Be­spoke con­tem­po­rary home in stun­ning set­ting

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - BUCKS PROPERTY -

OVER the past 12 years, Andi and Roger Price have en­joyed ev­ery­thing about life at Lantern Lights, their mag­nif­i­cent, ar­chi­tect-de­signed house at Ger­rards Cross.“Quite sim­ply, we built the house of our dreams here,” said Roger.“It has ev­ery­thing in it we de­sired, from great win­dows, through which we can watch glo­ri­ous sun­sets to a beau­ti­ful gar­den, which was pro­fes­sion­ally mapped out.”

The plot, just over an acre in size, was sur­rounded by trees.“We felt it was on the nicest street in Ger­rards Cross, and we liked the fact it was op­po­site an Iron Age hill fort and backed on to Bul­strode Park. It seemed ideal for us.”

The prop­erty boasts a num­ber of 21st-cen­tury fea­tures, such as in­tel­li­gent light­ing, with sen­sors; a smart home sys­tem, to con­trol the heat­ing, and au­to­matic blinds.There are also so­lar pan­els and a leak de­tec­tion sys­tem.

It is a prop­erty that would cer­tainly suit a fam­ily or home own­ers who en­joyed en­ter­tain­ing.“For me the kitchen is the heart of the home,” said Andi.“It is open-plan, which means you can still be part of the ac­tion while you are cook­ing. Hav­ing said

that we do have Amer­i­can white oak slid­ing doors in case we want to close it off while we are en­ter­tain­ing.”

“When you sit in the draw­ing room you feel as if you are right out in the gar­den.We love be­ing able to look out at the views, which are con­stantly chang­ing and where you can watch one sea­son move into the next.”

“In the win­ter we can see through to Bul­strode Park at the back, where there are of­ten cat­tle graz­ing and we en­joy the beau­ti­ful sun­sets through the trees,” said Roger.
