This unique and contemporary property fully embraces its private wooded setting at the top of Aspley Heath, one of the most sought after addresses in the county. In Victorian times there were three hospitals built on Aspley Heath for the sole reason of the quality of air and environment.
Architect designed, this three level house takes full advantage of its stunning location with picturesque views on the Beds/Bucks border.
Great attention to detail has gone into both the design and execution and the property merges into the landscape with the use of cedar boarding and cedar shingle roof to soften the structure.
The main fully glazed living area is open plan and benefits from a southerly aspect enabling the sun to provide passive solar heating throughout the main part of the day.
The private landscaped gardens surrounding the house are a haven for wildlife. The property is well located for access onto both The Heath and woodland offering a wonderful healthy environment for leisure pursuits including walking, cycling and riding.
First impressions are deceptive and it is only by stepping over the threshold that one can fully appreciate the quality and flexibility of the accommodation, and synergy with its wonderful setting amongst nature and the lifestyle opportunities it provides.
A viewing will therefore be essential.
A handmade oak front door opens into the reception hall with two sliding oak doors revealing the cloakroom and cloakroom cupboard. The hall opens into a dramatic vaulted inner hall with bespoke oak staircase gracefully allowing access to the multi levels.
The ground floor adopts an open plan feel with all rooms benefitting from natural light flooding in from the fully glazed southern elevation. The sitting room enjoys a triple aspect with French doors opening onto the decked multi functional balcony, serving as an observation platform and seating area, perfect for al-fresco entertaining.
The dining room leads through to the kitchen/breakfast room. The Poggenpohl kitchen is well equipped benefitting from a range of fitted base and eye level units, with black granite work surfaces including a breakfast bar. Appliances include Miele oven, grill, microwave, fridge/freezer, dishwasher and Atag five ring gas hob with extractor fan. The utility room is equally well equipped with fitted units, along with tiled shower cubicle. Doors lead to the outside and into the integral double garage.
The oak staircase gently rises to the first floor. The family room is dramatic with vaulted ceiling and balcony overlooking the galleried stairwell. In one corner is a feature gas fire. Double doors open into the inspirational office which is flooded with natural light and benefits from its own private balcony with views of a beautiful mature Scots pine and wooded valley beyond.
Leading off the landing is a spacious bedroom which lends itself to be used as the master or guest bedroom suite, with cloakroom and airing cupboard. Concealed within the room is a shower and wardrobe.
The remaining bedrooms are to be found on the lower ground floor. The main bedroom on this level enjoys a dual aspect with French doors opening onto the rear lawn. This room benefits from bespoke fitted oak wardrobes, separate dressing area and fully tiled en suite shower room. Leading off the hall with its own extensive oak cupboards are a further two bedrooms served by a fully tiled family bathroom.
The property is approached along Holly Walk, a gravelled drive providing access to only three individual properties.
A gravelled drive allows generous parking and access to the integral double garage, with electric up and over door. Raised flower borders edge the drive.
A pedestrian gate opens onto a paved path that leads round the house allowing access to the rear doors with steps down to the landscaped tiered garden. The garden has been professionally designed to ensure harmony between the house and its tranquil surroundings. The upper tier features a semi circular lawn edged again by well stocked borders. A flight of wide circular steps lead down to the main lawn which runs round the side and rear of the house with attractive water feature. A semi circular upper pond allows water to cascade into a rectangular lower pond. A further flight of timber steps lead down to the lower tiered lawn edged by mature herbaceous borders with fine specimen trees defining the boundaries and providing a high degree of privacy. A grass path runs up to a pedestrian gate with direct access onto Holly Walk.
