Property description

Tenure: Freehold

A deceptively large country residence set in just over half an acre, situated in the rural Cotswold village of Burton, close to market towns, the equestrian destination of Badminton, the idyllic village of Castle Combe and the vibrant cities of Bristol and Bath.


Nestled in the heart of Burton, a small village within the Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The Old Plume enjoys open aspect countryside views to the side and rear elevations. Within easy walking distance of the popular and well reputed public house and restaurant, The Old House at Home. Burton is served by two Church schools, Bybrook Valley School in Yatton Keynell (approx. 4 miles) and Trinity School in Acton Turville (approx. 1 mile). The village shop and post office are located in close by Acton Turville (approx. ½ mile).
Nearby market towns of Chipping Sodbury, Chippenham and the historic city of Bath offer access to everyday amenities. The property is well placed for access to major road links including the M4 (Junction 18) and the A46 (4 miles) providing excellent access to Bristol (20 minutes), London and the south west. Main line rail links are accessed at Chippenham, Bristol and Bath.

Ground Floor Accommodation

This charming Cotswold stone Grade ll listed house was a former 17th century Coaching Inn and now offers spacious accommodation, marrying original period features with a contemporary touch.

Enter through the rose covered stone porch into a central hallway that draws the eye through to the rear garden, via a light filled glass atrium. Cream flagstone flooring flows throughout most of downstairs, reflecting light onto partially exposed stone or lime-washed walls. Turn right off the hall into the sitting room which boasts three window seats, a wood burning stove, original beams and French doors which lead into a cosy library, offering a bespoke breakfront fitted bookcase, a further wood burning stove and shuttered sash window. Next is the self-contained studio, complete with shower room and fitted kitchen, accessed not only from the library but also via the driveway, lending itself to a perfect independent workplace or separate annexe.


Left off the hallway is an open plan dining area, capable of seating 20 guests, complete with an impressive inglenook fireplace, before stepping through to a beautifully presented fitted kitchen with granite worktops and hand painted cabinetry providing ample storage, including concealed tea/coffee, larder and wine rack areas. An oil fired Westwood range keeps the kitchen toasty and provides cooking facilities, along with an additional Neff electric oven and hob. French doors lead out to a west facing flagstone private patio, perfect for alfresco dining and watching the sunset.

Also located off the atrium, are a study, cloakroom and practical utility/boot room with outside access.

First Floor & Second Floor Accommodation

The generous first floor master bedroom enjoys double aspect windows with views over neighbouring pastureland and a well-equipped en-suite, sporting double basins and a walk in shower. Circling a spacious landing with built in bookcases; three large, double bedrooms together with two further shower rooms and the principal bathroom complete the first floor accommodation. Stairs to the second floor reveal a fantastic attic space, with its own open plan dining/sitting room, leading through to a fifth double bedroom with shower en-suite.


The Old Plume is approached through double gates on to a large, gravel driveway, providing ample space for parking up to six cars in addition to the substantial stone built double garage, with overhead storage.
The property is enclosed by dry stone walling or hedging and presents borders of mature shrubs, specimen trees and cottage garden plants. The lawn wraps itself from the front of the property sweeping round to the rear elevations, which lead through a clematis/honeysuckle arch up to south facing planted banks and an enclosed lawn, overlooking the village and pastureland. Secreted behind bay hedging, is a paved gravel “Italian” terrace, with olive and lemon trees, a wisteria covered pergola and space for outdoor sofa seating to relax in total privacy, capturing the last rays of the sun, or night time star gazing.

Finally, two attached stone garden sheds together with a workshop and WC complete the outdoor space.


We are informed the property is freehold. Intended purchasers should make their own enquiries via their solicitors.

The Old Plume has oil fired heating and mains connected electricity water and drainage.
