Open-plan “super-rooms” come into their own at Christmas. These large, free-flowing spaces where families cook, eat, drink, relax together and entertain friends, help enhance the infectious seasonal spirit and overcome a host’s nightmare of guests wandering off into other rooms or blocking the stairs and hallway.

“Such spaces are always the hub of a home, whether a house or an apartment,” says Sean Ellis, managing director of developer St James, whose research shows open-plan living is home buyers’ number one design preference.

No longer does the dining room feature — modern lifestyles demand more flexible interiors. Buyers are encouraged in this by popular television cooking programmes that feature celebrity chefs in their  own kitchens, promoting the concept of relaxed home entertaining.

Open-plan family spaces at Marryat Place, Wimbledon, combine all the key elements, including champagne fridges and flat-screen TVs. A double-height glass atrium throws in light, and bi-folding doors open on to a terrace and garden to form a year-round attractive backdrop.

The scheme comprises a group of large townhouses with up to six bedrooms, set in a private cul-de-sac close to the All England Club and Wimbledon Village centre. Prices from £2.65 million. Call 020 3697 9330.
