This stone property has been designed in an attempt to re-create the splendour of a Georgian vicarage layout. There are hand-tooled stone quoins, jams and lintels and bespoke stone fireplaces that have been hand-cut by master masons. The impressive stone chimneys. The tailor-made, solid-oak staircases and statement newel posts. Scrupulous attention to detail is everywhere - and is undeniably what makes this magnificent dwelling so exceptional.
The interior colour scheme has been chosen for each individual room. Feature walls are finished in Farrow and Ball heritage paints and complement the hues that have been mixed especially to match the accompanying tiles. The interior has underfloor heating on ground and first floors and where the floors are not tiled they are finished with engineered oak.
Entrance is through a traditional stone porch and into a fine reception hall. Here the sense of space sets the stage for whats to follow. High ceilings, deep curved skirting boards, extra-large window openings and oak doors combine to create a terrific sense of arrival. Generous and bespoke timber sash windows allow light to flood in with each window precisely positioned to maximise enjoyment of the setting and for appreciation of the intricacies of the stonework and masonry on the building itself.
In the hall, polished engineered oak flooring complements the custom-fitted solid-oak staircase with its matching solid-oak treads, double bull nose, risers and statement newel posts, while a striking Venetian window gives light to both the hall and the landing. Graceful curved walls allow the space to flow freely.
The large sitting room with its triple-aspect views has a hand-carved stone fire surround - befitting of the Georgian style. It has been created on-site to complete the room.
The dining room has dual-aspect views and french doors leading out to the garden. It too has a carved stone fire surround in the style of the period.
The impressive breakfasting kitchen provides a sociable hub and is undeniably the heart of the home.
At this point there is a choice of units for early exchange allowing the new owners to have significant input into creating their own bespoke kitchen. As with all Stone Homes properties, there will be a full range of handmade units designed especially for the space and integral appliances including a natural gas stove. The area will also have a tiled floor and a large pantry.
Adjoining the kitchen is a bright and spacious garden room with a full run of timber sash windows to two sides and French doors leading outside to an Indian stone sun terrace. This is a glorious room.
A practical utility room housing the boiler is located conveniently close to the kitchen and will be fitted with units to complement the main kitchen. There is also a cloakroom off the entrance hall with Villeroy Boch sanitary ware, Hans Grohe taps and with cream corduroy half-tiled walls.
A grand solid oak staircase leads up to the (underfloor heated) first floor and the five double bedrooms. The wonderfully spacious master bedroom has dual-aspect views and a boutique-hotel-style en suite with a luxurious Villeroy Boch freestanding bath and Hans Grohe stand-alone tap. LED feature lighting, natural stone full-height tiles and metallic-look mosaic tiles complete the look. The option exists to knock through from the main bedroom into the fourth bedroom to create a dressing room.
The second bedroom has a curved walk-in closet as well as an en suite shower room with a chrome Conran towel warmer and half-height tiled walls. The bedroom window looks out on to a balcony which has been purpose-built to take an outdoor Christmas tree during the festive season. Theres an external electrical socket for the lights.
The third bedroom has a large en suite with a generous walk-in wet area, recessed mirror and full-height Ted Baker tiles, while the two remaining bedrooms share an en suite shower room via Jack-&-Jill doors. All en suites are fitted with Villeroy Boch sanitary ware, Hans Grohe fixtures and are finished with individually selected tiles.
