Accessed through the entrance via Cerney on the Water, Elements has been specifically designed to take maximum advantage of the lie of the land. Sweeping around in a single line and stepping down towards the water of the naturally formed bay, each of the nine homes are arranged to have a share of the water's edge and lake views. "Cotswold stone cottage meets timber boathouse" was at the very core of the thinking, responding to the unique and enhanced setting where mature woodland meets the lakeside. An almost Scandinavian, open plan living style with large format glazing is central to the design route, bringing the outside in and maximising the surrounding views. A fusion of traditional elements that belongs to the architectural design of South Cerney and the Costwolds. Traditional stone echoing the historic village streets, slate roofs in true Cotswold style, textured, weathered cladding to blend with the landscape.
At Elements living at one with nature is a reality, this is what we call modern-day, open plan living, not just open inside, almost entirely open to the outside too, with a multi level living area. The houses have been designed to harness natural light. High specification details, superior natural materials and the finest of finishes makes for a very warm welcome. The bedrooms have dramatic high ceilings, huge picture windows and south facing balconies looking out over the lake
The Cotswolds is a stunning unspoiled region of England's countryside - officially deemed an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Gently rolling hills, honey-coloured limestone and ancient picturesque towns and villages make this a delightful location to call home. There are few areas in the UK that offer such an extensive range of outdoor acticvities as the Costwold Water Park. Being wonderfully flat, with over 3000 miles of public footpaths, makes it a great place to walk, run and cycle. On the lake you will find the sailing club and angling club and on land, the South Cerney 18-hole golf club and riding school. Both close to home and further afield, the Costwolds play host to a variety of events throughout the year such as the legendary Cheltenham Gold Cup at the Cheltenham Festival and the town's International Jazz festival. The Cotswold Show and Badminton Horse Trials are also days out not to be missed. Steeped in history, the costswolds is home to an abundance of heritage destinations. Many of the striking and scenic towns and cities close by boast stunning architecture and buildings of significant historial importance such as Bath's spas, Gloucester's Cathedral and Malmesbury's Abbey, and great shopping too! The cotswolds is also home to the largest collection of serious art and antique dealers outside of London. South Cerney is well servied for schooling with Ann Edwards Church of England Primary School right in the heart of the village. Just a few miles out and within easy access is a choice of good state and independeent schools and colleges catering for children up to 18 years.
