Turning up the entertainment barometer, this house was designed and built to host intimate soirees as well as lavish parties – and has already been tested with occasions catered for up to 100 guests.

The living room exudes dignity and is testament to the home’s cultured style. Gleaming solid oak floors – a notable feature of this main level – are warmed with radiant heat through the geothermal heating system and act as a base upon which to showcase individual furniture items or intricately woven rugs. Before- and after-dinner drinks can be served to guests enjoying the gas fireplace and views across the landscaped gardens.

Placed between the kitchen and the living room, the stately dining room will easily hold formal gatherings in grand style. Bespoke ceiling treatments highlighting deep set coffered detailing and a exquisite chandelier create an immediate sense of grandeur, while french doors open to an expansive rear patio. A sound system that runs throughout the house dictates the mood and controls the party atmosphere.

The family room is a place to gather for casual conversation and banter. Positioned off the kitchen, this open-concept room coordinates its style with the rest of the house displaying a statement fireplace that is gas lit but burns real wood logs, and detailed millwork. Enjoy a meal prepared in the adjoining kitchen and transfer to this room to catch up on news and relish time spent with your closest friends.

Fast forward the fun factor with a visit to the lower level where a full bar overlooks the recreation area – currently accommodating a full-size pool table – and a temperature-controlled wine cellar. Bound to please any sommelier, this is home for more than 400 bottles and features LED light strips to present featured selections, and a tasting table. The home theatre with its large format screen serves to recreate the excitement and intensity of a cinema experience, providing a fitting end to an evening or a grand venue to host the big game.

Two beautifully detailed guest bedrooms – one with a private ensuite bathroom – are themselves a bolster to stylish comfort with a ThermaSol steam shower, Hansgrohe fixtures, Kohler sinks and toilets, and limestone counters. These will ensure guests may need more than a little persuading to ever leave.

The outdoor entertaining arenas have been as meticulously thought out as the interior. A centrepiece fire pit with semi-circular stone seating is a natural venue for evening get-togethers, while the upper and lower patios offer bucolic views across the beautifully choreographed gardens.
