A contemporary home with annexe dwelling, showcasing sustainable credentials, set in 10.8 acres

Oaklands offers an exquisite, state of the art family home built in 2022 and is one of the very few country homes with an EPC rating of A, in excess of 100, with its inception founded on sustainability and responsible construction methods. Light-filled, versatile interiors provide an airy, open ambience with rooms featuring picture windows allowing views which connect to the surrounding terrain. The generous reception hall features a striking walnut bespoke floating staircase setting the tone for the stylish design and presentation on offer. Ground floor reception areas comprise a sitting room, formal dining room, a study and a flexible use play room, whilst at its heart is an impressive kitchen/living area which provides a relaxed, sociable hub. Fitted with Porcelanosa cabinets and integrated Miele appliances, including two conventional ovens, microwave oven, six ring induction hob with extractor over, two Blanco sinks (one with top range Quooker tap), fridge/freezer and wine coolers, the kitchen features an island unit and two sets of glazed doors to the outside terracing. The ground floor has Rako lighting, which can be controlled remotely, at home or away. The first floor offers five bedrooms, each with luxurious en suite facilities. Two of these rooms provide access to a south-east-facing balcony. Ancillary space is provided by an upper level laundry room and a lower level utility room, and completing the accommodation is a versatile gym room and two cloakrooms. A supplementary two-bedroom annexe dwelling complements the stylish-presentation of the main house. The home runs on solar power, with PV panels providing energy during the day. Excess energy is stored in two Solar Edge batteries, which discharge to provide power for night time use and the cycle begins again the next day. Heating and hot water is provided by a pair of air source heat pumps; the central heating is underfloor to the whole ground floor, with contemporary radiators fitted throughout the first floor. Five wood burning stoves are fitted throughout the ground floor.

The garden at Oaklands has been designed and landscaped to provide a luxuriant outdoor sanctuary, with decked sun platforms, a splendid 17m x 6m luxury pool with lighting and electric solar heat generating cover, backed up by an air source heat pump which provides year-round heating, and is surrounded by limestone flooring. There are expanses of lawn, timber edged raised planters, gravel pathways and a naturalistic, wildflower meadow. Beyond the immediate garden, the acreage offers a variety of opportunities, including provision of paddocks for equestrian-enthusiasts.
