The Property:

The Cedars is a substantial family home of exceptional quality set within beautifully maintained private landscaped gardens. No expense has been spared in the total refurbishment of this well constructed property with solid concrete flooring to all three floors. The spacious accommodation is principally arranged over two floors only with a games room and gym on the third. The entire accommodation is extremely well laid out with all the main reception rooms approached off the grand reception hall one of which leads to a stunning Orangery built by Westbury Conservatories Ltd.

The Cedars is set within a small private development (formerly the rented residence of General Eisenhower during World War II) which has exceptional grounds comprising approximately 4.72 acres with only four other substantial detached houses one of which benefits from a separate indoor swimming pool complex. The development which is extremely secure benefits from 24 hour security which is manned at the entrance off Warren Road.

The Cedars which is of ambassadorial quality is within its own grounds of approximately 1.25 acres and comprises of 11,251 sq ft (1,045sq m) of built up area which includes a triple garage with a self contained two bedroom staff flat in addition to the living room, kitchen and bathroom. The sweeping circular driveway offers ample forecourt parking around a central lawn with a gazebo and fountain allowing for parking for at least 20 cars or so. The property fronts onto the exclusive Coombe Hill Golf Course offering that countrified leafy aspect with Westerly views to the rear. The private landscaped gardens of The Cedars offer many outside entertaining areas in which to enjoy a quiet moment including a large terrace adjoining an outside covered kitchen for that alfresco dining event. A rare feature to be found is the submersible hot tub which appears from a retractable decked terrace at the press of a button.

The house itself provides a superb balance between entertaining and family accommodation including:

The ground floor offers a double aspect formal Drawing Room with French doors leading to the rear garden and terrace, Formal Dining Room (currently used as another living room with a preparation area between this room and the kitchen), Home Cinema/media Room, a private well balanced Study with an ensuite cloakroom, Orangery with a separate living area and dining area with a two way feature fireplace, a beautiful and well equipped Kitchen/Dining Room, Staff Kitchen/Utility Room and further laundry room, Dog Room, and Guest Cloakroom.

To the first floor the Master Bedroom Suite spans almost the entire rear of the house with spectacular views of the gardens. This comprises of the sleeping area with a private living room featuring a fireplace and French Doors to a decked terrace, two walk in dressing rooms, and a boutique bathroom with walk in shower. In addition to this are four further bedrooms all with ensuite bathrooms and a further family room with French Doors leading to the front balcony. Off one of the bedrooms is a separate door leading to a self contained Nanny/guest annexe which can also be approached from the side of the house. Most of the accommodation benefits from air conditioning and the stair well benefits from a central glass dome with electrically operated windows which sheds light throughout the heart of the house.
