A stunning contemporary home of great style and quality in a beautiful village setting with far reaching views across open countryside and protected parkland.
The Malt House has the wonderful combination of stunning contemporary architecture and a picturesque village setting, right in the centre of Cowley opposite the beautiful Cowley Manor, so enjoying all that the village has to offer yet occupying a private position with peace and privacy too.
Built in 2012, The Malt House was designed to take in the exceptional landscape, so the main living area is on the first floor and combines the kitchen, dining area and sitting room. This is a stunning room with four sets of French doors leading out to a full length south facing terrace. The kitchen is fitted with stylish Poggenpohl cabinets, corian worksurfaces and a range of Gaggenau appliances to include a convection oven, main oven, microwave, steam oven, warming drawer, espresso machine, large fridge with ice maker, wine fridge, freezer, dishwasher, induction hobs and a teriyaki plate, waste disposal unit and boiling water tap. It is a stylish, open room that is further enhanced by engineered oak flooring with under floor heating, triple glazing to windows including the full width skylights and wonderful views.
The house has a lovely flow of living and bedroom space, making this home ideal for family living. On entering the house, there is an immediate feeling of light and space, enhanced by the polished limestone floor, double height ceiling in the reception hall and from the entrance, a vista straight down to the end of the hallway and out to the garden.
A large study has access out to the garden as does a further family room of 24' that also makes an excellent children's sitting room or games room. All of the reception areas therefore have access to outside as does the lovely 22' master bedroom, with a luxury en-suite and an excellent bank of fitted wardrobes.
On the middle floor is a large bedroom with en-suite, overlooking the garden and with French doors opening out to the terrace, a further bedroom with en-suite and two more bedrooms served by a smartly fitted bathroom. As well as the beautiful rooms and the exceptional finish, The Malt House has great functionality too with a large utility room, plant room, cloak room as well as generous fitted storage and off the double garage, a large store room.
The Gardens and Grounds:
The setting of The Malt House is very special, approached off a gated driveway that gives access to The Malt House and The Walled Garden. The setting is landscaped but relaxed with expanses of lawn and an open vista to the front, where there is a seating area and terrace. A wide gravel driveway provides parking for several cars and there is access to the double garage and side access where further enclosed parking could be created if needed. The gardens wrap around the house and enjoy a rarely found, due south orientation. A deep patio borders the rear of the house, the lawns are three tiered and abutted by deep well stocked borders and enclosed via low dry stone walling so as not to inhibit any of the wonderful views across the adjoining land, countryside and parkland in the distance.
Cowley is one of the most popular villages on the outskirts of Cheltenham, and with a population of under 400 residents, properties rarely become available to purchase. One of the main attractions of the village is Cowley Manor Hotel and Spa, set in beautiful grounds which encompass St.Mary's Church. The village pub is The Green Dragon Inn, which has been popular for decades and always well patronsied by the locals and beyond. One knows when they are entering Cowley from the A435 as they enter through two large pillars, either side of the road entrance, existing from the entrance of the Cowley Manor estate and the road is beautiful on any sunny day as the long avenue of lime and horse chestnut trees splinter the light across the road. Charlton Kings is only 4.5 miles away for everyday needs, Cheltenham 6 miles for exceptional shopping and schooling and Cirencester 10 miles.
