Bethell House occupies a delightful position close to and overlooking the thriving Cotswold market town of Wotton-under-Edge, which is tucked away on the southern edge of the Cotswolds. The house is predominantly sheltered to the north and east by a selection of mature specimen trees, yet to the south and south west, spectacular views span across the, Berkeley Vale, Severn Estuary, The Mendips and Welsh hills beyond, all whilst being set in the fold of the Cotswold escarpment. The immediate countryside is totally unspoilt and forms part of the Cotswold Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Large electric gates open onto the tarmac drive which leads up to a parking area for plenty of cars. The driveway is flanked by lawn and herbaceous borders, giving a great sense of arrival. Oak front doors open onto a generous entrance hall off which are the study, cloakroom and a door leading through to the integral double garage with room above. This room has electricity and heating and, whilst it is currently used for storage, it could be possible to create ancillary accommodation or a home office here, subject to the necessary planning consents. Off the entrance hall is a pleasant seating area. From here, steps lead up to the most impressive dining room and on to the garden room with under-floor heating and bi-fold doors out to the terrace beyond. The house has been thoughtfully designed and the accommodation flows extremely well, lending itself to entertaining plenty of guests. The kitchen/breakfast room, which is most certainly the heart of the house, is very well-equipped, with gas-fired Aga, a range of integrated appliances, wall and floor timber units with granite work surfaces and a central island. There are French doors out onto a terrace area at the front of the kitchen, which is perfect for enjoying the afternoon sunshine and there is a door to the rear of the kitchen which leads out the terrace behind the house and gardens beyond.
Upstairs, the master suite is delightful with an extensive range of built-in cupboards and dressing area which leads through to the en-suite bathroom with Jacuzzi bath and separate, large shower. Also on the first floor are two further double bedrooms and a family bathroom along with a generous sitting room. The sitting room has a large gas open fire with stone surround and there is a terrace adorned with Wisteria which has superb views of the gardens. On the second floor there are a further two double bedrooms.
The elevated flag stone terrace to the rear of the house is perfect for outside entertaining, allowing one to take in the surrounding undulating views of the gardens, with its abundance of specimen trees, herbaceous borders and water features. There are various different seating and dining areas to ensure that you can catch then sun and superb views throughout the day and, like the inside of the house, the gardens and terraced areas have been designed for entertaining. The garden, which is predominantly laid to lawn leads up to the rear boundary of the property where there is a large shed with electricity (available by separate negotiation), again, with seating area to enjoy the outstanding views over the town the countryside beyond.
