The house is believed to date back more than 200 years and had a large extension added about 100 years ago. In the agents opinion it makes a fine family home with space to keep a pony or general smallholding.
The owner of the property also owns the former Sarsen Kennels and Cattery next door , which is now closed. The vendor intends to remove the kennels and convert the remaining outbuildings into a bungalow (for which planning permission has recently been passed). If a purchaser was interested in purchasing the entire site, the vendor would be open to discussions.
The property lies adjacent to the A4 however the entrance drive comes off a side lane and it is emphasised that the house is orientated away from the road and it retains a good degree of privacy and seclusion.
The property is within the World Heritage Site and Scheduled Ancient Monument and is less than one mile from Avebury which is world renowned for its ancient stone circles and avenue. There is a village shop and post office in Avebury, a village school in West Overton and a filling station at Fyfield. The popular market town of Marlborough has a much wider range of shops and amenities.

Just a quick thank you to you and your company for the help we received from you all. Every conversation with staff members was pleasant and caring. We will definitely recommend Rural Scene to others.
I really don’t know how to thank you for the last 2 months of your time you have been priceless and you are amazing at what you do and have helped to change my life 💝💝💝💝 Due to how amazing you clearly are we have so much trust and respect for you that we are going to be delighted to place our cottage on the market with Rural Scene once we have moved and we would recommend you without hesitation to anybody needing to sell a rural property x
We just wanted to pass on our enormous thanks for the hard work you and your company put into selling our property and helping with the purchase of this house. We also want to thank you for your unfailing support, encouragement and cheerfulness through what was, for us, a very stressful time
I just wanted to pass on my thanks for all your tremendous work during the sale of our property. It's been a bit of a rollercoaster at times but you did a great job in lining up the buyers for us. From the get-go I've felt we're in good hand with Rural Scene. Estate agents don't always get the best press but I wouldn't hesitate to recommend you to anyone selling their smallholding.
I felt I must write to you both to express my gratitude for the work Abi Rhodes has done on the sale of M......... From the initial meeting she has demonstrated expert knowledge in our type of property that had just been lacking from other agents and filled us with confidence. Throughout the marketing and sale she has been thoroughly professional yet friendly in dealing with the 77 viewings we had to undertake to get to the final sale. Some of the people as we have neared the sale have frankly been rude and in some cases unpleasant and Abi has dealt with them all and shielded us from it completely. She has worked tirelessly to get us finally to completion. I would not hesitate in recommending your company to anyone looking to market the properties you work with.
