From private cinemas to hot tub towers, discover the lavish amenities that are turning luxury properties for sale into the ultimate indulgent haven
Games room? Check. Spa room? Check. Media room? Check. These days, luxury properties for sale come with far more than ‘just’ a perfect location, many bedrooms, and panoramic, exquisitely finished living areas. For the ultimate indulgence, this new breed of opulent mansions comes with every conceivable bell and whistle – including many that, until recently, used to be the preserve of five-star hotels – and even some quirky features that mirror their owners’ personal passions. So, for example, Warford Hall in Great Warford, Cheshire, not only has a state of the art kitchen with Subzero appliances, and the obligatory cinema room, games room and bar room, but it also features a beauty treatment room, a private nightclub and a massive leisure suite complete with Jacuzzi, steam room and 12-metre pool – complete with magnificent chandelier hung above the water.
