Arguably one of Romsey's most unique and iconic contemporary homes extending to an impressive 4633sqft having been a finalist of Grand Designs in 2009.

Owners Comments

“Our visitors are always blown away by the dramatic double-atrium living spaces on the first floor. The views through the panoramic windows over our gorgeous garden and toward the New Forest never fail to stir us throughout all weathers and seasons.”

Introduction

Set within exclusive and beautifully landscaped private grounds approaching 1.5 acres, this striking home has been architecturally designed to provide an extensive open plan styling with excellent use of glazing to afford magnificent views and gloriously bright accommodation.

Cleverly arranged so that both the ground and first floor levels directly access the gardens, Woodside incorporates such an intricate level of design to provide delightful features including a double atrium style ceiling, elegant mezzanine floors, elaborate lighting, clever storage and a feature glass floor walkway.

The luxurious interior hosts Starck Duravit sanitary ware throughout, a stylish and practical kitchen living room and magnificent sitting room enjoying the back drop of the full width and height glazing with breathtaking views over the established south facing gardens.

Constructed in Zinc and natural slate roof with a combination of cedar boarding, white render and dry stone walling, the property affords a high degree of energy efficiency, complementing its wholly striking décor and design. Supplementing the main living accommodation is the excellent vaulted studio above the garage which could easily lend itself to conversion to a self contained annex for guest accommodation.

Description

A contemporary hardwood front door opens into the entrance hall which offers access to a luxurious cloakroom, a cloaks cupboard and the principal living area. Upon entering the house, the intricate design is immediately apparent including curved walls, atrium ceilings of Scandinavian Glulam beams and clever recessed display shelving. There are numerous attractive features to the house, the most impressive being the magnificent use of glass affording much natural light and stunning views to every aspect. The open plan styling to this level offers ultimate contemporary living and there are panoramic windows spanning the breadth and height of this floor overlooking the rear gardens. An exquisite glass walkway leads to the elegant dining area which cleverly accesses the extensive tiered sun terrace via double doors. Steps ascend to the kitchen/breakfast room which also features doors to the garden and an impressive bespoke oak kitchen with stylish polished concrete worktops. A central island provides a breakfast bar and further cabinets with wine rack. Integrated Siemens appliances include an induction hob with extractor, two ovens and warming drawer, wine cooler, coffee machine, dishwasher and fridge freezer. There are additional larder cupboards for storage. The oak flooring flows through to the beautiful sitting room which enjoys a balcony to the side garden and Juliet balcony overlooking the rear. The sitting room hosts recessed display shelving and modern drawer units and is centred upon a contemporary fireplace with potential for installation of a woodburning stove. A curved wall with staircase and courtesy lighting ascends to the library which is a wonderful resting place. A spiral staircase from the kitchen leads to a further mezzanine floor hosting an excellent office, galleried to the kitchen with built in desks and cabinet space. Glazed panels in the gallery and apex windows to the side allow views to the garden.

On the lower level are five well proportioned bedrooms, two with ensuite bathrooms, a luxury family bathroom and a useful laundry/utility room which offers plumbing for appliances, a large storage room, plant room and door to the sun terrace. The master bedroom suite is exquisite featuring a dual aspect with double doors to the sun deck, an open plan dressing room and striking ensuite wetroom with built in rain head shower, stylish elipse bath, twin circular basins with floating oak shelf and low level WC. All the bedrooms are of excellent dimensions, many offering built in wardrobes with the guest facility featuring doors to the sun deck and an ensuite shower room.

Studio

With its own private walkway, the studio is an impressive addition, benefitting from electric heating, a kitchen and WC, large enough to accommodate a shower room. The studio is beautifully vaulted with exposed painted beams and a full height apex window overlooking the gardens. It could easily be adapted to a large self contained annex if required, subject to usual consents.

Outside

Via an automated gate, a long sweeping driveway passes through the stunning, mature landscaped gardens culminating in a turning and parking area fronting the house and a triple garage block. A decked walkway approaches the front door and a pebble stone dry moat encircles the house. The detail of landscaping to Woodside is exceptional and the gardens approaching 1.5 acres provide the highest degree of privacy and seclusion with all year round screening and colour. The rolling lawns are shaped by a host of carefully arranged borders of established specimen trees and shrubs culminating in a sylvan backdrop and meandering woodland walks. Adjacent to the house is a wonderful ‘circular' patio with curved walling, a central border and built in seating. Steps ascend to a further entertaining area accessing the house. A large decked expanse and rockery is an ideal venue to enjoy the sunny aspect.
