The clean, elegant lines typical of the work of award-winning architects Sheppard and Rout are evident throughout this superbly designed home.
From the grey stone pillars at the entrance of the property through to the large picture windows and doors opening the house to its sublime site, there is everything that needs to be here and, more importantly, nothing that doesn’t.
The combination of an unerring eye for detail, faultless execution of the design and the well-proportioned, interconnecting spaces will make this contemporary property just as desirable in 20 years as it is today.
Making the most of its lakeside site in Clearwater Resort, this home offers a series of secluded and sheltered outdoor living spaces surrounded by professionally landscaped grounds.
Views from the living, kitchen and dining areas and the bedrooms have been planned for maximum impact and the overall effect is rather like living on a private country estate.
The designer kitchen offers good work spaces and a large amount of storage including a floor to ceiling pantry and deep pot and platter drawers.
Like all good kitchens should, this one happily has access to a wine cellar conveniently placed off the hallway to restock guests and within easy reach for whoever got landed with cooking duty.
That this wine cellar also has separate access to provide a very useful and secure car-park for the golf cart is an undoubted bonus.
To the rear of this kitchen is a well-designed office with direct access, through French doors, to a private paved courtyard.
French doors are also off the living areas, opening the rooms to a pergola covered courtyard which effectively doubles the already spacious entertaining areas in the Spring and Summer.
Detailing such as the deeply pitched ceiling add to the feeling of light and spaciousness in this home which was designed as much for family living as it was for entertaining and the home's largely neutral palette and well placed expanses of wall provide the perfect backdrop for art.
The first of the four double bedrooms is on the ground floor and enjoys a private courtyard and a large en-suite.
Also on the ground floor is internal access to the double garaging, a guest bathroom and a large fully-fitted laundry.
Upstairs are a further three double bedrooms, two of which are serviced by a modern white tiled bathroom while the third has its own en-suite, a fully fitted walk in wardrobe and views across Clearwater Resort and the lake.
With heat pumps, a gas fire, full insulation and double-glazing, along with the home’s west-facing aspect, this an energy efficient and comfortable home year round.
Surrounded by specimen trees, mature flowering shrubs kept in line with clipped buxus and a lawn that goes down to the lake’s edge, this is a place of absolute serenity.
Here you’ll find all the practical features you need for good living packaged within an outstanding design that more than meets the high bar set by neighbouring houses.
