The open plan design is perfect for family life. There is plenty of space in which to relax together whilst still providing quiet study spaces ideal for working from home. Built in sympathy with its environment, 'Oak House' is fabulous in every season. Cool in the summer and wonderfully warm in the winter from the underfloor heating on every floor, log burners in the main reception rooms and a Dunsley of Holmfirth oil fired range in the kitchen. The garden is visited by deer, squirrels and wild birds throughout the year and there is easy access to Beaumont Park via a nature trail.
The main receptions rooms all have patio doors opening out onto the wraparound balcony affording fabulous views onto the woodland and across the valley to Castle Hill. The family dining kitchen leads directly to a spacious family room with balcony and picture window above, which in turn leads straight onto a suntrap patio area. Further patios for the morning and evening lie to the east and front of the house. The capacious master bedroom suite is a relaxing retreat with its own level, full bathroom, dressing room and sitting area with large windows to enjoy the views. Designed for modern family life, 'Oak House' has a large true double garage and a roomy driveway capable of fitting four cars.
The imaginative design and layout support the independence and privacy needs of a growing family. The use of accommodation can easily adapt to provide office space and individual living which is explicit in both the size and solidity of the build of "Oak House". There is an integrated commercial grade mesh Wi-Fi system combined with Cat 5 cabling and TV points to every room. Security is a monitored alarm system, which combined with a sprinkler and fire alarm system makes for a safe and secure environment.
Having quick and easy access to international communication links and town centre facilities, this unique home and its surrounding 1/3 acre of garden and woodland still feels like a peaceful part of the countryside.
