Vendors' thoughts: "We have very much enjoyed our time at the farmhouse and will cherish our happy memories. It has been a wonderful family home for us and so brilliantly located with Fairford and Cirencester nearby. Being on the edge of the village has been great yet we have also benefitted from complete privacy within the gardens and grounds. It is a very special home with so much to offer."
In a nutshell: The perfect country home set up!
Grange Farmhouse is a classic listed Cotswold stone farmhouse, ideally located on the edge of the village, providing both a sense of community whilst remaining wonderfully private with extensive grounds and views over the land.
The house has beautifully proportioned rooms with good ceiling heights and is ripe for modernisation. This would be a fabulous project to create a contemporary home, whilst retaining the character and charm of the farmhouse.
On the ground floor the kitchen is a generous size with a cornflour blue Aga. There are three further reception rooms, all with pretty views over the substantial gardens and grounds.
Over the first and second floors there are eight bedrooms and four bathrooms, each providing ample space and storage. There is plenty of scope to reconfigure the layout of the accommodation.
The Stable Cottage is an independent two bedroom home which does require modernisation but offers great potential to provide an additional income or to be used as ancillary accommodation to the main house.
The office, with spectacular views overlooking the large pond and gardens, is a generous home office split into two large rooms with downstairs kitchen and cloakroom.
Outside the garden is predominantly laid to lawn, interspersed with specimen trees and colourful herbaceous borders. There is an extremely productive vegetable garden with greenhouses and potting sheds more akin to a small nursery!
The sweeping driveway leads past the open Cotswold stone thatched roof garage and provides ample parking.
There is an array of outbuildings, barns and garages, all of which have individual purposes but offer great potential.
In all about 16 acres comprising gardens, pasture and woodland.
