A detached period house which is understood to have been a number of estate cottages integrated and extended in later years to form, in the agent’s opinion, a lovely family home with great character. The property has an attractive open plan kitchen / breakfast room with high ceiling and a lovely rural outlook plus good sized reception and living accommodation. There is a recently constructed double garage with studio above and there are excellent equestrian facilities including American style barn with stabling as well as a manege and adjoining paddocks.
The property is situated on the outskirts of the small village of Charlton and is within walking distance of the Horse & Groom public house. The village also has a village hall and the famous Charlton Park Estate. The nearby attractive Cotswold Towns of Malmesbury and Tetbury are within easy driving distance and offer a wide range of facilities and amenities. The M4 is also easily accessed to the south. By crossing over the road directly from the property there is access onto a small country lane and within a short distance there is access to a bridleway and lovely outriding in the area.

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.
