The full design of this spectacular 10,000 square foot home set amongst the rolling hills of the Surrey countryside , is a labour of our love and lust; a large and complex project and one we had the pleasure to lead.
Having worked previously with the same owner in the completion of a luxury interior fit-out of their landmark Dublin penthouse project, our experience and knowledge were onboarded once again, appointed as the main contractor to deliver the project from the break of ground to its turn-key completion.
With the owners currently living abroad, our project management team handled the project on their behalf. Working with our interior architectural team on pre-planning and design concept development, we ideated and devised layouts to fulfil dreams and exceed expectations. Layouts focused on the incredible aspect to the back and side of the property, with space planning and design investigations to fulfil the leisure, entertaining, and privacy priorities of our client and their family.
Our work included the specification of all architectural finishes, from doors and windows to prominent construction detailing, decorative plasterwork, woodwork and electrical layouts, in the prescribed style. A sophisticated interior design approach, with contemporary twists on a beautifully classic style, carried the best of international excellence with a subtle, warm aesthetic. Hints of art deco, with brass finishes, period light fittings and edged mirrors, highlighted a particular style of our clients.
On the ground floor, a series of large, interconnecting reception rooms are accessed via the impressive entrance hall, with a striking double height atrium and feature curved staircase. The contemporary, polished interior finishes of the lobby set the style and elegance for the rest of the house.
Our design for the spacious marquee kitchen is modern with areas for cooking, dining, relaxing and entertaining. It connects graciously with a formal dining and living suite, and beyond, to a sophisticated cocktail lounge and wine cellar, complete with a Baby Grande. Though expansive, the ground floor is a haven of comfort and relaxation.
A series of clever internal connection corridors offer informal access to service and plant rooms, and the double carport, catering to the needs of a modern family home. Bespoke joinery throughout the house provides ample storage and practical living solutions.
The spacious first floor caters for a growing family and guests, with a series of elegant bedroom suites each with walk-ins and ensuites. The Master Bedroom Suite includes his and hers quarters alongside a private lounge complete with a cleverly disguised state-of-the-art TV system, recessed from view when not in use. This upper floor includes a dark, moody and atmospheric split level cinema room for cosy evenings in.
We furnished the home using a balance of contemporary classic interior design with the client’s own collection of furniture, art and sculpture. Our range of Ventura upholstery and furniture create a look of style and sophistication, with a focus on sleek joinery and built-in furniture carrying embellishment and colour. This is married with a curated mix of designer and vintage pieces around the house, telling the charming story of this family's life.
A once-in-a-lifetime job for our team to deliver a once-in-a-lifetime home.
