About this property

  • Damson House is an exceptional contemporary property, occupying a generous plot on this exclusive development. Constructed in 2009, the development comprises six detached luxury homes. Each home was individually designed in a contemporary style that exudes quality and elegance. Each of the houses have a 1/6 share of the orchard which runs to approximately 1.5 acres and envelopes the development and gives direct access to Bannerdown Common and the surrounding countryside.

    Damson House has been the subject of significant improvement by the current owners. The entire property commands an exceptionally high level of finish and all improvements, both decorative and structural have been executed with flawless taste and real attention to detail. The ultra-contemporary styling is complemented by natural materials.

    Outside the property has a mixture of natural stone and cedar wood. There are solid oak windows and external doors with polished chrome ironmongery and the external balconies have toughened glass with stainless steel fixings and posts.

    Internally the proportions are excellent and rooms of note include the spectacular kitchen/dining/family room with its double height ceiling increases the feeling of space and light. The central stone chimney is a striking feature which creates a soft divide between the family room and kitchen. The kitchen is very well equipped with an array of state of the art appliances and sleek granite work surfaces. The drawing room has a stone fireplace and two sets of doors lead to the garden. Double doors from the kitchen lead into the formal dining room which also enjoys high ceilings and doors that lead to the garden. Also at ground floor level is a study, shower room and large and well-appointed utility room. There is Porcelenosa floor tiling in the kitchen and utility room and engineered oak flooring to the hallway from which an oak staircase with glass balustrade rises to the first floor.

    At first floor level there is a luxurious principal suite with en suite bathroom, dressing area and balcony. There is a principal guest bedroom with balcony and en suite facilities, three further bedrooms (two sharing an en suite shower room) and a family bathroom. All of the bath/ shower rooms are beautifully appointed with high quality furnishings.

    Outside
    Damson House enjoys views from the front of the property towards Bathampton and the surrounding countryside whilst to the rear there is a pleasant outlook over the orchard. The property is approached via an automatic five-bar gate with a driveway that provides access to the double garage and extensive parking. The gardens have been the subject of significant landscaping. There are level areas of garden which are in the main laid to lawn. There is a terrace immediately to the front of the property whilst a further terrace provides a superb outside seating and dining area.

    Damson House succeeds in retaining its charm and style whilst providing excellent accommodation for modern day family living.

I really like the spectacular contemporary accommodation and the rare benefit that Damson House has of immediate access to a privately owned residents' orchard.
