Situated in a rural location on the outskirts of this popular village yet only 10 miles from Swindon which provides extensive shopping and leisure facilities plus there is mainline rail services from Kemble (4 miles) to London Paddington in approximately 80 minutes. The M4 is a short drive and provides fast links with the centres of Bath, Bristol and London. The stone built property was once part of a larger farm and in part dates from around 1884 with later additions added in the late 1990’s. The property has a main five bedroom house which is ready to move straight into, a detached self contained office which could also be used as an annexe or holiday let subject to planning approval. The outbuildings could be ideal for equestrian use and the grass paddocks are ready to graze.
This substantial five bedroom property is approximately 2,718 sq ft and provides everything one would expect from a luxury executive home, affording a huge triple aspect drawing room with feature stone fireplace having an inset multi fuel burner, dining room, sitting room with brick built fireplace, inset log burner, open plan stairs and door to the air conditioned conservatory. The kitchen breakfast room is fitted with an extensive range of base and eye level units with integrated appliances and an original period door to the front porch. Off the dining room is a utility room which accommodates the oil fired boiler, access door to the front and to the outbuildings and door to the cloakroom. Staircases from the sitting room and drawing room rise to the first floor where there are five double bedrooms, a modern family bathroom, further modern family shower room and a small study area. The house is extremely well presented and finished to a high standard, ready to simply move in to.
The property is set back off the road and approached via tall timber gates which open into a gravelled driveway which sweeps through the manicured lawns and branches off to lead to the farmhouse and double car port, then on to the outbuilding and office/annexe to the rear. There are landscaped gardens to the front and rear of the house which are predominately laid to lawn and interspersed with mature trees and shrubs.
Office/Annexe & Outbuildings
The versatile range of outbuildings offer over 8,000 square feet of space and consist of a huge former agricultural pole barn which houses 5 newly built internal stables. Between the office/annexe and the farmhouse there is a paved courtyard with planted beds where there is a ‘well built’ store with workshop adjoining the double car port, a large implement store and four former calf pens. The detached self contained annexe, office or holiday let, subject to planning approval, provides two spacious rooms, two WC's, a kitchenette and an entrance hall.
Paddocks & Land
To the side of the property is a paddock having two farmgates and natural hedged boundaries and post and rail fencing. In front of this paddock is a large grassed area ideal for grazing or to install a manege subject to planning approval. A large part of the front garden could also be given over for grazing which would allow the horses to be seen from the house. In all the available land for grazing including a portion of the front garden is around 6.3 acres, subject to a measured survey.
