Ducklings is a property that simply oozes relaxation! Set on the highly desirable Clearwater Estate and enjoying the benefits of the magnificent Artspa, this large and spacious house is a superb choice for families and groups alike. Furnished and styled in a cool, modernist fashion, the home has been created with one eye firmly on the wider environment. Natural light is everywhere, the muted decor is deeply restful, and with so many open glazed areas, the internal spaces simply feel vast! We really like this property - it gives a lovely and welcoming sense when you're inside.
