    About this property

    • Set within 0.4 acre of private landscaped gardens in this very selects enclave of Douglas, Sleepy Oaks is a superb example of a contemporary oak framed residence by arguably the most respected of companies, Border Oak.

      Crafted to create 4665 sq ft of accommodation mainly over two floors, a staircase accessed loft hobby room and a separate triple garage with a self contained apartment above, this is an exceptional home.

      Naturally there is a profusion of exposed oak, beamed or vaulted rooms, oak, terra cotta or natural stone floors, wood burning stoves, a hand painted bespoke kitchen with a professional Falcon range cooker and integrated appliances and bathrooms with Heritage sanitary ware.

      The style is based upon an Elizabethan Manor House and whilst the property is currently furnished in a very traditional style these properties work very well with a fusion of contemporary furniture.
