Continue for approximately ¾ mile and take the second right-hand turn. Easton Farmhouse is the first residence on the right-hand side after approx. ¼ mile.

SITUATION

A picturesque and intriguing property with modern amenities. Good local shopping, sporting and schooling facilities in Corsham and Chippenham, with more comprehensive amenities available in Bath and Swindon, which are both within convenient travelling distance.

PROPERTY

Easton Farmhouse was let with Easton Farm up until 2001. It was surrendered to the Estate by the same family that had worked the land there since before 1780. The farm freehold was acquired by the present owner's ancestors at that time. The property is arranged over two floors (including the converted former cheese room) and has an extensive walled garden. It will be let in September and whilst the afore-mentioned farm buildings are not included, they are not at the disposal of any third party; nor are they put to any disruptive use.
