Multimillion Off Market Properties Viewed recently

  • 26th January 2018

Off Market Property viewings.
Chiltern Relocation often gets the opportunity to view properties before they come to the open market and some of these houses will never reach estate agents windows. We were lucky enough to enjoy two very different propositions recently from a riverside character manor house to a new build in Beaconsfield with all the latest in ‘mod con’s’. So what can a cool £5 to £6million buy you?

Cookham
Our riverside property was tucked away down a private road and with large gardens backing onto a towpath. However it was just a stone’s throw from a wonderful riverside pub and the village with views over the church. The house dated back some 300 years and we fell in love with all the period features. It felt like we were entering a country house hotel with open fire and reception room overlooking the gardens. The two upper floors had four very generous bedrooms on each floor (with en-suites) and one room enjoyed a small lounge area with wonderful period windows overlooking the river. Outside there was an outdoor pool, a dining parterre and access to a private mooring.

Over in Beaconsfield
We looked forward to seeing what the latest trends were not only in architecture but also in interior design. Despite the central location the house was set back from the road with ample driveway. On entering a feeling on luxury oozed but it wasn’t flamboyant. Again the hallway was grand and welcoming with an open fire. The ground floor flowed with opportunities to enter the cinema room, the opulent dining room or the drawing room (complete with bar). However we headed towards the large open plan kitchen with separate eating and relaxing areas. One trend that we have noticed with new builds is the addition of a wine room. Wine cellars are no longer in fashion – it is now wine rooms. In this case the room sat at the back of the kitchen behind glass doors. The climate controlled room had a wooden and mirrored ceiling to add depth and opulence and a couple of chairs to fully enjoy the wine drinking experience.
