This is a house that will divide opinion. On the face of it, a five-bedroom contemporary modernist property in rural Maidstone, Kent. But to others, it might just look like an industrial unit.
In fact, as I write this, the house has just been described to me as a ‘converted warehouse.’ It certainly isn’t that, this is a modern home (2009) built on the western shell of a disused reservoir and ‘retaining much of the structural integrity of the reservoir’. So a lot of space to play with.
Sat behind electronically operated security gates, the house is currently laid out on with five bedrooms and four en-suites on the ground floor, along with a 49 ft. open plan living area, a utility room, a separate cloakroom, a cinema room, a games room, a gymnasium with shower room, a wine room and a plant room.
The upper level has been designed as a further 40 ft. entertaining area with panoramic views via floor to ceiling windows. There’s also a sun terrace on three sides outside, along with ‘a generous parking area’ and a large integral double garage with electric doors.
Oh yes, you also get a patio, an inset heated swimming pool, a lawn areas overlooking a large fenced horse paddock and a ground source heat system which serves the main house.
Talking of technology, this place is an ‘A-Z’ of it, couple with a variety of high end finishes. To name just a few examples, you get the Lutron Homeworks 8 programmable wiring system (the ability to remotely control lighting, blinds, heating systems, security systems etc.), audio visual intercom, 16-camera CCTV, zoned underfloor heating, an integrated vacuum system, pre-wired media system, everything you need to kit out that cinema room, soundproofing for the current music room…the list goes on. All is available by negotiation.
Hopefully, the price will too, as the current one is a rather hefty £2,775,000. More images on the listing.
