Home automation underscores luxury of “Mini Hollywood” complex!
Five luxury properties in an exclusive postcode on the outskirts of London has the technology to match its sleek design and first-class amenities. HiddenWires goes behind the gates of the homes.
You know the market is changing when a house listing on one of the UK’s most popular websites for browsing properties for sale reads as follows: “Key features: Crestron technology system,” ahead of “6 bedrooms,” “6 bathrooms,” “dining room” and “study.” Clearly the modern-day discerning homeowner is not only is becoming familiar with home automation, they may have a brand preference.
This is why London-based home automation specialist ClearSphere secured the contract to provide control, AV, lighting, heating, security and door entry for the future owners of five properties located at a newly built complex at Fulmer Drive in Gerrards Cross, Buckinghamshire in the southeast of England. Nicknamed “Mini Hollywood” by some due the celebrity residents of the greenbelt town, the complex is located in the much sought-after Dukes Wood Estate area.
With individual properties priced at over £2.5 million (€2.8 million), it was integral for installer ClearSphere and the property management team that technology met the high expectations of potential homeowners.
“For us, one of the key focuses for this new development was to adhere to the increasing demand for smart homes,” commented Mav Sandhu, managing director at Landmark Group, the building group behind the project. “More and more clients are adding home automation to their wish list of must-haves in their property search, so ensuring these luxury homes met that demand was of great importance.”
Briefed to introduce one comprehensive home automation system that could bring versatility into each of the five homes, ClearSphere opted for Crestron AV automation, in addition to full lighting control, heating integration and security.
