Property Summary


Gables is unique amongst five new detached luxurious houses that make up Hopton Court, a small and exclusive development in the highly sought after village of Ditcheat in the heart of Somerset. With two bedrooms on the ground floor, it has been designed as single storey living but with a bonus of a third bedroom/home office suite on the first floor. This fabulous home has been constructed using red brick with clay plain tiles distinguishing the roof. The quality of the build both inside and out is particularly impressive and typical of this developer’s attention to detail.

Gables is situated in a generous plot within Hopton Court set back from a quiet road that runs through the village. An attractive front door opens to a spacious hallway with access to a sumptuous kitchen/dining room, two bedrooms and a downstairs cloakroom. The kitchen itself is beautifully designed and comes with integrated Neff appliances, AEG full height fridge freezer and a five point induction hob. Caesarstone worktops marry with hand crafted and elegant units to create an air of understated luxury. Both the dining area and the sitting room feature fully glazed french doors that open to a delightful south facing garden. The entire ground floor is stylishly furnished with underfloor heating and a engineered oak floor.
An attractive flight of stairs leads to a primary bedroom suite complete with en-suite bathroom (with stand alone bathtub) and dressing room. All the bathrooms are lavishly equipped with high end fixtures and fittings, bespoke cabinetry and heated plumbed chrome towel rails.

All three bedrooms are generously proportioned and both ground floor bedrooms also come with en-suite bathrooms.
Impressive attention to detail along with contemporary interior design is evident throughout the house – engineered oak internal doors complement bespoke hand made oak cupboards and high performance timber windows. Recessed lighting along with bespoke painted light switches, and CAT 5 cabling throughout the house continue this theme. This is a beautifully constructed home built to the highest specifications and with unusually imaginative and contemporary interior design.


The house comes with a landscaped garden mostly laid to lawn and with pretty outlook. An impressive single carport built from an oak frame features a natural slate roof and Cedral weatherboard with a life expectancy of fifty years. A riven slate patio, beautiful dry stone walls and estate railing in the front courtyard are all testament to the overall quality of the build. Hopton Court is a haven of peace and tranquility but also offers the opportunity to live in the heart of a premium village and enjoy all the benefits of rural life.
