Braydon is a small rural hamlet situated within the M4 corridor and we understand there is a good local community. Nearby Royal Wootton Bassett has a wide range of shopping facilities and amenities and a busy high street with a number of small independent shops as well as supermarkets, etc. the M4 (junction 16) is also readily accessible to the property to the south, also the pretty towns of Cricklade and Malmesbury are both within easy access.
The property itself has been extensively refurbished by the vendors and in the agents opinion offers comfortable and contemporary living with a very nice open plan living kitchen / dining room as well as a recently fitted ground floor shower room and WC. There is also a utility room and sitting room to the ground floor with three bedrooms and a recently fitted spacious shower room to the first floor.
The property has been utilised by the vendors for private residential and private equestrian use with superb equestrian facilities including a recently erected American barn stable building, adjoining manege and paddocks.
We understand the property falls within both the country as well as the Vale of the White Horse, and there are various local pony club meets. The property is also within short boxing distance of the Cotswold Water Park where there are rides and there are bridleways in the area including Ravensroost Woods nearby.
Locally there is both state and private schooling including Hatherop Castle, Prior Park in Cricklade as well as schools and colleges in Cirencester.

We understand this Planning Permission could be extant due to some of the works having been undertaken, however this would need to be clarified and verified with the local council

There are front lawned areas with chestnut and cherry trees whilst round to the rear there is a large and very private decked area with further lawns beyond and a number of raised beds. There is a rear outside boiler and oil storage tank within the gardens there is also a garden shed. The vendors have also made this garden area as dog proof as possible.
The Superb Equestrian Facilities adjoin the house and gardens. The vendors have invested a lot of time and money into producing hardcore roadways which provide excellent access to both the equestrian facilities and to the paddocks with central roadway leading down through the main paddocks.

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.
