This is a designer home, made with the modern and stylish host in mind.

Can you see yourself hosting elegant cocktail parties, having mates over for alfresco barbecues on game day, or do you simply want to upgrade your home to become the ultimate host? Well, this six-bedroom, three-bathroom property may be exactly what you’re looking for.

On first look you’re struck by the seamless integration of textured grey stone and warm wooden embellishments, sitting alongside an array of premium aesthetic touches.

Finishes such as feature lighting above the granite kitchen benchtop and a beautiful wooden housing for the gas fireplace and television in the lounge area add to the appeal of the elegantly planned home.

“The standard of finish and inclusions used in this build is exceptional. From the timber floors to the double-glazed windows, it is really one of the most impressive homes in Crace,” says selling agent Jason Roses of Luton Property.

The residents of the home would be well looked after with a main bedroom featuring walk-in wardrobe, luxe en suite and a private balcony overlooking a lush green space.

The main bathroom is another talking point, with a sleek, modern freestanding bathtub that is sure to get plenty of use.

The outdoor barbecue area is also designed for the deft cook – with stone benchtops, an in-built sink, storage and fridge.

A self-contained downstairs area is another high-class feature, with designer bathroom, bedroom, kitchen and living space. With only a handful of homes along the crescent facing a nature reserve, this prestigious property in such a key location is one to be seen.
