Situation

Warrens Cross Farm is situated about one mile to the west of the market town of Lechlade in Gloucestershire. The property is well positioned just off the A417 road, with both Fairford and Lechlade providing a good range of day to day shopping facilities. The larger centres of Cirencester and Burford (each about 10 miles) provide more extensive shopping and recreational requirements.

The area is noted for its excellent range of schools, including those at Fairford, Hatherop, Burford, Cheltenham and Oxford. Recreational opportunities include delightful Cotswold walks, theatres in Oxford and Cheltenham, racing at Stratford and Cheltenham, golf at Burford and Cirencester and polo at Cirencester Park.

The Property

Warrens Cross Farmhouse comprises a charming period farmhouse, believed to date back to the early 1700's and sympathetically extended and improved by the current Owners when it was purchased during the 1980's. The house is approached from the public highway over a gravel drive leading to a gravel parking area adjacent to the house. The house contains numerous period features.

The accommodation of the house comprises 4 reception rooms, kitchen, utility room, conservatory, 5 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and a shower room.

Gardens and Grounds

To the front (west) of the house there are delightful gardens comprising lawns, shrubberies and flower borders, bounded to the north by a tall brick and stone wall, providing privacy from the adjoining road. There is a pond and a stream runs through the gardens, over which there are two stone bridges. Beyond the stream there is a semi-wooded area in a pretty setting and a gateway to the main road, which is now closed.

The gardens are overlooked by an attractive terrace adjoining the conservatory on the southern side of the house. From the back door there is an open porch leading to a walled garden and an external cloakroom. There is a garage and a range of traditional buildings, including a tallet barn with external steps leading to a first floor games room and a single storey range in "L"shape.

The Farmland

The land is all in permanent grass, extending to about 27.82 acres (11.26 hectares). It lies to the south and east of the farmhouse in five main field enclosures bordered by a lake in the ownership of Gloucestershire Wildlife Trust on the southern boundary. The fields have stock proof fencing and are supplied with water to troughs. There are a number of useful farm buildings, including a three bay pole barn near to the house and a three bay Dutch barn and a pole barn situated in the centre of the land. An earth bund runs along the northern boundary of the land, providing privacy against the adjoining main road.
