Property description

Location

Steppingstone is located on the slopes of Helsby Hill, a wooded sandstone hill above the Cheshire Plain and Mersey Estuary, much of which belongs and is managed by the National Trust. The nearby villages of Helsby and Frodsham offer a good balance of daily services and the City of Chester a more
comprehensive range. The M56 provides an excellent link with Chester, Liverpool and Manchester and Liverpool Airport is located about 21 miles away. Battersea heliport is approximately one hours flight time.

Description

The Steppingstone project was inspired by the owner’s wish to create a discreet and private house, perfectly aligned to contemporary living, in a stunning position. It embraces the functional aspects of neomodern architecture and key attributes of modern technology to provide a versatile and
comfortable living environment.

The relaxed, free-flowing nature of the property belies the sophistication of the design. A substantial section of the property lies beneath the original ground level and yet the light, air quality and views are exceptional.

The fully integrated technology includes keyless doors, some with fingerprint recognition, an audio/visual system supporting various satellite feeds, lutron lighting both mechanical and
natural climate control.

There are both large and small spaces within the structure, with the main living area being largely open plan. The leisure facilities are exceptional and range from an indoor sports hall to a gym, indoor pool with a sauna and jacuzzi, to an outdoor 3G surfaced 5-aside football pitch.

Accommodation
The site is accessed from the land via sliding electronic gates opening onto a block-paved driveway. The front door is discretely positioned and opens into a hallway beside the staircase giving access to the property’s four floors.

The main living space is provided in a dramatic single room. Whilst it is a substantial space, it is cleverly divided by partitions into a series of “rooms”, each with their own particular style. They include relaxed and more formal sitting areas, a dining room and kitchen. The emphasis is on simplicity of form and function and a 22m panoramic window takes maximum advantage of the spectacular views of the surrounding countryside. This panoramic view was the original inspiration for the project.

The house is linked to a garage block, one section of which is part-glazed, and beyond is an open plan office. An excellent staff flat opens onto a central courtyard.

The fixtures and fittings are of the highest quality and the technological hub is in a room linking the living space with the gardens.

A second staircase leads to the leisure section, the focal point of which is a fully equipped sports bar with fridges, seating and three TV screens. The bar overlooks an open hall used for indoor games such as cricket, badminton and football.

Parallel to the sports hall is a stunning indoor pool with a sauna, jacuzzi and changing rooms, and a gym.

The bedroom accommodation is split between a family area and guest suites. The family area has additional seating and sits within the tower from which there are excellent views.

The staff flat has independent access and opens onto a central below ground courtyard.A part-glazed link provides additional garaging and a covered walkway to the main garage block and workshop. The offices are beyond and offer excellent, versatile space.

There is also a state-of-the art wine cellar.

Gardens & Grounds
Steppingstone sits in attractive gardens and grounds
framed by mature hedges. Again the emphasis has been
on leisure with a 3G sports pitch, zip-wire, children's Adventure Playground, Outdoor TV lounge, Covered American Pool Room, Tree House and Fire Pit.

The Upper Garden is used as a helicopter landing area and there is also a wild flower meadow, orchard area along with elevated vegetable plots.
