A contemporary classic.

In one of the finest locations within the St George's Hill estate and with simply wonderful views of the golf course, a stunning new house of the very highest standard.

SCd were appointed by Igloo Developments (www.igloodevelopments.com) to design and detail this dramatic family residence in a period style. Through extensive discussions with the client, a house that reflects the elegance of the Queen Anne style was developed. The front elevation facing the main street has been developed to be as faithful a reproduction as is possible, by contrast the rear facade seeks to maximise the views across the famous St. Georges Golf Club through the use of extensive glass sliding screens constructed in Switzerland.

Accommodation is spread across four floors providing luxury levels of accommodation and finish. The sports wing houses a multi function gymnasium with a sauna and jacuzzi immediately adjacent. The centre piece to this area is a beautiful swimming pool with a large lantern window flooding the pool with natural daylight and glazed screens which open onto the main terrace and garden.  The day room at the rear which includes the kitchen, casual dining and seating area, is the main heart to the ground floor with its extensive views and glazed wall which opens out onto a large terrace paved in Italian ceramic tiles which lead down onto the landscaped grounds. The house includes a separate two bedroom staff apartment and garaged space for five cars are provided in to separate areas with the house.

Modern AV technology has been adopted throughout the house and is controlled and monitored by a BMS system that can be accessed from any point around the world. Highest standards for air tightness are also being achieved, which combined with the use of MVHR and high levels of thermal insulation, create a house that is leading the way in this house class.
