FOR ILLUSTRATIVE PURPOSES ONLY - NOT TO SCALE
Originally constructed in 1951 and occupying a prime plot, extending to approximately a third of an acre overlooking the golf course. The distinct rear elevation has been created by the local highly regarded architect, Simon Foote, known for creating many of the high specification and bespoke homes within the area, including those on the Measham Road. The property has become a vision for the current vendor to create a substantial house blending contemporary themes with light, space and modern technology, including CAT6 cabling for high speed media to most rooms, facilitating seamless streaming of video and music content across the house.
The property has been developed to maximise the exceptional views from the living accommodation. The bespoke first floor balcony dominates and connects the east & west wings on the south-facing elevation overlooking private gardens and Willesley Park Golf Club. Consequently The Brindles extends to over 4,000 square feet with large open-plan living space including the Holme Tree luxury kitchen and under-floor heating. Elsewhere a combination of both contemporary and original fixtures and fittings remain including the re-introduction of solid oak parquet flooring, the Art Deco pink marble fireplace and Vitrolite glass panels within the shower room.
