Country House Perfection

27/06/2013

We all love the idea of a country house retreat, but too many are old, draughty and lacking modern day home comforts. However Octagon, successful creator of family homes with all the right luxury touches, have now perfected the ultimate in country house living with their latest offering in exclusive Moor Park, close to the lovely old market town of Farnham in Surrey.

Located on a generous plot of over an acre in the super league road Compton Way, the Octagon 5 bedroom, 4 bathroom home has plenty of entertaining space. Family, friends and overnight guests can all be comfortably accommodated, boutique hotel style, and enjoy views of the surrounding lavishly landscaped gardens.

Grand proportions, spectacular main staircase, fine cabinetry, polished porcelain and marble floors give this brand new home a real classic ambience, whilst cleverly concealing the advanced technology and engineering which makes the home temperate, draught free, beautifully lit and a joy to live in.

A double height octagonal entrance hall with polished porcelain tiled floor elegantly partners the walnut and glass panelled staircase leading to the first floor galleried landing, where another impressive atrium space is bathed in natural light through an octagonal roof light.

Ground floor living space totals three reception rooms, ideally allocated as study, TV den and gracious drawing room with classical gas fired fireplace, where retracting sliding walnut doors access the formal dining area of the ‘amphitheatre’ sized living space incorporating kitchen, breakfast room, garden room, and extensive family sitting area.

Sleek taupe lacquered kitchen units have contrasting stone worktops, and an extensive range of built in Miele appliances, including built in espresso/cappuccino maker and no less than three ovens, one a Gwyneth Paltrow favourite, being exclusively for steaming. A substantially sized utility room with gardener’s loo and glamorous marble guest WC cloakroom complete the ground floor accommodation.

Super wide foldback doors from the garden room tempt a step onto the paved rear terrace, and beautifully stocked gardens beyond.

Upstairs, all bedrooms are comfortable doubles, three with en suite bathrooms, the Master excelling itself with a full marble-clad bathroom, walk in dressing room, a private sitting room and glass panelled balcony.

In the forecourt sits a triple garage, and the property is securely gated with internal video link.

Lanercost is priced at £3m and is available to view through Strutt and Parker on 01252 821102.
