Sitting on the banks of the Estate's newest lake, Minety, Mallards Way is a beautiful modern 'skydeck' property with direct lake access and your very own private jetty from which to launch your kayaks and paddleboards. With 360-degree panoramic views from the 'skydeck', the impressive rooftop also boasts its very own hot tub.... WOW!


GROUND FLOOR: Mallards Way is an uber modern 4-bed home that has everything you need for contemporary living. The modernist cube design of this property provides the perfect haven of comfort, tranquillity, and sophistication. With a stylishly designed open plan layout, you'll find a living space centred around a Scandinavian wood burner for those cosy winter evenings! A modern, well-equipped, and appointed kitchen with adjacent breakfast bar, and a dining area with seating for 8. The floor to ceiling doors span the entire width of the lodge and frame the picturesque Minety Lake views. Leading directly out onto the ground floor terrace and garden area, this extension creates a wonderful sense of outdoor living in style - perfect for entertaining guests or just relaxing in the warm summer sun. A private pontoon at the end of the garden offers direct lake access from which to launch those paddleboards and kayaks before exploring Minety Lake and the wider estate. A double bedroom on the ground floor - with wardrobes and use of an adjacent and accessible shower room - offers something to families and friends with the need to have a ‘same floor living’ arrangement for those with mobility issues.

FIRST FLOOR: The remaining 3 bedrooms are all on the first floor of the property. Bedroom 2 is a twin room with 2 full size single beds (as standard), or on request can be zipped together to create a super king bed. The room has integrated wardrobes and a lovely balcony from which to sit out and enjoy the tranquillity of the early mornings or the peaceful summer evenings overlooking the still Minety Lake. Bedroom 3 has a king size bed and integrated wardrobes and a further balcony. Both bedrooms have large floor to ceiling windows through which to watch the world go by from bed, and have use of the adjacent family bathroom with bathtub and shower. The final bedroom is also a king room with integrated wardrobes and further picture frame floor to ceiling window and sliding door out onto first floor balcony overlooking Minety Lake. An ensuite shower room completes this room.

SECOND FLOOR: An amazing horizontal and full-length glass roof door opens at the press of a button... Up the stairs you go before stepping out onto the stunning ‘skydeck’ that offers 360-degree panoramic views over Minety Lake, the surrounding village, and including the site of special scientific interest (SSSI), Swillbrook Lake. With additional outdoor sofas and alfresco dining space, this really is the most spectacular feature of the entire home… due, in part, to the private (and almost secret…) hot tub that sits proudly upon the roof terrace – just WOW.
