The two chandeliers in the lounge, and the four wall sconces feature a mix of frosted and clear glass, creating a wonderful cascade of shimmering hand sculpted crystal pendants. The stunning piece in the grand hallway carries through the theme beautifully. Each of these pieces shares the same jewel-like luminosity as light dances through their glass forms. Every Borghese light is unique and made painstakingly by hand. As well as a reflection of his own artistic vision, Rocco Borghese is passionate that each piece he makes should fit perfectly within its surroundings.

"The subtle bronze tones of metallic gloss Cubanit from the latest Creative Accents collection contrast brilliantly against deeply grained Sand Pine and smooth stone worktops, highlighting the drama of bold architectural shapes within a calm, sophisticated colour palette. All this is beautifully fused within the handless Segmento and slim line poggenpohl kitchen."

"The worktop from Caesarstone has an earthly brown shade consisting of beautiful small quartz chips blended to create a fine textured appearance, which complements the design and colour of the kitchen."

"The Spekva wooden worktop radiates warmth and comes in walnut. N o two pieces of wood are identical thus the various solutions SPEKVA offer makes each individual solid wooden worktop completely unique"

The planting at 1 Beech Hill Avenue is designed to create an interesting picture all year round with much attention paid to evergreen plants and ones with specific winter interest; Quercus ilex, Cornus 'Midwinter Fire' and Skimmia japonica are the backbone of the scheme. These plants surround the property with greenery and compliment its striking façade.

All the plants in the gardens are completely hardy and will survive year after year with only a small amount of general maintenance. Many can be cut to shape to keep them at a size to suit all individual requirements.

The boundaries of the gardens are planted with dense Laurel hedges and where more colour is required climbing plants that provide interest through each season; Clematis for winter and spring, Garrya eliptica for all year leaves and interesting flowers in late winterand Solanum jasminoides for a mass of white summer colour.

A specimen bonsai has been placed in the front garden and is surrounded by a low evergreen hedge to create a focal point when driving in to the property as well as when viewed from the inside.

There is space for seasonal colour alongside the all season planting and the gardens are designed to grow and mature with the family that own the property. There is ample space for ball games and play and with a neat Box hedge running round the perimeter of the lawn a buffer zone for wayward footballs means that the plants beyond won't become damaged.

The property is fitted with a Gigabyte network infrastructure and wireless connectivity via four 54 Mbps Netgear wireless access points. All RJ45 network points are patchable for Data, voice, VoIP and Power over Ethernet.
