Description
A detached five bedroom, four bathroom family residence of circa 5,000 sq. ft. (including garage). Saffrons was redesigned and rebuilt to an exacting standard by the owner of London Residential Land and the design has been influenced by the Directors many years experience of property development in London.

The property is brick built with a raked out mortar which is complemented beautifully by the careful attention to stone detail along with contemporary black aluminium windows and matching slate roof and dormers giving it a tremendous kerb appeal.

Saffrons has many “Wow factors” and very special features such as the curved canter-lever staircase clad in polished porcelain with curved glass balustrade, a truly magnificent bespoke masterpiece.

To the rear of the house spanning over three floors are double glazed curved glass windows allowing an abundance of natural light along with uninterrupted extensive views from within the house.

All the bathrooms were carefully designed to allow practicality without losing maximum visual appeal using LED lighting, canter-lever toilets and fully tiled bathrooms with flush floor shower areas.

The sanitary ware is Villeroy & Boch throughout with Dorn Bracht fittings and heated mirrors. Extra attention has been applied to the lighting, heating and sound throughout the house. Lutron Homeworks is fitted throughout the property allowing a clever computerised system that can be changed to suit each room’s ambience. The heating is underfloor in the whole house making it very efficient and cost effective. Each partition is insulated to allow minimum heat and sound loss. The integrated sound system allows the use of wi-fi to be used by either a computer or i-phone connected to ceiling speakers in every room in the house.

The owner of London Residential Land has worked for many years in the past with interior designers such as Alexander James, Honki and Kelly Hoppen, bringing his talent to Saffrons and thus creating an exquisite home with a clean layout and a luxurious look. Every room has a palette of neutral colours and sophisticated furniture using some of the latest trends and combining with modern aesthetics. ‘The spa is a real sanctuary’.
