Elegant yet understated home with central elliptical space lit from above

This sophisticated modern design classical home of 10,000 sq ft has been designed to create a beautiful home with luxury style that makes the most of its site. The bespoke dwelling is intended to appear elegant yet understated from the roadside. A lot of accommodation has been hidden behind the simple fa├žade meaning the house has quite a deep plan. The house had been laid out so that the accommodation radiates from the central helical staircase, which is lit from above allowing light to penetrate deep into the core of the house.

The house is entered through a circular hallway with the main spine taking you to the central elliptical space, with the same axis continuing to provide access to the gardens beyond.
 
The southern side of the property, to the left of the main axis, houses the kitchen/dining/living areas, which open onto a sheltered suntrap courtyard. From here there are also views through to the garden on the west.

At right angles to the main axis, radiating from the helical staircase is a secondary axis leading to a second rear staircase and other ancillary accommodation.
 
At first floor level, a substantial master bedroom suite links from the front to the back of the dwelling, east to west. It includes his and hers dressing and en-suite areas. In addition to this there are another four bedrooms, all with adjoining dressing rooms and en-suites, with a feature circular guest bedroom over the front vestibule.

To the garden side, a classical covered arcade provides shelter for garden entertaining, barbecuing etc. This also provides access to the main terrace area that runs the full length of the west elevation of the house. Six metre wide steps, on the main axis from the front door, lead to the sunken garden.
