Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Anthelion is a beautifully crafted family house occupying a plot believed to be circa 0.68 acre (not verified) in a spectacular position on the edge of one of the Cotswolds' most endearing villages. The house has changed dramatically in recent years and has been substantially extended and fully renovated by the current owners and is one of the few properties in the village that isn't grade listed. They were keen to create the ideal space for their growing family which was achieved with the addition of the two storey extension. It allows the main hub of the house to occupy one large area split into three zones which benefit from underfloor heating. This area was positioned to make the most of the lovely views and south westerly orientation giving good afternoon and evening sun. They fitted a minimalist and streamlined kitchen which 'floats' and has been specifically designed to cater for large entertaining in a discrete manner. This spectacular kitchen flows seamlessly on to the dining/family room. Both of these rooms have huge bi folding doors, fully opening the south west aspect of this house which then flows on to the large patio and garden beyond. The lovely sitting room has a double sided wood burner. Essential for a country home is a generous boot room/ utility. This has been well fitted with a range of kitchen cabinets, built in fridge freezer, an independent sink and has plumbing for washing machine, tumble dryer and also houses the pressurised water system.
Rising to the first floor you will find five generous bedrooms and three bathrooms. The master suite is a spectacular room with vaulted ceilings and sky lights as well as a tranquil view over the gardens. This has a contemporary en suite shower room and dressing area. All four further bedrooms are double and have an independent feel and view. These are amply supported with a luxurious family bathroom and independent shower room.


The house is beholden only to its peaceful setting on the edge of Upper Dowdeswell, an historic village originally owned by the nearby Manor. There are a small number of houses which make up this pretty Cotswold village. All are situated on the no through road with Anthelion being the last house enjoying some views across areas of outstanding natural beauty. The village offers easy access to the endless amenities that Cheltenham has to offer and boasts ultra fast fibre broadband. There is superb schooling locally as well as in Cheltenham which has an endless array of highly regarded private and state schools. Upper Dowdeswell is surrounded by beautiful rolling Cotswold countryside with endless opportunities for outdoor pursuits including walks, horse riding, shooting and hunting. Many of the local families also appreciate the good communication links and access to the M5 motorway at junction 11a, the M4 at junction 19 as well as the high speed London train from Kemble Railway Station getting you to London Paddington in 90 minutes. The surrounding villages and countryside also have a bounty of farm shops, pubs and restaurants.


There are two main outbuildings within the curtilage of the property. The detached double garage was a new addition on to an existing Cotswold period bothy and has space for two cars with a workshop. The detached gymnasium was designed with multi functional uses in mind and has been specified with preliminary fittings for a steam room and sauna. It also has an independent cloakroom and heating. This would also make a wonderful home office, studio or cinema room.
