The Gasworks, nestled in the heart of Gloucestershire holds a huge amount of history. Originally built in 1877 as a private acetylene gas works to a nearby estate it has seen much change. The original stone structure to the front has been refurbished and renovated whilst a contemporary extension has been added to the rear. The extension, made from a CorTen Steel structure was purposely designed, complimenting the materials found in the surrounding landscape yet drawing ideas from the industrial heritage of the site.

Located in the original stone structure there is a large kitchen/breakfast room with bespoke kitchen units and a sitting room with a log burner. Both these rooms feature exposed beams and vaulted ceilings. A dining room and double bedroom with en-suite are located off of the sitting room.

A magnificent glass hallway links the traditional with the contemporary. Seven consecutive glass doors create an inverted bay window and provide access out onto the inner courtyard. Both the snug and home office are located in the watch tower. The bedroom accommodation includes an impressive master bedroom suite with a picture window providing far-reaching views across the rolling countryside. There are also three other double bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms.

To the front of The Gasworks there is a selfcontained home office/ writing room with its own log burner and stunning views.

Upper Slaughter is one of the most quintessential Cotswold villages, with period architecture and the River Eye flowing through the centre. Lower and Upper Slaughter are surrounded by picturesque, undulating countryside where there are some fantastic walks.

Within the village there is a Church and the exclusive Lords of the Manor Hotel with its Michelin star restaurant. Although the village is set away from main roads it is conveniently situated for many local centres including Cheltenham, Cirencester, Oxford and Stratford upon Avon. Everyday shopping facilities are available in Stow on the Wold, Bourton on the Water and Moreton in Marsh.

Naunton Downs Golf Club is 7 minutes by car. Communications are good with a regular rail service from Kingham to Oxford and London Paddington taking 30 and 90 minutes respectively.

To the front of the property there is a sweeping gravel driveway that can be accessed through two sets of double wooden gates. This provides plenty of parking for cars whilst the rest of the gardens and grounds run either side of the property down to the rear boundary with stunning views across the countryside.
