Number 5 is an elegant 4-bedroom semi-detached family homes, built to the highest specifications and with exceptional attention to detail. One of seven properties situated within a small and exclusive development. This house has been thoughtfully designed and built by an experienced developer in a charming rural location on the edge of the pretty village of Leigh Upon 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 hallway with stairs that run up to an attractive landing. Off the hall is a magnificent open plan space that incorporates the kitchen and dining area and acts as the focal point of the house with beautiful engineered oak flooring. A stylish kitchen incorporates a Belfast sink, a range of integrated appliances, a cooker and hob with induction technology and state of the art Quartz Carrara work tops. The living area features a stylish Clearview wood burner and full height glazed bi-fold doors allow natural light to pour into the room leading to a pretty terrace constructed of Indian sandstone. Off the hallway is also a cloakroom, and a fully equipped utility room with access to the garage adjacent to the house. This decorated garage has the potential to be converted to a further reception room subject to planning.
Upstairs, a master bedroom suite, three further bedrooms and a family bathroom all run from the landing. The master suite is impressive with good South West facing views over the surrounding fields. The en-suite bathroom is beautiful with porcelain tiles underfoot, and a walk in Merlyn shower. Laufen 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 storage facility.
The South facing garden to the rear of the house has been landscaped and mostly laid to lawn. 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.
