The property, believed to date from 1847, is located in the heart of the village of Ashton Keynes and within the conservation area. The property is in need of general updating but offers a great opportunity to modernise and potentially extend this three bedroom detached period property (subject to the relevant permissions). It is being offered with vacant procession.
A centrally located entrance doorway between the two bay windows on the front elevation leads to a hallway with access either side to a reception room and a dining. Both rooms have views over the large front garden and feature fire places. From the dining room a doorway leads to the utility with the original fire place and larder. An external door provides access to the rear and the outbuildings. The red quarry tile flooring of the utility continues through to the kitchen with a range of wall and base units.
Upstairs are two double bedrooms with bay windows overlooking the garden and the third, single bedroom to the rear. To complete the first floor accommodation is a bathroom with a white suite comprising a bath, pedestal sink and low level WC.
Grounds and Gardens
The garden is approached via a gate to the side of the property from Fore St and a path leads to the rear and front. Mature planting encloses the garden along the Fore St boundary and with the neighbour to the front and a close boarded fence to the other side boundary. The path to the front is bordered by a dwarf stone planter with lawn beyond and a central path way leads through a hedge dividing the formal garden from the vegetable garden. The garden is a good size and southerly facing. To the rear of the house is a red brick outbuilding which fronts Kent End. A covered passageway links the rear door with the outbuilding, which is currently split into three areas; a garage with access to Kent End, a workshop and store with original hand water pump. There is also a wood/coal store.
This popular village is situated on the Wiltshire/Gloucestershire border and enjoys a number of local facilities including a Church, a well-regarded school, two large playing fields, community shop and a public house. There is also a tennis club in the village, golf, riding, and sailing close by at the Cotswold Water Park. Further facilities can be found in the market town of Cirencester. There are main line railway services to London (Paddington) from Kemble and good road communications via the M4, junctions and M5 motorway.
