THE GLASSHOUSE LAKES BY YOO 4 BEDROOMS • SLEEPS 8
The Glass House at The Lakes by Yoo in Lechlade is a unique home with a glass façade. The house is sitting in the lake distinguishing it from any other house on the estate, and most likely also from any other house in the UK. An amazing example of luxurious “outside in living” , the architecture is geared to evoke the feeling of living outdoors in almost every corner of the property.
From Burford – Banbury, Banbury – Broadway, Broadway to Burford and all places in-between, welcome to the most fashionable, sought after and thriving area of England right now.
With wonderful attractions including Soho Farmhouse, Daylesford and The Bell at Langford to name just a few, London accessibility from various stations on the Cotswold Line; Kingham, Charlbury, the Wychwoods and Oxford, stunning houses, wonderful hamlets, towns and villages, and character abounding with a social scene to die for, it's easy to see why this tiny pocket of our country is hitting such a peak.
With the current buying market clearly stalled and Brexit still months away from being sorted, short to mid-term rental demand is certainly outweighing the supply. With 'Londoners' looking for a temporary escape from city life and their friends doing the same thing, we are seeing Notting Hill flock to the Tews on mass- or at least try to!
Is it a fad?, or is the demand for the North Oxfordshire Cotswolds here to stay for good? Only time will tell and I’m sure the competition will be snapping at its heels. You can’t stand still in this day and age so I would expect further development and progress in the coming months and years.
It’s very interesting times with much uncertainty in the air, but that’s all part of the fun, part of the challenge and part of the intrigue. The day to day game of matching people with their desired properties is certainly not a boring one!
Insider Tip As wonderful as this Golden Triangle is for an abundance of reasons, you could swap ‘Stow for Cirencester' or whizz into ‘Kemble not Kingham’ and you will soon discover an area of infrastructure, beauty and delight with a lot more bang for your buck!
Property Recommendation The Curved House for its uniqueness and location close to Soho Farmhouse.
