Spacious, family living in a rural setting
Cathedral View, a new luxury home development in Scothern, offers purchasers quality as well as comfort for contemporary lifestyles.
The showhome is now open on this development, which will be a collection of 33 three, four and five-bedroomed family homes. Phase one and two are now available; homes which beautifully illustrate the craftsmanship, design and finish which is the hallmark of this scheme by Deer’s Leap Properties.
Cathedral View is the first exciting venture from Deer’s Leap, an impressive brand of house builders led by managing director, Matt Truelove who, at only 28, began the company after years of experience managing sites for his family business, Truelove Property and Construction Ltd. In association with Truelove Property, Deer’s Leap has over fifty years’ experience building homes across Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire and is dedicated to delivering an opulent specification with great design and attention to detail throughout all the properties on offer.
Newly released onto the market is the stunning five-bedroomed property on Plot 1, The Keadby. With its thoughtful design, grand features and meticulous attention to detail, this is a property where you’ll find yourself at home from the moment you walk through the door.
The main entrance hall features an elegant oak-vaulted staircase, and leads into a spacious open plan kitchen/diner – sure to be the heart of this home. The fully equipped Symphony kitchen – featuring quartz worktops, underfloor heating and double doors opening into a light, airy sunroom – is an ideal space for cooking, entertaining and relishing those family occasions. A generous living room, downstairs WC, functional utility room, and large integral, double garage make this a house designed with family life very much in mind.
Upstairs, five double bedrooms allow plenty of space for everyone to relax in comfort. A modern, stylish family bathroom features designer sanitaryware and an enclosed shower/bath where you can relax and unwind. Finally, en-suites to the master and second bedrooms contain contemporary Villeroy & Boch suites, including waterfall showers, wall-hung vanity units and luxurious heated towel rails.
Outside, a private enclosed lawn provides space to play, garden, or simply soak up the sun alongside your magnificent, fully-fitted family home.
Visitors to the showhome have already commented that the specification is the best they have seen, with bespoke kitchens by Lincoln based Krantz Designs, log burners from Welton based Ignite and underfloor heating as standard. Exposed brick fireplaces and beamed vaulted ceilings are designed to complement the traditional village setting.
Matt has primarily engaged with local tradesmen and craftsmen to create each beautiful home featuring stylish exteriors, contemporary interiors, fully fitted bespoke cabinets, luxury bathrooms with high quality suites and showers, log burners, private drives, double garages and generous landscaped gardens. He is ‘hands on’ on site on a daily basis organising trades, making sure everything is progressing smoothly and that the build specification is exceptional.
He said: “I try and oversee as much as I can from sales right through to setting out the houses. I think being a family business helps in that most suppliers are trying to do their best by you, as they know you personally.
“One of the valuable lessons I have learnt from my family and their experience as developers is the importance of attention to detail. I’m not an expert in any particular trade, although I’m a fairly good ground worker and bricklayer but I know the end result we want to achieve and appreciate the skills of all the different trades.
“I want to change people’s perception of new builds. Our interior specification beats that of any other housebuilder and we are building homes that customers can be really proud of with open-plan kitchen, diner and sun rooms. Our show house is the same specification as what we would build as standard, so when people walk around they aren’t greeted with the constant comment ‘that’s an extra’.”
Purchasers of homes at Cathedral View will certainly be benefitting not only from the tranquil location but also the easy access to, and in some cases, views of nearby Lincoln and the majestic cathedral.
The picturesque village of Scothern lies six miles from Lincoln, surrounded by countryside and giving ease of access to a wide range of city amenities and attractions. Within the village itself are a public house and restaurant, village hall, Grade II listed church and a number of good schools, leisure activities, peaceful walks and cycle paths. For commuters, the nearby Lincoln rail station provides regular services into London King’s Cross.
Matt concluded: “Cathedral View is set to be the most exciting development I have been a part of. We are delighted with the interest and feedback we have received so far, as we really wanted the quality of the homes to stand out, making sure to choose the perfect location and source only the best possible products to reflect this. Scothern is a beautiful village and many of the Deer’s Leap team have close ties to local communities in the area, so I’m looking forward to our homes becoming a part of that and adding to the village’s unique charm and character.”
