The lead singer of pop band Westlife, flew in from Ireland especially to visit Warlingham last week.

The Surrey fan joined friends at the launch of Parkview House, part of an exclusive, gated development by Vedere Properties in Littlewold Drive.

He fell in love with the mix of contemporary and period style in the show home, which has been furnished with original Art Deco furniture by The Design Gallery of Westerham.

Shane – who owns a property development company in Ireland with his eldest brother Finbarr – admired the Hercule Poirot-style cloudback lounge suite and an impressive Art Deco desk. “I love unusual furniture with great detailing. High quality pieces are important to me,” he said.

“It’s my family that makes a house a home,” Shane continued. “This house has an amazing kitchen, which is big enough for our three kids to be in, a great layout and wonderful light. I like the programmable acoustics system too!”.

The Littlewold development of three luxury homes is set in an unrivalled position high on the North Downs, offers panoramic, south-facing views across unspoilt countryside and Woldingham Golf Course. Parkview House is on the market at £2.3 million.

Littlewold Drive can be viewed by appointment through Fine and Country of Woldingham. The Design Gallery, run by John and Chrissie Masters, is based at 5 The Green, Westerham, Kent (01959 561234,
