For many homeowners the Ideal Home Show, which returns once again to the iconic Earls Court London this March, is the highlight of their year and 2014’s Spring Ideal Home is promising an event that is bigger than ever, with more surprises, celebrity guests and inspiration.
But this year perhaps you could save your time, energy and inevitable sore feet and just book a viewing at the new show stopping ideal Show Home in Sunninghill on edge of Royal Berkshire?
Millgate are opening the doors of their latest creation on Saturday 29th March and this spectacular house, simply named ‘Oakwood’, is set to be as lavish and majestic as their masterpiece Highview Manor in Boars Hill, close to the spires of Oxford, which won numerous awards and accolades last year.
Oakwood is a magnificent new English country home set within its own exquisite mature grounds and is the ultimate expression of quality, distinction and style. Accessed via a private driveway to offer total seclusion, Oakwood is a six bedroom home that has been created to exceed modern day needs and aspirations. Sensitively designed it blends perfectly with its surroundings and offers the ultimate in modern luxury accommodation.
Sunninghill, where Oakwood is situated, is nestled between the prestigious racecourse at Ascot and the world-renowned Wentworth golf course. It is surrounded by affluent estates, Arcadian villas and an ambrosial patchwork of open farmland and dense forest. The village offers a life of privilege in one of the most desirable parts of the country.
Just under an hour into central London and yet still maintaining its own unique charm, Sunninghill is bustling with bijou boutiques, elegant beauty salons, inspiring interiors emporia and decadent eateries. The short but well-heeled High Street is a microcosm of archetypal English village life.
Jonathan Cranley, Sales & Marketing Manager of award-winning house builder, Millgate says:
“Much as the Ideal Home Show is bristling with great notions for home improvements, this year why not save the fuss and just buy the ideal Show Home instead? We have exceeded even our own expectations in Oakwood using all the talent available to us to build an ‘Englishman’s castle’ complete with delightful grounds and the most beautiful pool.”
Holland Place show house Jonathan and his expert team at Millgate have spent over 25 years perfecting the ideal Show Home, working with established interior designers such as Alexander James Interiors to create not only properties dressed to impress but also those that function as warm, family homes.
Oakwood is being sold by Hamptons International and Regional director , Julian de la Poer Beresford, comments on this new country mansion that will be opening its doors this March:
“Millgate really are ‘best in class’ for new build country homes – and they are up against some very stiff competition in Surrey and Berkshire. Their passion to be “the best in British house building” is evident from the quality of work that they consistently produce. Hamptons International has sold several developments for Millgate and they always receive a highly positive response from our clients.
“Oakwood Place will provide a wonderful opportunity for one discerning buyer to acquire a beautiful home, set in a semi-rural location, with a garden that is rarely seen with surrounding new build property.”
“The average house price in England and Wales rose by 4.4 per cent in 2013. That is perhaps a bit lower than the impression many people have got from the press, so while prices are 11 per cent up on the trough of spring 2009, they are still 8 per cent below 2007 peak! With the stock of homes to sell having fallen by 9 per cent, as the market has picked up, demand by buyers, especially in the country, has risen by 28%, so this is an ideal time to be considering a move to Oakwood Place, South Ascot, before house prices start their increase in this sector.”
The house offers 7,638 sq ft of accommodation set over three storeys. You are greeted with a magnificent light-filled central galleried staircase on entering. Three large reception rooms are ideal for entertaining and the expansive kitchen/family room is the relaxed heart of the home.
Staff can be accommodated within the annexe which is located over the separate quadruple car garage. To the rear of the house is a luxurious pool lodge which complements the azure outdoor swimming pool.
