An uncompromising expression of individuality, where breathtaking architecture unites with exceptional interior design, culminating in a unique family home that blurs the boundaries between the natural world and the man-made. 'Oaklands' promises a lifestyle like no other.
A driveway leads up to the detached double garage and large parking area , where you'll probably want to take a few minutes to appreciate the serenity of the open skies and views that stretch off into the distance, across gardens, treetops and open fields to the distant hills beyond. View duly noted and appreciated, spirits lifted, let's open the front door and enter, the oak floored, L-shaped hallway with its high vaulted ceiling- a dramatic and impressive entrance statement, if ever there was one. Double doors open to one of the key areas of the home-the open-plan kitchen/family area - the kitchen measures over 26ft, the family area 22ft - taken together, it's a truly vast, calm and relaxing space, partly due to the glass bi-folding doors that enclose the entire family room, which acts as a giant picture frame for the captivating views. A media room provides another intimate room perfect for relaxing, enjoying a film with the family or watching sporting events, while any one of the five large bedrooms could be easily be given over to another living/dining/reception space if required.
You don't need need to sacrifice a bedroom for workspace, though; in the inner hallway, the owners have incorporated a neatly designed walk-through office area, leading to two of the double bedrooms, one with an en-suite wet room. There are three more bedrooms at the other end of the home, two with en-suites. The spacious master bedroom suite showcases a beautifully designed wet room, and doors that open to a raised terrace providing the ideal space for morning coffees & evening cocktails. A large walk-in dressing room, fitted with his-and-hers hanging rails and shelving, a shoe storage unit and further space for suitcases and such items. Further more a luxurious, hotel-style family bathroom is just as alluring, with its elegant Italian-style freestanding bath, walk-in shower and twins basins.
Terrific creativity and expense has gone into maximising the plot and remodelling the generous grounds surrounding the property. A sun terrace can be reached directly from both bedrooms and the family area, or via a decked walkway that wraps around the rear of the property. Approached up a small flight of steps is a large lawn with raised seating area, artfully placed to maximise the views. The tiered gardens to the front have been profesionally landscaped and planted with a wide array of maturing treesand shrubs designed to offer colour, shape and form for all seasons; as a final bonus there's an artifical putting green set below the terraces.
