Plot 7 is an elegant, 4-bedroom detached family house, built in 2018 to the highest specifications and with exceptional attention to detail. One of seven houses and situated within a small and exclusive development, it has been thoughtfully designed and built by an experienced developer in a charming rural location on the edge of the pretty village of Leigh on Mendip. Only the highest quality building materials have been used and include beautiful Purbeck stone from the Jurassic coast in Dorset and local Doulting stone that blends effortlessly with stunning larch wood cladding and touches of oak. Every aspect of this pretty house, both inside and out, exudes an atmosphere of quality and understated luxury.
On the ground floor, a sheltered porch lit by some striking Nordlux lights opens to a spacious hallway with stairs that run up to an attractive landing. To the left is a magnificent kitchen / diner that acts as the focal point of the house. An elegant slate floor runs the length of the room and French doors lead to a beautifully constructed Indian sandstone terrace. A “Neptune” kitchen incorporates a double Belfast sink, a range of integrated NEF appliances, a “falcon” semi-professional cooker with induction technology and state of the art Quartz Carrara work tops. The dining area is delightful and only enhanced when the French doors are fully opened, almost bringing the garden into the room... this is the ideal space to entertain in style as well as the perfect place for dinner with the family. Off the kitchen is a superb sitting room with a stylish Clearview wood burner. Full height glazed doors allow natural light to pour into the room highlighting the beautiful engineered oak floor. Off the hallway is also a cloakroom, and a fully equipped utility room with access to the garage adjacent to the house.
Upstairs, a master bedroom suite, three further bedrooms and a family bathroom all run from a spacious landing. The master suite is impressive with good South West facing views over the surrounding fields and custom built wardrobes. The en-suite bathroom is beautiful with porcelain tiles underfoot, and a Merlyn walk in shower. Catalano basins and loos, and heated towel rails typify the end high fixtures and fittings to be found in both bathrooms. The attic space offers additional an additional storage.
The South West facing garden extends around three sides of the property and has been beautifully landscaped - mostly laid to lawn, it is set out over two tiers and features a fine, dry stone wall that runs its entire length. A large terrace offers the ideal spot for entertaining in privacy and tranquillity. A well finished single garage adjoins the house and Cotswold heritage “shingle” gravel enhances the driveways. Discreet solar panels and a Mitsubishi Ecodan air source heat pump ensure running costs are low and that the house is environmentally friendly.
