Property of the Day: Manor House, Upper Swell, Cheltenham
THE PROPERTY: This six-bedroom home with extensive grounds, a lake, tennis courts and a pony paddock is located in the heart of the Cotswolds. The entrance to the Manor House features an impressive Jacobean ashlar porch that leads onto the flagstone-floored reception and dining hall with glorious views of the garden.
THE LOCATION: The Manor House is well connected to all major transport links, nestled between Stow-on-the-Wold and Moreton-in-Marsh, both with an abundance of amenities and schools. The nearby town of Kingham is serviced by a mainline station to London Paddington.
THE INTERIOR: The entrance hall adjoins a large living- and drawing-room on one side; on the other is a spacious kitchen with a four-door Aga and flagstone floors. The large living-room has oak floors and bay windows, providing superb views over the lake, gardens and fields beyond. With six bedrooms across two floors, the Coach House and stables offer additional accommodation that can be used alongside the main house.
WHY WE LOVE IT: The lawned grounds have York stone terracing and mature trees, proving a hub of tranquillity, while all parts of the principal garden yield a magnificent vista over the mill pond and the surrounding estate.
