Luxury family home in gated communityTuesday, 24 April 2012 08:33
Where: Compton Avenue, London
What: Compton Lodge
Price: guide price of £12.5 million
This week’s luxury property offers an entire lifestyle change.
Hidden inside a gated community the home known as Compton Lodge allows for an outdoors lifestyle despite being located in the city.
It has vast rolling grass areas, beautiful gardens and an indoor pool making it the ideal family property.
The stunning detached family home has seen plenty of refurbishment work resulting in a bond of modern architecture with the period façade and grand entranceway.
The two work well together to create a very unique character.
The property is a generous .04 acre lot and is situated close to the popular Hampstead Heath.
Guests are welcomed up the hedged drive to the traditional brick exterior of the home.
Once inside the home tells a different story with beautiful Italian timber floors, tiled flooring in other rooms, crisp contemporary walls and open-plan living.
French doors open onto a lovely sitting room complete with fireplace and draped windows.
But the main living area is open-plan combining the lounge, dining room, kitchen and then flowing outside into the gardens.
Glass is used throughout the home to take advantage of natural light and the beautiful surrounds.
There is a luxurious main bedroom and another five bedrooms, several with ensuites.
Healthy living is no problem with an indoor swimming pool and detached gymnasium on the premises.
If this is not entertainment enough the home also has its own cinema room.
Pop art features predominantly throughout the home and is a good bridge between the new contemporary architecture and the older period features of the home.
There are several inclusions built into the design of the home such as a temperature controlled wine cellar, under floor heating, smart electrical system and spa.
This home offers luxury living with plenty of outside space and very private boundaries.
It is on the market with Aston Chase, for more details visit the website.
