Galliard Homes has launched Highbeam House at 581 High Road in Woodford Green, which consists of 14 luxurious two and three bedroom apartments, including duplexes, with underground car parking. Highbeam House is set in beautiful landscaped grounds whose centerpiece is a main private garden with terraces, pathways and lawns bordered by mature trees and planting. Ideal for downsizers or executives seeking a spacious home in a rural setting – and within easy commuter distance of Canary Wharf and the City - Highbeam House is located close to Woodford Underground station (Central Line), Woodford town centre and Woodford Green Golf Course. This highly desirable leafy suburban location is characterised by large family houses, low-rise apartment buildings and the rural parkland and woodland of Epping Forest and Roding Valley.
Highbeam House has a traditional white render and brick façade with features including large windows, oriel windows, balconies, French doors and ground-floor terraces. There are eight 2-bedroom lateral apartments arranged at ground floor level, each opening onto a private terrace (many offering views over the spacious private landscaped gardens). These are complimented by six large two- and three-bedroom duplex apartments occupying the first and second floors. Each duplex opens onto one or more large balconies, all overlooking the landscaped gardens. There is lift and staircase access from the lower ground parking complex to each apartment level above, and there are smart ground-floor main entrance foyers, providing a striking first impression for visitors.
The gardens at Highbeam House have been designed by award-winning landscape designers Bartholomew Landscaping (founded in 1989) who are Chelsea Flower Show and BALI Awards medal winners, and who have created beautiful gardens for private and commercial clients at some of London’s best addresses. Surrounded by mature trees and planting, the main landscaped garden has paved terraces and walkways with feature timber loggias, bordered by hedges and beds of flowers and plants. In its centre is a sweeping lawn interspersed with mature trees and planting. The gardens provide a focal point and green views for the apartments, and form a private and tranquil space for residents of Highbeam House to relax in or for entertaining.
The apartments have been designed to maximise light, space and garden views. Each has a generous window-to-wall ratio, enabling natural light to cascade into the rooms; generous ceiling heights and 2.2 metre high oak-veneered internal doors create living spaces which have a bright and airy ambience. Other features include luxurious master bedroom suites with en suite bathrooms and walk-in dressing areas, lined with deep built-in wardrobes; there is also an integrated ceiling sound/entertainment system to principal rooms and comfort cooling to reception rooms and bedrooms. Each of the apartments has a spacious reception room with oak veneer timber-laminate flooring and French doors opening onto either a balcony or private garden terrace. The kitchens are either separate or open-plan, with white high-gloss units, stone worktops and integrated Smeg appliances.
The duplex apartments are ideal for people relocating from a large house, since they benefit from entertaining and living areas on one floor and bedroom suites on the other. All have large private balconies and features that can include bay windows, vaulted ceilings, separate dining rooms and study/home office. David Galman, Sales Director at Galliard Homes says: “Highbeam House has been designed to provide low-maintenance luxurious homes ideal for executives wanting to commute into Canary Wharf, or downsizers who want a large duplex or lateral residence with space to entertain and accommodate their furniture. The beautiful landscaped gardens are perfect for people who love gardens but don’t want the hassle of maintaining it themselves. This is one of the most luxurious apartment schemes we have launched in the local region and potential purchasers can visit the dressed show-apartment and landscaped gardens to experience the quality of the development.” Visitors can tour the new show-apartment and gardens which is open daily. The apartments are priced from £499,000.
