Further comprehensive facilities can be found in the towns of Malmesbury, Tetbury and Cirencester. Communications are first class with the property being within daily travelling distance of the commercial centres of Swindon, Chippenham, Bath, Bristol and Cheltenham. There is a fast and regular train service to London Paddington from Kemble and Swindon stations taking just over an hour whilst the M4 can be joined at Junction 17 some 12 miles to the south providing access to Bath, Bristol, London, South Wales and the West of England. Recreational and sporting facilities in the area include golf at Oaksey, Cirencester, South Cerney, Minchinhampton (3 courses), associated water sports at the Cotswold Water Park, Polo at Cirencester Park and boating on the River Thames at Lechlade. In addition there are many footpaths in the area.

Description

The property comprises a detached two storey barn which was
originally built in 1856 according to the date on the timbers and
converted in 1989 to a domestic dwelling. The property has been
much improved by the current owners and the new appointments blend well with the original character of the property. The accommodation is enhanced by a number of character features which include high ceilings on the first floor open to the eaves and an impressive display of exposed rafters and timber purlins. The dining hall is also an impressive room with its full length windows looking onto the south facing garden.
The accommodation is arranged to provide an entrance porch
which opens into the very light and airy dining hall. There is direct access to the garden and adjacent cloakroom. To one side is the lounge with cast iron wood burning stove and exposed Cotswold stone wall. On the opposite side of the hall is a Mark Wilkinson designed kitchen with a Belfast double sink unit, extensive wall and floor cupboards and a Falcon Range cooker with a tiled surround. The Miele appliances include an integrated dishwasher, washer/dryer and fridge/freezer with automatic ice making facilities. Off the kitchen is a small room with oil fired central heating boiler and built-in airing cupboard housing an immersion heater. The staircase rises to the impressive galleried landing with a vaulted ceiling having exposed timbers. The principal bedroom has fitted wardrobes and an en suite shower room. The second bedroom also has fitted wardrobes and exposed timbers. The third bedroom is currently used as a study with fitted bookshelves and again has a high vaulted ceiling with exposed timbers. In addition, there is a family bathroom with white suite and free standing slipper bath. The property enjoys a private and secluded garden with mature shrubs and a private paved patio area which is entirely to the front of the property. A central path leads down to the double garage which has two 'up and over' electrically operated doors. Above the garage is a studio room which is extremely versatile e.g., home office,
playroom, gym, workroom or storage. There is vehicular access on a shared private driveway to the side of the property leading to a parking area and hard standing for two cars in front of the garage. There is external lighting to the property as well as outside taps (hot and cold).
