THE PROPERTY

Buckland Fields Farm is a beautiful detached brick-built house with stone quoins and tiled roof, in a lovely setting, lending itself to a wide range of potential buyers with different requirements, and providing scope for different uses for the buildings and land. Originally dating back to the late 18th century, the house incorporates traditional features, with ceiling timbers, stone and brick inglenook fireplace with flagstone hearth to the drawing room, and exposed roof timbers to the second floor, together with built in cupboards. These are combined with modern double glazed upvc windows, oil fired central heating LP gas 4 oven Aga, and very well-proportioned rooms, mostly dual aspect, with views to the east towards the Cotswold escarpment. Whilst the property will benefit from updating, the accommodation is substantial, with 6 bedrooms, two bathrooms, one en suite to the master bedroom, three generous reception rooms and a large kitchen/ breakfast room, as well as a large utility room. The property is approached by a long, shared drive, to a turning circle with a cedar tree and private parking. There are lawned gardens to the front and side of the house, with shrub, rose and herbaceous beds, along with a greenhouse. The outbuildings are extensive, extending in all to over 13,500 square feet, and are a combination of traditional barns and more modern buildings. There are 3 garages and 3 open fronted carports. To the west side of the house lies a peaceful courtyard, part flagstone, part concrete and part gravelled, with shrub and rose beds, acacia and ornamental cherry trees. Beside the house is a traditional brick and stone barn with stores and stable and stairs to a loft above. To the west side of the courtyard is a very fine tythe barn, with two pairs of driftway doors, part flagstone floor, loft storage to much of the barn, an underfelted and tiled roof with fine structural timbers supported by modern steelwork. The south side of the courtyard has a more modern timber clad range of stores, tool store and loggia, with a tiled roof and concrete floors. Traditional livestock building of concrete frame construction, measuring approximately 60 x 40 feet, opening to the fields with concrete yard adjoining lower yard with a range of part open fronted stores with brick piers, field shelter and timber framed lean-to store. There is also a large 8 bay steel frame tall Dutch barn with cladding to three sides, measuring approximately 118 x 24 feet. Beside the drive is an orchard of traditional mature fruit trees including pear, walnut, apple and cherry, protected by a Tree Preservation Order. Behind the buildings is a level pasture field, with two further grass fields to the east side of the house, with a gentle slope to the south, making the property well suited to agricultural, hobby farming or equestrian use, and subject to necessary consents might provide a grass gallop or landing strip. Buckland Fields is located between Broadway and Aston Somerville with stunning views back up the escarpment with Broadway Tower at the top and panoramic views to the West. Broadway with its numerous pubs and restaurants, nestles at the foot of the Cotswold escarpment at the southern tip of Worcestershire. The rolling countryside and green fields, quiet back lanes and footpaths where you can wander undisturbed, along with its broad and busy high street, all form part of the unique character that is Broadway. Communications to and from Broadway are excellent, with the A40/M40 to the south east providing fast access to London (95 miles), and the M5 (J9) to the west (13 miles) providing access to both the West Country and the North. There is a regular mainline train service from Moreton-in-Marsh (9 miles) to London Paddington taking approximately 90 minutes Shopping for day to day needs are well catered for by the local village shops, whilst more comprehensive facilities can be found at Evesham (6 miles), Cheltenham (15 miles) and Stratford upon Avon (17 miles) Sporting facilities in the area include racing at Cheltenham, a golf course at Broadway, and many local equestrian facilities.
