A House For All Seasons


Octagon pride themselves on only selecting the most prime locations for their super luxe properties, ensuring their purchasers have year round contentment. So no surprise that their latest home to be launched this month is set in an impeccable, south facing, 0.7 acre plot on the exclusive Crown Estate in Oxshott, Surrey. Definitely one of England’s hotspots, this private Surrey estate, awarded the title ‘Britain’s most expensive village’, offers idyllic family living and is often likened to America’s Beverley Hills.

The ground floor at Regent House is a dream sweep of lofty family living and grand entertaining space. Many of the rooms have double doors opening onto the impressive marble floor entrance hall, which has an equally impressive marble guest cloakroom/WC and is also graced by a triple height window overlooking the rear gardens. With all reception doors fully opened, the interconnecting areas would create the perfect space for a large scale party.

Residents fortunate enough to live in a house like this would tend to devote their mornings to a spot of work in the comms-savvy study, or simply stretch out with the papers in the airy family room, complete with contemporary floating fireplace, before sliding onto a stool at the kitchen centre island to chat to the ‘chef’ operating the huge bank of integrated Miele appliances. Family and friends occasions are catered for comfortably in the adjoining breakfast area, with ample space for a 10 seater table and chairs, and then can be royally entertained afterwards in the ground floor cinema room. In addition to copious storage incorporated in the kitchen’s sleek, high gloss lacquered units, there is more in the separate utility room, which doubles as a second kitchen, having both an oven, hob and fridge, along with an extra sink, plus washer and dryer.

More formal entertaining can take place in the dining room, a light drenched room with French doors onto the garden, where the opposite wall and two access doors are totally glazed giving clear views of a built-in long bar in elegant walnut, which incorporates twin glass fronted wine chillers and provides useful storage for glasses, cutlery and the extra dinner service.

Moving out of the dining room, hosts and guests can retire to the well-proportioned 25’ x 23’ drawing room, which has more French doors leading onto the garden and an elegant limestone and chrome fireplace with gas fired logs, which creates a welcoming focal point on colder days.

Gliding up the marble and glass main staircase to the first floor, four double bedrooms await, all with bespoke fitted wardrobes and en suite bathrooms. The Master goes one further, having both a super large marble bathroom and walk in dressing room. A glass panelled balcony can be accessed from both Master and Guest bedrooms, presenting both owners and guest suite occupants with the pleasant choice of breakfasting on their own elevated terrace overlooking the garden instead of descending the stairs to the breakfast room.

On the second floor the broad centre landing separates an equally large fifth bedroom with its own en suite shower room, and a super-sized games room with built-in hospitality unit comprising drinks chiller, dishwasher, sink and storage.

A second front door adjoining the three car garage opens into a lobby where the utility/second kitchen can be accessed, and stairs up to a self-contained flat comprising a studio bedroom and en suite shower room, making a perfect staff or granny annexe.

Outside, the main video controlled entrance gates swing onto a broad front drive, where visitors can park with ease. To the rear of the house, beyond the extensive paved terrace is the most stunning garden, where undulating expanses of lawn and a dramatic rockery rise to meet a screen of mature trees and shrubs.

Priced at £5,750,000, Regent House can be viewed at weekends from 10am – 4pm through appointed agents Grosvenor Billinghurst telephone 01932 588288, or to view further details on Regent House please click here.
