Located on Surrey’s premier Mayfield Road and a short walk from Weybridge High Street sits Alderbrook House, an exceptional red brick 6,443 sq ft, six bedroom family home on a peaceful section of the River Wey with its own private back garden boat mooring.
Featuring sweeping views over the treetops of Weybridge the award winning property, built and designed by Newcourt Residential, provides a feeling akin to living in your own luxury treehouse and is available to purchase via Waterview for £4,500,000.
Built eight years ago, Alderbrook House scooped the 2015 Best Interiors Gold badge by WhatHouse? for its well thought out design that takes much of its inspiration from the beauty in the nature surrounding it.
The trees, the river and the greenery were all influences on the colour palettes and lighting, along with a nod to quintessentially British heritage that is picked up in the ornate cornicing, parquet flooring, hand-finished oak doors and real timber-sashed windows throughout the house.
The accommodation is made up of an impressive entrance hall which leads to an 840 sq ft open plan kitchen/dining room with family room.
The integrated kitchen features a central island with handle-less joinery, wood cabinets and oversized floor tiles. Miele appliances are present throughout including the oven, steaming oven, induction hob, warm plate drawers and boiling water tap.
The extensive space benefits from full width bifold doors to a terrace/entertaining area which overlooks the garden and contributes to an expansive indoor/outdoor atmosphere, ideal for summer barbeques, nature lovers and keeping an eye on playful children. Off the kitchen there is a utility room with side access.
Also on the ground floor is a second living room with a fireplace (which can be used as a more formal space), guest cloakroom and integrated garage/plant room.
An exquisite helical open turned staircase takes centre stage in the property, rising through all the floors with an oak handrail, ochre runner, wood panelled walls and a sensational seven-metre bespoke lighting feature which represents an old tree trunk with flowers and extending branches elegantly cascading through the central staircase.
On the first floor the huge principal suite offers whimsical river views from a Juliette balcony with a concealed dressing area and a luxurious en-suite featuring a centralised bathtub, dual sink, and spacious walk-in shower.
All bathrooms are clad in marble with top-of-the-range Villeroy & Boch sanitaryware, Hans Grohe brassware and glamorous lighting. On this level there are two further luxury suites with dressing rooms and en-suite, laundry room and an open plan study.
On the top floor there are three further double bedrooms (one with en-suite), family bathroom and a large games room/media room which is perhaps the home’s ‘pièce de résistance’.
The generously sized room features a bar area, huge space for a family sized couch and games such as a pool table or table football and a floor-to-ceiling glass wall leading onto a covered balcony, built into the eaves, providing sweeping views across the tree tops and river.
To the front of the house there are bespoke wrought iron gates with a gated driveway and the rear garden incorporates two large terraces, summer house/home office, jacuzzi and a decked riverside entertaining space and mooring with private island opposite.
The leafy suburbs of Surrey provide the perfect plot for post pandemic family living, with many buyers expressly seeking homes with outdoor space, often preferring to entertain at home rather than going out. Alderbrook House’s own boat mooring ensures that homeowners looking to escape the noise are not limited to just their back garden.
Soren Ravaux, Director at Waterview told LondonLovesProperty.com, “If you are looking for expansive family accommodation with both serene surroundings and lots of space for kids to adventure and run around, then look no further.
“Alderbrook House is reminiscent of a New York apartment combined with the softness of an English country home; it presents an exciting opportunity for a discerning buyer to have the best of both worlds.
“The home features luxury, comfort and elegant design including Versailles Parisian oak flooring, ornate cornicing and book-matched marble in the bathrooms.”
Ravaux added, “Alderbrook House’s identity was heavily influenced by nature to emphasise the property’s surroundings. The open-plan kitchen/family room is very special, being able to have the bi-fold doors completely open and get the sense of inside outside space as one.
“The delicate noise of the river and the tranquillity of the location make it a hidden sanctuary in the middle of Weybridge.”
