Incredible kitchen/family room leading to poolside
Four double bedrooms, four ensuites
Tripple garage with extensive, tree lined driveway
Occasionally, a home comes to the market that makes it difficult to convey in writing just how truly remarkable the property is. This stunning opportunity on Hardhorn Road is one such example.
Hardhorn Road is a sought-after residential road known for its diverse range of unique, executive and truly stand out properties. Within walking distance of the popular market town of Poulton-le-Fylde, the home is ideally located for local amenities including exceptional schools (both primary and secondary), boutique shops/cafes/bistros & Poulton train station to name but a few. Whilst the property offers an incredible position for everyday convenience, the plot itself is absolutely enormous and the home is set back behind an impressive gated entrance ensuring complete privacy.
Designed, built and finished by the current homeowners, it has to be said that our clients have done an incredible job of building something truly special with this property. Aesthetically, the property is bespoke by design and quite unlike any other home in the vicinity. Architecturally the design was inspired by a golf course in Virginia (USA) and thanks to the structural ‘peeks’ in the build, the property takes on a different look depending on your view point. A large driveway lined with beautiful woodland trees guides you toward the entrance of this home. Externally the driveway offers ample off-road parking which is plenty big enough to accommodate a dozen or so vehicles, however a triple garage (made to measure) offers more private parking if required. Already rigged up with electric and with a kitchenette in situ the garage could lend itself to a variety of uses, including a gym, workshop or perhaps a secondary dwelling (subject to obtaining the relevant plans and permissions).
Internally the property is every inch as impressive as the first impressions would have you hope for. They say that you only get one chance to make a first impression, and the first impression you receive when you enter this home is one you will certainly never forget. This vast space currently houses a large family dining area and has an incredibly ‘regal’ feel to it thanks to the custom finishes and attention to detail such as the stunning overhanging, designer chandeliers that watch over this space and the piano that sits beside the dining area. The entrance hall paves the way to all of the rooms on the ground floor of this home, including the kitchen/family room which really draws you in…
The shaker style kitchen offers all of the mod-cons, space, storage and food preparation that the modern day family could wish for. A marble topped chefs island sits central which are lit by the Robert Chelsom design lights that hang over-head, a beautiful aesthetic detail in-keeping with this space. As beautiful as the designer lights are, you are unlikely to need them during the day as both the kitchen and dining areas here are surrounded (almost entirely) by glass. Bi-folding doors to the back, windows to the side and sky-lights overhead quite literally flood this space with natural light and only add to the feeling of space which you naturally already get thanks to the open plan layout. The back wall of the kitchen houses an American-style fridge/freezer, integral microwave, oven and grill which are entirely self-cleaning.
Whilst the kitchen does a great job of bringing the outside in, the dining arrangement & sun-loungers do a great job of bringing the inside out. If you enjoy dining al-fresco or making the most of the outdoors then you are quite literally spoilt for choice in your options of where to relax outside. The landscaped gardens are surrounded on the outskirts by an impressive floral arrangement and mature woodland trees which only add to the feeling of privacy. Amongst the sun-loungers we find a sports-pool, a perfect opportunity to vary the routine of any fitness enthusiast or of course, a wonderful spot to soak the evening away after a long day.
Bi-folding doors draw you back in to the home, this time into the main family lounge. As we have come to expect from this property, the lounge is incredibly well proportioned, surrounded by bespoke coving and finished perfectly with the vendors choice of décor. An exposed brick chimney sits centrally and houses a log burner which we are told heats the home in minutes in winter months. A secondary lounge or ‘snug’ can be found across the entrance hallway/dining area. This intimate space provides a ‘cosier’ spot to relax of an evening and too features a log burner as well as large double glazed windows which give you a peek in to the front gardens of the home. Finally, in this wing of the home we have a third reception room which could lend itself to a variety of uses. The current homeowners are using this space as a home office/study.
On the other side of the home, we find three of the four bedrooms offered. As you would hope, they are all a fantastic size but the term ‘well proportioned’ simply doesn’t do the master suite justice…
The master bedroom enjoys dual aspect views to both the swimming pool to the rear of the home, and the canopy which sits on a lawned area to the side elevation. This bedroom offers incredible square footage, so much so that the vendors have set up an informal seating arrangement to one side, essentially doubling this space up as a reception room. The en-suite is more comparable in size to a family bathroom, and as such offers everything you would expect (and more) from a family suite included a Jack & Jill vanity unit, stand alone bath, walk-in shower, toilet & bidet. An impressive walk-in wardrobe means that you need not sacrifice any living space for storage.
The other two bedrooms on the ground floor are also generously proportioned and are plenty big enough for king-size beds & then some. Both bedrooms, as is the bedroom upstairs, are served by private en-suites one of which boasts a designer, Laura Ashley suite.
A glass-lined staircase guides you upstairs, under and incredibly impressive chandelier and toward the fourth and final bedroom. As we found downstairs, this room is a fantastic size and benefits from a private balcony over looking the swimming pool to the back. The perfect spot to enjoy your morning coffee and plan the day ahead!
No entertaining house is complete of course, without a private bar (or pick’n’mix store) depending on your preference. In any case, a contemporary bar with custom lighting, sink, electrics and seating can be found off the first floor landing. A versatile area that can be cut to good use, whatever the occasion. Beside the bar, the property boasts a cinema room complete with overhead projector and the most incredible ‘lazy boy-style’ seating – a great spot for eating popcorn. The room has been ‘blacked out’ to offer a complete cinema experience and is topped off perfectly by the ‘twilight effect’ lighting on the ceiling, which gives the impression of sitting under the stars. Double doors take you on to an internal balcony (large enough for additional seating) which overlooks the entrance hallway, allowing you to enjoy the sheer grandeur of this home from a totally different angle.
What the agent says…
In the video tour of this home I mentioned “when you buy a property, you aren’t just buying bricks and mortar. You’re buying a new lifestyle”. If you haven’t watched the video, please do check out the ‘video tour’ tab. My clients have done an exceptional job of building a property that comes hand in hand with what is sure to be an incredible lifestyle. This is because the home takes care of every aspect of family life; from the layout of the property, the way it flows, the flawless attention to detail throughout and of course, the properties prime location. When I first visited the property I was blown away by the grand proportions and finish, this is a property that any buyer would be lucky to call home. Whilst I have made every effort to ensure this advert does the property justice – no amount of images or video footage can replace the feeling of seeing a property like this for yourself.
