House in England, United Kingdom
This is a highly sophisticated and individual dwelling offering the very best of contemporary living. It occupies a private plot in arguably the most exclusive enclave of Nairn Road; one of the most sought-after locations in Canford Cliffs. It was built to an exceptional design by an award-winning architect and was International Design & Awards winner 2015.
The house is approached via bespoke double doors and the reception hall features a double height galleried landing as well as a feature staircase with cantilevered treads and a structural glass balustrade.
The accommodation is imaginatively laid out with large areas of glass maximising views of the private sun terrace and grounds. The principal living space is given over to informal living, informal dining and a highly luxurious fitted kitchen with stone tops and a comprehensive range of integrated appliances by top manufacturers such as Miele, the whole of which opens onto the rear sun terrace via sliding patio doors with a level threshold.
Two sets of double doors connect to a formal sitting area which is also zoned for additional dining space with a feature ceiling above. A contemporary flame effect fire forms an additional focal point with a large format television recessed above.
Additional living space includes a state-of-the-art cinema with a concealed projector as well as a games room. Both these rooms could be suitable for a variety of uses, such as office, study or even children’s rooms.
The first floor comprises four double bedrooms, each with en-suite facilities. The landing benefits from a skylight, built in cupboards as well as views of the grounds at the front and the rear of the property. The galleried area overlooks the kitchen/family room below and is just one of many design details which are evident throughout.
The master suite boasts a walk-in closet, air conditioning and a luxurious en-suite bathroom plus a large private sun balcony. The principal guest room also has a walk-in closet, an en-suite with a wet room and sunken bath as well as a private balcony with resin decking and a structural glass balustrade.
The home is, in our opinion, beautifully presented with pristine finishes chosen from a palette of neutral and earth tones. The specification includes creature comforts such as intelligent lighting, an integrated audio system, under floor gas fired central heating and mechanical ventilation with heat recovery.
The outside has been landscaped to an imaginative design with the front garden enclosed by a remote-controlled gate and stylish hardwood fencing, leading to a resin-bonded drive and a generous double garage. The rear garden includes a large paved sun terrace, an easily maintained lawn with areas of planted shrubs and mature trees beyond.
The location is perfect for anybody making a lifestyle move to the area. The property is close to Canford Cliffs village and nearby chines, yet it remains tranquil compared with other popular roads just a short distance away. The plot has a wide and impressive frontage to the road, resulting from a rare one-for-one replacement as opposed to the more usual sub-divided plots.
