PH Property Holdings - Highfield House
Highfield House, in the sought-after village of Prestbury, achieves the perfect equilibrium of the contemporary and the traditional. A unique family home, Highfield House is a meticulously designed residence that defies convention or comparison. Developed by PH Property Holdings Ltd, the property was designed by Scott Donald of Reid Architects. Covering 6,350 sq ft, Highfield is an outstanding modern home, set in the privacy of a landscaped garden and spanning over two-thirds of an acre.
Highfield’s magnificent double-height entrance hall immediately welcomes and impresses. The staircase of steel, glass and oak rises from a stone plinth, perfectly illustrating the distinctive blend of traditional and contemporary that characterises Highfield. The elegant hall leads to a magnificent living room, a family room, a dining room and a media room, where the subtle jura limestone (present throughout the ground floor) provides a seamless transition between the ground floor accommodations. The kitchen is also stunning, gracefully combining style with practicality, showcasing Highfield’s commitment to only the highest quality specifications. Inside, gone are traditional doors leading to cellular rooms. They have been replaced with sliding planes and pivoting doors that, when open, are not even noticeable. This intelligent planning and openness of space makes Highfield unique in enabling natural light to penetrate all spaces. In addition, it allows constant glimpses of the greenery of the gardens or the calming azure water of the swimming pool. The open-plan nature of the living spaces and their subtle connectivity make Highfield unique in planning terms.
Highfield boasts external glazed doors, detailed as sliding-and-folding screens, which can be fully dissolved to unite the interior and exterior, thus allowing the interior to fully embrace the gardens and allow uninterrupted vistas of them. This enables the gardens and interior to fuse together, perfect for social and modern-day living. Houses have traditionally been built from immovable bricks and mortar, yet one of the main innovations of Highfield is its flexibility and adaptability.
As part of its leisure wing, Highfield provides luxuries of modern living without having to leave the home. A four-person spa lies beside an opulent heated indoor level-deck swimming pool, where the views of the gardens (afforded by the sliding-and-folding screens) complement the jura limestone and beautifully engineered oak-clad walls to create a tranquil and serene ambience. The first floor accommodates the bedrooms and these are arranged around a stunning galleried landing; the large walls of glass ensure that natural light envelops the rooms. Full-width folding doors are a feature of the master suite and second bedroom, as are superb en-suite bathrooms and fully-fitted dressing rooms. Completing the first floor are three more lavish bedrooms and two bathrooms, with each room impressing due to the attention to detail that so epitomises Highfield.
Highfield is a unique home. It achieves a perfect balance of a range of stunning features: traditional and modern, openness and privacy, style and practicality. In an area that is no stranger to lavishness, Highfield House truly stands out as a house of immense luxury and style.
