Better Than Beverly?

27/06/2013

Oxshott, where Octagon have been building their wonderful family homes for more than three decades, has recently been quipped ‘the Surrey Beverly Hills’. Flattering as this may sound, local pundits believe the quality of their properties and lifestyle are distinctly superior to the Disneyesque follies and drive only society of their Californian cousins.

Oxshott’s thriving village, propelled by a strong local community, is surrounded by some of Surrey’s prettiest countryside but still within walking distance of the area’s sought after residential roads.

Probably top of the Oxshott wish list of home addresses is the Crown Estate, the location for Octagon’s latest 6 bedroom house, an elegant detached property set in a lavishly landscaped three quarter acre plot.

Ground floor living accommodation exceeds most families’ wildest expectations, from the moment of stepping over the threshold into an extravagant sweep of marble tiled entrance hall, with curved glass paneled main staircase, and doors either side leading to generously proportioned home study and family media rooms. Then there are the wide expanses of the kitchen, breakfast and family room complex with giant foldback glass doors overlooking the west-facing garden. When the adult members of the family yearn for some rather more elegant and quiet seclusion for relaxing and entertaining, they can retire to the formal dining and drawing rooms.

Octagon specification is at its usual grand luxe level, notably in the kitchen, with its chic high gloss Terra Oak interspersed with the Oxshott essentials; Miele twin glass fronted wine chillers, full height fridge and freezer, two ovens as well as a microwave/combination oven, Gaggenau ceramic high speed hob, and the chef’s rite of passage, a walk in larder.

A connecting door from the kitchen takes the lucky Oxshott resident into their fully-equipped with washer and dryer utility room, also easily accessed directly from the first floor by a second flight of service stairs.

Upstairs, there are six double bedrooms and six bathrooms, the master suite deservedly bagging two of them, both clad in sleek marble and perfect companions for the master suite’s two walk in dressing rooms.

All the bedrooms have bespoke fitted wardrobes, and three further bedrooms have comfortable en suite facilities.

An integral triple garage has secure internal access via the utility wing, with electronically controlled garage doors making frosty arrivals and departures a pleasurable task. Outside is a deep forecourt for multiple guest parking, and to the rear of the house, a full width terrace overlooking the sensational gardens.

Priced at £5.5m, Lanercost can be viewed via appointed agents Gascoigne-Pees on 01932 866 931 or Sotheby’s International Realty on 01932 798 038.
