The design brief for local award-winning Chartered Architects, Della Valle, was to create a country house by extending and upgrading the original Edwardian Dower House, retaining a traditional style, using local materials such as Blue Lias, Doulting Ashlar and Welsh Slate for the external finishes. Internally, the brief was to design flexible open-plan living spaces with lots of natural light, while also creating a low maintenance, low energy home, embracing high-tech systems, using high quality materials & finishes. The house offers superb entertaining, leisure and living spaces, with the outdoor terraces having uninterrupted views of Cranmore Chase and the surrounding farmland.
The accommodation is beautifully presented and the proportions are superb. Upon entering there is a spacious entrance lobby, that in turn leads into the stunning kitchen, dining and informal living area. There is an L-shaped lounge that opens into a spectacular kitchen/dining room. It has a fully glazed rear elevation, vaulted ceiling, exceptional proportions and ceramic floor that combine to give a tremendous feeling of space and light. A bespoke kitchen with striking contemporary units sits at the heart of the room. Towards the front of the house is a comfortable sitting area and to the rear is a superb dining space with bi-folding doors on two elevations that lead into the rear garden.
A separate gym also overlooks the rear garden with bi-folding doors providing access to the garden. This room could easily provide a further sitting room. Also of particular note is the stunning dual aspect drawing room that has large bi-fold doors on both elevations leading into the garden. There is a striking contemporary fireplace with wood-burning stove that sits at the focal point of this magnificent entertaining space. Also on the ground floor is a cinema room, lobby, spacious utility room and plant room.
