At Fresh Design Blog, we’re suckers for dream homes and grand properties with modern interiors, so we can’t help but love the look of the Roehampton Gate property currently for sale through Savills.
This huge home located close to Richmond Park in London is the ultimate detached family home, that manages to straddle that tricky tightrope between modern and classical.
This double-fronted property makes a strong first impression, with room for several cars to park. Upon entering, the spacious hallway draws the eye towards the gorgeous feature staircase, with the skylight above sending a shard of light to only accentuate it further.
Either stained oak or limestone flooring are used throughout, ensuring the whole building has that feel of luxury.
The Richard Baker kitchen has been finished to the highest specification, and the large island space ensures it is an absolute dream to cook in. This is without even mentioning the generously-proportioned walk-in pantry.
Other than the seven spacious bedrooms – including a huge, plush master suite with two separate dressing rooms and its own private balcony – the centrepiece of the property is undeniably the huge swimming pool complex, complete with large pool, leisure and gym areas, in addition to plant rooms and a temperature-controlled wine cellar.
If you considered having staff living on the grounds, this would be a definite possibility too, as the lower ground floor includes an open-plan kitchen/living room, bathroom and bedroom which combined with its own separate access means independence and privacy are secured.
The west-facing garden has been designed and landscaped by the acclaimed Lizzie Taylor, and includes some beautiful stone steps and a myriad of terraces. For those who prefer to stay indoors, the huge, high-tech media room should tick all the boxes.
The property is available through Savills. One can but dream!6
