A substantial newly built contemporary residence set within a beautiful listed Victorian walled garden, originally part of the Westonbirt Estate. Secure gates lead to a private driveway, leading to secondary gated access to the parking area and garaging. A gravel pathway leads through the formal gardens to the grand brick and glass atrium reception of six metres in height with three provocative slit windows to the landing, immediately providing the feel of volume and space within. A magnificent inner stair hall has a contemporary Palladium stair case leading to both sides of the first floor’s bedroom accommodation. An element of fun is incorporated within the stairs, having Oak treads, glass rises with discreet LED lighting and an elegant handrail-free glass balustrade. The principal accommodation on the ground floor is at the front of the property, overlooking and opening onto the landscaped gardens. All the reception rooms have three metre high ceilings and one full height glass sliding wall to the garden. The generous kitchen/breakfast/family room with a large central island unit is excellent for entertaining and opens through to the more formal dining room. At the far side of the house is a superb drawing room, opening through to a library, beyond which is the private study. At the back of the house, off the hall are numerous rooms with versatile usage, including a utility/laundry room and secondary kitchen. A stair case behind the kitchen leads down to a wine cellar and store rooms.
The master bedroom offers excellent space, leading through to a walk in wardrobe and dressing area, next to the en suite bath/shower room. There are five further en suite bedrooms.
The property has been finished to a very high standard throughout with top of the range specifications, an abundance of storage, luxurious fittings and state of the art infrastructures, creating a sharp modern interior within an historic walled garden. The property benefits from Solara heating and also has a rainwater harvesting system. The heating is controlled by SMART APPS and mechanical heat recovery keeps the house fresh year round.
At the far corner of the garden is a self-contained annexe, suiting a dependent relative, staff, or to use as a detached studio or office space. Across the driveway is a large area of woodland that belongs to the property, with lovely walks and views across to Westonbirt House.

Westonbirt is a charming village situated in the south of the Cotswolds and within a Conservation Area and Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. In addition to the Church and Hare and Hounds Bar/hotel, there is also the world renowned Westonbirt Arboretum. The nearest town is Tetbury, a popular and traditional market town well known for its 17th and 18th Century architecture. Although the town is noted for its antique shops there are a wide range of everyday shops, exclusive boutiques and unusual shops as well as two supermarkets. The larger centres of Cirencester and Bath are thirteen miles and twenty two miles away respectively and provide a more extensive range of shopping and recreational facilities.
The area is ideal for those with equestrian interests. Polo is played at Beaufort Polo Club. The property is within The Duke of Beaufort’s Hunt and Westonbirt is also close to Badminton and Gatcombe horse trials. Other recreational pursuits include golf in the village and at Minchinhampton and sailing at the Cotswold Water Park. National hunt racing can be found at both Cheltenham and Chepstow.
The property is conveniently located with access to the M4 at Junctions 17 and 18 which provide easy access to London as well as Bristol where it links with the M5. There is also a regular rail service to London Paddington from Kemble, about ten miles away, taking approximately 75 minutes. There are numerous schools in the area, all within convenient driving distance. In Tetbury and Malmesbury there are primary and secondary schools while further afield there are several well known private schools, including Beaudesert Park, Querns Westonbirt, St Mary’s Calne as well as the colleges in Cheltenham and Bath. The neighbouring Westonbirt House and gardens are used as a private Girl’s School. It has excellent leisure facilities, to include an indoor swimming pool and gym that can be used by members.

Heading North through the village towards Tetbury, pass the Arboretum on the left and then The Hare and Hounds and take the next right turning at the cross roads. Proceed along for about 600 metres and the property is found on the right hand side of the road before leaving the village.
