Vision

Hamill Homes have combined creative traditional design with modern appliances and technology, combining a luxury aesthetic with the practicality and reliability required for high-end living. Examples of this can be seen throughout the house. The liveable space has been maximized, whilst ensuring plentiful storage facilities. The kitchen’s appearance is in-keeping with the luxury finishes throughout the house, but performs with all the practicality & functionality of a gourmet restaurant. The technology is highly functional for today’s capability, while being future proofed for advances in the years to come.

Achieving a home which is both beautiful in appearance, and functional in everyday life for years to come is the bedrock of Hamill Homes. In setting out such a vision, Hamill Homes have chosen to work with some of the best and brightest designers in the business. Please read on to hear their perspective.

Home Electronics and Media

Daniel Baker was handed a unique opportunity to carry out the full electrical and media installation, to fulfil an exceptional specification at Wildcrest, combining state of the art media, lighting and Secom security systems.

The RAKO lighting controls, system integration and app control presents technology for modern living and supplies mood lighting to all rooms. Wildcrest utilises the SONOS sound system; a wireless app connecting directly to different rooms sending a variety of music simultaneously through high performance ceiling-mounted speakers from Bowers and Wilkin.
The TV distribution consists of two satellite dishes to receive Sky/Free-sat UK and foreign satellite with multiple languages. All TV outlets are category 6 fibre optic cabled to enjoy viewing at the highest level of definition.

The brushed chrome outlets throughout this property concludes the premium finish. The speci cation at Wildcrest set the highest of standards, and these standards have been consistently achieved and surpassed.

Kitchen

The kitchen has been designed by Lida Cucina, an award-winning design house and part of the Alexander James International Group. The shaker style kitchen combines top of the range modern appliances with expertly crafted traditionally styled units and worktops. Integrating perfectly with natural light and space, the kitchen is aesthetically beautiful, while having the top end functionality and practicality of a gourmet restaurant.

The kitchen units come from internationally renowned brand Charles York, finished off with high quality quartz worktops and backsplashes.

Integrated appliances feature throughout, using the premier ranges from Wolf, Miele, Zip taps and Blanco sinks. These features and finishes are consistent throughout the Lida Cucina designed rooms, including the utility, pantry and bar on the topfloor.

Bathrooms

In conjunction with European Bathrooms, the bathrooms have been designed to the highest level of specification and are completely bespoke for Wildcrest.

They feature ceramic sanitary ware from Villeroy & Boch, and chrome fittings from Hans Grohe throughout. Stone composite baths and handmade one of a kind furniture combine wonderfully with exquisite tiling and subtle lighting. PIR systems are fitted to electric towel rails to ensure warmth and comfort, and to the lighting systems for ease of use and safety.

Master Suite

The 1,250 sq master suite spans the width of the first floor and is reminiscent of a five start hotel suite, with a living room, bedroom, feature dressing room and luxury bathroom. The balcony has lovely views over the large back garden. Finished with decorative stone and well executed tiling, as well as wrought iron balustrade and handrail, the balcony provides a beautiful finish to the impressive suite.

Staircase

The staircase is a masterpiece and one of the most eye catching features of the house. Circling from ground floor to top floor, the concrete staircase is cladded in thick high-quality quartz, finished with hand crafted and decorated wrought iron spindles and a polished walnut handrail. The staircase circles around pools of natural light coming in from a large skylight above.

Exterior and Garden

A sweeping and plentiful permeable block paving driveway provides a stunning entrance to the house, with granite set edgings and ground lights adding to the grandeur. Pathways and patios are crafted with the highest quality tiling to compliment the internal living.

Quality manicured turf and expansive planting compliment the mature trees and shrubs which surround the property beautifully, creating a highly desirable setting.

An external dog washing station with hot and cold water has been provided.

Outdoors

Some of the finest, world renowned sporting facilities are in SL5, including Ascot Racecourse, The Berkshire Golf Club, Sunningdale Golf Club and Swinley Forest Golf Club. SL5 is also home to Coworth Park Hotel & Spa and The Berystede Hotel & Spa.

Nearby facilities include the open spaces of Savill Garden and Windsor Great Park, the polo at Guards and The Royal Borough of Berkshire, and more golf at a number of other courses rated in the UK top 100, including Foxhills Golf Club & Spa, Queenwood, The Wisley, Wentworth, West Hill, Woking and Worplesdon.

Ascot Design

Wildcrest is an example of Ascot Design’s determination and professionalism in negotiating with the Local Authority to maximise planning potential and achieve a building of the nest proportions.

The client required generous accommodation, so we gave considerable thought to the design of the internal layout to offer the distinction of executive living with the balance and functionality of a practical family home. The spacious entrance hall and magnificent semicircular staircase cannot fail to impress, whilst the kitchen, breakfast and family area have been combined into one outstanding room with views to the garden. The master bedroom is a substantial 1250 sq. . and all the other bedrooms incorporate dressing rooms and en-suite facilities.

Ascot Design was pleased to have acted for Hamill Homes on this outstanding project, which resulted in a truly magnificent home.

Alexander James Interior Design

The Alexander James Group of Companies is an award winning design practice providing interior design, architectural design and furnishing solutions to clients around the world.

With expansive knowledge of the Berkshire and Surrey property markets, we place huge emphasis on understanding the purchaser profile for each project, so that our designs help the potential buyer to visualise their life in the property. Hamill Homes’ vision for Wildcrest is that it should be a contemporary, comfortable and welcoming family home. The family could be local to the area or relocating from any global city, for a more suburban lifestyle. Therefore, the interior design scheme had to be luxurious, stylish and appropriate to the extremely desirable location of the property.

To create the required homely feel we kept the colour palette deliberately neutral throughout, providing an elegant and timeless feel. This soft neutral palette has been accented by complementary tones of emerald green and chartreuse bringing personality and depth to the space, and also connecting the house to the large gardens that surround it. Furniture in dark wood with gold accents has been selected for its simple elegant lines, and contemporary edge. Wood has been incorporated into the design, rather than chrome and glass, because it gives a softer more natural look, in keeping with Hamill Homes’ vision.

Elegance, style and comfort are at the heart of this scheme, and this is in evidence not only through the furniture but also the accessories, which include bespoke artwork and objets d’art. e Alexander James Group has also designed and installed a handcrafted painted kitchen by Charles Yorke. A large island with an eating area forms the heart of this beautiful kitchen which also benefits from a comprehensive selection of appliances, including a Wolf range cooker.
