The ability to add creativity, practicality and personality to a property is very appealing. A bespoke design on a grand scale means you can fashion your living space to suit your every need, but even small touches of individuality in furniture or decoration, for example, can make your home stand out from the crowd.

It’s worth bearing in mind though that if you are planning a facelift in order to sell, don’t over-personalise the design as you may put off potential buyers who don’t happen to share your tastes.

This property promotes contemporary, family living and includes many high specification fittings. The five bedrooms all with en suite bathrooms, include two with high-apex glazed windows overlooking the gardens.
