A stunning village house, which has been lovingly refurbished and restored to create a home of an exceptional standard.

This stunningly renovated family house has been lovingly restored to its former glory, the attention to detail and nod to practicality ensure this is a home anyone would choose to live in.

Previously empty for a few years the house had fallen into disrepair and needed major works on all parts including the roof. The restoration has attended to all the issues, moved light switches to sensible places, repaired and insulated the roof including moving a loft hatch. There are new radiators, water tank, boiler, oil tank and electric circuits, everything to create an impressive contemporary home.

The entrance hall has oak parquet flooring throughout and stairs leading to the first floor. An original door leads to the rear of the house. There is a beautiful dual aspect sitting room with an impressive fire place complete with contemporary wood burning stove and dual aspect windows with a light and airy touch.

To the left of the entrance hall is the snug, cosy with the contemporary wood burner, and windows on both sides of the house. In between the snug and the kitchen is a hallway with a stable door to the outside, more of a boot room with ceramic tiles which look like limestone, there is a downstairs cloakroom and a door leading to the Garden Room.

The Garden Room is stunning, with underfloor heating and sliding doors on three sides, it is surrounded by a sympathetically restored moat water feature which is a picture in the summer with water lilies.

The kitchen-diner-family room is a generous size room with windows on three aspects, overlooking the garden and adjacent fields. There is an Aga, pantry and an island unit, finished with Dekton worktops, higher quality than quartz, and plenty of storage. There is plenty of space for a table and a comfy seating area, including a window seat with clever storage.

On the first floor there are four double bedrooms and a family bathroom. The master bedroom has been beautifully refurbished to become a haven of tranquillity with a modern en-suite shower room and plenty of built in wardrobes. Two of the bedrooms have built in storage with bedroom two having double doors leading to a small balcony with far reaching views over the unspoilt countryside.

The garden wraps around three sides of the property with a generous gravel driveway between the house and detached garage. There is a west facing terrace overlooking adjacent farmland and to the rear the garden has an abundance of mature trees, shrubs and hedging enclosing it whilst enjoying the southerly aspect. There has been some intuitive planting in the garden providing colour throughout the year.

The entrance from the lane is via a wrought iron gate onto the spacious gravel drive and parking area. The double garage has electric roller doors and has plenty of storage, a door at the back leads to an enclosed covered bin storage area with a game cupboard for hanging game.

A separate door leads to a utility area with planned space for a washing machine and tumble drier and an adjacent shower room, upstairs there is an impressive room which has plenty of versatility, a loft-like space above the garage which would work particularly well as an office, gym, or ancillary accommodation, subject to the usual permissions. It is crowned with a chiming four face clock on the roof which has also been restored.

Foxham is quiet village with a pub, church and village hall. It is less than 1 mile to Christian Malford which has a primary school, village shop/post office, and recreation field with amenities and children's play area. The market town of Chippenham offers a comprehensive range of shopping facilities and amenities including a sports/leisure centre and main line rail services (Paddington 75 minutes) and within easy reach of the Georgian city of Bath, with its many cultural, leisure and shopping attractions. Tetbury and Cirencester, two typical Cotswold's towns, are within easy access, and the M4 motorway (Junctions 17 & 18) provides fast road access to London, Bristol, Swindon and the South West.

Foxham is in the 1086 Domesday book as Cadenham, with ten dwellings, Cadenham Manor House is only a few hundred metres away from The Gables. Foxham hasn't had many new houses built in nearly 1000 years.
