Plot 1 is an elegant, 2-bedroom linked-detached single storey house, built 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, the front door opens directly into a magnificent open plan space that incorporates the kitchen and dining area and acts as the focal point of the house. Underfloor heating warms the room through a beautiful engineered oak floor and French doors lead to a pretty terrace constructed of Indian sandstone. A stylish kitchen incorporates a Belfast sink, a range of integrated appliances (including an oven, hob with induction technology, dishwasher, fridge and freezer) and state of the art Quartz Carrara work tops. The living area features a stylish Clearview wood burner and full height glazed doors allow natural light to pour into the room. Off a small hallway are the two good sized double bedrooms and a bathroom equipped with high end fixtures and fittings.
Please note that all the internal photos are of plot 3. Plot 1 will be be finished to the same specification.
The South facing garden to the rear of the house has been beautifully landscaped - mostly laid to lawn, it has lovely views of the pastures beyond its boundary. A small terrace offers the ideal spot for entertaining in privacy and tranquillity whilst Cotswold “shingle” gravel enhances the driveway at the front of the house. Discreet solar panels and a Mitsubishi Ecodan air source heat pump ensure running costs are low and that the house is environmentally friendly.
