The quaint two-bedroom stone cottage designs are available within the Silverlake Estate, a -hectare nature reserve and gated holiday home community, minutes from the Jurassic Coast. The semi-detached properties form part of the Baxter’s Rise village, which is based around a serene Nature & Sculpture Garden.
Homeowners will also be some of the very last people to gain access to the luxurious on-site Hurricane Spa, which is exclusively available for homeowners and guests within the first five villages. Other on-site facilities, include tennis courts, a terrace bar, MUGA court, forest playgrounds and nature trails. The properties are just a short stroll from the Estate’s largest lake, Wakeling Water, with its communal jetty that provides an entrance to the water for an array of water sports such as canoeing, paddleboarding and wild swimming.
Built around a communal outdoor kitchen and the homes all feature spacious open-plan living on the ground floor, with fully fitted kitchens and a lounge area with bifold doors that open out onto a private decking and garden area. On the first floor there are two good-sized bedrooms which benefit from an elevated ceiling that creates a spacious feel. Both rooms boast access to a south-facing balcony and built-in storage, whilst the master also features an en-suite bathroom.
The tax-friendly investment can also provide owners with a guaranteed minimum rental through the managed in-house holiday rental arm, The cost of £495,000** is made up of the freehold purchase of the plot of land, plus the construction and delivery of the property. As well as owning the freehold for the plot, homeowners benefit from reduced stamp duty, as this is only paid on the land value, and can benefit from zero-rated VAT on the new build construction contract.
On top of the seemingly endless supply of countryside and lakes on the private estate, owners also have direct access to a public nature reserve, Knighton Reserve, which was opened in May this year, and features dog walking trails, bird-watching lookouts and walking routes.
