Tenure: Freehold

A small development of two beautifully designed Scandinavian inspired Eco Homes set in a stunning rural location with views over apple orchards and rolling farmland. These properties are at the forefront of current low energy design, and utilise proven modern sustainable technologies to target Level 6 of the Code for Sustainable Homes. They have been designed for comfortable and convenient living, and will deliver exceptionally low energy costs along with very low ongoing maintenance requirements. Utterly bespoke, from design through to construction, they provide hand crafted living accommodation to the very highest build quality.

These properties set out to inspire and delight, from the pretty flowering sedum roof of the porches, to the first floor bedrooms that each enjoys their own balcony with far reaching views of the scenic Wye Valley. The main living room is a generous space with a high vaulted ceiling that benefits from an abundance of natural light from the high level triangular windows in the gable walls, and the solar powered VELUX windows in the roof. And whilst the full length of the rear wall is triple glazed bringing your private garden into your living space through generously sized patio doors, there is still ample wall space for your art and your flat screen TV.

The kitchen dining room is conceived as a contemporary farmhouse kitchen, at the heart of which is a modern inglenook containing the EVERHOT heat storage range cooker. With polished slate flooring throughout, a large light and airy space is created. The kitchen has a vast array of integrated appliances for that extra bit of convenience, including wine cooler and steam function oven, whilst the dining area has two sets of French doors onto a patio eating area that overlooks the orchard. Downstairs there is also a separate utility room and wet room shower, along with plenty of clever storage arrangements.

The master bedroom suite occupies the whole of the second floor. It is a quiet and tranquil space that can offer a high level of privacy with its own seating/desk area and a separate shower. The vaulted ceiling to the bedroom adds character and has a large VELUX roof window offering expansive views.
There are three good sized bedrooms on the first floor and they all have balconies with far reaching views. Bedroom two also has an ensuite. The family bathroom is situated off the landing on this floor, and there is a seating/desk area with a large window overlooking the sedum roof.

Brookthorpe is a small village situated approximately midway between Gloucester and Stroud surrounded by wonderful countryside and nestling beneath the Cotswold escarpment. The community has a church and village hall at its heart along with Fagin's “Olde Worlde„ public house.
The Wynstones Steiner School is situated nearby in Whaddon with primary schools also in Haresfield, Upton St Leonards and Painswick. Secondary school options are particularly strong in both the private and state sectors with independent schools including Kings School, Wycliffe College, Cheltenham College, Cheltenham Ladies' College and Dean Close whilst there are Grammar schools in Stroud, Gloucester and Cheltenham and St Peter's Catholic High School nearby in Tuffley. In the wider area, recreational events include polo at Edgeworth and Cirencester Park, racing at Prestbury Park, eventing at Gatcombe and sailing at the Cotswold Water Park and golf at Gloucester and Painswick Golf Clubs.
