Vendors' thoughts: "Tunley Court was purchased in June 2016 for us to create a stunning family home for me, my wife and four children, who were attending the renowned Dean Close co-educational school. The land is great for the children to roam, play and hide in the woods and the terrace and garden being south facing is so lovely for us to relax in. It is so lovely to sit in the house or on the terrace and watch the wonderful wildlife and birds that come into the grounds and to walk through the adjacent woods down to the local pub."
In a nutshell: Peace, tranquility and privacy.
Tunley Court is the perfect example of craftmanship, design and setting fusing beautifully together to create an exceptional home with carefully thought out living spaces and delightful gardens and grounds.
The house works superbly for everyday living and equally for entertaining and hosting family and friends. Careful thought and attention has been put in to creating living spaces which flow seamlessly and take in the sensational views across the landscaped garden, blending the indoors seamlessly with the gardens and grounds.
The architects and designers have ensured that the house works as a home. The main entrance to the house is on the first floor. The boot room is ideal for muddy wellies after a long country walk and provides ample storage for all the family kit!
Walking through to the kitchen/ dining room, one is immediately struck by the exceptional feeling of space with bi-folding doors which bathe the room in natural light. This is clearly the heart of the house and a wonderful space in which to catch up over morning coffee or cook up a feast for dinner with friends.
The bespoke Kali kitchen, by Arredo 3 Cucine, provides ample stylish and discreet storage with silestone work surfaces and a full range of appliances which include two fridge freezers, twin gas hobs, two dishwashers, a single oven plus compact oven with microwave, warming drawer and twin gas hobs. A pantry comes in handy for further kitchen storage.
The sitting room has been superbly laid out to provide both a cosy area in front of the fireplace, ideal for unwinding with a good book, and a relaxing spot over looking the gardens and woodland.
A cinema room is great for sports and movie nights and can equally be used as a further sitting/ play room.
The staircase leads down to the garden level and opens onto a spacious hallway which connects all the bedrooms. The master bedroom with stunning en suite bathroom has bi-folding doors leading to the terrace. A further bedroom with en suite bathroom it located at the opposite end of the hall. There are four further bedrooms and two bathrooms. All the rooms have been carefully laid out to provide comfort and ample storage.
There is also a large laundry and a plant room neatly housing the cabling and heat source pumps on the ground floor.
A shepherd’s hut nestled to the side of the house with kitchenette and shower room provides further accommodation for guests and could equally work well as a stylish home office or gym.
Outside the garden is predominantly laid to lawn which rolls down into the connecting field and is surrounded by beautiful woodland. The decking and terrace are ideal for al fresco dining in the warmer months and with the bi-folding doors on both the garden and first floors there is a seamless transition from indoor to outdoor living.
There is a double carport and a workshop to the front of the house and the gated driveway offers plenty of parking.
