Stunning contemporary design
The Links is a contemporary property which was constructed by the developer Cotswold Barn Conversions. It captures the essence of modern family living in the heart of the Cotswolds whilst retaining a Cotswold appearance fitting for a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The house stands in its own 1.25 acre plot, surrounded partly by a Cotswold stone wall and natural hedging with uninterrupted views across the garden and surrounding countryside. Located just outside the town the house has been carefully set into the hillside to take advantage of the beautiful views and throughout the property there is a tremendous feeling of space and light. Using local materials, the split level design provides well-proportioned accommodation on three levels with underfloor heating throughout. The double garage (which is built into the hillside), the Utility Room, Cloakroom and Plant Room are on the Lower Ground Floor.
A wide limestone staircase leads up the 43 long family kitchen with its Stonehouse fully fitted kitchen fully fitted kitchen including wine cooling cabinet, steam oven and boiling water tap. The Dining Area and TV/snug have a built-in oak bookcase and limestone floor. Bi-folding doors running the full length of the room open out onto a west facing terrace which is perfect for outside dining. The adjoining 34 long sitting room also has bi-folding doors along two walls one set opening onto the terrace the other onto a delightful private garden area. The room has a Vario woodburner and an oak floor.
There are 5 bedrooms arranged over the ground and first floor, 3 on the ground floor with 2 bathrooms (1 en-suite) and two further bedrooms on the first floor both with en-suite shower rooms.
This property has 1.25 acres of land.
The property is approached off the Cheltenham Road over a private drive, the first section of which is shared with the neighbouring property, terminating in a large paved parking area in front of the house and garage. There is a private garden area to the far side of the house from where there are views across the valley towards the village of Baunton. A terrace runs the full length of the rear of the property and beyond the land gently rises up to a further area of garden, at present laid to grass.
Known as the Capital of the Cotswolds Cirencester is a historic town with a wide range of amenities. Attractions include the magnificent medieval parish church of St. John the Baptist which dominates the mainly 17th Century Market Place and adjoins the Abbey Grounds named after the medieval St Marys Abbey where signs of its monastic presence still remain. The Corinium Museum houses one of the finest Roman collections in the country and the essentially rural market town character is greatly influenced by Cirencester Park, one of the countrys largest and finest parklands laid out by Alexander Pope, and which penetrates into the very heart of the town.
Cirencester offers a wide range of amenities and is well represented by the usual multiples including Waitrose. There remain however a large number of independent traders which together with an excellent choice of restaurants gives Cirencester its own unique appeal. The Links lies to the north of the town within a short drive of the town centre. Closer to hand is a Post Office/General Store at Stratton which also has a church, hall, primary school and two pubs. The main regional centres are Cheltenham, Gloucester and Swindon all of which are within daily commuting distance and the property is well placed for access to Junction15 of the M4 (23 miles) at Swindon and Junction 11A of the M5 (17 miles) at Cheltenham/Gloucester.
Direct rail services from Kemble and Swindon, the latter scheduled to take about 55 minutes. There are ample sporting opportunities including the adjoining Cirencester Golf Club, polo at Cirencester Park, National Hunt racing at Cheltenham and Newbury racecourses and water sports at the Cotswold Water Park. Private schools in the area include Rendcomb College (4 miles), an independent mixed boarding and day school (ages 3-18), Hatherop Castle, Pinewood, Beaudesert and the Cheltenham Colleges.
