Le Cabanon is an exceptional home designed with architectural and creative flair. Great thought has been given to ensure the home works as well for everyday living as it does for hosting friends and family. The location of the property is key to its design with almost every room laid-out to maximise the magnificent views. Huge windows allow the light to flood-in, seamlessly blending the beauty of the panorama with the beauty within. Contrasting materials including zinc, oak, wood and stone, create interest whilst blending seamlessly with the rural backdrop.
The main entrance to the house opens into an oak and glass boot room with ample space for boots and coats and a great area for children and muddy dogs to congregate. The bespoke Leicht kitchen is unique in its minimalist contemporary design with a door hidden within the wall units, opening to a fabulous 'Narnia' style utility room. A purpose-built dog shower and huge windows overlooking the far reaching views, make this room 'next-level' utility living and you may find yourself actually wanting to spend an afternoon ironing by the huge expanse of window! A 7m marble centre island creates a wonderful focal point to the kitchen. Aircraft glass worktops create clean lines with a contemporary and functional vibe and appliances discreetly hidden, including a futuristic Siemens hob which raises up from the centre island . A raised level family room/snug, overlooks the kitchen, perfectly positioned to maximise the valley views and an ideal spot to sit and relax, with an eco wood burner for cosying-up in the colder months. Porcelain flooring throughout gives the kitchen/dining space a lovely sense of flow and there is ample room for a large dining table seating up to 12 people. Glass fronted, the kitchen opens to a patio area and plunge pool. A cloakroom and two bedrooms, one with en-suite, are also located on the ground floor.
The sitting room is located on the first floor to maximise the sensational views, together with an oak framed garden room with balcony. The principal suite is superbly laid out, again with huge windows plus a sun terrace to maximise the far-reaching views. An open-plan dressing room provides super storage space, together with double sinks and a separate WC. Steps lead up to a fabulous en-suite spa/wet room with Japanese teak bath and large walk-in shower. Two further spacious double bedrooms and a large family bathroom are also located on the first floor, together with a light-filled home office.
Ecological design features have been subtly hidden within the fabric of the building to maximise energy efficiency with the least possible environmental impact. The entire house is triple glazed and a clever MVHR (mechanical ventilation with heat recovery) system regulates air-flow air around the air-tight property to ensure equal distribution of heat across the whole house and maximise cost and energy efficiency.
Outside, the garden is predominantly to the front and side of the house with a south facing plunge pool and several seating areas, including two first floor sun terraces. There is a super-sized double garage plus workshop, which would work well as a home gym, plus 3 stables and woodstore. Access is available from the rear garden to the Cotswold Way and National Trust woodland. There is ample parking for several cars.
Le Cabanon is most easily found by leaving Stroud in the direction of the M5 Motorway. At the Cainscross roundabout take the second exit and turn right at the following traffic lights. Continue through Cashes Green towards Randwick. Carry on up the hill into the village and the turning to the shared driveway to Le Cabanon is on the left, just after Randwick Church.
One of the key attributes of Le Cabanon is its magnificent location. Located in the heart of the pretty Cotswold village of Randwick, directly north-west of Stroud, the house sits almost opposite the picturesque village church. Screened to the rear by ancient woodland, the property has an unsurpassed location with panoramic valley views from every level of the house. Approached via a shared private drive, Le Cabanon is tucked away in a lovely private spot, whilst still within easy reach of village amenities including a popular pub, primary school and a thriving village hall which plays host to numerous community events.
Randwick is within 10 minutes drive from Stroud with its mainline station (frequent services into London Paddington scheduled from 90 minutes) and equally convenient for the M5 Motorway at junction 13 for Bristol, Cheltenham and Gloucester. Nearby Stroud has a large Waitrose as well as other supermarkets and an award winning Saturday Farmers Market.
There is a wide choice of both state and private schools locally, including selective grammar schools in Stroud, Gloucester and Cheltenham and in the private sector, Beaudesert Park and Wycliffe College are both within easy reach. Stroud has a Leisure Centre and multiplex cinema and there are great walks in the vicinity with the Cotswold Way nearby and a number of challenging golf courses.
