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.
