Tenure: Freehold

Little Lemhill Farm is approached down a long private driveway edged by white poplars. The house is attractively presented throughout in a light, contemporary style which is both up-to-date but also respectful of the property’s intrinsic charm. The house faces due south and the principal rooms all enjoy unspoilt open views over the gardens to the pond and countryside beyond. The kitchen/breakfast room is perfect for modern family living. It has a large island unit and huge sliding glazed doors onto the garden. There are five bedrooms on the first floor including an excellent master suite with a large bathroom and separate shower room. All the bedrooms have fitted wardrobes. The sixth bedroom on the second floor has a further bedroom leading off which could be converted to an en suite bathroom.

Little Lemhill Farm occupies a delightful rural setting, surrounded by open Gloucestershire countryside and with no close neighbours. Despite its private and tranquil setting, Lechlade is only a mile away. This charming riverside town has a good range of everyday shops and services, with a wider choice at the ancient market town of Cirencester (13 miles). Other local towns include
Burford and Fairford. The main regional centres are Cheltenham and Oxford, easily accessible via the A40. The M4 at Swindon (junction 15) is 14 miles to the south. Direct rail services to London Paddington from Swindon station (55 minutes)
or Charlbury (78 minutes).

Ample local sporting opportunities including a number of golf courses. The area has long been associated with equestrian sports including polo
at Cirencester Park, National Hunt racing at Cheltenham and Newbury and the Badminton, Blenheim and Gatcombe Horse Trials.

Private schools in the area include St Hugh’s, Hatherop Castle, Pinewood, and the Cheltenham Colleges.

To the south of the house is a pretty partly walled garden with mixed borders and a large flat lawn. A ha-ha separates this from the drive, on the far side of which is a large pond with a bridge leading to an island. To the east of the house is an orchard of apple trees and an astroturf tennis court. A heated swimming pool is discreetly situated to the south west, enclosed with high walls.

On the west side of the farmhouse is a large traditional period Cotswold stone barn, providing excellent storage space as well as a log store, workshop and open fronted garaging. To the rear is an extensive range of further buildings being a mixture of period and more modern construction. These include stabling for 16, further garaging, a tack room and feed stores. A large modern
barn provides excellent storage space. Situated above the tack room is a one-bedroom flat. Completing the equestrian facilities is an outdoor manège with a softrack surface of approximately 20m x 40m.

The cottages
Attached to the north-western end of the farmhouse are two cottages: Little Lemhill Cottage (3 bedrooms) and Stable Cottage (1 bedroom). They are ideal for staff or family or equally can provide a useful letting income.

The land
Little Lemhill Farm sits near the centre of its land which is divided into various level paddocks which
are ideal for horses. In all Lot 1 extends to 20.57 acres.

The Gatehouse (Lot 2) shown hatched on the plan
This detached period cottage is situated at the end of the drive and, like the farmhouse, has good rural views. Larger than it initially appears, the house extends to 1,516 square feet of accommodation with a large sitting room and a
good-sized kitchen/dining room.

There are three bedrooms and two bathrooms on the first floor. There is a gravelled parking area, a garden and a small paddock to the west. In all Lot 2 extends to 0.56 acres.
