The Lynch is a modern five bedroom house which has been built to an exceptionally high specification to provide an unrivalled level of luxury. The property offers approximately 6,400sq ft of living space, plus a studio apartment situated above the garage. The south-facing property is wonderfully spacious and light, with high ceilings and large windows in all of the rooms.
The front door opens into a welcoming reception hall which leads to the main reception rooms. To the right is a quadruple-aspect octagonal drawing room with a Chesney fireplace with a marble mantelpiece providing a focal point, and marble windowsills. There is a wet room to the left of the entrance hall, with a very large walk-in rain shower, fully tiled in limestone and fittings made by Villeroy and Boch. The sitting room, adjacent to the drawing room, is a bright, south-facing room with French doors leading out to a terrace.
The stylish kitchen/breakfast room is to the rear of the house, with a marble floor, granite windowsills, bespoke hand built Mark Butterfield units and granite worktops. The kitchen features state of the art appliances including a sub-zero fridge freezer, two Gaggenau dishwashers, a Gaggenau coffee machine, Miele steam oven and microwave, extractor fan, a Mercury Range cooker, Kohlar sinks and Dornbracht taps. There is also a large island with granite worktops. The kitchen leads through to a dual-aspect garden room with a contemporary Scan wood burner and granite hearth, a bespoke orangery-style hardwood roof and bifolding doors leading out to the garden. Far-reaching views towards Wellington Monument and the Blackdown Hills can be enjoyed from this room.
Also found to the rear of the house is a magnificent 35x16-foot dining room with a bespoke glass lantern ceiling, granite window sills and an ornate art nouveau cast iron fireplace with a granite hearth. Accessed from the dining room is a separate utility room, with bespoke hand-built maple units and Carrara marble work surfaces, plus a butler’s pantry with a Kohlar sink and Dornbracht taps, and a full size built-in refrigerator and freezer.
Four further reception rooms complete the ground floor: a TV room, music room, home cinema and a study with bifold doors that can be used to extend the dining room. The TV room is a bright and spacious triple-aspect room, which leads to the semi-octagonal music room with a wooden vaulted ceiling. Accessed from the TV room, the purpose-built cinema room has tiered seating for ten people, a commercial Simm 2 projector, Monitor audio speakers, Pioneer AV equipment and mood lighting.
On the first floor are five double bedrooms, two with en suite facilities, and with lovely views and bespoke fitted wardrobes. The master suite is an octagonal quadruple-aspect room with marvellous far-reaching views to Wellington Monument and the Blackdown Hills. This room has the benefit of a full marble bathroom with a sunken egg-shaped bath, his and hers basins, a large walk-in rain shower with wall jets and Villeroy and Bosch fittings with Hansgrohe taps. The master suite also has a bespoke dressing room with a heated marble floor. A bespoke, limestone family bathroom completes the first floor, with a hexagonal semi sunken bath with a heated TV screen set within the wall, a large walk-in shower with wall jets and Villeroy and Bosch fittings with Handsgrohe taps.
The property is approached via a long private driveway which leads to a double garage and a gravelled drive providing ample parking space for numerous vehicles. Above the double garage is a studio apartment with a kitchenette and an adjoining shower room. This has previously been used for a housekeeper/nanny but offers the potential for a variety of uses.
The large gardens at The Lynch have been thoughtfully designed to create a wonderful easy to maintain space, offering a high degree of privacy. The gardens are mainly laid to lawn with a variety of attractive shrubs and trees within landscaped borders, plus areas of woodland to the north and south of the house. There is a very large pond with a waterfall within the gardens and a paved terrace provides an ideal space for al fresco dining and entertaining. Exquisite views can be enjoyed from here of the surrounding landscape towards Blackdown Hills and Wellington Monument beyond. Within the gardens there is also a black swimming pool measuring 11m x 5m, on a raised terrace, with a summer house overlooking the pool.
