Boasting panoramic views of the Cotswolds countryside, yet less than two hours from London, new homes in Horsley enjoy an unrivalled setting in one of the best places to live in Britain.

The location, along with the carefully considered layouts and superb specification, have contributed to the popularity of new homes at Sealey Wood, which have attracted buyers from near and far.

Demand for housing in the area is such, that there is now only one bespoke designed property available at the exclusive Edenstone Homes development.

Priced from £1,495,000 this elegant four-bedroom home, built using Cotswold stone in keeping with the surrounding area, is the perfect solution for those who want a generously proportioned, beautifully appointed property.

Martin Taylor, managing director for Edenstone Homes, said: “The Cotswolds has a reputation as an aspirational place to live and this latest ranking from Halifax reaffirms that it’s well deserved as survey respondents from the area gave an overall life satisfaction of 7.92 out of 10.

“When it comes to embracing Cotswold living, it doesn’t get much better than at Sealey Wood as Horsley is a thriving village community, home to a school, village hall and community shop, amongst other facilities. Nearby Nailsworth has previously featured in the Sunday Times Best Places to Live Guide, while the countryside that surrounds the homes, including a nut copse and orchard, need to be seen to be appreciated.

“It’s a great place to commute to the neighbouring towns and cities such as Bath, Bristol, Cheltenham and Cirencester, but what people may not realise is that London is also easily accessible. Journey times to London Paddington via Kemble take less than two hours, including driving to the station, making Sealey Wood an ideal weekend retreat or base for weekly and long distance commuting.”

The homes have been designed to enable residents to enjoy the beauty of the location, with potential for panoramic views. For example, the drawing room in the final home available, the Gatcombe, offers views of neighbouring countryside from three sides.

The four-bedroom detached Gatcombe, is an imposing residence, with an enduring sense of grandeur from the moment visitors step into the welcoming grand hall.

The drawing room is complemented by a convivial family room, which leads on to the combined kitchen and breakfast room. There’s also a formal dining room, utility and two cloakrooms.

Perfect for work and play, there’s an exercise room and library on the ground floor too.

Upstairs, the master bedroom and second bedroom each has an en suite and dressing room, leaving the family bathroom to serve the remaining two bedrooms.

The Gatcombe, as with all of the homes at Sealey Wood, features a superb specification, including Sigma 3 kitchens with fully integrated Neff appliances, plus bathrooms and en-suites with contemporary white sanitary ware from Roca and premium tiling from Porcelanosa.
