Situated in a private plot of 1.8 acres, a beautiful residence of 15,500 square feet incorporating internationally-inspired interiors from the Consero London design team.
‘Furze Croft’ is the result of a 24 month bespoke design and build programme by Consero London, a multi-award winning luxury developer, project manager and design house that creates exceptional private residences in the world’s most exclusive addresses. Bordered by high mature hedging and trees, providing privacy from the road, ‘Furze Croft’ has an elegant main façade and side wings, approached through automatic security gates and a resin bonded gravel driveway, bordered by trees and hedging and completed by a turning circle with feature landscaping.
Arranged over lower ground, ground and first floors, the house has a magnificent double volume entrance hall with sweeping staircase and glass roof cupola: designed to impress. The hall provides access to the double drawing room, 18 seater dining room and kitchen and breakfast room, all overlooking the rear garden and grounds. Each of these rooms has French doors opening onto an extensive flagstone paved terrace, allowing for indoor-outdoor entertaining and dining. There is also an elegant study/library with hand crafted cabinetry and a comfortable family/TV room.
‘Furze Croft’ has six bedroom suites consisting of master bedroom suite with private terrace (overlooking the rear lawns) and twin walk-in dressing rooms and bathrooms; four bedroom suites with walk-in dressing rooms and ensuites, and one bedroom with an ensuite bathroom. On the first floor of one wing there is also a two bedroom staff apartment with self contained kitchen and sitting room, which could alternatively serve as an annex for a teenager or relative.
‘Furze Croft’ has been designed to provide a range of leisure facilities and for sophisticated and large scale entertaining. One wing contains a large VIP entertaining suite consisting of a custom made bar and drinks lounge. Folding glass doors can be open to merge this space with the outside terrace, forming a dramatic reception venue which can entertain up to 200 people
The other wing provides an extensive leisure complex which features an entrance lobby, swimming pool room with 11 metre long, 2.1 metre deep swimming pool, spa pool and lounge areas; a gymnasium, sauna and changing/toilet facilities. Folding glass doors in the pool room can be opened onto the garden, creating a large inside-outside leisure area. On the lower ground floor is a stunning private cinema with customised wall paneling, tiered platform flooring just like a real movie house and sumptuous sofa seating. This floor also has a wine display suite containing a lobby with specially commissioned oak wine display cabinets and a glass enclosed temperature controlled wine room capable of holding some 1,700 bottles of fine wine and spirits.
The mansion has been built to an exacting specification with the finest materials and craftsmen sourced from around the world. The entrance hall has Botticino Fiorito marble flooring with Marron Dior black marble inlay, a Venizia Stone Fireplace and a staircase crafted using a bespoke baluster design which is repeated throughout the house in various design details. This is complete with a custom made crystal chandelier which hangs from the glass ceiling on the top floor.
