PH are delighted to be breathing new life into these historic bones, with a sympathetic renovation that will once again establish it as the stunning centre of this breathtaking country estate, while placing it firmly in the 21st century, by enhancing its perfect setting with all the comfort, convenience and technology, that modern living demands.
Approaching Somerford Booths Hall, down it's long sweeping driveway, framed by stunning open countryside views, envokes a real sense of wonder and anticipation. Entering through the motorised estate gates, one cannot help but be impressed by the statement it presents. This exquisite Cheshire country house is a place where old world grandeur, meets 21st Century luxury, with a high-end specification to rival the very best modern homes.
Through the wide stone porch, behind the original lovingly refurbished grand double doors, lies a wondrously detailed entrance hall leading to the grand living room, which is a more formal space to entertain. Echoing the Hall’s elegant past with beautifully renovated decorative plaster cornicing, plus the original, meticulously restored bay window, which provides spectacular views out over the rear lawn, then onto the rolling parkland of the Estate and the Cheshire Plain beyond.
The magnificent 60m2 kitchen/breakfast room creates an awe-inspiring ambiance. Each element has been carefully curated, combining the finest materials, innovative technologies and bespoke design features.
This stunning kitchen is flooded with natural light, through huge windows and glazed double doors. It comes fully equipped with the latest state-of-the-art appliances, chosen to create a true culinary haven for serious chefs and passionate home cooks alike.
The sleek handleless cabinetry with striking horizontal and vertical line work, embodies a cool and contemporary style. Inserted into this classic setting, it creates a timeless aesthetic. Stunning polished quartz worktops, and large format floor tiles maintain the theme, ensuring practicality as well as beauty. There's an abundance of workspace for food preparation and presentation, and the huge kitchen island incorporating the latest induction hob, stylishly practical under mounted sink, and instant boiling water designer tap, offers limitless functionality while serving as a gathering point for family and friends, making it the perfect social hub.
Lighting plays a crucial role in enhancing the ambiance of this luxury kitchen, with high definition LED fixtures, illuminating the space and showcasing the exquisite finishes and period features.
No high-end kitchen is complete without a complimentary dining area, and this one is no exception. Adjacent to the large island, the spacious dining area can easily accommodate the grandest of dining tables, providing the perfect setting for memorable meals and engaging conversation. The utility room is accessed via the boot room, which is a practical and organised space, ideal for use as a preparation and serving station for formal catered events, due to its close proximity to the dining room.
Next to the kitchen, the more relaxed and informal family room is positioned to the front of the property, and provides a stylish and calming space. The Hall's stately dining room is a truly traditional entertaining space, authentic to the period of the house. Its large proportions and grand style lend themselves perfectly to formal gatherings and dinner parties, with room to comfortably seat over a dozen guests. Heated by a stylish log burner, and with a large window offering stunning views out over the rear lawn, it also features a full height glazed garden door, that accesses the grounds to the East of the building.
To complete the ground floor, you have a further study/media room offering superb views of the Estate. This space is pre-wired for sound and media, making it ideal for use as a home cinema, study or both – a stylish, adaptable solution for modern living.
On entering the magnificent Master Bedroom Suite, it becomes instantly clear that this is a very special space indeed. The Master Bedroom itself, sits on a more elevated level than the remainder of the first floor and is reached via a small, original staircase. Extending over the entire width of the rear of the Hall, it's comprised of four interconnecting rooms, each exuding the utmost in luxury, elegance and style.
At 603 square feet, the bedroom has enough space for the grandest of beds, and features its own intimate seating area, in front of the original garden view window. To its right, is a large informal sitting room. This relaxed but opulent space, is the perfect retreat, ideal for enjoying television viewing, listening to music, reading or quiet contemplation.
To the Master Bedroom’s left, lies the suite’s luxurious dressing room. Lined with fully fitted, stylish wardrobes and a perfectly lit mirrored dressing table. It's a truly indulgent and glamorous space.
Beyond the dressing room lies the suite's sumptuous bathroom. The ultimate exercise in luxury, this unashamedly indulgent space features a huge, flush tiled walk-in shower, and is furnished with the latest Duravit sanitaryware and Hansgrohe brassware. Nestling beneath the large window, sitting on its own raised platform to maximise the countryside views, is a stunning free-standing bath with floor-mounted designer taps. Soaking in its luxurious depths, the view allows nature to become an integral part of the cleansing ritual and relaxation process.
Opposite the show stopping bathing area, sits the magnificent bespoke double basin vanity unit, over 3m in length and perfectly framed by the huge backlit mirror above.
The remainder of the Hall's magnificently appointed first floor, is taken up by four further large double bedrooms. Bedroom 2, features another luxurious dressing area concealed behind a dividing wall, with a long run of fully fitted wardrobes. The large en suite also has a free-standing bath, positioned in the original feature bay window, giving more garden views.
Bedroom 3 has its own en suite, and bedrooms 4 and 5 are positioned around a large landing, with intimate seating area. Both are served by the adjacent luxury family bathroom, which features both free-standing bath and walk-in shower.
The top floor of the Hall provides excellent room for growth, as it benefits from several significant roof space areas which could, if desired, be turned into a generous amount of additional living space. Framed by the building's original heavy oak roof beams, these spaces would be ideal for the inclusion of a games room, home office, cinema, gym, self-contained apartment, or indeed for any number of other uses, beautifully enhanced by their characterful features.
