Genesis is a striking and spacious property which has been recently completed to an exceptionally high standard by the present owners.

The central entrance hall leads on one side to a magnificent drawing/ball room with a balcony, beyond which is a Moroccan-inspired Palm room, and to the other side a 32' open plan kitchen/breakfast/family room with full length windows overlooking the gardens and lake. The lower ground floor features an impressive master bedroom suite comprising a bedroom with full length windows and balcony, dressing area and en suite bathroom. There are three further bedroom suites on this floor, all with French windows, and there is access to the atrium and balcony overlooking the indoor pool. The second lower ground floor, apart from two further bedroom suites, has been designed as the ultimate leisure and party area, with an 11m indoor swimming pool, gym area, games room and cinema. The overriding feature of the property is the benefit of flexible and adaptable accommodation which could have numerous uses and occupations, subject to the relevant planning consents. It sits in an elevated position taking full advantage of the undulating and far-reaching views.

The Garden
Sited in an elevated position, the immediate garden has been cleverly landscaped to create an attractive pathway winding through well stocked beds leading to lawn enclosed by a mix of shrubs and small trees. Adjoining the lawn is an area of ancient woodland including numerous mature beech, silver birch, walnut and cedar trees, and to the other side of the lawn is a well-stocked wildlife lake. The property is approached across Snelsmore Common over a gravelled track leading to double electric gates which open into an attractive courtyard with ample parking and children's 'soft' play area.

Flat and Office
Adjoining the house is a well-appointed office and flat, which comprises a fitted kitchen/sitting room, bedroom and en suite bathroom.

Tenants Charges

Pre-Tenancy

PAYMENT OF INTENT
When you apply for a tenancy, you will be required to make a Payment of Intent which is usually equivalent to one weeks' rent. This Payment of Intent will be offset against the total of initial monies required before the commencement of tenancy. The payment formalises your intent to proceed with an application for a tenancy, subject to contract, though it is refundable should you decide not to proceed with the tenancy. However, if you decide not to proceed, then all of the pre-tenancy charges and fees listed below will be deducted plus an administration fee of £60.00 (including VAT). Should the Landlord withdraw for any reason other than inadequate references, then the Payment of Intent will be refunded in full. Should the reason be for inadequate references, then the Payment of Intent will be refunded less the referencing charges as detailed below and an administration fee of £60.00 (including VAT).

RENT
The normal method of payment is either calendar monthly or quarterly in advance, subject to negotiations. Please note that the rent is usually exclusive of telephone, gas, electricity, Council Tax and water rates, which are all the Tenant's responsibility. Please note that the initial payment for the first period of rent, the deposit and the charge for the Tenancy Agreement is payable before Check-In commences, and must be cleared funds in the form of a Bankers Draft or by direct payment to our account. We cannot accept personal cheques or cash for this initial payment.

SECURITY DEPOSIT
Equivalent to six weeks' rent.

ALTERATIONS TO AGREEMENT
Any alterations requested by the Tenant's solicitor to our standard Tenancy Agreement will incur a fee of £90.00 (including VAT) per hour.

REFERENCES
The Company uses a Credit Reference Agency to process references. You will be asked for details of current and previous addresses, employer, bank and personal references. There is a fee of £50.00 (including VAT) payable per Tenant for processing the application. A further fee of £50.00 (including VAT) may be payable if a guarantor is required.

We will follow the instructions of the Landlord in making arrangements for the inventory check-in. An Inventory check-in is conducted at the time of possession by an independent inventory clerk. The Landlord is responsible for the check-in charge. Possession is granted after such a check-in, which is conducted during office hours Monday - Saturday. The costs will vary depending on the size of the property. It is advised that the Tenant attend the check-in appointment.

EARLY TERMINATION
Should a Tenant wish to terminate the tenancy before the end of the term and the Landlord agrees, the Tenant will be liable to pay the rent until the term expires, or the property is re-let, whichever is earlier. The Tenant will also be responsible for the repayment of the pro-rata commission paid in advance by the Landlord for the unexpired portion of the tenancy, unless the Tenant is exercising a break clause which is contained in the Tenancy Agreement.

CHANGE OF TENANT
Should an individual Tenant wish to vacate the property and replace themselves with an alternative Tenant, they will be obliged to obtain written consent from the Landlord. Upon receipt of this consent the Agent will draw up a new Tenancy Agreement to be signed by all parties. An administration fee of £420.00 inclusive of VAT will be charged for this service.

NON-PAYMENT OF RENT
An administration fee of £50.00 (including VAT) will be chargeable for each letter sent by us regarding late or non-payment of rent or administration charges. If any charges remain outstanding at the end of the tenancy, we will deduct the total amount from the security deposit.

The Tenant may request a reference at any time. The administration fee for the service is £50.00 (including VAT) and is payable when the reference is requested.
