We live multi-media lives in analogue homes, and it is time our walls caught up with our windows.
When you enter the front porch, the automatic lights turn on to save you fumbling around in the dark with shopping bags. This intelligent lighting can be found in every corner of the home, both inside and out. Even the bathroom lights are intelligent. If you pop to the bathroom in the night soft lighting gently guides your way rather than blinding you with the main light. There is even a smart TV above the bath ensuring a long relaxing soak is never without entertainment.
Thought-provoking street lights extend down the lawns of the immense garden drawing the eye into the distance and letting your imagination race. Spotlights surround the decking giving you an ideal place to entertain. While the immense raised Koi pond stuns with a rainbow waterfall beneath a starry sky ceiling.
A zone-controlled multi-channel smart speaker system can be found across each floor. When we spend so much of our lives on handheld smart devices we really deserve better sound quality than tiny built-in speakers can provide. West Grove Road caters for your needs with a wireless system that doesn’t interrupt the audio of other family members throughout the house.
The living room is the centre of the home and has the hardware to prove it. The smart lighting and smarter speakers are further complimented by the digitally controlled gas fire. A poorly utilised fireplace can downvalue a home, leaving it to feel outdated. West Grove Road’s modern fireplace has been forged into the prominent feature of the room. This keeps attention away from the black mirror of the tv when it is not in use, cementing a more refined aesthetic.
The living room is not boxed in by the staircase. It instead uses feature lighting to draw the eye toward the portal through the wall into a seemingly endless tropical fish tank. This seamless integration whispers of the luxury that West Grove Road commands.
The stunning custom-built kitchen reflects the practical needs of modern life with a double oven, but also the shifting social function that dining plays in the home. The seamless hob facing into the dining area includes your guests in the experience of cooking turning it into a social occasion to share.
A room that sees increasing demand in the modern home is the Snug/ Play Room. Giving adults and children a chance to escape one another can come as a very welcome break. But this room should never be an afterthought. In West Grove Road this could well be one of the most stunning rooms in the house. One wall is almost entirely filled by the immense tropical fish tank. This private aquarium gives you a chance to really appreciate what is teased by the living room.
