Siddington House, a period house and estate, with a helipad, helicopter hangar, tennis courts and four ancillary cottages, has gone up for sale near Swindon

The property, labelled as an equestrian facility, in Siddington just one-mile from Cirencester's cultural centre, has been listed on the property market on Rightmove for £6.5 million

The listing, from agent Kingsley Evans, describes it as 'an exceptional and rare opportunity to acquire one of the finest country homes within this area'. 

It is set within approximately 17.71 acres of beautiful gardens and grounds with three detached houses and two semi-detached properties, two tennis courts and a helicopter landing pad and aircraft hangar.

The main building is Grade II-listed, and is cited in Pevsner as a Home of Distinction, believed to date back to around 1840.

Inside, the property has been the subject of continual enhancements, offering a modern style within the traditional, period structure executed by the current owners who have been in residence for many years.

The period detail has been retained sympathetically, yet the immaculate finish makes it a turnkey home. Large Sash windows and full-length doors are woven into each angle of the building, filling the house with natural light.

Other features retained include stone mullion and stained glass windows to some aspects, panelled, high ceilings, and ornate coving making this an ambience of grandeur.

Measuring almost 7000 Sq Ft, the house which has been enhanced in a modern way while sympathetically retaining the period detail, is on a wonderful scale ideal for modern family living and with room for every eventuality.

Whilst undeniably grand, it is a house that flows offering manageable space and a balance of formal reception rooms with more casual living spaces.

It has eight to nine bedrooms, three of which have an en suite and five to six reception rooms. 

A cluster of five ancillary properties form part of Siddington House and its estate. These are a range of substantial buildings including four cottages and a barn that are all currently let on a short-term agreement, providing an excellent supplementary income.

To the west of Siddington House is the barn, which was converted to provide a substantial home for guests. This detached property offers 4 bedrooms, a kitchen with a hall/dining room, a study and a sitting room. Near to the barn is a double garage and ample parking.
