Bedlam – Agester Lane, Denton
Bedlam was conceived by the current vendors to provide contemporary family accommodation, with a keen eye to detail and style, in a unspoilt rural location. Completed in 2011, the property has been built to the highest standards with a mix of traditional materials with a curved roof structure clad in copper and engineered to have no internal visible supports providing a large, vaulted and seemingly unsupported roof.
The rural location has been a source of inspiration, influencing the colour palettes used throughout. The railings and garden gates have been specifically commissioned from local blacksmiths to depict the branches and tree trunks of the surrounding woodland. Many of the materials used have been specifically sourced from around the world, for example the Turkish marble which has been used throughout the ground floor and the Chinese silk wallpapers, silk carpets, etc. The main kitchen area has a strong Italian influence with Kundalini light fittings.
The house has been carefully designed and built to the highest of modern standards creating an energy effient home with a user friendly home automation system.
Principally to the rear, the gardens have mature oaks, copper beech and mulberry trees. The grounds are laid to lawn with shady woodland areas, azalias and rhododenrons.
The front of the house is laid to lawn and a separate paddock is currently a wild flower meadow. The woodland adjacent to the road protects the grounds and is part of the curtilage.
The gardens are newly fenced with the additional protection of rabbit fencing.
