Stir from your beauty sleep to the gentle babble of flowing water as your sculptural Lefroy Brooks bath, an art deco inspired masterpiece of aerodynamic curves, slowly fills on the far side of a wooden screen behind your green velvet bed. Recline in its steaming waters, among handfuls of fresh, crimson rose petals, and watch the growing light of day rising over the Cotswolds through your window.
This immaculate en suite of reclaimed wood and sleek natural stone, in every shade of neutral, is softened by linen at its windows and a seagrass rug underfoot. Soak awhile, then dress for comfort and pad downstairs, barefoot. Each step onto your reclaimed oak boards with underfloor heating, is a quiet reminder that this luxurious home is one that’s thoughtfully designed to love you back.
Someone’s been busy in the kitchen, preparing a Valentine’s breakfast. Pink roses, poised in a vase, bloom by the garden window, on a bespoke unit of whitewashed oak. Croissants, fresh fruits of the forest, hot coffee and other delights await you on the veined stone island - its subtly striped countertop polished to reflective perfection. Perch side by side on elegant, tall stools and enjoy the elusive gift of hiding the clocks and making time for one another.
Your spectacularly vaulted, first floor, dual-aspect reception room spans the entire depth of the house offering views to both the north east and south west. Two can relax at opposite ends of this lounge, embracing the space as distinct halves of one whole - or join to watch the sun rise over ancient woodland from one window and, later, set beneath it through another. Choose from a velvet sofa with rounded sides reaching out to envelop you, or a generous cream couch by the stone and glazed brick-tiled fireplace. In the lounge, a palette of blues, greens and cool mineral tones, and textures of wood and wool, weave nature’s invigorating energy into luxury comfort.
As dusk settles in, a familiar voice calls you downstairs to the dining table, now lit by tapered candles and a delicate, brass pendant light with two elegant outstretched arms balanced in perfect equilibrium. Through discreet, state-of-the art Bowers and Wilkins speakers, your favourite songs play, as you sit down at upholstered wooden chairs and begin a feast made just for you. Candlelight illuminates the sweeping grain of this sleek dining table and chairs, an indulgent cheese board and, most importantly, your loved one’s smiling face.
After dinner, you open the minimalist folding doors behind you and step out together into your landscaped garden, to a backdrop of intricate tree silhouettes. Under soft blankets, with February’s cool kiss on your cheek and a swirling, hot chocolate in hand, you relax on woven, rattan furniture, supported by plump cushions. A chorus of candle flames dance within your Cotswolds stone chimney breast, as the vast, uninterrupted skies spread out above you like a map of tiny stars. You enjoy the night air, knowing that, at any moment, you can step back into the warm glow of this incredible home, a place you’ll fall in love with again and again.
