New Exclusive Cotswolds Property With Panoramic Lake Views And Private Harbour


Watermark, in The Cotswolds is announcing the launch of its one of a kind five bedroom property – ‘Number One’ on Summer Lake; a unique opportunity to acquire the finest plot at Watermark, which has until now hosted the sales and marketing suite for the lakeside development. The suite is currently being renovated and will be completed to the new owner’s specification. Priced at £1.3 million this New-England style home has ‘wow factor’lakeside views from every side of the house as well as from the master bedroom. It is also one of the only properties in The Cotswolds where the owner can moor a 30 foot boat.

Jules Miller-Cheevers, Sales & Marketing Director at Watermark says: “Number One offers an exclusive opportunity to own the most coveted plot on Summer Lake and is a boat-lovers joy! For land-lovers, the lakes set a serene tone and offer a better quality of life away from the hectic modern world. Watermark is located in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) and a perfect retreat into nature and the great outdoors.

“Interestingly research shows that those living beside water feel healthier than those living inland and their homes are 37% pricier than their waterless equivalent, according to statistics by Knight Frank.” *

The impressive new five-bedroom property features a light, open plan living space with high vaulted ceilings. Upon entering, residents will instantly be hit with an exceptional view that leads straight down to the double French doors at the end of the property, which overlook the lake and a decking area (1647 sq ft). This large decked area, part of which is covered, wraps around the two lakeside elevations and will provide the perfect spot for alfresco dining.

The large open plan living space opens out into a dining area, which can also become a self contained room if required. The adjoining bespoke kitchen comes fully fitted with granite work tops, oak flooring and a large breakfast bar. Above the kitchen and dining area there is a flexible galleried space, which overlooks the living room and provides a flexible bonus space to enjoy.The property also comprises 5 bedrooms, three ensuite bathrooms, family bathroom, cloakroom & utility. An exceptional feature of the property is the master bedroom’s south facing private balcony which provides stunning views over the lake.

Ownership is hassle-free as ‘Number One’ is fully managed and maintained with gated 24 hour security. The newly launched home makes a perfect bolt hole to escape to, as an ideal ‘lock-up and leave’ option, with 24 hour security. A concierge service is also available for convenience and luxury. Owners also get added value with the use of membership to the adjacent Four Pillars Hotel gym & spa, and the nearby golf clubs – Wrag Barn and South Cerney.
