The Forestry Road, Plaistow
A luxurious contemporary 5591 sq ft. home set in 21 acres with a 3-acre rainbow trout lake. Unique and sophisticated modern living in a parkland setting, a true one-of-a-kind with perfectly peaceful ambience.
Every inch of this remarkable home has been built to precision and designed with every conceivable thought given to optimising the fabulous natural setting whilst ensuring this super insulated and ecological structure is filled with the latest
technology for the modern family.
The striking terraces that wrap around the floor to ceiling windows and vaulted roof line, ensure the well-proportioned rooms are filled with light regardless of the time of year. Two home offices, a party room and home cinema room all compliment the double height reception room overlooking the
substantial patios and terraces.
A fully equipped music room with bar would suit any musician recording their next master piece or an adults den to entertain and relax. With a separate access and hidden infrastructure, this area is pre-prepped to convert into a self-contained suite for an au pair or guests.
The Master bedroom suite is simply stunning, with an ultra-high end suite, bespoke designed Morphosis Alpha Jacuzzi, a superb walk through shower His & Hers loos and luxury fittings
throughout. The remaining four double bedrooms all benefit from en-suite bathrooms, with two of these rooms providing excellent mezzanine levels within to maximise the use of space.
A glass balustrade runs the length of the wrap around balconies which gives elevated views and relaxation areas over the garden, lake and woodland beyond. Throughout this very
special home are an abundance of modern technologies, from ground source underfloor heating and fully automated lighting, heating and external blinds in addition to the fully networked
CAT7 cabling to ensure all rooms and occupants can be connected to the net and indeed the integral sound system available throughout the house.
The construction and design of the house means maintenance is kept extremely low and as there are no fossil fuels whatsoever, the running costs are surprisingly low.
THE GARDENS & GROUNDS
The current owners have created the extensively landscaped grounds that offer delightful privacy all set within a parkland setting with the fullest attention to detail. The gardens are beautifully arranged and manicured and, when standing on
the substantial rear terrace, overlook the rainbow trout lake with jetty, wild flower meadow, ancient bluebell woodland and grounds suitable for paddocks.
Further to the above youll find over 4800 sq. ft of ancillary buildings comprised of a workshop, triple bay garage, helicopter hangar, barn and wine cellar. In addition, a one bedroom summer house can be used as staff quarters or studio with its
own services and private sunken patio. Discreetly tucked away and screened from view of the house is an excellent tennis court perfect for practice or games with family and friends.
