazing property at the end of the last century and finished it some 10 years later. We both come from Africa and have always enjoyed homes with plenty of light so that was a very important aspect when initially designing our new residence. In order to create the fabulous lower ground outdoor terrace so we could wander out from the swimming pool to a large open space, we had to dig out the whole area and all the soil has gone into the landscaping of the surrounding gardens. While the earth from digging out the lake and the reservoir has been used to landscape the 12 acres of grounds. Over the years we had three gardeners designers providing wonderful creations for different parts of the garden and grounds and we are extremely proud of the delightful results. When building the property we have tried to incorporate everything of the highest quality and to provide a beautiful and relaxing home for ourselves, our family and our friends. We love our home but are now about to embark on a new chapter in our lives and we look forward to new owners being able to take advantage of everything we have done to create the ultimate in a modern country estate".
