Contemporary and spacious 5 bedroom lakeside holiday residence in the Cotswolds


The Lower Mill Estate is a community of holiday homes set in about 450 acres of land and seven lakes, lying on the Wiltshire/Gloucestershire borders. The site provides a secure and beautiful setting in which to relax and lakes on which to fish, sail, swim or canoe. There is a shop on site providing basic supplies and a spa/leisure area with three swimming pools, treatment rooms, gym, children's play area, cricket net and tennis courts. Nearby is Cirencester, which is considered to be the gateway to the Cotswolds and provides a range of everyday amenities.

Communication links are very good with ease of access to Swindon, Bath, Bristol and the M4 to London. There are also fast and direct train links to London Paddington from Kemble, taking from 1 hour 18 minutes or from Swindon, taking from 56 minutes.


At the heart of the Cotswolds Water Park lies the Lower Mill Estate, an exclusive development of holiday apartments, cottages and houses. Ashton House is situated on the northern bank of Clearwater lake, so its south facing terrace and balcony enjoy the all day sunshine.

Completed in 2005, the house has been finished to a very high standard and in a contemporary style, boasting generous accommodation over three floors. The southern elevation features full height panoramic glazing, which floods the house with light and allows the beauty of the lake and its wildlife to be fully enjoyed from the lower decked terrace and upper decked balcony.

The front door opens into the entrance hall off which is the cloakroom and under stairs cupboard. Double doors open into the spacious 'U' shaped kitchen/dining/living room which encompasses three sets of full height, glazed sliding doors out to the lower decked terrace, a contemporary wood burning stove for cosy winter evenings and an eye catching, three storey central atrium. The space has been designed to create fabulous living and entertaining space inside and out. The extremely well equipped kitchen incorporates a gas range double oven with hood above, dishwasher, microwave and an American fridge/freezer.

A turning staircase leads to the first floor landing with its oversized window allowing views across the atrium to the upper balcony. Off the landing is the master bedroom en suite with a separate bath and shower enclosure, two double bedrooms and a family bathroom. Floor to ceiling glazed sliding doors in the master bedroom and bedroom 2 open out to the upper decked balcony, enclosed with glass balustrades. From here elevated lakeside views can be enjoyed.

The turning staircase continues to the second floor landing off which are two further double bedrooms and a second family bathroom.

The property comes with the benefit of a separate storage barn located to the front of the property within a block of four, and a parking space.

Square Footage: 2,717 sq ft
