Detached House for sale - Forest Drive, Keston, BR2

Offering 18,000 sq ft of opulent living and entertaining space, Winstons has been painstakingly designed and built to an eye-watering cost and specification, as befitting a landmark property which resides on a prime double plot in the centre of this prestigious private park.

Located behind electronic cast iron gates the house is approached across a vast resin bonded driveway which provides secure parking for numerous vehicles. A decorative portico frames an oversized front door with central hinge opening to a highly impressive marble tiled entrance hallway which immediately showcases the obvious quality of the interior with an ornate sweeping staircase, connecting all four floors of the building.

Accessed from the entrance hallway is a study with walnut herringbone floor and bespoke joinery, a large formal drawing room with open fireplace and doors to the rear patio and garden. The beautifully appointed kitchen/dining/living space is a tremendous hub of the home with large horseshoe breakfast bar, two rooflights, a full compliment of Gaggenau appliances and sliding doors, overlooking and opening to the rear terrace and swimming pool.

The ground floor is completed by a nine seater cinema room with Italian leather seats, panelling and a commercial cinema grade sound system. The lower ground floor is given over almost in its entirety to an entertaining space that begs to be used as often as possible and has the relaxed yet sophisticated feel of a private members club with bar area, games room and a high quality Bowers and Wilkins sound system. Discreetly tucked off the entertaining space is a fully functional gym with air conditioning which opens to a spa with hydrotherapy pool, sauna and shower area.

Upstairs, the first floor comprises four large double bedrooms. The master bedroom is highly luxurious, overlooks the rear garden via its own private roof terrace and features a beautiful bespoke his and hers dressing room alongside a full bathroom with stand alone brass bath tub and separate shower, marble tiled floor and mirrored wall. The remaining three bedrooms on this floor all have en suite bathrooms of varying styles with two also including bespoke fitted dressing rooms.

The top floor provides flexible space that can be used for further guest or family bedrooms or for staff accommodation as it is furnished with a kitchen, living room and two bedrooms with en suite facilities. As with all floors within the property the second floor is serviced by a lift.

Outside, to the rear is a large terrace with covered, heated veranda, an outside kitchen. The terrace features a hidden, heated swimming pool which can be uncovered at the touch of a button. Additionally, alongside the manicured gardens is a private 4G five a side football pitch.

Alongside the magnificent accommodation, Winston's offers a state of the art security system with zonal mist spray fire protection, climate control throughout and has full coverage as a smart home from a Control 4 system which enables complete home automation from the owners phone.

Keston Park was the brainchild of property developer Frederick Rogers who acquired the land in 1923 from the Earl of Derby. His travels had taken him to America where he had been inspired by houses in beautiful parkland settings so he set about recreating this with Keston Park. It remains one of the most exclusive private estates in the South East and is privately gated at all entrances.

Locksbottom is within a few minutes walk and has an array of excellent restaurants, traditional public houses, independent and national retailers, coffee shops and two major supermarket chains.
