Tenure: Freehold

For anyone looking for a straightforward turn key, drop your bags and move straight in kind of place; this is the one for you. The house was built about 4 years ago when the current owners bought it 'off-plan' from Redrow and worked tirelessly alongside them to create a home finished to an exceptionally high standard. The additional upgrades alone had a value of over £62,000, which is far short of how much one would have to spend retrospectively post build - let alone the disruption one would have to endure.


As you approach the house from the street, the attention to detail is immediately apparent by the perfectly landscaped front garden. There is a quaint covered porch, ideal for de-booting after a long country walk around the lakes of South Cerney. Enter the main hallway and you are welcomed with a first glimpse through to the vast kitchen/family room and across the rear gardens. Off the hallway there is a fully travertine tiled WC and a huge understairs storage cupboard housing the nerve centre of the home entertainment system and WiFi signal boosters. This system enables Sky TV, Sonos, Blue Ray and Apple TV through most of the habitable rooms - the bathrooms all have Sonos speakers in the ceilings.

There is a formal dining room looking out to the front which is a great spot for those who like to entertain but would equally serve well as a play room or home office for anyone requiring the additional rooms. Across the hall is a stunning living room with a beautiful gas fire place, ample space for the owner's two enormous American sofas and a large bay window. Both rooms are pre wired with both 240v and 110v circuits so anyone bringing AV equipment from abroad need not go to the expense of replacing it.

Carry on through to the hall where you first caught a glimpse of the rear part of the house and you will be in awe of the 12.4m x 4.2m (40'7 x 13'2) kitchen/breakfast/family room which is absolutely breathtaking and the real centre point of this family home. To your left is the kitchen area which has been upgraded, beyond the already high Redrow spec, with additional worktop and cupboard space to provide the ultimate chef's haven. The positioning of the black glass 5 ring gas burner is such that you can cook whilst still socialising with family or friends so you are never left out of the action. The hob also blends in perfectly with the thick dark silestone work tops and metro tiled splash backs. Further luxuries include a wine fridge, double oven, combination microwave, integrated coffee machine, dishwasher, full height fridge and freezer. Off the kitchen is a utility room with a sink and door to the side garden and also a very handy fully shelved pantry.

The dining space in the main living area will comfortably seat 8 people, or more on special occasions, and the trifold doors leading out to the garden make this a phenomenal spot to enjoy the afternoon sunshine. In the far end of the room is a very large L-shape sofa, a Sonos Sound bar and Sub and an enormous TV screen mounted to the wall with concealed wiring. The flooring of this vast space is bespoke diamond patterned tiling, which also flows through the hallway. The wet underfloor heating system running throughout the ground floor is a further added bonus.

Step up the stairs, perfectly adorned with a runner carpet and stair rods and you will arrive on the beautiful galleried landing, which is a living space in its own right. There is an excellent space in front of the dormer window which could serve well as a study area or perhaps house a Chaise Longue to recline, read a book and watch the World go by. Or simply, as present, an ornate flower arrangement will complete this space creating a lovely focal point. Two very large built in cupboards are great for accessible storage to suitcases and boxes that one would usually put in the loft.

The master bedroom suite faces the front of the house and is, again, fully wired for home entertainment. Pass through the dressing area with large mirrored wardrobes on either side and you enter the magnificent ensuite shower room. Fully travertine tiled, there is a full width walk-in shower with a frameless glass screen, large basin on a pedestal with storage beneath, heated towel, WC and frosted window to the side. Don't forget the speaker in the ceiling to help you get ready in the mornings.

Bedroom two also faces the front and has a fitted sliding door wardrobe, home entertainment wiring and an ensuite shower room fully travertine tiled, basin, WC, heated towel rail and window to the side. The family bathroom has been further upgraded with travertine tiles, a Double Slipper End bath, perfect for a relaxing soak whilst listening to some peaceful tunes, separate shower cubicle, WC, basin, heated towel rail and window to the side. Bedroom three enjoys an outlook over the rear garden and afternoon sun and has a large fitted wardrobe with sliding mirrored doors. Hop back across the landing where you will find bedrooms four and five, both of which are double rooms with fitted wardrobes.

Head back downstairs and into the rear garden, which is ideally orientated to bask in the afternoon and early evening sun, and you will see why the owners picked this particular plot. They have spent a lot of time and money transforming the original patch of grass left by Redrow to create a superb blend of low maintenance lawn, patio and shingled areas for pots and plants. It really does cater for every need but should you want to have more lawn then this could quite easily replace the shingled areas with minimum effort. The large patio area is an ideal spot for enjoying summer BBQ's and with the addition of Latern lights and external power sockets you need not retreat once darkness falls.

To the side of the house is an area designated for a rotary airer to keep it out of sight and away from BBQ fumes with a further paved area for bin storage at the rear of the double garage. Speaking of the garage, this is accessed via a personnel door on the side (a further upgrade) as well as remote operated electric garage door to the front. It is also alarmed with an additional key pad controlling the main house alarm. A high stained wood gate across the driveway provides privacy and security and is also prewired with power connections for electric remote operation should you wish to have that installed.

Cerney on the Water is one of Redrow's flagship development sites in the Cotswolds and it is not hard to see why it has become so sought after. Unlike most sprawling new build estates, much thought and planning has been considered to create as much sense of space and greenery as possible. There are two play areas for children and a large open space for picturesque walks along the shores of South Cerney Sailing Club lake. It is also home to Fenton's Community Centre which has been a very welcome addition to the village. South Cerney has a host of fantastic local amenities including three pubs, Indian restaurant, sandwich shop, fish & chip shop, chemist, doctor surgery, vets, village hall, two churches, a primary school, pre-school playgroup, a Spar and a Co-Op. That's in addition to being in the heart of the Cotswold Water Park with countless lakes for all varieties of water sports.

Commuting connections to London are a breeze with direct trains to Paddington from Kemble (78 mins) 4 miles away or Swindon (58 mins) 12.5 miles away. The A419 gives access to the M4 Jct 15 (16 miles) whilst Cirencester is only 4 miles and Cheltenham 20 miles away. As well as the local village school there are a number of secondary schools in and around Cirencester along with great private and grammar schools.
