Kingsbank, a property that redefines modern architecture in the local area, has recently been constructed by Aldermans Estates Limited to the highest of standards. The property sits on a plot of 0.5 acres in an unrivalled location overlooking the Duke of Bedford Estate and woodland.
As you enter through the front door a large roof light floods the double storey hallway with light and highlights the Spanish marble floor. A marble staircase with a glass wall leads to the first floor. A second staircase leads to the cinema/games room/gym/office. There is also a lift by Axess 2 which serves all floors.
A large sitting room is at the end of the hallway and has a Dru three sided glass fire and a dark oak format parquet floor. Sliding doors open to a vast outdoor lounge which is perfect for al fresco entertaining. There are two further reception rooms with marble flooring and glass walls to maximise the light from the hallway. The house has been designed with the incredible views in mind and as a result they are visible from almost everywhere.
The kitchen/breakfast/sitting room overlooks the garden and has woodland views. There are three sets of sliding doors opening to the garden and terrace. The handmade kitchen, by Jane Cheel Furniture, has a range of wall and base units, an island unit, Krion worktops, an integrated sink with Franke taps and the latest Siemens appliances. These include a five hotplate hob, two steam ovens, two microwaves, two warming drawers, a full height fridge and freezer, and a dishwasher. A Spanish marble floor runs through the room.
First Floor Landing
A marble staircase with a glass wall leads from the entrance hall to the first floor landing area which is carpeted in dense twist carpet on Cloud 9 underlay.
The master bedroom has a fully equipped luxurious dressing room and an en suite finished with Porcelanosa fittings comprising two showers, a WC and a freestanding egg bath. Glass sliding doors open to a Juliet balcony.
The four further bedrooms all have fitted wardrobes and en suites finished to the highest standard with Porcelanosa fittings. They are all carpeted with dense twist carpet on Cloud 9 underlay. Glass sliding doors in the second and third bedrooms open to a Juliet balcony.
A fully automated house control system by Control4 means the heating, lighting, audio visual, security cameras, blinds and curtains can all be controlled by the five wall mounted touch screens, an iPad, iPhone or other types of handheld device. The lighting is controlled by contemporary touch light switches located on the walls. The Vent-Axia heat recovery system ensures all rooms have a fresh air change every two hours and use the latest heat exchangers to remove the heat from the outgoing air and put in into the new fresh air.
Lift and Garage
A large lift by Axess 2 serves all the floors including the fully finished two and a half car garage which has underfloor heating and tiling.
A large garden and driveway with ample parking for numerous cars stands on a plot of just over 0.5 acres. The architect designed house is unique and is constructed to the highest of standards. The ground floor external walls are constructed of Welsh limestone hand laid by stone masons and pointed with a complementary coloured mortar. The first floor is maintenance free through coloured anti fungal render topped with an aluminium coping. The roof covering is an Alwitra Evalon single ply membrane with a green sedum tray roof. All carry a 20 year guarantee. Solid insulation boards to all walls, ceilings and floors ensure truly exceptional thermal levels which are further enhanced by the aluminium doors and windows with solar thermal reflective glass. The outside terrace has the same Spanish marble as inside but with a slip resistant finish. A covered sitting and dining area provide nearly all year alfresco living. The gardens are laid to lawn with ornamental hedging and planting enhanced by house, garden, drive and tree lighting. An area of the garden has been designed and supplied with all services for an outdoor swimming pool, sauna, shower and changing facility if so desired.
