Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Exceptional Cotswold country house estate, magnificently transformed for 21st century living, set within its own beautiful parkland.


Duntisbourne House enjoys a private location, ensconced within some 70 acres of its own mature pasture, wood and parkland. The house itself is perfectly situated above the Frome Valley taking full advantage of the south-westerly aspect and stunning unspoilt views of the valley and Edgeworth Manor beyond. No public rights of way traverse the property ensuring privacy and seclusion. The pretty village of Edgeworth is less than a mile away.

Despite its quiet location, there is easy access to the A417 dual carriageway (about 2 ½ miles), linking Junction 15 of the M4 at Swindon with Junction 11A of the M5 at Gloucester. Direct rail services to London Paddington from Kemble Station (about 8 miles), scheduled to take from 80 minutes, and Swindon (about 20 miles), from 55 minutes. Further improvements to the line in 2017/2018 should further reduce journey times. Kemble airfield also provides good private jet access.

Duntisbourne House has been and designed and built to account for the increasing demand for a 'healthy home.' As part of the design great care has been taken with infrastructure: A dedicated 'energy centre' sits apart from the house near to the stable buildings, housing essential power and utility points.
Much of the wiring inside the house has been triple-coated to contain electro-magnetic fields and trickle vents are in the tops of all the windows to keep fresh air flowing throughout the house.
The computerised lighting system allows precision dimming to occur in such a way that does not cause electro magnetic emission problems, unlike most normal dimmer systems. It also has the maximum possible natural light spectrum.
All house controls including temperature and security are hard wired so they do not need to be controlled via wireless emission (unless desired).
There is a dedicated fibre optic data cable that directs from the exchange enabling fast broadband speeds. Further to this, the greatest consideration was given to the building materials to minimise the use of products containing volatile organic compounds (VOCs).
The swimming pool has an automatic chlorine regulator, set to precisely apply the lowest needed dosage, ensuring pool water is kept clean with less chlorine than is usual.

Square Footage: 17,244 sq ft
Acreage: 70 Acres


From Cirencester take the A417 north west as for Gloucester and the M5. After about 4 miles take the turning sign-posted to Duntisbourne Leer. Drop down into the village, through the ford and follow the road up the hill, as sign-posted to Edgeworth. After about 2 miles go straight ahead at a crossroads, again signed to Edgeworth. The entrance to Duntisbourne House can be found on the right, before you drop down the hill into the valley.
