Property flirt! Can you guess the price?

Need to escape your four walls for a few minutes? Have a wander around this luxury 3-bedroom lakeside apartment on a 850-acre countryside estate. It's a slice of Swallows and Amazons heaven! And then have fun guessing the price-tag.

January blues reaching peak levels? Here, this will cheer you up – a peek through the keyhole at this stunning contemporary waterside pad, tucked away on the exclusive Lakes by Yoo estate and then the fun bit – guess how much it’s worth ….

There aren’t many places you could wave to Kate Moss or a member of the Qatari royal family as you toss your bread and paper into your pannier, but then most places aren’t Lakes by Yoo (yep, they own houses here).

If you have deep pockets (ehem, tiny spoiler alert there) you can secure yourself this simply exquisite waterside bolthole perched right on the edge of an idyllic lake on this 850-acre rural estate.

There are under 200 houses here, it’s gated for max privacy, and you’re just 90 minutes from London (if you ever want to go back, which you may not). Oh and did we mention you get your own concierge, a full-service spa and restaurant on site, sailing club and a wealth of family-friendly activities, from kayaking to zip-wiring.

located on the edge of Lechlade, a lovely small market town on the Cotswold borders, it’s an idyllic part of the county, where the rivers Coln and Leach join the Thames, and you’re 12 miles from Cirencester and 10 miles from Burford.

The apartments are located within a three-storey, 9,000 sqft lakeside building; with two apartments per floor, averaging 1,300 sq ft – just imagine the space! This 3-bedroom stunner looks gorgeous with a modern Scandi meets Cotswold vibe, but purchasers can also select from three interior design packages created by YOO Studio if you’re feeling fancy.

If you’re into open plan living spaces you’ll love it here. The lounge and dining area blend seamlessly into each other before opening out on to your own private balcony and terrace area. Expect state-of-the-art kit here too, including a top of the range entertainment system.

Your view? Literally, one to die for! You’ll be overlooking one of the stunning natural lakes here, where you can sit out and watch the dipping kingfishers and swooping herons all day long. Ship the kids out on a canoe or kayak on the lake or to the thrilling on site zip-wire.

Each apartment comes with air conditioning, log burners, sliding balcony doors, fully fitted kitchens, bathrooms, timber flooring and rugs. And if yuo want to go all out (heck why not!) there’s also the option for extras such as deck pools, boat docks and fire pits.

So how much is it on for, do you think? Get calculating those zeros! Best guesses in the comments box below and click here to see if you’re right. No cheating now, that’s naughty.
