Brand new 'stately home' for the Cotswolds 

The Large Manor House, which, according to its architect, is "the closest thing to an original stately home that it's possible to build".

Modelled on the 19th century mansion of the same name which once occupied the same site in Wotton-under-Edge, Gloucestershire. Standing in 379 acres of parkland with views across the rolling Cotswolds, the 33,000sq ft property boasts 11 bedrooms, six reception rooms, a Harry Potter-style 'Grand Hall' and staff quarters. 

Behind the classical façade lie some very modern trappings, including an underground cinema, games room and indoor pool. 

The original house was built in the 1820s by Edward Sheppard, a wealthy clothier, and later became a hotel and residential care home. It fell into disrepair and was demolished in 1934. 

Ross Sharpe, lead architect on the project, said: "This is certainly the first building of this scale in the Cotswolds for at least 100 years.

We wanted the new home to look and feel like a modern, contemporary home whilst keeping with the classical tradition of the site.
