The Cotswolds: arguably Britain's most quintessential countryside location, with its rolling hills, honey-hued houses, nature reserves and even some of the country’s greatest palaces and castles. This iconic hotspot certainly isn’t short of wonders to explore and this four bedroom, four bathroom luxury house, valued at a whopping £3,500,000, has instant access to it all. You can be in with a chance to win this incredible house, plus £100,000 in cash to help you settle in, simply by entering the Cotswolds House Draw, supporting the NSPCC.
This countryside retreat exudes contemporary luxury from the moment you’re welcomed through its grand, gated entrance and up the gravelled drive. With private grounds as lush and plentiful as the Cotswolds landscape, it’s no wonder this house was designed to capture those stunning views through the floor-to-ceiling windows spanning the rear exterior across both floors.
It’s hard not to feel at one with the world just beyond the window in this calming main bedroom, furnished and decorated to mirror the countryside surroundings. Whether you’re soaking in the double-ended, freestanding tub or relaxing in your spacious, walk-in shower, this luxury en suite is the perfect way to start your day. And, when you’re done, simply stroll back along your oak bedroom floorboards to find an impressive dressing room setup, fit to house even the most expansive wardrobe collections.
As you head out of your bedroom, ready to start the day, a striking staircase leads you from the bedroom floor to the grand entrance. And as you reach ground level, taking a slight turn to the right, you’re met immediately in the heart of the home: a welcoming, open plan kitchen/dining room that lets in light from every angle. With a full suite of integrated appliances, a spacious utility room and adjoining pantry, you have everything on hand for a blissful breakfast. And as you sit in the adjacent dining room, sipping on your coffee and buttering a croissant, you're perfectly positioned to take in the outdoor views through the sliding glass terrace doors that lead out onto the patio.
After you’ve taken your final sip and dusted off the croissant crumbs, it’s time to head through the Crittal dining room doors to this uniquely designed sitting room. With a sumptuous cream sofa, wood-burning fireplace, TV and sound system, and yet more floor-to-ceiling views of the rear garden and water feature, whether you have a few hours to take in a book, watch a film or simply enjoy a mid-morning siesta, this cosy corner is just the spot.
Replenished and raring to go, it’s time to hit the gym. Packed with high-end equipment, you can pick your pursuit of choice from a gentle row, relaxing yoga session, fast-paced bike class or even a weights routine, checking out your form in the mirrored walls around the room.
Ready to cool off? Well what better way to freshen up after a tiring workout than a dip in your own idyllic, private pool? Lounge on a float, soak up the rays and listen to the sounds of nature all around you — it’s time to relax, you’ve earned it.
As the afternoon draws in, why not invite some friends over? Whether it’s dining alfresco at your ten-seater table or enjoying a tipple in your luxury seating area, if it’s outdoor entertaining you’re after, there’s plenty of space to accommodate all.
With the sun setting, take your guests inside to enjoy this ultimate snug space. Sit back and let the L-shaped sofa envelop you, whilst the feature fireplace heats the room and the wall-mounted TV plays in the background. This room truly is a great place to watch movies, chill out and catch up with friends until the early hours.
And once the movie’s over, and your guests are ready to retire to any one of the spare en suite rooms, it’s time to head upstairs, turn out the lights and sleep serenely in the quiet of the countryside.
