Guide price

Bedrooms: 5
The internal living space is incredibly light and spans over 5,600 sq ft across three storeys, with a verdant rural backdrop and views across the surrounding open countryside from each level. While the house occupies a sought-after rural location, London is easily reached with regular and direct rail services running from Kemble station into Paddington London.

The property is accessed via electronically operated gates with an 'in and out' driveway leading to an area of parking and a triple garage with tallet steps to a loft space over, with scope for ensuite facilities. This wonderfully contemporary Eco home is fitted with air source heating including an air ventilation and filtration system, and is a striking silhouette within this picturesque Cotswold landscape and offers ample space, bedrooms and storage, plus those somewhat ineffable qualities that make a house feel like a home.

The main ground floor living spaces are arranged in a predominantly open plan style, which has been designed to adapt with ease to both the practicalities of family life and social entertaining. Striking large window openings throughout create a visual connection to the surrounding countryside and gardens, and invites a wonderful quality of natural light to flood in during the day. The kitchen truly is the heart of this home, fitted with an excellent range of bespoke handcrafted units, a generous central island, and an all-important walk-in larder. The family area is positioned opposite, with access and fantastic views onto the terrace and gardens beyond. The rear entrance has been carefully thought through for rural living and leads directly into a large utility space with adjacent boot room and cloakroom. An inviting hallway forms a natural circulation point and creates a sense of flow to the layout and the visually arresting staircase ascends to the impressive galleried landing. The drawing room is beautifully proportioned and enjoys a triple aspect with double doors into the dining room. A fitted home office and second cloakroom complete the ground floor space.

Four ensuite bedrooms are located on the first floor with the main bedroom suite designed to include a walk-in closet and a luxurious bathroom, with an impressive double tub, twin sinks, and shower. The top floor of the house is currently arranged to include a fifth bedroom, bathroom with separate shower, and a large inter-connecting 'L' shaped space providing access to a room currently used for storage.

Outside

The terraces provide an ideal connection into the home, being perfectly placed for alfresco dining, leading seamlessly onto a wonderful expanse of level lawn. To the rear of these fully enclosed gardens is an area planted with an array of fruiting trees and bushes, arranged with raised beds ideal as a kitchen garden. There is also a wide range of outbuildings to include two stables, a workshop, open woodshed and timber triple garage, all further enhance by a characterful detached cottage with sitting room, kitchen and ensuite bedroom.
