A striking family home, Blakemore Farm combines design-led living with a secluded setting. Crafted by Yiangou Architects, the property is characterised by a timeless aesthetic and the honey hue of its Cotswold limestone walls, offset by verdant grounds.
A flagstone entrance hall welcomes guests. Inspired by 18th-century chinoiserie wallpaper, hand-painted murals dance across the walls. At the heart of the plan, an open fire heats the home while a sweeping cantilevered staircase connects three floors of considered living spaces.
The hall flows into an open-plan kitchen and reception room. Arranged around a central island, the kitchen features three butler’s sinks, an Aga and a range oven. Prepare lunch on marble worktops then sink into plush furnishings in the living area. Alternatively, three sets of triple-fold doors open onto the garden. As well as a separate reception room, the ground floor features a snug, a playroom and a dramatic dining room with seating for 14 – ideal for entertaining.
The interior palette continues into seven serene bedrooms, set across the two upper floors. The principal bedroom suite is a calming, textual sanctuary with neutral tones and flawless design choices. A further six bedrooms are each served by a bathroom. The pool house has one further bedroom suite in addition to an open plan kitchen and living room and an outdoor shower area.
The generous plot includes landscaped gardens, stables and a paddock where a helicopter can land. Play a game of tennis then take a dip in the pool. The grounds are set for spending time with loved ones and reconnecting with nature. Beyond, the rolling hills of the Cotswolds speak of country walks and cosy pubs.
