Full Details

As soon as you approach this quite remarkable residence, you just can't wait to discover what awaits inside, especially if you know what once stood in its place just a few years ago, before its unbelievable transformation. Stepping through the bespoke front door, which in itself is a taster for how exquisite the entire home is, you're bowled over by the warm and welcoming accommodation.

The 2016 wraparound extension has added a comprehensive array of both modern and timeless additions to the 1930s three-storey detached dwelling-from Audley Antique bricks and reclaimed Victorian cobbles, to an all-encompassing app with designated remote tech management team. When the owner tells you "nothing's normal here", it's obvious why when you hear of the magnitude of effort that's gone into the whole structure- involving the installation of thousands of metres of hidden cabling to produce a 'smart' way of living.

Purchased as a project, this tailor-made property has been specially formulated and future-proofed not only for this family, but for all families, and for all eventualities. Set centrally in Bromham village's "bubble of love" community, this particular address is affectionately referred to as the 'Poynfer' house, because of its location 0.4 miles (point four-poyn-fer) or less from all the important amenities, such as the nurturing primary school, local pub, and a Budgens supermarket.

Internally, both husband and wife agree on many of their favourite spots: the spectacular window seat on the landing, perfect for perching under the arched window with a book; looking over to the house from the bottom of the garden, giving a fantastic viewpoint of what they've created together; the unique textured wave wall in the dining area; and of course, the terrific 'Cutting Room' cinema room, where the family now relish in popcorn-filled film nights (and where Mr used to cut wood for the building works).

No stone has been left unturned in the makings of this abode. Excluding the original Victorian floor tiles in the boot room, every level and every feature has been updated to fit a luxury, social, yet homely lifestyle. The music room has space for drumkits and a piano, and really exudes that cool, artistic vibe with its funky wallpaper. The main living/dining/kitchen is open to each area (with the ability to be sectioned off if required), as well as the elevated porcelain tile and black granite Gabion basket terrace, allowing for outdoor summer soirees, and cosy Christmas gatherings by the fire.

The bi-fold doors and sky lanterns give even more natural light to an already bright and beautifully lit home, and the owners have enjoyed watching fireworks and full moons through these from the comfort of their sofa. For day-to-day dinners, and large dinner parties, the magnificent kitchen has everything you'll need: a wide range of high-spec appliances, hardwood storage, a Kashmir granite central island and bar, and atmospheric mood lighting, along with the adjoining utility room fitted to match, where you'll find the wine fridge...

The owners have put a lot of thought into practical solutions, notably the boot room with connected wet room, where you can clean off after dog walking, gardening, or jogging around the surrounding countryside. Once mud-free, dogs can be happily tucked away in the understairs 'dog house'.
To the first floor, the vast master bedroom offers an incredible dressing room with plentiful storage provisions. The en suite bathroom is a sanctuary of calm, comprising a walk-in shower, freestanding bath, and his and hers sinks. All five bedrooms have space for king size beds and wardrobes, and all five bath and shower rooms are neutrally presented with attractive tiling and sparkling chrome fittings.

The predominantly south-facing 100' garden has been exceptionally well plotted and meticulously kept to provide a substantial lawn, impressive terrace, and a gravelled seating and allotment area that captures the last of the evening sunshine. To each side is access to the laurel-bordered and pillared frontage, via passageway with woodstore, and the full-length driveway.

All this, and we still have the garage to highlight. And what a garage it is! All groundwork, design and decoration have been laid (including a fully fitted kitchen, contemporary shower room, and dual offices) in preparation to supply a showroom-style car store and workshop, self-contained annexe, or even business premises for multiple staff.
