Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 4
Constructed under the direction of the current owners approximately five years ago in conjunction with Hanse Haus and Renato Lusardi, a highly regarded Cotswold-based architect, the property was designed to maximise quality and energy efficiency whilst minimising running costs.

The heart of Fox Furlong is the welcoming open plan kitchen/dining/sitting room which provides a natural and sociable hub for modern family life. The kitchen area has been designed ergonomically to maximise function. The layout incorporates a comprehensive range of Miele appliances. A substantial island doubles as a breakfast bar and helps to separate the kitchen area from the living area. There is a generous walk-in pantry and a well-appointed utility with access to the gardens. A variety of design features allow light to flood into the room; the kitchen is accessed through frameless glass doors, an expansive window encourages views over the gardens and sliding glass doors open from the sitting area onto a terrace.

Should a quieter space be needed, a door leads from the kitchen area to a cosy snug. The large hall leads to an office, well-equipped boot room, bedroom with en suite shower room and guest cloakroom. The ground floor accommodation is ideally suited to rural family life.

A stylish bespoke staircase curves up from the hall to a mezzanine area which looks out over the hall. Steps up continue to a long first floor landing and onto the bedroom accommodation. There is a master suite with en suite wet room including a double ended bath and walk in shower. There are two further double bedrooms, both with en suite shower rooms and stairs leading to the attic storage rooms. There is a cosy study just off the mezzanine area and a comfortable library area at the far end of the landing.

The property is approached via a pair of bespoke iron gates and onwards along a gravelled drive which leads to a parking area in front of the main house and then in turn to the guest annexe and garaging.

Upper Oddington is situated in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with traditional Cotswold properties, a fine church and two popular gastro pubs.
