    About this property

    • This superb contemporary family home is a testament to luxurious living in a serene rural setting. With stunning panoramic views that stretch as far as the eye can see, this property offers the perfect blend of tranquillity and modern sophistication. Spanning an impressive 5,700 square feet, this magnificent home is a masterpiece of design and craftsmanship. Built by The Green Oak Company, renowned for their exceptional attention to detail, the construction of this residence is a testament to their expertise.

      This eco-friendly residence has been thoughtfully designed with sustainability in mind. The ground source heat pump and private water source ensure ultra-low running costs while reducing the environmental impact. Planning permission for solar panels is in place, further enhancing the property's green credentials.

      As you step inside, you'll be greeted by a grand entrance hall that sets the tone for the elegance and style found throughout. The interior boasts state-of-the-art fixtures and fittings. At the heart of this exceptional residence lies an exquisite 900 sq. ft "Devol" kitchen, meticulously designed and equipped with elegant and stylish fittings as well as the latest high-end appliances and a pantry just off. The adjoining dining area is triple aspect with panoramic views across rolling Somerset countryside.

      Flanking the other side of a secluded south-facing terrace courtyard, the drawing room is also triple aspect, with a deep, stone fireplace with log-burner. There is a further sitting room, with stone fireplace and log-burner, whilst a further family room provides another reception room; note that with the original planning, this was proposed as a fifth bedroom. There is a large guest cloakroom alongside. The utility room lies off the kitchen and has a side door to the garden, with a plant room and further WC.

      Upstairs, the galleried landing provides a spacious and light-filled area for either play or relaxation, with fantastic views over the garden, lake and countryside beyond. The principal bedroom has a vaulted ceiling, French doors out to a private balcony and an en suite bathroom, also with vaulted ceiling and a free-standing bathtub. A second bedroom similarly has a vaulted ceiling and en suite shower room. Two further bedrooms share the family shower room.

      Set within about 24.8 acres, this property offers privacy and tranquillity. The approach through tall stone pillars and gates is impressive, with ample gravelled parking to the front and side of the house. A spur off the drive leads up to a former farmhouse, now with formal planning use as an agricultural barn - please ask the selling agents for more details.

      Although still maturing, the meticulously landscaped gardens provide a picturesque backdrop, ideal for enjoying outdoor activities or simply soaking in the beauty of nature. The owners have started to create a kitchen garden with raised beds. The views are simply outstanding and there is a large lake at one end of the grounds. With ample space for further landscaping, the potential to create your own private oasis is unmatched. During the summer months there are cut paths through the meadow grass around the grounds, whilst beyond this lie two fields providing about 11 acres of pasture.

      To the south of the house, there is a further large modern agricultural barn measuring 60' x 38', whilst the timber-framed garage has one secure bay and two open parking bays. Accessed externally, there is an open plan studio above spanning the full length of the building.

    I have been doing this job for nearly 20 years and this has to be one of the best modern country houses I have seen, both in terms of interior design and location - the views are sensational.
