Summary: Country mansion for luxurious contemporary living

Set in a secluded village location, yet just 30 miles from Central London, with architecture inspired by the luxurious Italian villas of Lake Como, Woodrow is the ultimate country mansion for luxurious contemporary living.

Alexander James Interiors worked with developer Hencan Southern to design, style and accessorise the interior in order to create a turnkey home of a calibre fit for royalty.

The brief to AJI was to create a design with depth, luxury, muted tones and texture.  A palette of greys and dark wood was chosen, and when combined with beautiful wallpapers, luxurious fabrics and bespoke pieces of furniture, the result is truly spectacular.

Woodrow spans four floors and features eight ensuite bedrooms, a basement leisure complex with swimming pool and fitness centre, 14 seat cinema, and glass fronted wine cellar. There is also staff accommodation, a commercial kitchen and garaging for 6 cars.

One of the hardest tasks for a designer working on a property of this scale is to make it warm and welcoming.  AJI commented “The feel is elegant but also comfortable and inviting. A palatial property like this could easily end up feeling like a hotel, but this doesn’t, it is a truly wonderful home.”
