The same travertine stone floor continues into this space with also features wall panelling and a bespoke cloak cabinet with bevelled glazed doors. 

Glazed double doors lead into the dual-aspect drawing room. Wide plank solid timber flooring has been fitted in this room along with a fine marble fireplace with decorative slate inset and hearth and a dado rail. 

The dining room, also dual aspect, is connected to the patio and gardens by way of French doors, while the kitchen/breakfast room has a superb range of bespoke and hand-painted cabinets along with a built-in microwave, a steam oven, an additional oven, a six-ring gas hob and a concealed extractor in canopy. The worktop is made from polished illuminated granite with other highlights including an American-style fridge freezer, a Belfast-style double sink and an integrated dishwasher. 

An extensive breakfast island with a built-in wine rack and electric warming makes this room the perfect space in which to entertain guests this Christmas. 

Elsewhere in the home is the orangery, a stunning Hamptons-style area with triple aspect and floor-to-ceiling windows with delightful views overlooking the gardens. A magnificent granite fireplace is amongst the standout features in this room, which also has fitted seating, stone flooring and illuminated display shelving. French doors open out to the patio and gardens. 

Additional storage can be found in the utility room as well as a stainless steel double sink, a washing machine and dryer and a fridge and freezer. 

A delicious mahogany fireplace with cast iron and slate inset and a hearth fitted with gas coal effect fire take pride of place in the family room. 

Five of the six bedrooms can be found on the first level, with the master suite – an amazing New York-style loft – located on the second floor.

An indoor swimming pool with sauna and a games room/bar/cinema room are also included in the sale.
