Northfield Villa is a stunning detached contemporary house situated in the heart of Lansdown. Discreetly positioned behind electric gates, it is a hidden gem � an architectural surprise.
Combining traditional material and contemporary design an exceptional and substantial residence has been created that complements the surroundings. Beautiful natural stone both inside and out sits in perfect harmony with state of the art, high quality modern fixtures and furnishings. Constructed of stone elevations under a slate tiled roof the property has been cleverly designed to blend into the surroundings yet offering extensive accommodation arranged over 3 floors approaching 3,352 sq ft including the garage.
The property is approached via electric wooden gates that open onto a wide driveway that sweeps down to the double garage. Upon entering the luxurious quality of the build is immediately apparent. A bedroom has an en suite shower room along with a balcony overlooking the garden (currently used a sitting room). Steps lead down to the ground floor which provides the majority of the accommodation. Of particular note are the sitting room and kitchen/dining room, each having bi-fold doors onto the central garden. The sitting room has wooden floors and a wood burning stove. The kitchen/dining room is beautifully appointed, fitted with hand built units and finished with marble work surfaces and a limestone tiled floor. There is a well-appointed utility room and guest bedroom with adjacent bathroom, 2 further bedrooms and a bathroom.
The lower ground floor level provides a luxurious principal suite. All the bath and shower rooms are individually designed and of exceptional quality, displaying a range of styles and finishes. Natural light levels in two of the bedrooms are enhanced by the use of a pyramid skylight and a reinforced glass walkway/ceiling.
Cleverly landscaped gardens have been created to combine level lawned and terraced areas including a sheltered central garden that is surrounded by the living accommodation. There is a beautiful wrought iron and glazed veranda that spans the width of the garden level, greatly enhancing the outdoor space and the aesthetics of the property. There is direct access to the garden from the double garage and ample additional parking on the sweeping driveway.
