    About this property

    • Common Farm lies in the parish of Braydon on the Wiltshire/Gloucestershire border. The house is on the edge of the village and enjoys views across surrounding farmland. Forming part of the property are an excellent range of farm buildings and grazing land. As such the property is ideal for those with equestrian or livestock interests, although the buildings are capable of fulfilling a number of different requirements.

      The property comprises a pleasing stone built farmhouse which has been much improved by the present owners. The porch leads into a large entrance hall which doubles as a study. Adjacent is the superb drawing room with an impressive stone fire place and wood burning stove. There could be direct access into the dining room off which is the conservatory. Both of these reception rooms are excellent for entertaining. Directly off the dining room is the well fitted kitchen which is adjacent to the boot/utility room and off which is the cloakroom. Two staircases lead up to the first floor where there are five bedrooms and two bathrooms. The main bedroom area could form a completely separate suite.

      The house is approached through security gates with a gravelled driveway sweeping round to the house where there is a large parking area. The drive also continues to the farm buildings where there is a large hardstanding area. To the front of the house are attractive mature grounds with specimen trees and expanses of lawn. There is a potential kitchen garden area presently used as a hen run. To the rear of the house is a further lawn area with sitting out area. There is a secondary vehicular access off the lane.

      Close to the house are the extensive farm buildings which include a 4 bay Dutch barn with American barn style stabling (5 stalls). There are also numerous stores and workshops which could have a variety of uses. In addition there is a partly completed holiday cottage which has been designed to provide two bedrooms, bathroom and a good sized kitchen/breakfast room. It is rare to find a property with such good facilities particularly when coupled with an easily managed house.

      The grazing land is split between two paddocks and amounts to about 6 acres. In total the whole property extends to 7.6 acres.
