This newly constructed contemporary house sits on the site of the former stables and occupies an incredible position surrounded by green belt land, overlooking and owning 60m of private river frontage onto the River Avon.
The original architectural brief was to create a large yet usable family home making the most of the incredible views over the River Avon. This has led to the construction of this striking modern home with an abundance of glazing in all principal rooms and an exceptionally large terrace and patio from which to enjoy the views and scenery. Constructed using modern building techniques and dressed in local stone with brushed aluminium grey windows, the property sits well within its environment and has been finished to an exceptionally high standard throughout.
The main reception floor occupies the entire breadth of this 5,731 sq ft home with the south-east facing element encased in glass, affording wonderful views from all three zones. The kitchen/ breakfast room takes centre stage with an exceptionally well fitted bespoke kitchen by 'Hacker', with a unique Avalance marble worktop and integrated appliances by Neff and Miele. The design incorporates breakfast bar facilities and clever mood lighting. It is also the perfect entertaining space with its bank of bi-folding doors opening completely to allow access to the generous terrace. The adjacent open-plan dining room is a wonderful place for both entertaining and family life. Features include vaulted ceilings with open trusses and further side windows.
The last of the zones is the main sitting room which again has open vaulted, trussed ceilings, cleverly positioned picture windows, a further bank of bi-folding doors leading to the terrace and a wood burner which provides both warmth and a focal point. The engineered oak flooring runs through the dining room and sitting room with slate tiling in the kitchen separating the three areas. This principal floor also has a fifth bedroom/study as well as cloakroom facilities.
The bedroom level has four/five bedrooms with either walk-in dressing rooms or wardrobes and six bathrooms. All but one have access to the garden terrace. There is also a 32 ft. media room which could be a cinema room, studio or further bedrooms. This floor also includes a number of useful rooms such as cloakroom, laundry room and the leisure suite contains a gym (or a further bedroom), traditional sauna and shower.
There is a private lane accessed via bespoke wooden electric gates owned by just Lambridge Stables and a neighbour which lead down to your own further set of privately-operated gates and in turn a large driveway and parking area. The garage complex consists of a double garage with roller shutter doors, car port and workshop. The house is then entered via a walkway onto the main living floor. There is also access from here onto the substantial rear terrace which is wrapped in a glass and stainless steel balustrade. The remainder of the grounds have been seeded with low maintenance gardening in mind. The more recent installation of a laurel hedge creates a barrier between this and the neighbouring property. There are a number of mature trees dotted throughout the property and terraced gardens with a number of seating areas. The recent addition of a jetty which overhangs the river at certain tidal flows is a wonderfully private area from which to enjoy the meandering River Avon. Grounds of about 0.91 acre.
