Grand-Scale Revival with Every Indulgence
Magnificent “Ashford” merges two eras of grandeur to create the ultimate in exclusive family living, metres from the beach and close to many schools. A flawless transformation by prestige construction company Davies Henderson brings luxurious quality to four living zones, four bedrooms, and an executive study. Dating back to 1913, the home’s original architectural elegance is paired with three levels of contemporary splendor. Attention to detail is extraordinary, on show in the vast family room, meals zone, elegant lounge, dining room, upstairs retreat and playroom. The basement level is just as wonderful as the rest of this home, with a wine room/cellar and gym/games room. The transition from classic Edwardian to landmark style is outstanding, providing an impressive array of lifestyle elements. Created for those who appreciate the finest craftsmanship, “Ashwood” is in a class of its own. Few Brighton homes offer this level of high-end sophistication, achieved through a desire to set a new standard in 21st-Century indulgence. Exacting planning has created a state-of-the-art New York marble kitchen featuring a walk-through butler’s pantry. It’s where form meets function with a custom-finished Ilve 120cm oven, Miele combi-microwave oven, two dishwashers, and custom-painted joinery with antique brass inlay. A luxury resort vibe has been created outdoors, with a huge undercover heated terrace for cooking outdoors and entertaining on a grand scale. The new-look glass-tiled pool with spa is app-operated for easy functionality. Look forward to having a sumptuous ground-floor parents’ retreat with extraordinary design elements in the indulgent marble ensuite and large walk-in wardrobe. There’s three luxe bathrooms, custom-built storage for more than 1,000 bottles of wine, hydronic heating and ducted air conditioning. The Miele laundry doubles as a mudroom, and there’s the convenience of rear access from Ripon Grove. All this and so much more is perfectly located in a prized street. Brighton Beach station and cafes are around the corner, and Church Street and Were Street Village shops are minutes away.
