As with children it isn’t fair to say if you have a favourite, but if we had to pick one house which ticked all our boxes it would be this one.
We wanted this house to feel like a family home, with the flexibility to grow and adapt as families do over time. There are stylish yet practical storage solutions, a separate large utility/ boot room which is a must have for muddy paws, wellies and kit bags. The house has a great sense of space which we worked hard with the architects to maximise.
Open plan living is signature to our style as developers as we enjoy the flexibility this offers a growing family, but also (when we are once again permitted to do so!) open plan living is a must when entertaining. We are however aware that this doesn’t always suit everyone, and to create the best of both worlds we included a fabulous sun room, with dual aspect bi-fold doors leading to a small courtyard it is the perfect place to retreat on an evening.
The agricultural feel to the build is maximised by huge windows which make the most of the natural light which soaks this house well into the evening, bifold doors help to bring the outdoors in, and the garden is the perfect summer extension to this wonderful house.
Attention to detail is apparent throughout, with the the stylish oak staircase setting the tone for this exceptional house, gorgeous limestone flooring with toasty underfloor heating and a stunning bespoke kitchen really set this house off. Our favourite detail was incorporating a built in breakfast nook which is ready made for family time, obviously this means different things to different people, but whether it be a home schooling hub, office or just a spot to have a cuppa with a magazine, this will be where it all happens!
We wanted this house to stand out from the crowd, and were thrilled when the architects suggested incorporating a second large double bedroom suite in addition to the Master. This room is perfect for teens or guests who would appreciate the privacy of their own separate ‘wing’. Although when our six year old son saw the house, this room was also his favourite - so perhaps it appeals to all!
All the little luxuries which come as standard in our developments are included here, larger than average double bedrooms, with two ensuite bathrooms as well as a lovely family bath, (all Porcelonasa - obviously) Premium appliances in the kitchen from a super induction Range cooker (which we tried and tested in our own kitchen and absolutely love) as well as Fisher Paykel American Fridge Freezers (yes two!) to make Christmas, batch cooking or entertaining that bit easier.
This house flows beautifully, with a gorgeous views over the paddock beyond, it is a stunning family home.
