A beautiful, spacious and extremely charming thatched cottage including excellent working from home office space. A recently refurbished home, poised at the foot of the Ridgeway, packed with quirky, original features and a large, private garden - the perfect space for the family with huge potential for your very own kitchen garden.

Attractively situated overlooking the village green, this beautiful Grade II listed thatched cottage has been fully renovated and refurbished within the last few years.

The period features include beautiful exposed chalk stone walls, exposed beams and Victorian brick tiled floors. It offers cosy, comfortable accommodation perfect for both summer months when thick walls keep you cool and winter months when the wood burning stoves warm hands, toes and hearts!

The entrance hall provides access into a stunning sitting room with fireplace, a wood burning stove and window seats. A second reception room provides an attractive family room or separate dining room warmed by a further wood burning stove and has a staircase to the first floor.

To the rear of the property is a light,open plan, family eat in kitchen with fitted contemporary stainless steel units, wooden work tops, an induction hob and fan assisted electric oven, which gives access to a good size utility room and boiler room. The kitchen also provides a second staircase to the first floor and to the stay at home study.

Upstairs are three good sized double bedrooms and a twin bedroom. One of the bedrooms offers an en-suite shower room and there is a separate family bathroom with roll top bath.

Outside to the rear is a large, private and enclosed garden laid mainly to lawn with borders and a gravelled seating area. There is ample space for a productive kitchen garden or for keeping chickens and the garden offers a greenhouse and garden shed. To the side of the property there is a concealed liquid propane gas tank which leads to a gravelled driveway (over which the neighbouring property has a right of way). With careful parking there is space for three vehicles adjacent to the detached garage - which is a large single with power and light connected.

Ashbury is a charming village, dating back to at least AD 840 and steeped in history, close to the famous White Horse Hill at Uffington, and part of a wildlife conservation area. It has a public house, the Rose and Crown Hotel (which includes a post office), a Church of England primary school and a village shop with tea room. The parish church of St Mary was originally Norman but was rebuilt in the 13th century. Here, the first Sunday School in England was founded in 1777 which developed into what became Church Aided Primary School education. Ashbury Mission Hall was a "tin tabernacle" building of corrugated iron opened in 1908. The building was replaced in 1972-73 with the present Ashbury Evangelical Free Church. Ashdown House, built in about 1660 and now run by the National Trust, is about two miles south of the village.

Nearby Shrivenham (c. 4 miles) is one of the larger villages in the Vale and has a number of shops, restaurants, public houses and a doctors' surgery as well as a primary school and Church of England and Methodist churches.

Ashbury is well located for access to the M4 motorway (c. 7 miles) and Swindon has mainline rail services.
