Cotswolds – Launching Exclusive Collection of Contemporary Lakeside Homes


Property hunters in the heart of the Cotswolds are now given the rare chance to purchase a permanent residence on one of the largest exclusive lakes in the Cotswolds. The area is normally a sought after hotspot for luxury second homes only, but the properties at Huxley Court, a collection of four stunning five-bedroom properties, can be used as main residences. Having completed the show home this month, the remaining three residences are due for completion in late 2018. Huxley Court is being realised by local developer Colburn Homes, who have extensive experience in creating luxury homes in the region.

Buyers can choose from two different property styles, named The Somerford and The Ashton, which differ in the layout but not in size. Nestled behind a private and gated entrance, Huxley Court is situated at the impressive ‘residents only’ Bradley’s Lake; one of the largest sailing and fishing lakes in the area. Despite a secluded location, the properties are only 90 minutes from London Paddington. With a wide choice of transport links, the area also boasts some top-rated schools including Cheltenham Ladies College and Dean Close, making Huxley Court ideal for families and commuters alike.

Appointed to help with the sale of Huxley Court is experienced, local holiday home specialist Watermark Cotswolds. “We often encounter enquiries from buyers who want to find a permanent lakeside home, so the demand is certainly high. We are therefore excited to represent Huxley Court, which is a truly rare opportunity for house hunters.”, Jules Miller-Cheevers, Sales & Marketing Manager at Watermark comments.

Martin Evans, Founder of Colburn Homes adds: “Our key objective for Huxley Court is to present buyers with the perfect family home; a home that doesn’t ask to compromise on location, size or modern comfort. Having developed properties in the region for over 30 years, we know the demand for such properties is high and we are thrilled to be working with Watermark to create something truly special.”

Residents at Huxley Court can embrace a stress-free way of living thanks to the tranquil surroundings and calming views across one of 140 lakes in the Cotswolds Water Park. The lake is also home to the renowned South Cerney Sailing Club and in close proximity to a beach. Onsite water activities include sailing, windsurfing and canoeing, whilst a network of more than 100 miles of walking, biking and horse riding trails ensures that life remains exciting.

The market town of Cirencester, where the local community meets to enjoy a variety of boutique shops, eateries and a weekly farmers’ market, is located a mere 10-minute drive from Huxley Court. Adding to the lifestyle is nearby Cheltenham, which is home to numerous annual events such as the infamous Cheltenham Races. Maximising the properties’ accessibility is Junction 15 of the M4, which is only 15 miles from Cirencester, granting easy access to the numerous business parks in the surrounding area.

With so many activities on ones doorstep, the homes at Huxley Court focus on creating a relaxing living environment, where owners can recharge their batteries. The spacious family rooms boast floor to ceiling glass-fronts with integrated folding doors that make the most of the views and natural daylight. The large terraces are ideal for entertaining friends and family, seamlessly connecting to private gardens that further feature triple garages with space above for an office or additional flat. Last but not least, each property has its own mooring.

The ground-floor of the properties features open-plan Omega-branded kitchens with a high gloss contemporary finish, soft close doors and drawers as well as Siemens appliances. Embracing a sense of community living, the kitchens directly flow with the dining rooms, creating a perfect entertainment space for family and friends alike. Also located on the ground-floor is a sitting room, utility room and one of the five double bedrooms with en-suite.

The first and second floor feature the remaining four double bedrooms, which are finished to extremely high standards and all come with en-suite bathrooms. Whilst residents at The Somerford designed properties, benefit from a large balcony, buyers of The Ashton can take advantage of a stunning terrace. Both options offer incredible views across Bradley’s Lake, which covers a vast 117 acres.

Prices at Huxley Court range from £1.8m and £2m. To find out more please visit or contact the Watermark sales team on +44 (0)1285 869 031 or via
