THE PROPERTY

A substantial family home sitting in around 12 acres. More land is available. A glorious and very well-presented six bedroom family house with views over unspoilt countryside yet remaining within 15 minutes' drive of the thriving market town of Cirencester. Lower Moor Manor, a period farm house offering wonderful equestrian facilities including post and rail paddocks in a peaceful and private setting. The house, which originally dates back to the early 1800s and is arranged over three floors, has a wealth of character features including stone mullion windows, stone fireplaces, oak timbers and flagstone floors. The rooms are all of good proportions. The land extends to around 12 acres or thereabouts and consists of paddocks, mature woodland, and a walled garden. The paddocks are set up for horses and are mostly post and rail. The driveway leads to a gravelled parking area, garaging and the pretty Clock House which has planning permission to convert into a two bedroom dwelling. As well as the pasture land there are a series of delightful gardens and seating areas, a pond, hard surface tennis court and a walled garden ideal for vegetables, or perhaps a swimming pool? With a wonderful aspect overlooking its own land and open countryside beyond, Lower Moor Manor is in a fantastic position and is lined with hedgerows and mature trees around its perimeter. There is a range of existing outbuildings including an American barn and a Dutch barn - some of which could, subject to the necessary planning consent, be converted to give additional living accommodation or indeed they could be upgraded to provide further equestrian buildings. In all the property provides an excellent and sought after lifestyle. Minety is a popular village with facilities including primary school, pre-school and two public houses. Day-to-day shopping can be found at Ashton Keynes, Cricklade, Cirencester or Malmesbury - all of which are within reasonable distances. For commuters, the M4 is accessed at junction 16 (Swindon West about 15 miles) and a mainline rail station at Kemble on the Paddington line (about 5 miles).
