Welcome to Lower Buryhill Farm, a property that offers so much seclusion that unless you know where it is, you simply would not find it. Turning off the main road, the driveway borders farmland and continues along into woodland, where mature trees throw shadows across the sweeping driveway. Continue along and to your right, you catch your first glimpse of Lower Buryhill Farm and we think you will do just as we did: stop for a moment and enjoy all that the property offers; the house, the gardens, the land and most of all, the complete and utter privacy that this home enjoys.
The property is located in the village of Braydon which is a scattered rural hamlet on the North Wiltshire/Gloucestershire border. The adjacent market town of Royal Wootton Bassett is approximately three miles away, providing a wide range of shopping and leisure facilities, whilst further amenities can be found in the larger centres of Bath, Bristol, Cirencester and Swindon. The Cotswolds and Cotswold Water Park are just a short drive away.
The area has good communications with excellent access to the M4 motorway at Junction 16 (approximately four miles away) and Kemble provides a mainline railway station with a regular train service to London Paddington in about 55 minutes. The area is also well-served by a good range of both state and independent schools.
Returning to the property, the home is just as good on the inside as it is on the outside. Originally constructed in 1842, the house has seen many changes throughout its 178 year life and today affords a property that enjoys five double bedrooms, a number of reception rooms to compliment the bedrooms, a modern kitchen/breakfast room and a host of outbuildings, plus a detached two-storey home office, perfect for those now splitting the working week between home and the city.
The front door leads into the entrance hall, which is in the original part of the property and from here, access is gained into one of the three ground floor rooms that the property enjoys. The three formal reception rooms are: the living room, family room and the dining room.
The family room forms part of the later additions to the property and is flooded with natural light from the large double glazed window and additional French doors which lead into the garden. The room is complimented by engineered wood flooring and inset spotlights to the ceiling.
The living room enjoys a wood burning fire inset to the corner of the room, painted beams and French doors that lead into the large conservatory and gives a wonderful overview of the formal gardens and adjoining paddock with oak trees which sits to the head of the garden and features an array of mature and established trees.
The third formal reception room is the dining room, which is also in the original part of the house and because of this, has a wonderful feel about it. The bay fronted window enjoys an expansive view over the front garden and of the woodland approach to the property. From the dining room, French doors lead into the kitchen/breakfast room.
The kitchen is spacious and benefits from granite worksurfaces whilst enjoying a wealth of fitted units and an array of fitted appliances, to include the freestanding range cooker, a full-size dishwasher and fridge/freezer. To the right of the kitchen is the breakfast room, which will comfortably house a six-seater table and chairs. French doors from the room lead to the rear of the property, allowing access to a patio area with vine covered pergola and a formal garden with summer house.
Completing the ground floor accommodation is a study and also a utility room, found off the dining room which, in turn, gives access through a small conservatory to the rear of the property. Here, there is a vegetable garden and greenhouse, a raised decked terrace and a hot tub for one to enjoy of an evening or on a lazy weekend.
Moving upstairs a split-level landing gives access to the five bedrooms, all of which are double rooms. Starting with the master bedroom, which is lovely and light, this enjoys an en-suite bathroom, walk-in wardrobe area and French doors which lead onto the roof terrace. This area is favourable with the current owners as this is where they enjoy their morning coffee whilst watching the family of deer that frequent the grounds.
Moving through the rooms, the guest bedroom also benefits from an en-suite bathroom and fitted wardrobes, whilst bedrooms three and four also offer fitted storage. Bedroom three also has French doors which lead onto the roof terrace. Completing the upstairs accommodation is the four-piece family bathroom which is modern yet in keeping with the style of property that is Lower Buryhill Farm.
The main property enjoys approx. 2,800 square feet of accommodation, yet in total the property offers 5,600 square feet of accommodation and this extra space is found in the outbuildings that the home enjoys. For those would-be buyers who are car enthusiasts and need cover or workshops for a classic car, or an ultra-modern sports car, you won't find yourself wanting.
For those thinking of using the land for equestrian purposes, the option to build stables and even an indoor ménage is certainly possible.
In total there are four separate buildings, which we have classed as: the barn, integral garage (measuring 6.8m x 5.1m), workshop and finally, the outbuilding. The largest outbuilding of them all is the barn, measuring 10.80m x 10.20m, or 35ft by 35ft, and gives enough space for a multitude of cars, motor bikes, caravan or even a boat.
The barn benefits from light and power and a large opening to the side of the building.
Finally, there is the two-storey home office, used for a multitude of purposes over the years, from a gym to a games room and a cinema room. The building enjoys light, power and electric heating as well as TV and satellite connection. There is also a log burner inset to the chimney breast, although the new owners would need to connect to a flue prior to use.
Moving onto the gardens, what can we say. They are large, flat, and exceptionally well cared for. In the main the gardens are simply laid to lawns and surrounded by mature trees which represent a scaled down version of Westonbirt Arboretum with its own woodland track and we imagine that throughout the seasons, one will enjoy the vast array of colours these trees will produce.
To the rear of the home is a garden that has been planted with an array of plants and shrubs, providing colour in the Spring and Summer seasons. From this part of the garden, a five-bar wooden gate leads into the oak tree paddock which is full of mature trees which have been planted throughout the years.
