Situated in a beautiful elevated position within the hamlet of Sevenhampton is this substantial and impressive period home, in approximately 3/4 of an acre, with a detached stone-built detached garage and gravelled driveway with large oak electric double gates.
The original part of the cottage is believed to date back to early Victorian times and was further extended approximately thirty years ago. The property is presented to a very high standard, offering spacious and highly flexible accommodation throughout, with a modern fitted family kitchen, improved further by the current owners, and sympathetic redecoration throughout the property.
On the first floor is a substantial master bedroom with far-reaching views over the village, with the benefit of a good selection of fitted wardrobe cupboards and eaves storage. The second bedroom enjoys spectacular views to the front of the property, over the village church and the idyllic countryside beyond. There is a further double bedroom, a refitted family shower room and a separate family bathroom all leading from a generous galleried landing.
To the front of the property, the central formal sitting room provides access to the first floor and the primary ground floor living accommodation, with immediate access to the study room/bedroom four. There is a further reception room situated off the main kitchen area, with a contemporary marble fireplace with fitted flame-effect electric fire. Adjacent to the family kitchen is a large newly-refitted utility room, side lobby/boot room and a cloakroom.
Outside, the extensive and established gardens lie to both the front and rear of the property, being predominantly laid to lawn with a large variety of mature shrubs, trees and a pretty pond area. The vast gravel driveway provides off-road parking for several vehicles accessed by large oak electric gates, leading to a detached double garage with electric doors and power and light connected.
This lovely home has lapsed planning permission to extend, to provide further flexible reception space, a master bedroom with en suite facility and a new family bathroom. More information can be found on the Swindon Borough Council website at using the following reference number: S/HOU/17/1433.
Sevenhampton is a small village between Shrivenham and Highworth. Nearby are Wrag Barn Golf Course and Roves Farm Visitor Centre, a family-run farm park, offering lots of hands-on farmyard fun including tractor-trailer rides, animal feeding and handling and large indoor and outdoor play areas.
Highworth, about six miles north-east of Swindon town centre, is within easy reach of all main roads and Junction 15 of the M4. Mainline railway services run from Swindon.
The centre of the town offers a range of local independent and some better known stores, including the especially charming Bloomfields Delicatessen, and there is a market on Saturdays. There is a primary school, secondary school, doctors' surgery, a dentist and a leisure centre.
