Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 5
This detached family house believed to date from the mid-19th Century and has a classically symmetrical Georgian style front facade. It is Listed Grade II as being of special architectural and historical interest.

The house has been tenanted for many years and although perfectly habitable, it is fair to say it would now benefit from

updating and refurbishment. The accommodation, which extends to just under 2,250 square feet, is arranged over three floors and the majority of the rooms have high ceilings and are south facing giving it a lovely light and airy feel. Period features include sash windows, with shutters fitted to those on the ground floor, picture hanging rails, a fireplace in the sitting room and a lovely semicircular fanlight over the front door.

The property has the potential to provide an excellent family home and in addition to the main house, there is a substantial former coach house/stables close by, which could potentially be used to provide ancillary living space for a dependent relative or guests, as a home office, a gym or a studio, subject to obtaining the relevant planning and listed building consents. Planning consent has been granted in the past but has now lapsed.

A tree lined gravel drive leads off the no through lane through wooden 5 bar gates to a car parking area to the side and rear of the house. Adjacent to the parking area there is a pretty, detached stone former coach house which could provide a number of uses as described above, including garaging. There are various other outbuildings, which are in a poor state of repair but offer

potential. The good sized garden lies mainly to the front and side of the property and is principally laid to lawn interspersed by a variety of trees, shrubs and bushes. The garden and orchard space are a blank canvas and also offer great potential.

The Swindon to Kemble railway line runs just to the north of Widham Grove but it is well screened and not a busy line.

Mains water and electricity are connected. Private drainage. Oil fired central heating

We would advise any interested parties to review the planning applications ref: 11/02574/OUT and 12/04009/OUT relating to proposed development of housing to the west of the property. The land is well screened from the house. There is no guarantee further applications will
