A very modern house, but with a cheeky nod back to early 20th century modernism too. That’s the Downscroft contemporary modernist property in Cheam, Surrey.
There is definitely a touch of Le Corbusier here, not to mention a bit of deco. But this isn’t some kind of retro throwback. Downscroft is very much a 21st century property.
It’s also a substantial build, offering 7,500 sq. ft. of space over three floors, with no shortage of high-end finishing and modern-day technology within. That includes walnut flooring, solar panel tubes, a ground source heat pump, air ventilation with the Allergy Plus system, partial air cooling, Lutron lighting, under floor heating throughout and a home automation system.
Of course, you can’t miss the cantilevered staircase too, which is a stunning focal point within the house.
As for space within, where do we start? Well, we will start at the entrance, which leads to a reception hall, drawing room, dining room, study, family room, sitting room, kitchen / breakfast area, laundry room, three cloakrooms, a rear hall, a media and games room and a gym on the ground.
Head up that fine staircase and you’ll find a galleried landing with library space, the principal bedroom suite with dressing room, en-suite bathroom and two terraces, four additional double bedrooms, two further en-suites and a family bathroom.
There is also some integrated underground garaging and additional store rooms too.
Outside you will find a security gate with entry phone system, a parking area (heated for cold days)and in terms of landscaping, granite pathways, terraces, trees, lawn, three courtyards, a heated pool (with pool house) and should you be socialising, Lutron-controlled external lighting and speakers. 0.52 acres in total.
Price is on application, should you fancy it.
