18 Nov All I want for Christmas is September House
In 1946 when Don Gardner first published the song ‘All I want for Christmas is my two front
teeth’ he could never have guessed that almost 70 years later this harmless little jingle would become a festive anthem.
Now there isn’t a child alive in the UK who actually wants front teeth for Christmas – they want Modern Warfare Call of Duty 3, a new Blackberry and an iPad. But what about the grown ups? It becomes somewhat futile buying presents for many of this generation. A new woolly jumper does not have the same excitement level that it did in the 70’s and although Cath Kidston is working hard to make oven gloves sexy, we don’t really want them wrapped up and under the tree on Christmas day.
So what do adults really want? We actually secretly aspire to a very sleek Aston Martin, a Tiffany diamond bracelet or perhaps a new house, ready to move into?
Well let us introduce you to September House – built, furnished and ready to move into for Christmas Day. And as an extra special gift a free membership to the world famous Wentworth Golf Club is being included in the price! *
This really is the most incredible house, built on the Wentworth Estate, in Surrey. It has been decorated and furnished by the fabulous designer Alexander James Interiors who worked with the construction team to ensure that September House would stand out above all others.
From the moment you pass through the electric gates there is a feeling of superior quality about this house. The initial budget of £60,000 for the garden was completely blown and the developer decided that the garden needed to be as fabulous as the inside.
The impressive front double door has a fabulously welcoming feel, opening onto a spacious entrance hall with a sweeping staircase fit for a royal. This triple height hall could house the ubiquitous Christmas Norwegian spruce and there is plenty of space for an awful lot of presents. The main electric controls are operated from the hall, giving you the option of turning on lights around the house and perhaps loading the internal sound system with some Christmas carols from the moment you walk in the door.
The four receptions rooms lead off from the grand hall giving a serene feeling of openness about the property. From here you can head into the dining room, sitting room, study or, like most families just head straight into the kitchen.
This room is guaranteed to be the focal hub of this family home and on Christmas Day there would be hours of fun and entertainment in this part of the house alone.
The architect has designed this house so that the indoor swimming pool is fully integrated off
from the kitchen. Although accessed separately, any parent can be in the kitchen stirring the bread sauce whilst keeping an eye on their children playing in this fabulous 10 metre pool.
The kitchen itself has been superbly hand crafted and has beautiful hand-painted shaker style units. This kitchen is definitely a cook’s dream; all the appliances are top of the range and incorporate the very latest in modern technology – a sub zero wine chiller, integrated coffee machine and two dishwashers to say the least. With equipment like this in the kitchen, cooking the Turkey is going to be a breeze – 4 ovens ensure that you will have room for all your trimmings without having to worry about keeping food hot.
Finding somewhere to relax after lunch could be tricky, there are so many places to rest in this sumptuous house! The sofas in the kitchen area invite you to put your feet up and watch a movie on the 50″ flatscreen TV or play on the Wii or Xbox? Or perhaps relaxing on a lounger in the pool area would be a treat to get away from the chaos for a while and enjoy a real change of scenery.
But the sitting room will also be calling you – this room is really rather large and boasts a wonderful fireplace. Fitted out with luxury sofas which you will just melt into might be hard to resist. This room has double doors out to the rear garden and patio. Beyond which is a wooded area giving you complete exclusion from the outside world.
September House has a few other aspects that could make your Christmas even more
surprising than ever. The music system has in-built ceiling speakers through out the house so whether it is Christmas carols, Lady Gaga or Bach that is your fancy, this is going to be perfect for any party.
If you wanted to make it an alfresco Christmas this year then you could chance your hand at cooking your turkey in the outside kitchen which has been very nattily incorporated into the garden. If not for the winter this outdoor kitchen is going to be the place to be seen in the summer in Wentworth.
The property has fabulous guest and/or staff facilities – depending on what suits you best. If having mum-in-law for a week or two has been a challenge then the quarters over the triple garage will come in mighty handy. With their own stairs to and from the back entrance this will give your guests or employees a wonderful sense of independence. These quarters have their own kitchen area including washing machine and dishwasher to keep your workload down to a minimum.
Every bedroom in the main house – of which there are 6 – comes with its own en-suite bathroom. All decked out with the very latest in luxury bathroom equipment – it might be difficult not to spend an inordinate amount of time enjoying this living space in your home.
The master suite in September House is lavish on a scale that most homes will never be privy too. The walk in dressing area in this house is an example of the very finest craftsmanship. No expense has been spared to create something that is functional whilst being beautiful and designed to keep your clothes and shoes in perfect order.
The bedroom itself has a wonderful fitted gas fire for Father Christmas to visit and the
furniture that has been selected for this room is totally luxurious. You could be sitting in a 7* hotel in Dubai or New York with the finery in this awe-inspiring master suite.
September House is priced at £6,500,000 and is ready to move into today. The furniture within the house is there to keep if desired and since the house was designed with this furniture in mind – you would be mad not to have it.
