PROP­ERTY ed­i­tor Caro­line Cu­lot went to visit the lav­ish and very stylish home of a Nor­wich City star, at The Oaks, Wick­le­wood, for sale for a guide of £1.3 mil­lion with Warn­ers.

I’m not go­ing to use the cliche ‘size doesn’t mat­ter’ ex­cept I just did. Es­tate agent David Warner ex­plained the need for a large home; to ac­com­mo­date and to en­ter­tain fam­ily and guests.

I’ve seen some pala­tial homes in my decade as prop­erty ed­i­tor but noth­ing quite pre­pares you for how large over 7000 sqft is! The games room is sim­ply cav­ernous; you’ve got three large games ta­bles in there as well as a suite of so­fas, mas­sive TV and adorn­ing the walls, sev­eral framed foot­ball shirts, the only big clue as to who lives there. By the way the foot­baller isn’t leav­ing, but wants a home nearer the city cen­tre so there’s no trans­fer that I know of on the footie cards!

The games room leads to a fully equipped gym con­verted from one of the garages and up­stairs are two bed­rooms which could be con­verted into a sep­a­rate an­nexe if needed. Like much of the house, these bed­rooms boast lux­u­ri­ous deep car­pet, the sort your feet just sink into and dis­ap­pear and like this en­tire house, the rooms are beau­ti­ful.

The own­ers of this fan­tas­tic prop­erty have cre­ated a sen­sa­tional and in­cred­i­bly stylish home both for re­lax­ing and en­ter­tain­ing. The room lead­ing into the games room is a mas­sive study with a beau­ti­fully painted shelv­ing struc­ture where there were bunches of white flow­ers ar­ranged along with the nu­mer­ous books. There are too many rooms for me to men­tion here; so I’ll pick out my favourite fea­tures.

I loved the large glam­orous en­trance hall with an im­pos­ing cen­tral stair­case, beau­ti­fully crafted from oak. You have a ‘wow’ kitchen; porce­lain floor tiles, gleam­ing, sleek units and walls painted in sage along with comfy so­fas and slid­ing doors along one en­tire wall look­ing out to the acre gar­den.

I would bor­row a lit­tle girl to be my daugh­ter just so she could have the pink girl’s room which was so pretty and, like the boy’s room, has a large en suite bath­room. The master bed­room was just so beau­ti­ful; with silk drapes and vin­tage mir­rored bed­side cab­i­nets and as a cen­tre­piece, an enor­mous vase filled with flow­ers. The en suite boasts an egg shaped con­tem­po­rary bath and an ‘in and out’ shower. As for the dress­ing room, I was just so jeal­ous! There are eight bed­rooms in to­tal, six en suites and glam­our and style in abun­dance. Yes, this is a su­per­sized home but it’s su­per stylish too.
