Located in the village of Leigh on Mendip, this three-bedroom home is part of the Apple Meadow View development. Designed with sustainability in mind, the property features modern amenities and sits on a generous corner plot with views of the surrounding countryside.
It's on the market with our sponsor, Osborne and Osborne, for £625,000.
The entrance hall leads to the principal rooms of the house. The kitchen is fitted with high-specification wall and base cabinets, complemented by a quartz worktop and built-in AEG appliances. A central island serves as a breakfast bar, dividing the kitchen from the dining and living area. Bi-folding doors provide access to the patio, making the space suitable for alfresco dining.
Adjacent to the kitchen is a laundry room, equipped with additional cabinets and a sink, offering a separate access point to the property.
The house includes three double bedrooms, two with en-suite shower rooms, as well as a family bathroom featuring a low-level WC, wash hand basin, bath, and walk-in shower.
The property benefits from a large corner plot, providing ample parking for 4 to 6 cars. The garden, accessible through gates on either side of the house, is mainly laid to lawn with a patio area. Environmental features such as a bee block and bat boxes are integrated into the property, based on recommendations from a specialist consultant.
Sustainability is a key focus of the Apple Meadow development. Features include solar panels with battery storage, a rainwater harvesting system, upgraded insulation, and underfloor heating throughout the property, powered by an air-sourced heat pump.
The property is situated in Leigh on Mendip, a village within the Mendip hills, offering a balance between community living and natural surroundings. With its focus on environmental sustainability and modern amenities, this home in Apple Meadow View serves as an option for those looking for contemporary living in a rural setting.
