Lakes by YOO is a luxury second-home development located in the Cotswolds region of England. It is a collaboration between property developer John Hitchcox and designer Philippe Starck, and features a collection of bespoke lakeside homes surrounded by 850 acres of nature reserve.
The development includes a range of amenities, such as a spa, tennis courts, a gym, and a boathouse. There are also several restaurants and cafes on site, as well as a concierge service to assist with any needs or requests. In addition to the homes themselves, Lakes by YOO offers a range of experiences and activities for residents, including paddle boarding, kayaking, hiking, and wildlife watching.
The homes at Lakes by YOO are designed with a focus on sustainability and natural materials, featuring timber cladding, stone accents, and expansive windows to allow for plenty of natural light and views of the surrounding landscape.
The interior of this second home, the lake house project, was created by Hamilford Design. Throughout the house, Ecohardwood Contractors installed herringbone parquet and planks using double oak engineered wood flooring that was tailor-made at Ecohardwood's state-of-the-art factory in Ocean Breeze colour.
