Property Summary

Fairview is one of five new detached luxurious family houses that make up Hopton Court, a small and exclusive development in the highly sought after village of Ditcheat in the heart of Somerset. Each of these fabulous homes have been constructed using locally quarried Sherborne Marble natural stone with natural slate distinguishing the roofs. An oak framed porch graces the front façade of the building and is reflected in elegantly designed garaging adjacent to the building. The quality of the build both inside and out is particularly impressive and typical of this developer’s attention to detail.

Fairview is situated in a generous corner plot within Hopton Court and well back from a quiet road that runs through the village. An attractive front door opens to a magnificent hallway (lit by some stylish hanging lights) with a cloakroom and access to a sumptuous kitchen/dining room, sitting room and office. The kitchen itself is beautifully designed and comes with integrated Neff appliances, double AEG full height fridge and freezer, two slide and hide ovens, a five point induction hob and a state of the art extractor incorporated into a stylish island. Caesarstone worktops marry with hand crafted elegant units to create an air of understated luxury. Off the kitchen is a well-equipped and spacious utility room with direct access to the garden. Both the dining area and the sitting room feature fully glazed french doors that open to a delightful south facing terrace that makes the most of stunning views of the countryside beyond. A log burner sits in the sitting room chimney breast beneath a charming Bath Stone surround and hearth. The entire ground floor is stylishly furnished with underfloor heating and a combination of engineered oak parquet flooring and bespoke binding sisal.

Upstairs is equally impressive with a spacious primary bedroom suite complete with en-suite bathroom and dressing room accompanies three further bedrooms (one with an en-suite bathroom) and a family bathroom. All the bathrooms are lavishly equipped with high end fixtures and fittings, bespoke cabinetry and flush fit wall hung sanitaryware. All the bedrooms are generously proportioned (one with built in wardrobes) and have lovely views of the gardens outside.
Impressive attention to detail along with contemporary interior design is evident throughout the house – engineered oak internal doors and hardwood handrails with turned spindles on the staircase complement natural stone windowsills 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 family home built to the highest specifications and with unusually imaginative and contemporary interior design.


The house comes with a landscaped, south facing garden mostly laid to lawn and with pretty views of the countryside. An impressive double 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.
