About this property

  • The property is undoubtedly one of the finest on this exclusive lakeside estate. Not only does it offer over 5000 square feet of luxury accommodation but it also occupies an enviable position with a panoramic lake view.

    The house was built in 2019 to an individual design. It was completed to an excellent level of specification throughout, includes bespoke kitchen and bathrooms, and is flooded with natural daylight. The house is also one of a very small number on the estate that benefits from a heated swimming pool within the lake front decking.

    The overwhelming impact on entering the house is one of extraordinary space and light. Not only are all rooms of very generous size but the height of the ceilings is also impressive. Light and airiness are guaranteed by the ‘walls of glass' which ensure views from nearly every angle. The kitchen/dining/sitting room extends the full width of the house and includes an inset wood burning fireplace at one end. From the sitting area there is access into the snug room with direct access onto the front terrace. On the opposite side of the house and off the kitchen is a utility room with outside door.

    From the spacious reception hall a staircase rises to the first floor where there are five en suite bedrooms. The two principal bedrooms are of equal size, incorporate bathrooms and dressing rooms as well as enjoying the panoramic lake aspect. The other three bedrooms have en suite shower rooms, and all have Juliette balconies.

    On the second floor there is a wonderful entertaining space with views of farmland to the rear. Forming part of the space is a bar with dumb waiter rising from the kitchen. There is also a separate study and cloakroom. Wrapped around the room is the terrace which is designed to take advantage of the sun throughout the day. There is also an aluminium pergola with electric retractable sides and roof. A built in store room is tucked away in one corner..

    The house is set within 0.23 acres with a lawned garden, private parking area, a bike store, and an electric car charging point. The extensive terracing on the lakeside incorporates a heated swimming pool, hot tub, lower decking and a landing stage. Being on the periphery of the estate the property is away from the main thoroughfares.
