An exceptional detached family house in one of Ascots premier roads SL5
Built by the present owner, Northwood is a substantial property that has been creatively designed to an exacting specification throughout, to provide a stunning contemporary home. The accommodation is exceptionally light and airy and provides superb entertaining space with the principal reception rooms opening out from the striking reception hall, and each room to the rear of the house enjoying direct access to the garden.
The cinema room boasts a vaulted ceiling and bi-folding doors to three sides, opening the room out to the rear terrace where a bespoke bbq area extends the entertaining space. The property is equipped with up-to-date technology including under-floor heating throughout, a whole house ventilation system, air conditioning to the upper floors, wiring for audio and a Saga Smart Home KNX automated system that enables remote control of lighting and curtains/blinds via virtual assistant, computer and/or mobile device.
The reception rooms feature a neutral colour palette that conveys a sense of calm and tranquillity, a theme that is evident throughout the house. A key feature of the property is the spacious kitchen/breakfast room, designed by Nicholas Anthony (Ascot) and comprehensively fitted with a bespoke range of Ovangkol units (a West African hardwood) and an island incorporating a breakfast bar. An extensive range of integrated Gaggenau appliances include twin self-cleaning ovens, a steam oven and a coffee machine with warming drawers below, a 5-ring induction hob, a dishwasher, a full-height refrigerator and separate freezer, and full-height wine cooler. The numerous include a spacious sitting room featuring a fireplace and bay window with built-in seating, a separate dining room for the more formal dining occasions, a sizeable study, and a restful library. The ground floor further comprises a utility room and two cloakrooms.
Located on the first floor is a master suite comprising a bedroom with a contemporary inset fireplace and double doors opening out to a glass Juliet balcony overlooking the rear garden, a dressing room that has been extensively fitted with oak furniture, and a luxurious en suite bathroom with a double-width walk-in shower. There are four further bedrooms on this floor, all of which are en suite, along with a linen room, complete with a discreetly placed laundry chute. A secondary staircase leads down to the utility room and cloakroom, where access may be gained to the garage.
The second floor is arranged to provide a good sized gym (which could be utilised as a sixth bedroom) and is beautifully fitted with a changing area, a sauna, shower room and a cloakroom. There is also ample eaves storage space.
Northwood is approached via double electrically operated wrought-iron gates opening onto a block-paved driveway leading to the double garage and parking area. At the rear of the house, the lawned garden is enclosed by a mix of high-level hedging and wood panel fencing, and enjoys a high degree of seclusion. The decked terracing includes an area with a hot tub in situ, a separate area that is ideal for al fresco dining and a further area outside the cinema room, featuring a built-in barbeque.
Northwood is situated in a highly desirable and peaceful private road close to South Ascot and Sunninghill village.
