New Build on Hyde Park Estate
Starting life as a 1,300 square foot gatehouse over two floors to a private mews, the Hyde Park property was transformed into a newly built four level 2,700 square foot private residence combining a traditional exterior with a contemporary state-of-the-art interior. The stucco facade and sash windows with featured leaded roof and dormers belie the clean lines of the property interior. Bespoke stairs and handmade kitchen add highlights to the fully integrated home automation system and slick resin floors.
The entire first floor contains the master bedroom with ample bespoke joinery and a generous en-suite with Vola sanitary ware and Italian stone sink. On the top floor there are two more double bedrooms with bathroom. This property sits beautifully within its surroundings whilst reflecting the demands of modern life.
State-of-the-Art Interior Finishes
Internally, the property benefits from: underfloor heating, additional heating and cooling, feature ribbon fireplaces, feature stairs and windows as well as CAT7 wiring and Lutron lighting, home audio, blind, security and networking. It is safe to say that the property has been future proofed to the fullest extent possible. Wide board oak and resin floors, Italian stone bathrooms, ceiling and door architrave shadow gap detailing all add up to a crisp contemporary property interior.
Due to the sensitive nature of this site, sitting amongst the listed buildings of the Hyde Park estate, there was close cooperation with regard to the planning application, with the local council, conservation officer and heritage associations. Every effort was made to design a building that was neither a pastiche nor overbearing; the result is a modern building set in a historical location that satisfied both the planners and the client.
