Specialness: Quality, Style and Class, it has the lot
Abbotswood is a truly spectacular Estate with, at its heart an impressive Grade II listed Cotswold stone manor house surrounded by some of the best known gardens in Gloucestershire. The house sits in one of the finest settings for a country house in the Cotswolds overlooking mature parkland, a beautiful valley and open countryside beyond. The Estate has delightful Cotswold stone cottages and farmhouses with great character, a diverse landscape and huge sporting potential. There is little doubt that the Abbotswood Estate represents a rare opportunity to acquire a property of this quality in such a sought after location in the heart of the Cotswolds. From entrance lodges, the house is approached from the north down the drive or from the south sweeping through the Estate past the lake and over the River Dikler. Arriving at the Lutyens inspired north façade, the house is entered through the front door with striking arched surround and domed entrance hall which opens into the beautiful main hall. Off the hall are the principal reception rooms which overlook the south facing gardens and extensive rolling parkland. These include an impressive drawing room with wonderful detailing to the ceilings, panelled library and study with door out to the gardens. The dining room offers excellent space for formal entertaining and interconnects well with the Billiards room, conservatory, hall and reception rooms. The North wing of the house contains the large kitchen, sitting room, scullery, pantry and additional domestic offices. There is also access to the lift and extensive cellars.
