Built c.1750, Calcutt Farmhouse is an imposing Grade II listed Georgian farmhouse built in Cotswold stone under a stone tiled roof. The semi detached property, offers a rare opportunity and potential to redevelop the farmhouse into two separate dwellings or to refurbish the existing dwelling to its former glory (subject to planning). The current layout includes approximately 3500 sq.ft of accommodation across some 18 rooms whilst a former consent granted in 2008 (Wiltshire Planning Reference N/08/00129/FUL now lapsed), permitted this division and to allow the conversion of the north wing attics to gain a further 800 sq ft if required. Please note this permission and Listed Building Consent would need to be renewed with a new application.
The property has a great deal of character with flag-stone flooring in the current kitchen with an Aga, a large Inglenook fireplace in the dining room and original Georgian shell-backed niche/cupboard in the sitting room, with its wood-burning stove. Access to the first floor is currently via two staircases, where there are five bedrooms and two bathrooms whilst another staircase leads to two large attic rooms, which have planning permission for dormer windows.
The property is located at the end of a new access road and has parking for numerous vehicles. There are two south facing walled gardens. One has a good sized lawned area and well stocked boarder, greenhouse and productive kitchen garden. Whilst the other walled garden to the front is gravelled and leads around to the rear of the house where there is a fully functional well and verandah on oak posts. SITUATION
The property is located near the town of Cricklade at Calcutt at the end of a private road backing onto farmland and set behind walled gardens behind the dual carriageway. Cricklade is about 5 minutes by car and has a delightful High Street which provides a good range of shops, cafe's and bars and has its own leisure centre as well as an infant, preparatory and primary schools. Situated equidistant from Cirencester and Swindon, both offer further primary and secondary schools and a wide range of shops and services.
The A419 provides excellent access to both the M4 via Swindon and the M5 via Gloucester and easy commuting to Cheltenham, Bath, Bristol and Reading. The nearest train station is Swindon where the journey to London Paddington is about an hour.
