The Property:

Silver Gables is a stunning five bedroom home, echoing the form of the former vaulted barn for Osborne Park Farm. This property incorporates a fully glazed gable with a double height reception space and balcony off the master bedroom to optimise views over the open countryside.

Description:

Osborne Park is a stunning development of just three unique luxury homes in a countryside setting on the edge of Little Heath, Potters Bar.

Silver Gables is approached through private gates, and is one of three exclusive, contemporary homes in the historic parklands of the Duke of Leeds.

With vaulted ceilings, glass features, modern design, these homes truly exemplify sophisticated design in the countryside. Every last detail of the design makes the most of its surrounds, as well as creating an inviting atmosphere within.

On every level, modern luxuries abound. An expansive open-plan kitchen, dining and lounge area offers the perfect space for getting together, while a separate snug, complete with an open fire, is a quiet spot to retreat. The living area's central floating timber staircase acts as a dramatic focal point, and there are subtle nods to Osborne Park's original agricultural buildings too, with impressive double-height ceilings and fully glazed gables. The master bedroom, meanwhile, enjoys the finest views from its private glazed balcony.

Throughout, large windows invite plentiful natural light and huge sliding doors transform the terrace into a magnificent alfresco living area, ensuring inside and out exist in perfect harmony. The main reception space is double height with a fully glazed gable, connecting with the landscape beyond. The glazing is set into the building to provide a covered area with spectacular sliding doors to blur the boundaries between inside and outside. Views are afforded out into the landscape with double height glazing which is screened along the southeast elevation by a black timber brise soleil to prevent overheating in the summer.

From the outside, the effect during the daytime will be of a dark solid elevation, but during the evening, the building will glow through the timber slats. During the day, the shadows inside will have dynamic diurnal and seasonal patters and the eye will be drawn past the dark screen into the view of the landscape beyond.

Location:

Osborne Park is in an unspoilt rural setting and nestled through private gates, this small and very exclusive collection of unique homes redefines rural living. Silver Gables offers the space and seclusion only available from a countryside home, combined with cutting-edge design and luxurious finishing touches. Here you can enjoy peace and privacy while being a part of a thriving local community – all just minutes from Brookmans Park, and with convenient connections to Cambridge (64 minutes by train) , the capital (Kings Cross 16 minutes by train) and beyond.
