A wonderful period family house

This handsome period house was built in the Victorian period and had typically well-proportioned rooms, with good ceiling heights and large sash windows which flood the rooms with light. The accommodation is well-balanced and ideal for modern family living. The drawing room and dining room are perfect for formal entertaining and have a lovely outlook over the gardens. The kitchen/breakfast room is west-facing and has a flagstone floor and an Aga.

There are three bedrooms and two bathrooms on the first floor, including a main suite. Four further bedrooms and a bathroom are on the second floor.

This property has 4 acres of land.

Outside

Approached down a long graveled driveway, leading past a paddock on the left, there is a gravelled parking area by the front door. To the rear of the house is a large traditional period barn. In 2003 planning permission was granted (now expired) for its conversion to form two residential dwellings. It provides ample scope (subject to planning) for various uses such as stabling or a home office(s).

The gardens and grounds are delightful. Lying mainly to the west of the house, they comprise lawns and borders and an old timber-framed greenhouse. There are lovely westerly views to the countryside beyond. To the south of the house is a level paddock, suitable for horses.

Situation

Church Farm House occupies a very discreet setting in the village, approached down a private driveway and set back behind its paddock. Oaksey is a thriving village with a shop, pub (The Wheatsheaf), school, church and village hall. The market towns of Malmesbury and Cirencester are both 7 miles, both having a good range of everyday shops and services as well as more specialist suppliers, bars and restaurants. There are good communications being about 5 miles from the A419 for dual carriageway access to Junction 15 of the M4 at Swindon. Main line rail service to London Paddington from Kemble Station (3 miles) scheduled to take from 70 minutes.

There is an excellent range of both state and private schools in the area. The latter include Westonbirt, Beaudesert Park, Pinewood, St. Mary’s Calne and the Cheltenham Colleges.

Ample local sporting opportunities with many equestrian events including polo at Cirencester Park and Westonbirt, racing at Cheltenham and Newbury, Badminton Horse Trials, and a number of golf courses.

Directions

From Cirencester take the A429 for Malmesbury. Go through Kemble and past the airfield on your right. Take the next turning left for Oaksey. Continue into the village, passing the school on your right and the entrance to Church Farm House is on your left, immediately before the church on your right.
