About this property

  • Set within the highly sought after Nadder Valley village of Donhead St. Andrew, Hersanmine is a truly exceptional property, both inside and out, nestled into an enviable plot within a Conservation Area and surrounded by beautiful countryside.

    Offering over 2,600 sq. ft of flexible, high-quality accommodation, this attractive Eco Home was built of stone under a slate roof in 2018, and finished to an exceptional standard. Designed by Western Design Architects, stone from the original house was reused for the ground floor to create a 'solid' base to the house. The first floor is clad in timber to give a lightweight feel. Full height slit windows run along the road elevation, influenced by traditional agricultural buildings, whilst the rear elevation looks out across fields, with large expanses of glazing.

    Positioned to take best advantage of the sun and views, the owners had significant input into the design and construction, with personal touches throughout. Examples include the front door, which has optional thumb print recognition and there is a Lutron control system throughout.

    The ground floor is arranged to provide four bedrooms and three bath or shower rooms. The spacious principal bedroom occupies one end of the house, complete with a walk-in dressing area and beautifully appointed en suite bathroom. There is also a utility room, with side door out to the parking area and double garage.

    On the first floor is a superb, full-length and open plan living space, measuring over 50' in length, that incorporates a kitchen, sitting and dining areas. The room has polished concreate floors and a bi-folding doors stretching the entire length of the room. There is also a study area to one end, with a separate closed off pantry/food preparation area behind the main kitchen. Spanning the full length of this room, a balcony provides a wonderful space to enjoy the far-reaching views and really provides the “wow” factor when entertaining friends and family. Steps lead down to the garden and terrace below.

    Externally, the gardens and outside compliment this amazing property perfectly. There are lovely rural views of rolling countryside from the rear of the house; the first floor balcony provides a fantastic place on which to relax and soak the views up. In addition, a fantastic terrace wraps around the rear aspect of the property, providing all ground floor rooms with direct access to the outdoors. A beautifully maintained and well-established lawn encloses the terrace and runs around the property, bordered by traditional parkland fencing. There are spacious areas to entertain, BBQ and enjoy each season throughout the year. The double garage has power, lighting and access to water, with off-street parking in front.

I love the stylish interiors at Hersanmine - contemporary Nadder Valley at its very best.
