Designer home at Branksome Road for sale at $12.5 mil

SINGAPORE (EDGEPROP) - When interior designer Anne-Louise Minter and her husband bought their first home in Singapore at end-2012, she knew she wanted to tailor each room to the personality and taste of each of her family members.
The renovation of the family home, a 2½-storey detached house with 6,500 sq ft of built-up space, sits on 7,126 sq ft of freehold land at Branksome Road in District 15.

The entire renovation took almost three years as Minter fine-tuned her design and sourced materials from Europe.
“Before we brought this house, we had been renting various properties in Singapore for 15 years. We felt it was time to buy as renting means making changes is not simple as you must first seek the approval of the landlord. If we purchased our own house, we would have the freedom to design something that would suit our lifestyle and I could create something that felt a lot more like being at home,” she tells EdgeProp Singapore.
The detached house has four en suite bedrooms, three kitchens, a 10m pool, and ample space for entertainment.
One of Minter’s favourite spaces in the house is a corner that she converted into a quiet nook for reading. Overlooking greenery, the space can also be used as an additional bedroom if the need arises, she says.

On the top floor of the house, there is a covered lounge area with views of the landed housing estate.
As the family enjoys entertaining and has hosted up to 100 guests at some of their parties, Minter incorporated both outdoor and indoor dining spaces on the ground floor. The dining area inside the house features an open-concept kitchen complete with a quartz countertop kitchen island that was specially imported from Europe.

Feasting free and fun
