Built in 2012 by the current owners, Elmsdown is of local Cotswold stone construction with a reproduction stone tiled roof. Underfloor heating has been installed on both floors and each room can be independently thermostatically controlled. The house has full audio-visual wiring, a zone controlled SceneStyle mood lighting system, a central vacuum system, a linked smoke/heat alarm system and an intruder alarm system. The flooring throughout the house is finished in either Portuguese limestone floor tiles or engineered European oak boards, and the doors throughout are all finished in oak. All the bathrooms are meticulously finished with limestone wall and floor tiles and fitted with Duravit and Hans Grohe sanitary ware.
Elmsdown is entered into through an elegant galleried entrance hall. A bespoke oak split staircase leading up to the first floor makes a real statement and gives the first glimpse of what this impressive house has to offer. From the entrance hall the modern kitchen/breakfast room is accessed and this forms the heart of the house. The sleek kitchen is by Rennie Mackintosh and has an excellent range of high gloss white cabinets finished with black quartz work tops and upstands along with stainless steel kick boards and walnut veneer features. There is a double stainless steel sink with filtered water tap and a separate Zip Hydro Tap. Integral appliances comprise two ovens with grills, steam oven, microwave, warming drawers and coffee station all by Siemens, an integral Bosch dishwasher and fridge, freezer, and a wine fridge by Liebherr. A bespoke central island unit makes a real feature of the kitchen with walnut veneer cabinets and a quartz work top with six burner Siemens gas hob inset and extraction above.
A door from the kitchen leads to the utility room which continues with the same style cabinets as the kitchen with under cabinet lighting, an inset stainless steel sink and space and plumbing for a washing machine and tumble dryer. A cloakroom/wet room is located off the utility room and there are two external doors, one leading out to the rear kitchen garden and the other to a screened recycling store at the front of the property.
