Oak Tree Manor is to be a truly remarkable contemporary country Manor House within formal managed six acre grounds, set in an unrivalled countryside location between Knutsford and Alderley Edge, by property design and development specialists, Brighouse Bespoke. In such an outstanding rural setting it is increasingly rare to be able to buy such an intricately considered, personal and innovative new build family home.
It presents a unique construction opportunity for an incoming buyer to acquire the site and to work with Brighouse Bespoke to build and create a very substantial, new country house of great architectural merit and built to the highest design specification. The main house is to be sited on surface reflection pools which extend outwards to the surrounding rural landscape and this private oasis, appears to ‘float’ blissfully amidst its timeless country setting.
The proposed luxury, warm, building palette incorporates smooth red sandstone, brass, copper and traditional slate. Combined with the dynamic interaction and flow of modern shape and form, it will result in an exemplary building in a perfect setting.
The house is to be accessed from a secluded and private driveway, through large, solid oak entrance gates leading onto the central courtyard area. A paved, central promenade with box hedge and flower gardens lead to an impressive, burnished bronzed front door.
The great hall presents an impressive central spacious reception area, accessing both left and right wings of the main house.
To the left is a formal dining room, with double ‘bi-fold’ doors opening to form a natural connection with the main kitchen and large family area. This is designed to create an extensive expanse of breathable, functional space ideal for high quality living and entertaining. Glazed patio doors will open seamlessly onto the outside upper terrace deck area providing panoramic views of the surrounding landscape.
The library and adjoining modern study are located to the right of the main reception hall, and double panelled doors open to reveal the very large formal lounge, which hosts an open fire. Glazed panelling enables views of the central reflection pool with floating patio areas.
The first floor will boast a very impressive master bedroom complex, encompassing the entire upper left wing. Here, the main bedroom is central, with a relaxing retreat area, with a tunnel fire and outdoor covered loggia. A generous dressing area opens onto a glass balustrade balcony with its own private countryside views. The en-suite bathroom, complete with high quality fittings and rain shower, can access an upper bathing deck mezzanine, with additional dressing area and luxury double bath.
The right wing of the first floor, provides three further large en-suite bedrooms, all with their own frameless, glass balustrade balconies.
Externally, at the rear of the house is a private sunken sun terrace located on the south wing, with heated waterfall feature.
The health, relaxation and entertainment suite is accessed from the broad stairs. This offers a ‘state of the art’ media room, games and modern entertainment centre. The health and rejuvenation spa area provides hot and cold health treatments with sauna, hammam steam room, ice font, mud room, relaxation beds and tranquillity pods.
The southern, upper deck facilitates an outdoor heated whirlpool and spa. This communal transitional area joining with the countryside, is designed to facilitate an enviable natural and holistic living experience.
A very large garage complex houses the property’s extensive vehicle parking as well as a large functional private games and music room, with fitness/dance and gym centre. An automated retractable flat roof enables activities to be enjoyed in the open-air.
The garden planting is tiered, extending outwards from the formal cut lawn, and managed flower beds.
A mature oak tree crescent creates a veil and the transition for the layering of the landscape with traditional wooden post and rail fences to paddocks from the open grassland. Planted green feature areas and wild flower meadows are to be edged with established trees.
The property is situated within easy access of Wilmslow, Knutsford and Alderley Edge, each with high quality schools, renowned restaurants and bars. The M6 and M56 motorway networks enable easily commuting to Chester, Liverpool and Manchester.
