If you want a beautiful contemporary home with traditional features, an exceptional specification and an idyllic setting on a private estate – then five-bed Clayton House is for you.

Millwood Designer Homes is holding an exciting event on Saturday 21st September, between 10am and 4pm, to preview its latest addition to prestigious Dormans Park, near East Grinstead.

The award-winning housebuilder is no stranger to the park, having built a number of luxury, detached homes here over the years. Millwood has a strong reputation for building exceptional family homes that combine traditional Yeoman-style elements with all the benefits of modern innovation, and Clayton House is no exception.

Designed to reflect the local architecture and environment, you could be living in a home that has charm and character – the ideal combination for this historic park – blending aesthetically with the beautiful, tranquil surroundings. For this reason, a Millwood home at Dormans Park always proves incredibly popular, with many selling before they are even completed.

Clayton House is grand yet homely. The entrance hall has an inviting welcome, flooded with light from the dormer window above the front door. Its practical design gives access to all the rooms on the ground floor – the dining room, study, cloakroom and impressive drawing room with a traditional stone fireplace and French doors that are flanked either side by large windows, with views of the raised terrace and rear garden.

As soon as you enter the kitchen/breakfast/family room, your eyes are drawn to the wall of windows ahead of you. Just like the drawing room, it gives a wonderful view of the garden and floods the room with natural light. The top half of the windows are bifolds, allowing you to open them all the way, whilst the French door to the side gives access to the raised terrace, which has sandstone capping and glass ballustrades.

The kitchen features bespoke cabinetry, granite worktops, a central workstation and is fully-fitted with a range of high-end appliances. There is a separate utility with access to the garden.

Upstairs, there are five spacious bedrooms, three of which are en suite, and a large bathroom. The master bedroom features a luxurious en suite and a walk-in wardrobe, but it is the Juliet balcony that won’t fail to impress. Above the French doors sits a glass arch, creating a unique feature in the room, whose shape is mirrored opposite in the archway to the walk-in wardrobe and in the vaulted ceiling, which brings the whole design together.

Says Paul Dixon of selling agent Robert Leech, “Clayton House is a wonderful family home with a versatile layout and a natural flow between rooms. Due for completion this winter, it will be finished to an incredibly high standard. Villeroy & Boch sanitaryware ensures a stylish bathroom and en suites and you’ll find pre-wiring for a multi-room audio system in selected rooms. There is highly-efficient underfloor heating to all floors with individual zoned controls and an alarm system fitted to both the house and garage.

“A Millwood home is always very popular in this prestigious park. Do come along to this preview event as I have sold similar properties for this developer, prior to the property being completed. Make sure you don’t miss your chance.”
