Full description

Truly, there can be fewer lovelier places to live than this! If the wish list for your new home includes a luxurious home in a safe, friendly community surrounded by spectacular scenery and all played out to a soundtrack of babbling brooks and birdsong, then this is the home for you.

Standing on your own private decking, you will appreciate the natural beauty all around you. The Merebrook development has won the David Bellamy Gold Conservation Award 7 years in a row. This award recognises ‘green champions’ and is testament to the care taken by the owners and community to protect the local environment.

The home itself stands on a prominent plot and we love the large open-plan lounge and kitchen, which itself leads out onto the expansive decking area. Light floods into the open-plan living area from all angles, “bringing the outside in” and the Velux roof window enhances this feeling. The views are simply stunning throughout the seasons.

Quality finishes in the kitchen and bathrooms, together with the huge double shower, give the home a modern, sleek feel.

That all-important factor of storage has been well thought-out, with plenty of kitchen space, built-in bedroom wardrobes, bathroom cabinets and a large outdoor shed too.

This is a home that has a lovely spacious feel throughout and also gives you every opportunity to take advantage of outdoor dining, reading and relaxing.

On site, there is a free allotment and free fishing rights on the River Derwent, which runs gently through the Merebrook site. Dinners could take on a truly locally-sourced flavour!
