About this property

  • Daubeneys Farmhouse is an attractive Grade II* listed detached stone long house, situated in the heart of Colerne village. Daubeneys offers in excess of 3,400 sq ft of well appointed accommodation arranged over two floors within the main house and approaching 700 sq ft in the stylish oak and glazed cottage. The main house also has the benefit of being able to create a self-contained wing in the original stable section, which makes it ideal for those wanting to create an independent space for family members or to rent out. The home also has a wealth of period features with many traditional beams, wooden latch doors, open fireplaces with beautiful stone surrounds, and oak and elm wood floorboards.

    The property has a rich and interesting history; there are ancient inscriptions, the historic banner of William of Wykeham (Bishop of Winchester, founder of New College, Oxford who owned the property for several hundred years) and a very rare pinnacle chimney capping on the east gable end.

    The accommodation is well laid out with a large and welcoming entrance hall, sitting room with fine period fireplace, study and a spacious family kitchen/ breakfast room. The large family room offers a great venue for entertaining and comes complete with its own kitchenette and ground floor shower room. To the first floor from here is a large galleried bedroom area. This section of the home can be closed off to become self contained but is also a welcome addition to the original home.

    To the first floor are three further bedrooms, including the master with an en suite shower room, and a large family bathroom serving the other two. Additionally there is a cellar, two cloak rooms, laundry room and workshop (accessed from the rear courtyard).

    This beautifully appointed building offers versatile spacious accommodation with lofty ceilings and wonderful natural light. The cottage accommodation comprises a large open plan living area complete with kitchen area, wood burner and tall windows. There is a hallway leading off, which provides access to two double bedrooms and a bathroom. The cottage also has access to a private garden area laid to lawn and a timber deck seating area.

    The combination of both properties in this wonderful village location affords a unique and flexible opportunity for the home owner to have multi-generational living, a creative space or rental/ holiday let income.

    The property is approached off the High Street via a five-bar iron gate, which in turn leads into a large gravel parking/turning area and driveway. The gardens amount to just over 0.5 acres, are laid predominantly to lawn and are mostly enclosed by attractive stone walling. There are also a number of areas around the home offering the perfect setting for a spot of al fresco dining or simply providing a private area to relax. Off the back of the home and just off the kitchen/breakfast room is an enclosed terrace area ideal for entertaining. The gardens are established and well stocked with pretty flower borders and a number of mature shrubs and bushes.
