We look through the keyhole of some of the Cotswolds’ most luxurious houses on the property market

Regency elegance

An exquisite Regency home in the sought-after village of Prestbury, a short drive to Cheltenham’s cultural centre

What: Idsall House is a magnificent detached home set in a private position at the edge of the sought after and historic village of Prestbury. A classic Regency villa that typifies the splendour and grace expected of a home of its era.

Inside: The well-proportioned, spacious accommodation is arranged over three floors with the principal reception rooms all overlooking the garden. These include a double drawing room, a kitchen opening onto a dining/family room, a substantial cinema room and cloakroom.

Jenkins Farmhouse

What: Jenkins Farmhouse is an interesting and hugely stylish Grade II Listed home with glorious views.

Where: Edge, Gloucestershire GL6 6NB

Inside: Not only is Jenkins Farmhouse in the most wonderful situation overlooking the valley towards both Painswick and Edge, one is immediately struck by the stylish design incorporated within this Grade II Listed property. Once separate cottages, the whole has recently been unified by the current owners in a sympathetic mix of old and contemporary, making the most of wood and natural stone and enhancing many of the original period features with new stone and oak additions. The overall effect is one of light, space and great character. Entrance Hall, Kitchen/Breakfast Room, Utility Room/Cloakroom, Drawing Room, Dining Room, Sitting Room, Study, Master Bedroom Suite, Five Further Bedrooms (all en-suite), Garaging, Views, Gardens and Grounds – approximately 4 acres.

Outside: There are electric gates which lead to a parking area. A fabulous oak summerhouse and deck area, with barbeque pit and lighting, overlooking the grounds and the valley beyond. To the rear of the house are two terraced areas and a more formal garden, the whole extends to approximately four acres. There are four garages, with a one bedroom annexe above.

How much: Guide price of £2,250,000
