The Arabesque has a truly stunning appearance, with two box bay windows and an impressive entrance under an overhanging roof. This beautiful home has been inspired by the rural, lakeside homes in New England.
If you want your dream home, there really can be no room for compromise and this stunning, fully furnished dwelling certainly goes the whole hog when it comes to luxury living. The Arabesque offers stylish, open-plan living space with integrated Bosch appliances, comfortable furnishings, and two contemporary bathrooms that wouldn’t look out of place in a five-star hotel. Lissett was established more than 35 years ago and has gained a reputation for being one of the very best in the industry thanks to an extensive range of welldesigned, top-end customised homes. The Arabesque is up there with its very best.
The quality of the Arabesque is apparent before you even open the impressively grand front door. From the outside the first thing you notice is its distinctive silver/grey colouring – with anthracite windows and doors coming as standard and smart, co-ordinated guttering and downpipes. There are three box bay windows and bi-fold doors leading into the lounge. It all adds up to create the overall impression of a modern, wellthought-out home. Inside, there’s plenty more to back up that first impression, including remote controlled electric blinds, a built-in sound system and designer radiators.
If cooking and entertaining are important to you, then the Arabesque’s impressive, modern kitchen will fill you with joy. And even if your culinary ambitions are more limited, you can’t fail to be impressed – and perhaps you’ll even be inspired! – by what’s on offer. The built-in appliances – induction hob, two ovens, dishwasher and microwave – are all from the super-reliable German brand, Bosch. You might not be able to guarantee a perfect soufflé every time but you certainly won’t be able to blame the equipment if it all goes flat! The kitchen also boasts two remotely controlled skylights, which allow light to flood in, and a breakfast bar with two stools.
The contemporary theme continues through to the open plan dining room, and its Scandinavian dining suite. The dining area leads into an impressive lounge with bi-fold doors that open out onto a patio area. The two designer sofas are angled to make best use of the space and each has its own stylish coffee table, while the Nordic feel is enhanced by the wooden flooring and dark wood sideboard. Thanks to the vaulted ceiling and large windows, the living room is bright and airy, and telly addicts will love the 55ins Samsung wall-mounted TV. Across from the kitchen, a hallway leads through to the bedrooms, but first you’ll find the fitted study, complete with designer office chair; a peaceful haven where you can get working on that novel you’ve always wanted write – or simply catch up on your emails.
In the carpeted master bedroom you’ll find a 5ft bed with padded headboard, sitting below a long, narrow window that, along with the main windows, provides plenty of daytime brightness. Designer fabrics make for stylish curtains, bedspreads and scatter cushions and the distinctive, two-tone, fitted furniture – including a dressing table, wardrobes and bedside drawers – offers plenty of storage options. Bedside lamps and reading lights provide illumination for night-time reading. The second bedroom is just as stylish, including a curved, corner dressing table, complete with stool.
The main bathroom is a special affair, featuring a designer bath with thermostatic shower and screen. The walls around the bath are fully tiled with grey brick-look tiles, and there is waterproof Aqua-Step laminated flooring underfoot. The WC and vanity unit/basin are super chic and there’s a tall, heated towel rail by the door. The master bedroom also has an en suite shower room, featuring a huge walk-in shower, a wide vanity unit and basin and heated towel rail.
