Listed Cotswold property makes use of water feature

Listed Cotswold property makes use of water feature

A prominent water feature can be seen at The Folly, a Grade II listed property up for sale in the Cotswolds.

Property buyers who are attracted to garden ponds and water features may find their heads turned by a desirable home now on the market in Gloucestershire.

Located near Tetbury, The Folly has been described by Country Life as "a particularly attractive Grade II listed house believed to date from the 17th century with later 18th century additions".

The property contains five bedrooms and 4,800 sq ft of living space in total, but prospective buyers will also find much to enjoy outside.

In the professionally landscaped gardens, the flagstone terrace is positioned around a central water feature, while a parterre lavender garden with a central obelisk covers one side.

The house, which has a guide price of £1.3 million, also includes a vegetable garden, stables and a six-acre paddock.

In a recent article for the Daily Telegraph, expert Bunny Guinness said water features can be used to give gardens "the wow factor".
