Set in approx. 1.2 acres a spacious four bedroom detached village house with stabling, paddocks and mature gardens within the lovely rural village of Great Somerford and in easy M4 access
An excellent opportunity to acquire a spacious detached village house with stabling, paddocks and lovely mature grounds.
Great Somerford is situated within the M4 corridor and is a popular rural village with a good community, which currently has a shop within short walking distance of the property as well as a public house, and local village activities and amenities including a church. More extensive facilities are offered by the nearby historic town of Malmesbury including a hospital, Abbey ruins and a number of public houses and restaurants. The property is also readily accessible to Swindon via the M4, the Roman city of Bath and Bristol beyond.
The property itself has been utilised by the vendors family for private residential and private equestrian use and falls within the Beaufort Hunt country (with Thursday meets) and The Vale of White Horse (Wednesday meets) There is also a local Pony Club, and, we understand, access to bridleways within a short hack of the property.
It is fair to say that the property would benefit from some updating, and it should be noted that some more immediate works do need to be carried out on the rear Garden Room.
We understand the property is within the catchment area for the well known Walter Powell Junior School. Further excellent schooling within the area includes Malmesbury School, as well as Westonbirt and others in the area.

Just a quick thank you to you and your company for the help we received from you all. Every conversation with staff members was pleasant and caring. We will definitely recommend Rural Scene to others.
I really don’t know how to thank you for the last 2 months of your time you have been priceless and you are amazing at what you do and have helped to change my life 💝💝💝💝 Due to how amazing you clearly are we have so much trust and respect for you that we are going to be delighted to place our cottage on the market with Rural Scene once we have moved and we would recommend you without hesitation to anybody needing to sell a rural property x
We just wanted to pass on our enormous thanks for the hard work you and your company put into selling our property and helping with the purchase of this house. We also want to thank you for your unfailing support, encouragement and cheerfulness through what was, for us, a very stressful time
I just wanted to pass on my thanks for all your tremendous work during the sale of our property. It's been a bit of a rollercoaster at times but you did a great job in lining up the buyers for us. From the get-go I've felt we're in good hand with Rural Scene. Estate agents don't always get the best press but I wouldn't hesitate to recommend you to anyone selling their smallholding.
I felt I must write to you both to express my gratitude for the work Abi Rhodes has done on the sale of M......... From the initial meeting she has demonstrated expert knowledge in our type of property that had just been lacking from other agents and filled us with confidence. Throughout the marketing and sale she has been thoroughly professional yet friendly in dealing with the 77 viewings we had to undertake to get to the final sale. Some of the people as we have neared the sale have frankly been rude and in some cases unpleasant and Abi has dealt with them all and shielded us from it completely. She has worked tirelessly to get us finally to completion. I would not hesitate in recommending your company to anyone looking to market the properties you work with.
