Octagon Move into the Chilterns

16/10/2014

The beautiful Chiltern region of Buckinghamshire has always been on Octagon’s wish list as an ideal location for their super luxe family homes. Finally the perfect site emerged in Little Chalfont, where they have now built Kingswood House, on the exclusive private Harewood Road.

The six bedroom, five bathroom detached property is within walking distance of the extensive array of the local village shops, as well as Chalfont and Latimer station where both Chiltern Trains and the Metropolitan Underground line run regular services into the heart of London. The journey takes just under an hour. There is also easy access into London and Heathrow Airport via the nearby M40 and M25 motorways.

Kingswood House, constructed in pleasing traditional brick with stone detailing, is a one-off creation from Octagon’s talented in house team of architects and designers. In contrast to the timeless exterior, the interior layout is sleek and contemporary. Starting in the marble floored entrance hall, which has a dramatic triple height atrium and feature back-lit mirror on the staircase – in itself another design statement – the rich walnut treads and handrail add gravitas to the light-loving glazed balustrades.

Ground floor accommodation is both spacious and stylish, with study, TV Den, dining room, super-sized kitchen and separate utility room. Fitted high gloss linear units in the kitchen incorporate a full range of Miele appliances, plus the essential Quooker tap, which provides boiling water to order.

The stone worktop centre island has ample space for a breakfast bar, plus there is an adjoining informal dining area and family sitting room. The elegant drawing room comes with a charming focal point contemporary gas fireplace, and all the rooms to the rear of the house have French doors opening onto a deep rear paved terrace.

Upstairs in the main house are four double bedrooms, all with en-suite bathrooms, the Master’s being clad in sumptuous marble and accessed through a dressing room fitted with a generous run of built in wardrobes. On the second floor is bedroom five, a separate family bathroom and giant 35 ft plus playroom, already plumbed for a mini kitchen, so could make the perfect den for snack loving teenagers.

The adjoining triple garage has first floor accommodation accessed by its own staircase, making an ideal staff or office suite. With its secure gated entrance leading onto a wide paved forecourt, Kingswood House sits in a South West backing garden, stunningly landscaped and planted by Octagon’s horticultural consultants, and extending to 0.68 acres.
