Our home

A 3 floor contemporary lakeside detached house at the Lower Mill estate, a new gated development near Cirencester, entrance to the Cotswolds, one of the most beautiful and historic areas of western England. The house was the original show home so is finished to a high specification, with a great feeling of light and space, and with beautiful views across the lake. Floor to ceiling glass doors run along the whole length of the front of the house, opening onto a deck a few metres from the water's edge. The ground floor layout is informal, with open-plan kichen, living and dining areas. The first floor has three bedrooms, one ensuite and two which share a bathroom. The top floor has two more bedrooms and another bathroom. There is a kayak available for waterborne ecploration.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

The estate extends to 450 acres of lake, meadow and footpaths, with homes concentrated in one area, but without feeling overcrowded. Facilities including a gym, indoor and outdoor pool, spa, sauna, steamroom, trampoline, playground, football pitch, tennis courts, are all a couple of minutes walk, and a small shop selling local organic produce is also on-site. It is a totally safe environment for children to play and cycle, with some educational activities organised on-site. There is a strong environmentally friendly ethos throughout the estate, which provides a haven for waterfowl and a number of rare plants. The estate is 10 minutes drive from the historic town of Cirencester, which has good shops and restaurants, with the Cotswolds to the north. There are great walks, cycle rides and pubs locally in many pretty Cotswold villages. Bath, Oxford, Cheltenham are all easily accessible and the house is 1 1/2 hours from London. Golf, riding, sailing are all close to the estate.
