First, Choose Your Estate

Discerning buyers of country house homes already know the attractions of the exclusive Crown Estate in star spotting Oxshott, and leafy Moor Park, close to the charming market town of Farnham, so will be delighted to know that these are the locations for two of Octagon’s latest 6 bedroom detached homes.

Waldene on the Crown Estate, which can be viewed through appointed agents Knight Frank on 01932 591600 or Sotheby’s on 01932 798038, is priced at £ 5.5m. Set in a lavishly landscaped three quarter acre plot on a private estate favoured by many a sporting superstar, has ground floor living accommodation which exceeds most families’ wildest expectations. Stepping over the threshold, there is an extravagant sweep of marble tiled entrance hall, with curved glass paneled main staircase, and doors either side leading to a generously proportioned home study and a family media room. Then there are the wide expanses of the kitchen, breakfast and family room complex with giant folding glass doors overlooking the West facing garden, not forgetting the elegant dining and drawing rooms for more formal entertaining.

Upstairs, there are six double bedrooms and six bathrooms, the Master Suite having two of them, both clad in sleek marble, and perfect companions for the Master Suite’s two walk in dressing rooms. Two of the bedrooms and a bathroom are accessed from the ground floor via their own separate staircase, making an ideal staff or Granny wing.

Meanwhile Lanercost, on firm favourite private road Compton Way in Moor Park, priced at £3m, sits in a 1.1acre plot, and is available to view through Strutt and Parker on 01252 821102 or Savills on 01252 729000.

Lanercost has some grand country house proportions, including a handsome main staircase, fine cabinetry, and polished porcelain and marble floors. All quality features which 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 elegantly partners the walnut and glass paneled 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 offers an amphitheatre sized kitchen/breakfast/family sitting room, which opens onto a formal dining area, and beyond, a grandly proportioned drawing room.

The extensive range of built in Miele appliances in the kitchen include an espresso/cappuccino maker, and no less than three ovens, one being exclusively for steaming. A substantially sized utility room with gardener’s loo and glamorous marble guest WC cloakroom complete the ground floor accommodation.

Upstairs, all five 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 paneled balcony.
