Underfloor heated home ideal for aviation fans
A property based in Fulmer, Buckinghamshire, which is fully equipped with luxury underfloor heating, has entered the market for close to £4 million, and it might provide the perfect option for homebuyers who are aircraft enthusiasts.
Designed by a pilot back in 1961, Fugelmere Grange is a five-bedroom property planned out with an aeroplane in mind. While from the outside, the impressive house doesn’t resemble a plane, inside are details modelled on one. From its twin wings to its cockpit-like balconies, the former homeowner’s love of flying is expressed with subtle style.
Set in over four acres of well-manicured grounds, the unique home has been built to maximise the southward facing views. The house itself covers 5.535 square feet and has a triple garage built into the ground floor. Joining it is a drawing room, an expansive kitchen, a dining room and a spacious living area. Showcase features downstairs also include an opulent veranda and a winding central staircase in the style of those used in exclusive first-class sections of aeroplanes.
A dedicated cinema room inspired by in-flight film watching can be found on the ground floor, along with a home office and access to a dedicated wine cellar. Upstairs, there are three bedrooms, all with their own bathrooms, and two come equipped with dressing rooms. The master bedroom offers a huge balcony, a bathroom with separate shower and extensive storage space.
Outside the house are special areas designed for outdoor dining, including a circular patio and a large deck area, both with enviable views of the surrounding countryside.
