Full description

Asked what they will miss most when they leave their home the owners remarked The special memories, we have lived here over 30 years and have in turn watched both the children and then the grandchildren playing in the acre garden, collecting pine cones for our open fire, watching firework displays in the distance at Wroughton from the comfort of our conservatory, drinks parties at Christmas with our terrific neighbours and the many special garden events we have been able to hold at home entertaining huge numbers of people because of the space we have both inside and outside the property. In addition it will be sad to miss the little things like the daffodils & bluebells flowering in the spring and the wonderful magnolia and flowering Cherry trees. We have thoroughly enjoyed our time here and it has always felt like living in the countryside with the conveniences of the Town Centre on our Doorstep.
