An outstanding, newly built contemporary home of exceptional style and quality in a beautiful setting and 4.5 acres of private grounds and woodland
Tunley Court is a truly exceptional property, designed to nestle into the wooded background and blend with the landscape whilst standing proud as a modern masterpiece of contemporary architecture. JFB are the building company responsible for the construction, one of the largest privately owned companies in the area, renowned for their highly skilled workforce covering every aspect of a build. The 4.5 acre plot that Tunley Court stands on is very beautiful and the house has been designed to take full advantage of the very special views across its own land. On entering the property across a distinctive walkway, the first impression is of an incredibly light and bright space with the eye drawn across the main reception room to the wide bi-folding doors that open up to the balcony and the sweeping views across its gently undulating grounds. This main living space includes a beautiful fitted kitchen by Abatalia, an independent company specialising in Italian furniture and luxury fittings. An extensive range of stylish units provide exceptional storage, the work surfaces are an elegant silestone and a full range of appliances include 2 fridge freezers, twin gas hobs, 2 dishwashers, a single oven plus compact oven with microwave, warming drawer and twin gas hobs. This room is a fantastic living space and also to the west side of the house is a large sitting room with feature fireplace and to the east a cinema room or further reception ensuring that a family has private, quiet space too. Tunley Court has without doubt got a wow factor about it as well as an exceptional finish and the architects and builders have ensured that the house functions well for semi-rural living and as such, there is a large boot room, cloakroom and utility room. The design of the house is very much about blending the internal and external space and the large balcony that sweeps out from the living space via bi-folding doors, provides the perfect space for al fresco dining or for simply enjoying the outstanding views and peacefulness of the hamlet of Tunley as does the ground floor terrace that the bedrooms open out on to.
The building company of Tunley Court are renowned for their joinery, having a workshop on site and as such, throughout the house, the workmanship in this quarter is clear to see. The staircase leading down to the garden level is elegant and timeless and descends to a wonderful open space with a large study/reading area opening out to the terrace. The master bedroom is an impressive space with bi-folding doors to the paved terrace and a stunning en-suite bathroom. Three other bedrooms also have access to the terrace and the whole feel of this floor, with the beautifully appointed bathrooms is one of luxury and style. Once again, the architects and builders have ensured that the house works as a home and there is a large laundry and a plant room neatly housing the cabling and heat source pumps.
Tunley Court is approached off a picturesque wooded lane in a hamlet that is beautiful throughout the seasons. Electric double gates open up to a wide driveway and the double garage and workshop. The property stands well back from the quiet wooded lane and is surrounded on all sides by its grounds, these being the private driveway to the front, access to the lawn and field from each side of the house, a quiet and more shaded area underneath the walkway with outside open fireplace and to the rear, a truly outstanding space arranged as gardens, terracing, colourful planting and mature border planting. The gardens flow into the field and a ha ha ensures the livestock remain away from the formal lawn and the whole plot enjoys a wonderful feeling of privacy being edged by a wooded backdrop. Also within the grounds is a delightful shepherds hut with en-suite and kitchenette, electric water and drainage, a super addition to the grounds and a charming space for children, an outside office or for an overflow of guests.
The lower access is for agricultural purposes only and opens up to the stable block and on to the field.
