School Lane, Peatling Magna LE8 See map

Peatling End is approached via a quiet lane and is identified by its striking modernist faade, featuring large, glazed panels edged in black, timber cladding, and expanses of white render. Electric gates open onto a generous courtyard with parking for multiple vehicles and an electric charging point. The property is a recent inventive renovation of a late 1960’s/ early 70’s design, originally created by architect Douglas H Smith, and offers approximately 4000 sq.ft of sociable living spaces across three levels. It sits on a private plot of approximately 1⁄2 acre which wraps around the property and offers stylish terraces, an outside kitchen, and views over open countryside.

The main entrance is set under a suspended timber and metal awning and is accessed via an oversized hardwood pivot front door. Inside, a sky-lit lofty atrium with micro cement flooring and whitewashed brick walls awaits. The internal spaces are playful and dynamic, with abundant natural light streaming through doors, windows, and glazed roof sections, creating a seamless connection with the outdoors.

A short flight of stairs leads to the spacious main living area, featuring an open-plan layout that creates a sociable and seamless flow to the garden. Full height glazed bi-fold doors open onto a West facing terrace with an outdoor kitchen. The interior of the house showcases carefully curated materials, including warm micro cement floors, and thin ash boards on the ceilings. The kitchen area features a large island with ash cabinetry, open shelving, and ripple glass-fronted cupboards. Overhead is an exposed steel beam and stained timber joists, whilst at the centre of the space, a vast chimney houses a dual sided fireplace.

The large lounge on the raised ground floor is nestled in a quiet corner, offering large dual aspect windows that overlook the garden. Additionally, there is a second generous reception room used as a dining room, spacious enough to accommodate a lounge area, and enjoying dual aspect windows and a contemporary style fireplace.

Another large living space is accessible directly from the entrance atrium. With large openings that overlook the entrance courtyard. Behind this room lies the guest bedroom, which opens onto a private sunken terrace. The bedroom features a Jack and Jill shower with a long trough basin on one side and a separate WC and fitted cupboards on the other. These two spaces could serve well as an independent annexe or workspace, subject to obtaining the necessary planning consent.

A bespoke Oak staircase, framed by vertical black timber struts, ascends to a striking glass and steel bridge. This bridge connects to a spacious landing featuring Oak-boarded walls and flooring, offering a versatile area suitable for a quiet sitting space or study. Beyond the landing are three bedrooms and a shower room. The dual aspect master bedroom shares the same material palette and features white plastered walls and black window trims. The main bedroom also enjoys and ensuite shower room with a walk-in shower and his and hers wash hand basins. The two additional bedrooms are both doubles, offering views over the rear garden, and share a shower room located between the two rooms.

The property is located within beautifully landscaped private gardens spanning approximately 1/2 acre, which envelop the property. The gardens feature specimen trees providing shaded retreats, mature shrubs, and well-tended borders. Overlooking open countryside, the garden provides a serene backdrop. A concrete terrace extends from the house, hosting an outdoor cooking area complete with a built-in barbeque and stone pizza oven, ideal for alfresco dining experiences.
