Beautifully presented single-storey house in a superb rural position with far-reaching views.
Deer's Leap is a beautifully presented single storey property, situated in a wonderful rural position adjacent to farmland. The property has a generous footprint, extending to approximately 2,410 sq ft, and has an appealing exterior with brick elevations under a tiled roof. The property was acquired by the current owners in 2013, and has been cleverly extended to create a wonderful detached home with well-appointed accommodation that more than meets modern expectations of comfort and style. The floorplans give an excellent overview of the layout, which has been cleverly designed with the property's setting in mind: full height windows frame the views and ensure plenty of light, and there are double glazed hardwood bi-fold doors from the principal bedroom, the third bedroom/study, the sitting room and the dining room, creating an excellent flow between inside and out.
Of particular note is the triple aspect sitting room which has bi-fold doors to the east garden, and a woodburning stove; there are contemporary internal Crittall-style glazed doors to the dining room, a recent addition with a soaring vaulted ceiling and doors to the south facing brick-paved terrace, which is an excellent space for entertaining. The dining room is open to the kitchen; both rooms are fitted with an excellent range of handcrafted, bespoke solid wood units, painted pale blue and complemented by pale Silestone countertops, with a central island. Appliances include a Mercury induction range, Fisher and Paykel fridge/freezer, Fisher and Paykel wine cooler and a Miele dishwasher.
The principal bedroom suite has fitted wardrobes, full height windows to east and south with plantation shutters and a stunning luxury Lusso en suite bathroom, with freestanding contemporary oval bath, walk in shower and vanity unit with a pair of basins. There are two further bedrooms, one with an en suite shower room and one served by a separate shower room.
The property is approached via a private road, with a cattle grid over the entrance to the track which skirts the farmland and leads to Deer's Leap. An electronically operated five bar gate opens to the gravelled driveway which has plenty of space for parking ahead of the house and detached two bay garage, which has power and water connected.
The gardens lie mainly to the south and east of the house; the herringbone brick south terrace has a pergola, up lighting and electric points and is a superb spot for enjoying the gardens and their surroundings. To the east of the house is a picturesque courtyard with an olive tree planted, and beyond lies the large pond. The reminder of the garden is mainly laid to lawn, with mature trees planted at intervals and sections of wild meadow for interest; the gardens are fully enclosed by hedging and post and rail fencing. In all, about 1.17 acres.
