The Property
The Malt House is one large detached, magnificent Grade II Listed family house, offering versatile flexibility - a large family house, with ample additional space for running a business from home, plus the potential for B&B!

Built in the mid 17th Century, and situated in the Conservation Area within the village of Castle Eaton, the property is impeccably well-presented throughout and successfully fuses a wealth of original period charm alongside modern fittings - creating a comfortable family house with versatile flexibility, and lovely south facing gardens.

Positioned on the Thames Path, the house has 6 bedrooms arranged over three floors, plus three rooms in the original bakehouse, which would be ideal for running a small business, or working from home, and as well as that the property has two front doors - meaning the current owners have occasionally used one of the bedrooms for B&B .

Castle Eaton is a village ideally located between Swindon and Cirencester. Just 9 miles from Swindon Railway Station and 12 miles to the M4 it is an ideal location for commuters wanting the benefit of both good transport links as well as a quiet village location.

At the heart of the home is a lovely 23ft kitchen family room, with glazed roof-section, all of which overlooks the sunny south-facing gardens. There is also a living room, family room and dining room.

The original Bakehouse is fabulous and a feature has been made of the incredible original bread oven. Above here there are two further rooms that would be ideal for a buyer wishing to work from home, or this area could form a granny annexe, or simply more bedrooms for the main house.

Outside there is a south-facing walled garden with a well, and at the rear of the property a double garage. There is a gravel driveway leading to the garage, shared with three other houses.
