Newlands Court is an exclusive collection of fifteen bespoke modern Cotswold stone cottages built in the 1990s amongst the landscaped grounds of a former manor house, adjacent to open countryside yet securely positioned within a private gated development.

Offering a level walk into the ancient market town of Stow on the Wold, these properties have been designed exclusively for over 55s. For anyone wishing to downsize without having to dispense with precious items of furniture and to maintain an essentially independent lifestyle, Newlands Court offers an ideal solution.

This particular property is offered freehold but there is still much on hand for day-to-day needs within the annual service charge including all exterior property maintenance and the use of beautiful communal grounds.

On the approach to the terrace of cottages, a traditional post and rail fence is all that separates Newlands Court from glorious open countryside, stretching out to the hills beyond. The final terrace is seated in an elevated position with a rear aspect looking out on a magnificent line of ancient trees, the boundary of a country estate.

Meanwhile, the original formal gardens of the manor are set out in a succession of descending stone terraces and immaculately kept lawns, enhanced by an ornamental pool. A sheltered summerhouse on the upper courtyard terrace provides a sociable meeting point; the peace of the garden, planted with lavender and rose beds, a perfect place to take a stroll on a balmy day.

Each cottage has its own private garden plus a garage en-bloc and parking. Situated at the end of the terrace, this cottage is blessed with a good plot and well-proportioned, practical living spaces. The ground floor accommodation provides a reception hall, dual-aspect living room with open fireplace and a sociable kitchen-breakfast room. A separate study could easily become a bedroom, given the provision of an adjacent shower room.

Upstairs, tucked beneath the cottage’ sloping ceilings and quaint dormer windows is an elegant master bedroom complete with fitted wardrobes and en-suite bathroom. Two more double bedrooms and a guest bathroom afford plenty of room for visiting family and friends. Outside, edged with pretty herbaceous borders is a small, secluded garden, also tasked to the resident gardener, of course.

As such Newlands Court offers the ideal solution for those who are young at heart, without having to worry about the distant future. This development provides the luxury standard for anyone hoping to retire to the North Cotswolds.

Newlands Court was offered to the market by the Bourton on the Water branch of Fine & Country North Cotswolds; for further information on similar properties, simply telephone 01451 822977.
