Three stunning and design-forward homes offer beautifully appointed living close to the Cotswolds, says James Higgins
A chic development in the village of Woodford finds three exciting new properties within striking distance of the Cotswolds, historic Berkeley and just a 16-mile drive from Bristol. Abounding with contemporary design, they offer bespoke interiors and 21st century-style.
Numbers 1 and 5 are new-builds and incorporate clean, Nordic lines and large floor-to-ceiling aspects to create stunning, large family homes. The former is offered at £569,500 and comprises five bedrooms, while the latter comprises four bedrooms and is on the market for £495,950. Porch House, at £469,500, is a hybrid featuring a refreshed original property, enhanced with a contemporary extension designed in the same style as the other homes in this small development.
Number 1 is L-shaped and features an impressive square reception hall at the heart of the home that is mirrored upstairs with a large landing that benefits from front and rear facing aspects. Around these, the entire ground and first floors surround what is an uncluttered, flowing property. The ground floor includes two equitable receptions, an office/sixth bedroom, WC, large utility room, and an impressive kitchen/diner with bi-fold doors to the garden. The first floor locates an en suite master bedroom with a dressing room, French doors that access a balcony and ample natural light provided by four skylights. A second en suite double-bedroom sits at the front of the property and features a dressing room. A family bathroom and three further bedrooms complete the upstairs accommodation.
Number 5 is laid out similarly to its larger neighbour. Two receptions and a WC adjoin the hallway to the front and a small utility and large kitchen/diner sit at the rear. Upstairs features two large en suite double bedrooms, while a family bathroom sits opposite two equitable further bedrooms.
Finally, Porch House offers a marriage of old and new design. The porch opens onto a large reception with an adjoining living room which boasts a tasteful modern fireplace at its heart. An office/study completes the original part of the property. To the rear, in the new extension, there is a statement kitchen/dining space with bi-fold doors opening to a patio. Four bedrooms – one an en suite with dressing room – complete the home.
All in all, three beautifully appointed homes that benefit from trademark stunning spaces and generous gardens.
