Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Longleaze Farmhouse comprises a superb example of a Grade II listed thatched and detached cottage, situated in a rural position between Swindon and Shrivenham adjacent to the A420. The property has benefited from an extensive programme of repair and refurbishment over the past five years, which has been carried out in a wholly sympathetic manner, providing a most welcoming and comfortable home.

The accommodation on the ground floor includes a comfortable sitting room with inglenook fireplace which still boasts the rungs providing the access to the former priest hole. An adjacent family/music room has a central fireplace and a window overlooking the rear garden with shutters. A separate dining room has fitted cupboards and an original fireplace with bread oven, and lies adjacent to a beautifully fitted kitchen which has been custom made to include an extensive range of storage with wooden worktops, a large larder cupboard and a gas fired Aga for cooking. Beyond this is a utility room, housing the boiler and a rear hall/boot room.

On the first floor a master bedroom has fitted cupboards, there are three further double bedrooms, a Jack and Jill bathroom fitted with a modern white suite and a further large bathroom with bath and shower cubicle.

Attached to the side of the cottage is a large barn, perfect for a party or storage. A detached double garage has a good sized workshop with a wood burning stove, and power and light connected.

To the front of the property is a large lawned garden, and gravelled driveway parking for at least four vehicles, with further parking in front of the garage. The gardens extend to the side and rear totalling in all just under one acre and backing onto open fields. There is a productive orchard with a variety of different fruiting trees, several seating areas with outside lighting, a small Dutch storage barn, greenhouse, summerhouse, chicken run and two separate water wells.  

AMENITIES South Marston is a village just east of Swindon, with a hotel, two public houses, a parish church, Church of England primary/pre-school and several clubs and activities. To the north west of the village is a business park and industrial estate. The village gives easy access to the A419, leading to the M4 (some five miles to the south) and the M5 via Cirencester and Gloucester. The A420 leads into Swindon to the west (including the mainline railway station) and to Oxford and the A34, approximately 30 miles to the east.
