The Swallows is a fine example of one of the most popular house types with homeowners and rental guests alike. Located in an enviable position facing west over Swillbrook Lake and Nature Reserve, The Swallows has captivating views across the water to the treeline on the horizon, yet is only a few minutes’ walk from the two tennis courts, spa and restaurant. It offers the chance to experience ‘reverse’ living in a very contemporary style with three bedrooms and two bathrooms on the ground floor. There is a well-equipped open plan kitchen, a spacious living/dining area overlooking the lake, and separate TV “snug” room on the first floor. The master suite, with large bathroom and gallery with stunning views, is on the second floor. The house is finished to an exacting standard to include oak flooring, feature wood burner, fully glazed elevations to the first floor with balconies to the front and rear. This is a house for those wanting a peaceful place to enjoy the perfect Cotswolds views of water and wildlife and a comfortable place to spend time relaxing with friends and family.
