A Cotswold stone barn in need of updating


Garsdon is found on the Wiltshire/Gloucestershire border and is approximately 2.5 miles from the historic and vibrant market town of Malmesbury, which has an excellent range of everyday facilities and amenities as well as a very highly regarded secondary school and a beautiful Abbey. Garsdon itself is part of Lea and Cleverton parish and has an Anglican church, All Saints. Garsdon Manor dates back the 14th century and is Grade II* listed. During the 17th century it was owned by the ancestors of George Washington. Nearby Lea & Garsdon CE Primary School has a very good reputation and in Lea there is a village hall and public house, The Rose & Crown. Further comprehensive facilities can be found in the larger town of Cirencester, which also supports two superstores (Waitrose and Tesco), a leisure centre, hospital and many other essential services.

Communications are first class with the property being within daily travelling distance of the commercial centres of Swindon, Chippenham, Bath and Bristol. There is a fast and regular train service to London Paddington from both Kemble and Swindon stations plus there is easy access to J16 and J17 of the M4.

Recreational and sporting facilities in the area include golf at Oaksey, South Cerney and Cirencester, associated water sports at the Cotswold Water Park, polo at Cirencester Park and hunting with the VWH and the Duke of Beaufort's hounds. Horse racing at Cheltenham, Bath and Newbury. Theatres and wider shopping facilities at Oxford, Cheltenham and Bath.


Forming part of Heath Farm, Poplars Barn is a traditional 19th century Cotswold barn which was converted about 8 years ago. It is tucked away in an unspoilt rural locality and yet by no means is it isolated.

Internally the accommodation is arranged over three floors with a light and airy feel throughout. On the ground floor there is a wide reception hall with central staircase. A glass screen partly separates it from the sitting room which is a good sized family room having brick built fireplace surround and two pairs of French doors leading into the garden. On the opposite side of the hall is the fitted kitchen which leads directly into the garden room. Adjacent to the kitchen is the utility/boot room with outside access. Off the sitting room is the cloakroom.

On the first floor there are three bedrooms together with a family bathroom and en suite shower room. A further three bedrooms and a bathroom are arranged on the second floor. In total the property extends to about 3073 square feet.

Poplars Barn is approached over a shared driveway with the property being entered into through a 5 bar gate. A gravelled driveway leads up to the barn with a parking area fronting the double car port. Close by is the timber stable block having two loose boxes and a tack room. The barn stands centrally within its own grounds which are laid mainly to lawn.

In total the property extends to 0.6 acres.

Square Footage: 3,073 sq ft
