Homes out of this world

Filed under: Latest News — Four Communications @ 4:31 pm

London’s Madame Tussauds has unveiled a new exhibition of waxwork models dedicated to famous scenes from Star Wars. The exhibition celebrates the upcoming seventh instalment of the saga; Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens, scheduled to be released later this year. More than 180 sculptors worked for over a year to create 11 scenes, including making a 220kg Jabba the Hutt and spending 1,000 hours on Chewbacca, with the combined cost of all the figures estimated at £2.5 million. We have pulled together a collection of homes which benefit from striking contemporary architecture, reminiscent of Star Wars’ galactic vessels and ideal for any buyers with a love of the space age.

58 Tongdean Avenue’s pitched roof, porthole windows and glass galleries on the first and second floor landings give the property, situated in Hove, East Sussex, an almost rocket-like look, whilst also complementing the architecture of the neighbouring 1930s properties. A stunning central atrium sits at the heart of the property, with light pouring into the space from the glass ceiling above. The six bedroom house has been fitted out with the latest in modern technology, including a state-of-the-art swimming pool terrace with far reaching sea views. A separate self-contained annexe has a private rooftop terrace, offering the ideal space from which to star gaze. The property is on the market for £2,350,000 with our Arundel office (tel.: 01903 885886). For more information please click here.

Blue Elvin, situated on the outskirts of Newlyn, near Penzance, Cornwall, has won awards for its contemporary architecture, which mirrors that of a lunar base. The cedar clad elevations and glass balconies offer a contrast of texture and colour, with the huge windows allowing for sweeping views over Mount’s Bay. The internal technology reinforces the house’s status as a property built for the future, with solar panels installed to heat water, underfloor heating and a heat recovery ventilation system. There are five bedrooms, two of which benefit from access to balconies, in addition to an external courtyard and lawned gardens. The property is on the market for £1,150,000 with our Truro office (tel.: 01872 261160). For more information please click here.

Five bedroom Little Wilbur, situated in the village of Holme-Next-The-Sea, in Norfolk, was finished last year, making it one of the most modern homes available in the area. The brick and flint elevations complement the traditional local style, while the contemporary cedar cladding and unique curved roof provide striking additions. Internally, the two storeys are linked by striking curved stairwells, illuminated by inset feature lighting. The first floor sitting room offers a unique living space, with sliding aluminium doors opening onto a covered balcony, with views over the dunes to the coast. The property is on the market for £1,295,000 with our Burnham Market office (tel.: 01328 801333). For more information please click here.

Hafod is a contemporary four bedroom house situated in the town of Budleigh Salterton, on Devon’s south coast. The property has been designed to mirror the architectural style of an observatory allowing for panoramic views of the coast. The house has been imaginatively designed utilising carefully selected materials, including an oak frame structure which forms two tiered timber and glass balconies at ground and first floor. The 37 foot main reception room stretches the entire length of the house and is flooded by light through the floor-to-ceiling glass doors, which open onto the garden. The property is on the market for £1,375,000 with our Exeter office (tel.: 01392 214222). For more information please click here.

Far from your average home

Filed under: Latest News — Four Communications @ 3:29 pm

Last month saw the latest film adaptation of ‘Far from the Madding Crowd’ hit cinemas, 141 years after Thomas Hardy published the novel, forever cementing his place as one of Britain’s greatest authors. This most recent cinematic version stars Carey Mulligan as Bathsheba Everdene and Belgian actor Matthias Schoenaerts as Gabriel Oak, but in many ways the true star of the film is the rolling countryside of Dorset, thinly disguised as Hardy’s ‘Wessex’, where much of the filming took place. The following is a selection of some of the very best properties that Dorset has to offer.

In keeping with the principal residence featured in ‘Far from the Madding Crowd’, Dairy House Farm, situated in the village of Kington Magna is a beautiful period farmhouse. The property has four bedrooms, a hall, drawing room, snug, garden room and a timber barn with two stables. The house is Grade II listed and was built in the late seventeenth century with later additions and a complete renovation in 1990. However, perhaps the most beautiful feature of Dairy House Farm is its surrounding gardens and paddock. The gardens are peaceful and extensive, yet designed to be manageable. A fruit cage, fenced kitchen garden, lawns, various shrubbery and herbaceous borders and an orchard offer both manageable and pretty grounds.  The property is on the market for £1,250,000 with our Shaftesbury office (tel.: 01747 850858). For more information please click here.

22 Bladen Valley, situated in the sought-after village of Briantspuddle, is a beautiful thatched cottage, forming one end of a row of similar style properties, built just after the First World War. The cottages were built as part of the Debenham Estate in the Arts and Crafts style, with the style designed to blend sympathetically with the local aesthetic. The cottages were originally built as part of an innovative housing plan by Ernest Debenham, the grandson of the Debenhams drapery and department store empire. The early twentieth century property included sought-after features such as an inside lavatory and a pig pen. The three bedroom property has been renovated to the highest standard but retains its rustic feel with many wood-burning stoves in its living spaces and an AGA stove in the kitchen. The front and rear gardens extend to approximately three quarters of an acre. The property is on the market for £450,000 with our Dorchester office (tel.: 01305 262123). For more information please click here.

Old St. James’ served as the Chedington Parish Church until 1980 when the building was deconsecrated and subsequently converted into a residential dwelling. Built in 1840 from hamstone the building was designed by Taunton architect Richard Carver and originally consisted of just a nave and chancel, with the baptistery organ chamber and south porch added later. The property has lost none of this original character, with stained glass windows, a wood burning stove, galleried landing and arches with carved wood screens still featured inside. More recent additions include solid oak floors, staircase and joinery, granite worktops in the newly fitted kitchen and new bathroom suites. Old St James’ also benefits from four spacious bedrooms, many of which offer scenic views out over the half an acre of secluded gardens. The property is on the market for £745,000 with our Bridport office (tel.: 01308 423133). For more information please click here.

Constructed of red brick and rendered elevations under a pitched clay tile roof, Little London Farmhouse dates back to the Edwardian era. Recently refurbished and extended, standing in three quarters of an acre with spectacular views, the property occupies an elevated position, with views towards Duncliffe Hill. The house has just undergone a thorough renovation and extension and now comprises sensibly configured accommodation with light rooms and good ceiling heights. The property includes two wood burning stoves, an open fire in the sitting room, bespoke handmade timber-framed windows and a master bedroom with far reaching views. The house benefits from a  newly built fitted kitchen with an oak-framed glazed breakfast area and vaulted ceiling. The property also has three additional bedrooms with three bathrooms, a porch, hall, sitting room, dining room, snug and an office. The property is on the market for £740,000 with our Shaftesbury office (tel.: 01747 850858). For more information please click here.

Great Northern bounce in Land Registry figures

Filed under: Latest News — Four Communications @ 10:53 am

A great Northern bounce in the latest Land Registry figures in Yorkshire, The Humber and the Trafford district of Greater Manchester reflects longer-term confidence by buyers and investors following Government investment, according to leading property expert Nicholas Leeming, Chairman of upmarket national estate agents, Jackson-Stops & Staff.

Nick Leeming said: “London continues to outperform the rest of the country, even though sales levels over £1 million were down year on year in February, probably due to the threat of mansion tax. Newham showed the highest annual rise and Hackney the highest monthly increase which reflects how buyers and investors are increasingly looking East in the capital to find new areas offering value.

“Increased investment in Yorkshire, Humberside and the evolution of the Northern Powerhouse in Manchester have contributed to a surge in confidence in these areas. Greater Manchester is shaping up to be a great place to invest as major London companies continue to establish a presence in the City.”
