Property Summary

Set in three acres of mature landscaped grounds in the Surrey hamlet of Worplesdon Hill, this bespoke property extends to in excess of 10,000 sq. ft. providing three levels of contemporary family living at its most luxurious.

Specifically designed and built to meet the individual lifestyle of our client, Appleton offers a unique and impressive fusion of classical and contemporary architecture coupled with interiors modelled for sophisticated yet practical living. The features that have been created in this home are of the highest possible specification with no expense spared. Attention to detail and finish throughout is simply unparalleled and inspiring.

Entrance
A wrought-iron gated entrance with imposing stone pillars announces the entrance to Appleton from Heath House Road. Following the sweeping rectangular paved driveway to a circular stone fountain, set in the centre of a manicured front garden, the full impact of the impressive proportions of Appleton and its classical façade are revealed.

Architecture
The beautifully proportioned façade of Appleton presents a classical interpretation, featuring traditional handmade red brick elevations with Portland stone window dressings and a central white pillared entrance portico. The roof tiles are made of handmade natural clay and the building is of a traditional brick and block construction to provide high efficiency insulation. The rear of the house is dominated by a double-height balconied window, which rises from first floor level to provide maximum daylight to flood into the central grand staircase within. The ground level is characterised by twin sets of French windows on either side of a projecting triple set of French doors opening directly onto the stone paved swimming pool area. The pleasing geometry of the ground level is echoed above at first floor with hardwood weighted sliding sash windows. Both front and rear elevations of the house are framed with Portland stone architraves and cornicing.

Interior Fittings & Design
The design team our client used to help create Appleton specially sourced sympathetic furniture and one-off items with the resulting scheme being luxurious, enjoyable and ideal for the modern family lifestyle. This has been achieved through the ambiance mood lighting, clean lines, solid hardwood furniture and doors, stone fireplaces, natural crema marfil marble floors with the matching made-to-order staircase with glass balustrade and leather handrail, the individual handmade fittings such as the cricket-ball door handles in one of the children’s bedroom and the colour-schemed shower wands. Further especially commissioned features include the suspended 26-foot crystal chandelier centre piece visible from all three floors, the 700 bottle wine store with floor to ceiling glass doors, the bespoke designer baths in the ‘His & Hers’ en suites and the mirrored ballet studio with sprung dance floor. A contemporary and tastefully customised interior which complements the classic façade.

Entrance Hall & Grand Staircase
Providing a winning combination of grand proportion and understated elegance, the signature staircase features a glass balustrade and leather handrail rising through a triple height atrium space. The centrepiece is a 26-foot long crystal chandelier suspended from the roof. The oversized solid hardwood front door complements the natural crema marfil marble floors, which have been butt-jointed and honed on site creating an exquisite 1st impression upon entry.

Living Accommodation
The stunning open plan kitchen features a large central island with integrated appliances and forms the hub of the home. All kitchen furniture is bespoke and handmade with granite work surfaces. The range of kitchen appliances are of the highest calibre as would be expected from a home of this pedigree including Marques such as Miele, Sub-Zero and Wolf to provide the latest in contemporary design and technology. The modern dining area sits between the kitchen and living room with light pouring in from the floor to ceiling French doors. The rear wall is made of glass behind which sits the feature 700-bottle wine store. The dual aspect drawing room with natural stone feature fireplace benefits from a 7.1 surround sound system and 60 inch TV.
