A large and imposing detached farmhouse dating back to the 17th century, with proportionately spacious accommodation and many original features.

Stallpits Farmhouse comprises a substantial detached rural home originally dating from the mid 1600s with a later Georgian extension. The property is conveniently situated just off the A420, with excellent access into Oxford and Swindon, and enjoys a truly rural aspect lying adjacent to a working farm and overlooking fields. Many original features are retained within this beautiful Grade II listed home including large sash windows with some shutters, beautiful fireplaces, exposed beams, original butcher's hooks and extensive flagstone floors.

The ground floor commences with a welcoming entrance hall extending into the oldest part of the house and widening into what would have been the original entrance which is now on the side of the property. Two matching reception rooms provide an attractive drawing room and dining room, both with ornate fireplaces and fitted coal effect gas fires. A cosy family room enjoys the warmth of a wood burning stove and French doors to the garden, leading through to an extensively fitted kitchen boasting a gas-fired Aga and Belfast sink, with a window seat, the perfect spot to enjoy your morning cup of coffee. To the rear is a substantial utility and boot room housing the

gas-fired boiler, plumbing for a washing machine and dishwasher and space for a tumble dryer. This room also is fitted with an electric hob for cooking in the summer months when the Aga is off. Off the inner hall is a useful pantry, a workshop with fitted storage and work bench, a study and a concealed staircase leading down to the cellar.

On the first floor is a master bedroom with en suite bathroom including a roll top bath. A door from the landing also provides access to this room, offering complete flexibility. There are four further generous double bedrooms, all with high ceilings, and a family bathroom which includes a corner bath and shower cubicle. The inner landing provides a staircase to the second floor and five further interconnecting attic rooms, carpeted, with power and light connected and suitable for a variety of different uses.

The property is approached by a gravelled driveway, which provides plenty of off-road parking and leads to the detached double garage, over which is the workshop/storage. The gardens lie predominantly to the front and the side, being laid to lawn with well-stocked

herbaceous borders and mature trees and shrubs, including a variety of fruiting trees and rose beds. To the side is a large paved terrace, designed to take maximum advantage of the afternoon and evening sunlight, and steps down to a sheltered garden with vegetable plot and greenhouse. To the north east elevation is a large paved area which would provide further parking as necessary or

storage for a caravan or trailer etc.

Shrivenham is one of the larger villages within the Vale of the White Horse and without question one of the most desirable in the area. The village is located circa 5 miles to the north east of Swindon and circa 5 miles to the south west of the market town of Faringdon. The village is ideally located for access to the M4 (8 minutes away) and the A420 leading to Oxford and beyond. The village itself has an extremely active community and a bypass built in 1984 ensures that Shrivenham's rural atmosphere is preserved. There is a lovely tree lined high street with shops, restaurants, public houses, a doctors' surgery, chemist, garage (for servicing and MoTs) village primary school, nursery and impressive Church, which has parts dating back to the 11th Century. There is a frequent bus service through the village from Swindon to Oxford and back, linking to rail services and airports.
