Location

Located conveniently in the Oxfordshire countryside, Snowswick Farm benefits from being rurally located yet easily accessible to local market towns and cities. Although unlisted, Snowswick Farm retains a wealth of character and is built in the familiar honeyed Cotswold stone. Peacefully and privately tucked away, Lechlade is merely three miles away with the larger town of Swindon, with excellent train links to London just 11 miles.
Sporting activities include walking, riding, golf, shooting and hunting.
Snowswick Farm is well served for a number of excellent state and independent schools which include: - Ferndale Preparatory, St Hugh's, Hatherop, Pinewood and Cothill. Oxford schools include The Dragon, Summerfields, St. Edwards, Headington and Oxford High School. Further afield are Radley, Marlborough and the Cheltenham schools.
Swindon provides a regular train service to London (from 55 minutes). There is also excellent access to the M4 and A40 (M40).

Description

Through the electric gates, you approach the house down a long gravel driveway. There is a large graveled parking area with easy access to the carport. From this point the property is completely private with spectacular views over the downs.
The dining room has multiple uses and has also been fitted with a screen and projector so could easily be adapted as a media room.
12 years ago, the current owners have completely redesigned Snowswick Farm. Whilst retaining the period exterior and highlights, a modern and light finish has been created to a high specification.
With its modern interior along with period charm, Snowswick is the perfect home.
The current owners have created a beautiful garden retreat. A focus for outdoor entertaining is the wonderful courtyard with access to the ozone swimming pool, seating under a mature pergola with heating and a barbeque/outdoor kitchen area. The pool house provides a changing area and WC. There is an outdoor shower and cameras linking through to the kitchen - a fantastic safety feature. There is an established hard tennis court which will require some work for full use. Further to this, the gardens incorporate established bedding with lawned areas as well as an orchard and fruit cages. Surrounding this are post and rail paddocks and parkland with field shelters and water supplies.
The current owners have extended the stable yard making it suitable for a professional or a family. The yard comprises seven stables with the potential to add further within the current building. There is a wash room with hot water and a solarium, feed/rug room and tack room. Further to this is a five horse covered walker and 30x40m manege. There is also ample lorry storage which is very private and covered.

Square Footage: 4,356 sq ft
