Decoration and Finish
Internal walls have a smooth plaster finish and emulsion paint.
Ceilings throughout are smooth set and are bordered with a plaster cornice, finished with emulsion paint.
The helical, floating staircase has been deliberately designed and regarded as a prominent furniture statement in keeping with the personality of its setting, ensuring it is not lost in the vast scale of the light flooded area of which it takes centre stage.
Each stone tread and riser was skilfully hand clad, then adorned by a magnificent hand crafted balustrade and handrail.
The property features a comprehensive electrical system with a generous supply of double power sockets throughout.
Sensor controlled external lighting with an override switch is provided around the exterior.
Smoke and heat detectors are fitted in accordance with current regulations.
Television and Telephone
The property is equipped with a comprehensive supply of television and telephone points. Television points are wired for Sky+ and Sky HD to enable purchaser connection and subscription, subject to availability of service provider.
Home Entertainment Pre-Wiring
Pre-selected rooms are wired to an advanced cable network to allow purchasers to link both audio and video with full infrared remote control at a later date.
An approved hardwired security system is provided to the main house, annexe and garage block with pre-wiring for purchaser provision of externally mounted CCTV cameras, if required.
Electronically operated gates combine video and audio entry.
Under floor heating is provided to the ground and first floors, and a traditional wet radiator system to both the second floor and the annexe.
The water system is pressurised and provides equally pressured hot and cold water, eliminating the need for tanks in the roof space, and pumps for showers. A back-up electric immersion heater is fitted to the hot water cylinders.
Woodberry Down is efficiently ventilated with a comfort cooling system whereby approximately 95% of the discharged warmth is reused.
Warm, moist air within the house is extracted through a central motor, which is then passed over a heat exchanger, while outside air is drawn back inside and tempered by the stored heat before being distributed back into the property.
During the warmer months, the supplied air bypasses the heat exchanger, preventing warm air being distributed back into the property, thus creating a more comfortable temperature environment.
The design and implementation of the exterior landscaping was considered to be as important as the architecture, specification and finish of the house itself.
RHS Chelsea double medallist Matt Keightley's vision was to ensure it would be elegant and sophisticated, with space to relax and entertain whilst combining aesthetics and function.
Carefully considered levels create a seamless transition between interior and exterior. A hand finished granite terrace borders the sunken lawn looking toward the mature woodland backdrop, wherein lie meandering walkways to an intimate setting complete with fire pit bordered by naturalistic seating.
A rustic oak framed loggia equipped with a functional outdoor kitchen provides an extension of the house, strategically positioned to provide a clear vantage point accross the garden, which in the evening can be subtly illuminated to highlight the creative planted landscape.
