Hawcote Hill Birdlip Cheltenham GL4 8JL

A stunning and contemporary, detached eco-friendly home with outstanding views over the rolling Cotswold countryside. 

Further Information

Hawcote House occupies a charming position on a quiet lane at the edge of the village which enjoys some of the best Cotswold views.  Just one of three exclusive properties that were built six years ago by a local reputable builder that sought to create eco-friendly, high specification homes. As such, Hawcote House is cutting edge in design, built into the landscape to take advantage of the area with a sedum roof and clad in larch wood.  It has the feel of contemporary home as well as being highly energy efficient which has been achieved through an air source heat pump, under floor heating on the ground floor and mechanical heat recovery.  The collaborative living space brings the outside in whilst the layout of the bedrooms offers a flexible arrangement.  The house has a wonderfully bright atmosphere throughout the two floors of excellent accommodation, enhanced by ample glass and large open plan rooms.

Entrance is gained through a spacious reception hall with a picture window overlooking the rear garden. The internal layout has been cleverly designed into two floors of bedroom space to one side of the house and the entire reception space to the other.

The excellent reception space is positioned to the one side of the reception hall and is positioned on one level with the most magnificent 36 ft living/dining room with a log burner, barrelled ceiling and full-length sliding doors giving access directly to the terrace and garden.  From here is the modern kitchen with a pantry and adjacent utility room.  The kitchen is fitted with a comprehensive range of eye and base levels units with built in Neff appliances, an induction hob and Franke 4/1 boiling water tap. The cinema/media room is accessed through double doors from the living room.

Off the other side of the reception hall are three excellent double bedrooms and a modern bathroom, set on their own level accessed via a down short flight of stairs.  One of the bedrooms on this level would make for an excellent study. 

The same staircase rises to the two bedrooms on the first floor including the beautiful master suite which enjoys tranquil, far reaching views and has the benefit of luxury en-suite bathroom and dressing room.

Planning permission (ref 21/04235/FUL) has been granted to allow a single story rear extension.  The extension would make for an excellent office, gym or sunroom.  

Outside: Hawcote House is accessed via an electric five bar gate with video intercom, opening to a large area for parking and the double garage.  The garage has been split to allow for a useful workshop on one side and garaging on the other.  There is an electric car charging point and a bike and bin store.

The house sits beautifully within its substantial plot with the south facing gardens laid predominantly to the rear backing on to open countryside. There are two seating areas designed to take in the views, a beautiful pergola ideal for outside dining and a circular terrace, accessed from the drawing room.

Situation: Birdlip is a lovely Cotswold village just 6 miles to the south of Cheltenham, set within an elevated position within An Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.  The village has a primary school, rated ‘Outstanding', with a playgroup and after-school club, village hall and church in addition to the Royal George Hotel.   Educational options in the local area are particularly strong in both the private and state sectors with independent schools including Kings School, Wycliffe College, Beaudesert, Cheltenham College, The Cheltenham Ladies' College and Dean Close whilst there are Grammar schools in Stroud, Gloucester and Cheltenham.
