The Property
This fabulous barn conversion offers accommodation in the region of 2800sq ft and has been well-presented and improved by the current vendors. Positioned within the heart of the Village, The Oathouse is accessed through a 5-bar gate and offers privacy and seclusion. This low maintenance property blends many traditional features with a contemporary feel making it ideal for a wide variety of purchasers including professional couples and families. Currently it serves as a comfortable family home (with space for an au-pair) but it would also suit buyers with limited mobility (due to ground floor living and ramp access front and back) as well as being a perfect retirement property with space for family to visit. There is a successful fusion of new fittings and older character, the best of both worlds. The impressive 30ft sitting room has exposed beams and an open fire with log burning stove, whilst the 'Smallbone' hand made kitchen features an Aga as its centre-piece. Four large bedrooms are served by four bath/shower rooms, and there is also annexe space suitable for a home studio/work-space, and/or space for an au-pair/nanny. Outside the smooth tarmac driveway provides ample car-parking for several vehicles, and leads to the garage, whilst at the rear there is a pretty enclosed garden with an outdoor dining area.

The property is centrally positioned within the heart of the Village of Lower Stanton St Quintin, with historic Malmesbury less than 5 miles away and the nearby town of Chippenham providing a comprehensive range of facilities including a mainline train station (London Paddington approx. 1 hour 15 mins). There is a choice of well regarded primary and secondary schooling available in addition to a range of private schools in the area. The M4 (junction 17) is less than 1 mile away and provides easy access to the major centres of Bath, Swindon and Bristol.
