PRODUCTS USED: Havwoods Bespoke
Seven bedrooms, a cinema, gym, spa and sauna, as well as an entire entertainment suite with a games rooms and bowling alley come together to make a truly desirable property anywhere. Add two separate staff properties, a pool complex complete with outdoor kitchen, and a private five-hole golf course; package it in 11.5 landscaped acres with stunning views and locate the entire thing less than half an hour from the centre of London and you have something quite unique and truly sensational.
But Grovelands isn’t just about an estate agent’s impressive summary, it’s about style on a grand scale. Granted, it is over 16,500 sq ft, but more importantly it’s 16,500 sq ft of supremely considered luxury: the staircase and reception hall could feature in a modern day Busby Berkeley routine, but the focus is on the artwork not the dimensions; the master bedroom suite enjoys multiple dressing rooms and a bathroom which is over 30 feet wide, but the eye is captured by the styling not the size.
The interior designs called for a black plank to be used throughout much of the property, with a complex geometrical pattern in the same wood to create interest in the entrance hall. Now, this pattern would be a task for Havwoods Bespoke, to produce off-site and supply in easy to fit panels, but at the time the entire flooring was a special order. Venture Plank Oak Citadel would produce a very similar look, as would Venture Plank Oak Conquest or Europlank Oak Midnight.
