Location
Birdshill Road is a private road set in the heart of the Crown Estate in Oxshott, one of the most prestigious private estates in Surrey. Ideally located between the lush countryside of the Surrey Downs and the outskirts of London, Oxshott has the feel of a rural village, but the style and sophistication of a chic city suburb.
Transport links are excellent – a 32 minute train journey from Oxshott mainline station takes you to London Waterloo, whilst the A3 and M25 nearby give easy road access both to central London, the wider motorway network and to Heathrow Airport (about 18 miles) and Gatwick Airport (about 22 miles).
Amenities
A selection of shops and amenities are available locally in and around Oxshott, Cobham and Esher, with larger shopping centres at Kingston (about 7 miles) and Guildford (about 14 miles). There are excellent sporting facilities in the area, with several golf clubs as well as the Oxshott Village Sports Club, which has nine all-weather tennis courts. In the wider area, racing is available at Ascot, Windsor, Kempton Park and Sandown.
There is an excellent selection of schools in the area, including Danes Hill School and Reed’s School in Oxshott, Claremont Fan Court in Esher, Rowan Preparatory School in Claygate and the American Community School and Yehudi Menuhin Music Academy in Cobham.

 

Description
Constructed in 2007 by the award winning Royalton Developments, Clifton House is a substantial and highly impressive mansion home, in one of the most prestigious private estates in the country. Designed and constructed to the highest level specifications, quality materials, fittings and craftsmanship are evident throughout the property, with no detail overlooked. Features include under floor heating throughout the ground and first floor, intelligent mood lighting, by iLight and an integrated Crestron audio system.

 

With over 12,000 square feet of accommodation, Clifton House offers not only luxurious family living space but also the potential for grand scale and opulent entertaining.

 

Accommodation

 

Ground Floor
A magnificent reception hall, with domed ceiling, Pelino marble floors and polished plaster walls, is dominated by an arresting double sweeping staircase to the first floor galleried landing. With finely handcrafted polished steel balustrades, this creates a truly impressive and imposing entrance to the house.   To the rear of the reception hall, steps lead down into the formal dining room. Beautifully appointed for elegant entertaining, this features the same marble floor, an attractive fireplace and enjoys views over and direct access to the stunning rear terrace and gardens beyond. The entertaining space flows smoothly from the dining room into the formal drawing room, with beautiful stained oak flooring, central fireplace and extensive built-in shelving and storage. This in turn opens into a smartly designed bar room, with a glass domed roof and French doors opening on to the terrace and gardens.

 

To the left of the reception hall lies the luxurious guest cloakroom and a further, front aspect, reception room/study. There is also access beyond to the four car integrated garage.

 

To the right of the reception hall, double doors open into the kitchen/breakfast room. Expansive and carefully designed, this forms the centre of the everyday living space so demanded by modern families. The bespoke designed walnut kitchen features cream Corian work surfaces, marble breakfast bar and an extensive range of integrated quality appliances. There is a delightful informal dining area, with further light flooding in from the glass roofed day room at the end of the kitchen. Opening directly on to a pretty, sheltered terrace, this is a charming space for relaxing with friends and family. There is also a convenient second staircase leading from here directly to the master bedroom suite on the first floor. To one side of the kitchen/breakfast room lies a large media/cinema room, with vaulted barrelled ceiling; to the other side, steps lead down to a lovely family room, with bifold doors opening out to the gardens.

 

A short corridor leads from the kitchen/breakfast room, past a good sized utility room, to the stunning indoor pool complex. With vaulted glass roof, reflective mosaic tiling and multiple sets of French double doors leading out to the gardens, this is an exceptionally attractive leisure space. The pool itself is complemented by a spa bath, steam room, shower and changing room, with a separate gymnasium positioned at the far end of the complex.

 

First Floor
The splendid master bedroom suite, with extensive views across the rear gardens, occupies a substantial proportion of the first floor accommodation. The bedroom and adjacent sitting room both enjoy direct access to a private terrace. There are two large dressing rooms, fitted with extensive storage space. A lavishly appointed marble en suite bathroom, with raised bath tub, walk-in shower and twin basins, opens out to its own private decked balcony, with hot-tub and outdoor shower. There are three further generously proportioned bedroom suites on this floor, with a dividing door leading through to the staff /annexe accommodation. This comprises a reception/bedroom, kitchen, bathroom and small private terrace with stairs leading down to the ground floor.

 

Second Floor
On the second floor, two large rooms share a “Jack &Jill” bathroom. Currently, one room serves as a games room but both could function as generous double bedrooms.

 

Gardens and Grounds
Clifton House is set within fully landscaped and immaculately maintained gardens. Every attention has been paid to the design of the grounds, with extensive lawns, a putting green, paved terraces (including covered terrace areas), a stunning Roman-style stone gazebo and a children’s play area. There is a full irrigation system. Carefully planted with an array of attractive and mature shrubs and trees, the gardens feel very private and secluded.

 

With the main ground floor reception rooms and the pool complex all offering direct access out to the gardens, the gardens enhance the already superb potential for grand scale entertaining as well as everyday family relaxation and enjoyment.

 

To the front of the property, electronic gates open on to a large block paved circular driveway, with central ornamental pond and surrounding landscaped gardens. There is abundant guest parking space. The driveway branches to one side of the property and leads to the integral four car garage.
