THE PROPERTY

An historic village house with a delightful garden. With 17th Century origins, Harberts Cottage is one of the oldest buildings in the village and enjoys a rich history. The current owners have extended the original two cottages to create a comfortable and characterful family home. On the ground floor there is an entrance porch leading to the inner hall off which is the cloakroom. The dining room, study and sitting room are in the old part of the house. To the other side of the hall lies the more recent kitchen with its lovely light breakfast area and family room with French doors to the garden. On the first floor there are four double bedrooms and a family bathroom, the master bedroom having an en-suite bathroom and a gorgeous view over the garden and fields beyond. The second bedroom also has a shower room and hand basin. There is a useful inner landing and stairs lead up to two double attic rooms with lots of storage in the eaves. The delightful garden catches the sun from both the east and the west and enjoys two patios - the lower attracts the morning sun and the upper the afternoon/evening sun. The lawn is bordered with some lovely mature planting including a huge selection of David Austin roses. There is a fenced vegetable plot with raised beds, including a mature asparagus bed. There are several fruit trees and a large shed. There is private gravelled parking and a double garage. Situated on the Gloucestershire/Wiltshire borders, the popular and sought after village of Ashton Keynes enjoys a number of local facilities including a church, primary school, a village shop and a public house. There are tennis, cricket and football clubs in the village and a pre-school located within the village hall. There is a vast array of community groups and activities. Many water sports are on hand at the Cotswold Water Park and neighbouring South Cerney has an 18 hole golf course. Cirencester, often referred to as the Capital of the Cotswolds, is 6 miles away and has supermarkets, shops and boutiques, restaurants and a theatre. There are railway services to London Paddington from Kemble (78 minutes) and good road links via the M4 and M5 motorways.
