Imperial Row, London Road, Ascot SL5 7EG

Kensington,  from Spitfire bespoke Homes, is one of four substantial detached residences at Imperial Row. This imposing and elegantly appointed five-bedroom house represents a rare opportunity to enjoy discrete luxury living on one of Berkshire’s most sought-after locations.

Contrasting with neighbouring St James, elegant bay windows create an expansive feel to the front facing rooms within.

Show Home open Thursday to Monday, 10am to 4pm

Offering over 4,836 sq ft of elegant living space set over three floors, the striking double-fronted neo-classical elevations of Kensington with its imposing stone columns and portico entrance creates an instant impression of grandeur while inside, the home benefits from peerless interior design and specification. It’s this enviable combination of setting and sophistication in a leafy historic and secluded setting near Ascot town centre that captures the very essence of fine living.

The thinking behind the specification of Kensington is to provide a home that delivers on all levels with emphasis on elegance, style and sophistication through thoughtful design and a peerless finish.

 

The neo-classical style, the oversized front doors and the 3m ceilings to the ground floor help to create a traditional and timeless exterior and a feeling of opulence. the balance between masonry and glazing has also been carefully considered which has resulted in the inclusion of large classically styled sash windows. In fact, this sense of proportion is paramount in determining not just how a house looks, but how it works and feels.

Using classic materials sourced from the finest specialists in Europe and the expertise of the Award winning Interior Designer, Alexander James Interiors features timeless fixtures and fittings designed for your home now and in the future.
