Contemporary Barn Living Which Epitomises Luxury
14th Mar 2014
Situated in the leafy village of Chorleywood, these well-planned, contemporary detached houses, built by leading developer Hill, offer potential home owners the opportunity to indulge in luxurious and spacious living.
However, there are only two properties still available on the development - the Oxhey and Leavesden - so buyers will need to move quickly if they want to own a part of this unique scheme!
Perfectly placed among the surrounding countryside, these modern homes are an excellent example of creative and sustainable design. Innovative and luxurious, they are built to Level 4 of the Code for Sustainable Homes. With this type of energy efficiency, each property benefits from high levels of insulation, thermally efficient windows, and photovoltaic roof panels which provide renewable energy that can be used by the home owner or alternatively sold back to the national grid.
Designed for contemporary living, each home is complete with large feature windows, extensive open-plan living spaces, generous kitchen/breakfast rooms, and spacious bedrooms. Bathed in natural light, the interiors are warm and welcoming and consist of the finest fixtures and fittings.
Tony Woodman, Sales Director at Hill, commented: “These are exceptional homes which allow you to completely retreat from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, while still being 30 minutes from central London. The peaceful and relaxing countryside setting combined with the contemporary and stylish interior makes Latimer Chase utterly unique and the levels of interest we have seen is evidence of its far reaching appeal.”
Each property has been elegantly crafted and traditionally constructed. Exterior treatments see a combination of split-face limestone, buff and red facing bricks, cedar cladding, multi clay red tiles, and slate, while each standalone garage is finished with an innovative green roof - essentially a ‘living roof’ that is partially or completely covered with greenery.
Internally, impressive finishes are clearly evident. The stylish bespoke German kitchens are complete with white high gloss cabinets, muted wood tones, solid composite worktops, and sleek energy efficient VZUG and Siemens appliances.
Each kitchen has a separate utility room complete with a Siemens washing machine and tumble dryer, a stainless steel sink with chrome mixer tap, and a concealed boiler.
The bathrooms and en-suites continue the chic style that is discernable throughout, and feature Duravit Starck 3 sanitaryware, HansGrohe mixer taps and showers, porcelain ceramic wall and floor tiles, and heated chrome towel rails.
Ultimately, the homes have been designed to emanate a calm and tranquil environment, with aesthetics being of great importance. Every space has been designed to achieve a contemporary barn-style interior - a factor which is highlighted through the use of high quality internal timber doors, beautiful engineered oak flooring, and an elegant bespoke staircase.
The location of Latimer Chase adds to its established appeal. Situated in Chorleywood - a pretty village in the Chilterns - residents have access to a wide selection of sports clubs, a local golf course and various charming pubs. Ideally located, the scheme sits in a quiet, semi-rural area which is close to excellent transport links, making it popular for London-based professionals who are able to get into the Capital via train in 30 minutes.
With its proximity to entertainment and community facilities, as well as outstanding local schools, such as St Clement Danes, Latimer Chase is perfectly suited to family living.
The Oxhey is available for £1,700,000 and the Leavesden is for sale for £1,950,000.
