Are you a big fan of Crufts? So are the owners of this house, which has hosted dog competitions.

This house in Haydon Wick is unique and has everything you could need to turn your pup into a prize-winner and was once the site of dog shows.

Located on Pond Street, SN25, the freehold is on the market for £850,000 with agent Home Finders.

The house itself is a Grade II listed farmhouse, believed to date back to 1653 with five double rooms and four reception rooms over three floors.

The hallway has ‘beautiful’ flagstones and leads round a corner to the sitting room on the left and the dining room on the right.

Both have functional woodburning stoves, while the bespoke kitchen has an Aga-style cooker and hob, and bright yellow fittings.

Also on the ground floor is a newly fitted shower room, despite there being no bedrooms which are up the ‘substantial’ oak stairs and also have fireplaces.

Above that on the second floor are two more double rooms.

Outside is where the fun is, however, with an exercise arena for dogs including tunnels, cones for a slalom, and an A-frame for dogs with high aspirations to climb.

Back in 2016, the Adver reported that around 150 of ‘the town’s cutest canines’ descended on Haydon Wick Farmhouse to strut their stuff in front of judges.

The event, at Janet’s Puppy Skool, was held to raise funds for Children in Need, and later broadcast on the BBC.

Dogs were judged on which had the waggiest tail, the friendliest, the dog the judges would most like to take home and the pooch that performed the best trick.

There was also a special category just for puppies called ‘Agility against the Clock’, in which the youngest dogs gave their best effort to impress the judges.

Apart from its venerable history, this house is also well in a great location near the ‘bustle of north Swindon’.

The agent adds: “This 17th century house is nestled along a no through, quiet lane, yet within striking distance of the bustle of north Swindon and its excellent amenities and schooling.”

The asking price of the house has dropped by £45,000 since it was first listed on March 14.

It is still being sold for more than double the average sale price of £385,060 in SN25 in the last 12 months.
