    About this property

    • The property is undoubtedly one of the finest on this exclusive
      lakeside estate. Not only does it offer over 6,000 square feet of luxury accommodation but it also occupies an enviable position, being particularly private and enjoying a beautiful westerly aspect over Bowmoor Lake. Indeed its open vista framed by woodland is a view to behold and successfully creates a sense of peace and a mood of relaxation.

      The house was built in 2011 to an individual design. It was completed to an outstanding level of specification throughout and is flooded with natural daylight. All of the house benefits from air source powered heating and air conditioning that can be controlled individually for each room. For that modern and convenient touch the house has an integrated Sonos music system and electric blinds/sheers.

      The overwhelming impact on entering the house is one of extraordinary space and light. Not only are all rooms of very generous size but the height of the ceilings are also impressive. Light and airiness are guaranteed by the wide expanses of glass which ensure views from nearly every angle. The heart of the house is made over to an exceptional living space which include sitting and dining areas as well as a bespoke Miele kitchen. Beyond is a further sitting room. A spa room opens out onto the terrace as do all the main downstairs rooms. Tucked away off the kitchen is a utility room and off the reception hall is the cloakroom and plant room.

      On the first floor there are five double bedrooms, four of which have direct access on to the full length balcony. All have en suite bathrooms with the principal suite being particularly decadent. As with downstairs, the appointments are of luxury standard.
      Outside there is private parking to the front of the house with a pathway leading over the brook and through a wooded glade. The lakefront terrace is in excess of 1,000 sq ft over two levels and enjoys immediate lake access. The terrace is south west facing, very private and has wonderful views.

    Local information

    • The Lakes are situated close to Lechlade, a small market town where the rivers Coln and Leach join the Thames. For centuries the town was one of the main trading arteries west of London, by both road and river. Leisure boats have now replaced the trading vessels and the town is a popular mooring place. The nearest other towns are Burford (the gateway to the Cotswolds)
    • and Cirencester, often referred to as the capital of the Cotswolds.
    • Communications links are very good by both road and rail, with the town being well placed for access to the M4 (J15) and the M40 (J8) plus railway stations at Swindon, Charlbury and Didcot, which provide regular services to London Paddington.
    • In addition to the immediate leisure facilities, the area provides numerous sporting opportunities. These include golf at Cirencester and Burford, waterskiing, gliding and polo at Cirencester Park. Excellent pubs abound and include The Five Alls in Filkins and The Swan in Southrop. There is an opera
    • festival at Longborough and theatres in Cheltenham and Oxford.
    • Set in 850 acres of freshwater lakes, woodlands and meadows, the Lakes By Yoo is a secure estate in the heart of the Cotswolds. Nature and sculpture trails, waterside barbecues, lakeside walkways and viewing platforms are all part of the estate. Sailing, canoeing and swimming can be enjoyed from the
    • property. With a full concierge service, the estate is also popular for those looking for a retreat where everything can be catered for.
    • Located in the heart of the estate is The Orchard Spa. Designed by awardwinning architects, the spa has a glorious 17-metre heated pool with panoramic views across Clear Water Lake. In addition there is a sauna room, steam room and gym with Matrix equipment and kinesis wall.
