Beautiful and accessible retreat

Designed by award-winning architect, Roderick James this is an exquisite, stylish and modern property in a commanding position on the Gitcombe estate.

The property has been built to the most exacting of standards with a traditional oak-frame design which is fully glazed two sides and offers spectacular far reaching views across the majestic rolling countryside. The property benefits from modern luxuries with underfloor heating throughout the property, designer bathrooms by award-winning Sapphire Spaces and a heat recovery system for the comfort of the guests.

For those less able Gitcombe Retreat offers full accommodation at ground floor, entry level, in the form of a double bedroom and en suite bathroom.

Coming and going: the property is situated in a spectacular position accessed via a tarmac drive at the top of the estate adjacent to the indoor pool facilities. It has been designated with privacy in mind and has its own parking for three cars including a space directly outside the ground floor bedroom for accessibility.

Living: large enclosed porch with generous built-in storage for coats and wellies with a W.C and sink. A stunning fired earth limestone floor leads into a light, extremely spacious and impressive contemporary oak frame open plan living area. Full glazing two sides' offers unrivaled views whilst offering privacy and seclusion at the same time. Plenty of room for all the family to relax and spread out with comfy sofas, a stylish Morso log burner, and flat screen smart TV with the addition of a Sonos sound system. Bi-folding doors open up onto a substantial wrap around oak balcony area with an outside dining table seating 10 adults, perfect for soaking up the views and star gazing.

Cooking and dining: generous, well equipped fitted kitchen with views through the swathes of glass make for a spectacular cooking experience whilst at the same time being able to socialise with family and friends. Seating for 10 adults is on the solid oak dining table in the centre of the room which gives a sense of balance and calm combined with the soft lighting and warm furnishings.

Sleeping: bedroom one (ground floor with accessible en suite). Light and spacious room with the character of the oak frame continuing through the building from the main living area. The room has a luxury accessible en suite that has been carefully designed to offer the guest ease of access whilst affording them the level of detail and design offered in the other designer bathrooms.

Lower ground floor: Oak flooring throughout with underfloor heating provides a clean and calm feel with light and airy rooms painted in Farrow and Ball soft calming tones with the warmth of furnishings and décor designed by local interior designer Holy Keeling Interiors. These bedrooms benefit from having opening doors to the outside garden letting the outside in.
