Opening his front door to yet more guests, property expert Rizz admits he chose his Herbert Road home as much for entertaining as for family life.
He and his wife Sabiha believe a home is for enjoying - and they love nothing more than sharing their cutting edge minimalist Huf Haus with friends.
Today their breathtaking home has five bedrooms, four reception rooms and a fabulous leisure complex, complete with infinity pool, steam room and gym. It also has a separate one bedroom annexe.
We love open plan homes that we can walk about and feel around us, he explained. We both also believe homes are for enjoying and sharing with friends. We built this home with intention of having lots of people in it, and we often have well in excess of 150 here.
It was in 2005 that the couple first came to look at the site. Rizz remembers how it was snowing, and the gardens looked like a picture postcard.
The old garden had curved paths and round flowerbeds. We loved it and decided to buy the house, he recalled.
But after his plans to extend the existing home were rejected, he and Sabiha decided to move in a completely different direction.
I saw a Huf Haus and found the whole idea of building one here completely intriguing. The style was absolutely fantastic and I knew how good the German building work would be, he said. These houses are amazing. And they feel just as great in the winter as in the summer.
LIGHT AND OPEN
The planners came on board too and soon the old bungalow-style home was taken down and the new house arrived from Germany ready to be put together on site.
It was everything we hoped it would be - light, open and very beautiful, he said.
As well as incorporating open family and guest areas, the house was designed to ensure everyone had their own spaces.
I love my pool and spa area - that is where I go to unwind, he said. I also have my own living room where I can relax quietly.
He went on: My wife loves her kitchen. She also likes the bedroom, with its bathroom and walk-in wardrobe, where she can keep all her handbags and shoes.
The children have their own reception room, where they can play on their games consoles, use computers and watch television.
We also have an office room next to it, where they can do their homework or I can work, he said.
The dining area has a double height ceiling, and doors that lead out onto a terrace where guests can enjoy evening drinks.
The flow through the house and out into the garden makes entertaining easy, with a number of glass doors allowing the house to open up beautifully on to its garden.
The expert advice of an interior designer helped the couple bring the various spaces together. Upstairs and down, the house now blends the simple and contemporary with the more opulent.
We have enjoyed being here so much, said Rizz. Although after building the Huf Haus, we did realise it did not work very well within the old garden we had been so attracted to, so we had it re-landscaped to fit in.
He went on: We love this house so much that when we are away, we often feel like we just want to come home!
If we could build this all again when we move, then we would.
Commanding remote security gates open to reveal an impressive and sleek home. Completed approximately one year ago this state of the art house radiates the true meaning of the word contemporary. Stepping through the front door the opulence and minimalist feel is immediately apparent, with a huge abundance of space and vast amounts of natural light flooding through. A glass sided staircase rises to the upper floor where the cutting edge style continues. Located off the hallway there are numerous breathtaking rooms including a magnificent dining room which boasts a double height ceiling and a beautiful crystal chandelier creating a stunning focal point, an excellent space for entertaining guests. You will find two elegant sitting rooms, one which has been designed as an area for children or younger teenagers to play computer games and relax with friends, while the other enjoys views over the rear garden and terrace.
At the heart of the home is the stunning Pedini kitchen which offers dual cookers and a warming draw and plenty of storage and space to prepare meals. Further ground floor rooms include the office/study, ideal for those wanting to work from home and a ground floor cloakroom finished to an extremely high standard.
On the first floor there are five glorious bedrooms each presented to a superb standard. The master bedroom is finished with layered textures of gold silk, satin and leather giving it a truly glamorous feel. The en-suite has twin basins and a bath with colour changing mood lighting adding to the alluring appeal. Additionally there is a separate shower with an intricate design and a dazzling finish and a well proportioned dressing room. Moving on, the second bedroom is completed to a similar standard as that of the master with a balcony and en-suite bathroom with Armani tiles. The three remaining bedrooms are all of a good size with two offering en-suite facilities.
SETTING THE SCENE
The carefully landscaped gardens have been cleverly designed to incorporate a number of different seating areas.
Palm and other exotic trees bring a warm, almost holiday feel to the outdoor areas.
We love being outside. We have recently ordered some new loungers for the terrace, he said.
The house is great for entertaining and there is plenty of space both inside and out.
In the summer, we are outside a lot with friends. When we have big parties there is room to set up a number of tables on the lawn.
There is also a fabulous leisure complex with an infinity pool and steam room, a haven in which to relax and unwind.

I work in the East End, and it takes me about 20 to 25 minutes to get to work.
The M25 and Gatwick Airport can also be accessed easily.
From the Gallows Corner roundabout proceed down the A127 towards Southend. At the first set of traffic lights turn right into Ardleigh Green Road.
