Our Contemporary Lakeside Apartments are one of the latest additions to our collection of sustainable vacation homes. Designed by Richard Reid, they’re available as two or three bedroom residences including two spectacular penthouses. All offer large open-plan living spaces and external decking from which to enjoy uninterrupted views of the protected Swillbrook Nature Reserve and 50-acre lake. This spring, Lower Mill Estate unveils the latest addition to its community of sustainable vacation homes in the heart of the Cotswolds – a collection of eight beautiful, contemporary lakeside apartments. Enjoying stunning uninterrupted views of the protected Swillbrook Nature Reserve, 50 acre lake and array of wildlife, these unprecedented apartments are part of a new and exciting village – Somerford Reserve. Designed by award-winning architect Richard Reid, the Somerford Reserve apartments offer a unique combination of privacy and freedom – an opportunity to escape urban life and fully immerse yourself in Lower Mill Estate’s idyllic natural surroundings. This launch follows the successful two-month sell out of the recent Howells Mere apartments. With a range of two- and three-bedroom residences and two superb penthouses with panoramic views over the nature reserve, these apartments offer a level of architectural excellence that perfectly complements the beautiful surroundings. Extensive outdoor living areas can be enjoyed throughout the seasons, whilst luxurious interiors offer a warm and cosy haven on chilly days. Those looking to explore further afield can enjoy miles of exploration trails, wildlife ‘stayfaris’, fishing, canoeing, sailing, tennis and the serenity of the Pevonia Award-winning private spa – the UK’s first eco-pool entirely purified by plants.
