  • Set In Approx. 1.2 Acres with Paddocks and Mature Gardens and Grounds 
  • A Spacious Detached Four Bedroom House
  • Stable Block with Two Loose Boxes and Stores
  • In Popular and Accessible Rural Village Location with Easy M4 Access

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.

Adjoining the house to the right hand side as faced there is also a Further Double Garage with rear window, pedestrian door to rear and door to front.

The property is approached off of the village High Street via its own private driveway which leads to a large parking and turning area to the front of the house, with front garden area and mature hedging screening it from the village street.  The driveway then continues on to the left hand side of the house and down to the Stable Yard.

There is a purpose built Stable Yard with two Loose Boxes, Tack / Store Room and Rear Log Store Area (see plan).

There is also an outside tap to the stable yard and immediately to the side there is a small Turnout Paddock with a lovely view to the village church.

There are then lovely mature gardens and grounds to the rear with lawned areas, flower and shrub perennial beds and a Seating Area.

This in turn adjoins the Main Paddock, which comprises one block of fairly level pasture land.


 (About 0.5 Hectare)

The land may be subject to Covenants and the vendors intend to place an Uplift Clause on the paddock in respect of future development
