The Property

An exceptional and unique Cotswold home located in a much-coveted village, set in 1.23 acres of beautifully landscaped grounds. This stylish modern house built using traditional Cotswold stone, underwent an extensive programme of renovation and extension in more recent years to create a striking contemporary residence flooded with natural light. Approached via a canopied entrance the main door opens into an exquisite reception hall, where a bespoke central staircase forms a remarkable first impression. The ground floor accommodation is particularly well designed, seamlessly flowing, offering open-plan living with the option to close off the drawing room if desired. A tiled floor is laid throughout most of the ground floor further enhancing the feeling of space. Forming a central hub to the house is a most striking kitchen/breakfast room with dining area, fitted with bespoke cabinets with hints of an art deco design, the kitchen is particularly well equipped boasting an electric Aga, integral coffee machine, an American style fridge freezer, double oven, warming plate, hob and granite worktops. A step down from the kitchen breakfast room opens to the magnificent garden room which provides year-round enjoyment of the grounds with bi fold doors enabling the garden to become an extension of the living space. The formal drawing room is an equally beautiful room, enjoying a differing outlook across an enclosed area of garden. A large fireplace with stone surround and contemporary stove inset forms a warming focal point to the room whilst double doors open to the dining area, where a vaulted ceiling with part glazing yields yet another magnificent feature. A further reception room currently used as a gym offers versatility in use. A connecting door from the kitchen provides access to a large utility room which benefits from doors opening to both front and side of the property, a further door leads to the integral double garage. Positioned above the garage is a self-contained guest suite with a kitchenette and ensuite shower room, offering perfect accommodation for a relative or au pair.

Rising from the reception hall, the branching design T shaped staircase provides access to all bedrooms. The main bedroom enjoys an outlook across the garden, is exceedingly generous in size with an abundance of bespoke built-in storage and is served by a luxurious ensuite shower room, fully tiled with a large walk-in shower enclosure and a sleek floating vanity unit. The remaining four bedrooms have use of a family bathroom with deep free-standing bath and a contemporary shower room, both of which adopt a similar design and aesthetic to the ensuite shower room. Two bedrooms have an outlook across the landscaped grounds to open countryside beyond. Fitted with a built-in desk, storage and shelving, one of these is currently used as a home office. It must be noted that the property enjoys many unique architectural and artistic features and is immaculately presented.

Outside

Gadwall House is approached through electric gates which open to large driveway, enclosed by Cotswold stone walling with pleached hedging above. The front of the property enjoys great privacy and plentiful parking for multiple vehicles. An integral double garage with an electric door offers further parking and outside storage. Set within grounds extending to 1.23 acres, the majority of garden extends to the rear of the house and enjoys a southerly aspect. Having been professionally landscaped the gardens offer enjoyment for everyone with two separate areas of formal garden appealing to the keen gardener and an extensive area of lawn offering plentiful space for children to play. A magical woodland section with meandering path offers yet a further contrast. Immediately adjoining the garden is a large decked terrace providing the perfect spot for entertaining and alfresco dining, mature flower borders with a variety of plants, tree, shrubs and topiary provide backdrop of interest and colour. A detached Cotswold stone outbuilding with light and power is positioned to the far corner of the plot granting excellent outside storage or further potential for independent works space subject to the relevant consents. External lighting further enhances key features within the garden. Backing onto farmland owned by the Hatherop Estate, the property and garden enjoys a rural outlook across adjoining fields and to open countryside beyond. Gadwall House also benefits from a right of way across the neighbouring property known as Stoneyfell to the five bar gate in the far corner of the garden.
