An immaculately presented contemporary family house with annexe

Elm Lodge is a beautifully conceived modern family home finished to exacting standards. Designed by renowned local architects Guy Holloway Design, the house has a striking contemporary feel anchored by traditional styling, befitting of the property’s setting on the edge of a popular rural village. The current owners have created a stunning environment in which to live and enjoy. The superb finish and quality of fittings is evident throughout with consistent attention to detail.

The front door opens to a magnificent vaulted entrance hall looked over by a striking galleried landing with a curved glass balustrade. This generous space, with immaculate porcelain flooring, fitted cupboards and doors in black ash with chrome detail, set the luxurious theme found throughout the house.

Doors either side of the stairs lead to the main living space, which stretches across the back of the house and is finished with the same light marble effect porcelain flooring. The sleek, well equipped kitchen to one end provides a sociable hub with grey units and white Corian work surfaces styled with mirrored splash backs. A curved wall, adds detail and texture to the dining area to the centre. A sitting area is arranged around smart units, providing storage and a focal point. Bi-fold doors across the back of the room allow plenty of light and transition to the garden and expansive terrace, all creating the most fabulous entertaining and living area.

To the front of the house is a home office with parquet flooring and fitted storage, Across the hall is a superb, professionally designed cinema room with a well-equipped bar area. A utility room and a wet room complete the ground floor.

Set off the bright landing with lovely open view to the front through a tall picture window, is the well-appointed bedroom accommodation. The principal bedroom enjoys superb views over the countryside to the rear. The vaulted ceilings and glazing to the apex make for a wonderfully bright room with a Juliet balcony. A walk-in wardrobe provides good storage and the en suite shower room is a luxurious sanctuary with a large walk in shower.

Three further double bedrooms provide a tranquil environment, with the second also having a vaulted ceiling and the third an adjoining study/dressing room or further bedroom, depending on requirements. The family bathroom is finished to the same pristine standard, with stylish copper effect tiling and a freestanding bath.

ELM RETREAT Set in the garden a discreet distance from the house, Elm Retreat is an exquisitely composed annexe housed in a wonderful oak-framed structure.

The space comprises a living area with glazing on two aspects, each with French doors, and a kitchen with a breakfast bar neatly fitted to one corner. There is a bedroom with fitted wardrobes and a beautifully appointed shower room.

The property is approached via wrought-iron gates onto a resin driveway which provides parking for several vehicles in addition to the car port.

The garden is beautifully landscaped to complement the house and surroundings. Pathways give structure to the layout and mature plantings create an established setting. A sandstone terrae to the back of the house provides a superb entertaining space adjoining the main living area.
