The new show home, designed by Goddard Littlefair, embodies refined sophistication, featuring subtle colours, a high level of layering, texture, detailing and craftsmanship. There is an emphasis on bespoke and British-made furniture, art and accessories, with items crafted by local artisans wherever possible. The deluxe penthouse interiors offer a textured and tactile design scheme, which both takes advantage of, and also offsets, the incredible light-filled interior that result from the building’s glass façade.
The single-storey apartment features an open-plan living space with adjoining living and dining areas, alongside a spacious kitchen with pantry. The three bedrooms include a master bedroom and master ensuite, plus a second and third bedroom, also both ensuite. Additionally, the generous space includes a study, guest WC and an expansive terrace area running along two full sides of the luxurious apartment. The terrace features planting, as well as a number of zoned configurations for lounging, dining and relaxing.
The living and dining areas play host to graphic shapes, bespoke items and handcrafted finishes via a materials palette of sophisticated neutrals – creams, golds, whites and blue greys – alongside rich dark wood. A large, hand-tufted rug sits beneath the living and dining furniture in an abstract pattern in two tones of grey, separated from the kitchen area at the far end of the space by a feature antique mirrored cabinet, with the mirroring hand-crafted in Devon.
The terrace concept features pale timbers, various shades of grey and blue, monochrome decorative highlights and plenty of planting for a strong biophilic feel. The first zone has an accent on outdoor dining with a 10-seater table, surrounded by hedging. A central relaxing zone has loungers, plus palms and succulents in planters, whilst a final lounging zone features sofas, armchairs and coffee tables. Along the narrower section of the terrace, furniture, including a swing chair, and planting punctuate the space at five interval points.
The bedrooms are feminine in style, with lots of layering and more complex, crafted finishes, including timber wall panelling, antique mirrored panels, birds-eye maple timber, leather and brass. They feature finely-proportioned elegant furniture, plus a dressing room with a stand-out multi-panelled feature pendant light. The colour scheme ranges from silver-greys to deep mulberry pink-reds.
