A magnificent 'country estate' in London, backing onto the open expanses of Putney Heath, with staff cottage, indoor heated swimming pool, stables, chicken coup, vegetable patch & extensive gardens.
The property is approached via electrical wrought iron gates and a gravel drive, with ample secure parking. The house sits privately in just over an acre of grounds, alongside the separate stables and garage, with staff accommodation above.
The house has been extensively modernised to an exacting standard, with absolutely no expense spared and has been perfectly designed to suit the needs of a growing family. The refurbishment was carried out by Martin Brudnizki, famous for the redevelopment of Scott's Resturant and The Ivy Club.
The accommodation in the main house extends to over 11,000 sq ft, with all the rooms affording views over the extensive grounds. In addition there is a complex of cellar rooms with the facility to store a fine wine collection at cool temperatures.
The reception rooms on the ground floor provide for both formal and informal entertaining on a grand scale, all with excellent proportions and high ceilings. Of particular note is the stunning formal drawing room, with its beautiful working fireplace and this leads into the cinema room, with its state of the art electronic screen and projection equipment.
The kitchen/breakfast/family room is every chef's dream, with its two huge professional ovens, two fridges and two dishwashers. There is a stylish central gas fireplace serving both the kitchen and dining room, which divides the two rooms.
There are two staircases to the first floor where there are five bedrooms, including the principal bedroom with its lavish en suite bath and dressing rooms. On the top floor there are two further bedrooms plus a spacious room incorporating a kitchen and large games area.
The indoor swimming pool is accessed both from the house and externally and also opens onto the gardens. The truly splendid garden even has secret doors onto Putney Heath, previously used for access by horseback to the Heath.
