Imposing Grade II Georgian home in the heart of this idyllic downland village. Flexible and spacious accommodation to suit all your family and entertaining needs

The Old Manor is an imposing Georgian Grade II listed property situated in the highly desirable village of Bourton which lies two and half miles south of Shrivenham in the glorious Vale of the White Horse

This dressed stone house was originally two separate dwellings that have been seamlessly combined to create a stunning home with flexible living accommodation to suit every need. Upon entering, you are greeted by a hall with rooms on both sides and ahead is the staircase to the first floor. To the front of the property is the drawing room with handmade, bespoke bookcases, open fireplace and wonderfully high ceilings. On the other side of the hall sits a family room with shutters, a fireplace, and an original Georgian alcove. This would make a wonderful snug to curl up with the children in front of the fire in the depths of winter. Further along the hallway, to the rear of the house, is the vendors' current dining room, which also includes the original alcove and floor to ceiling cupboard. Equally, this room could also be re-purposed as a study, dining room or fifth bedroom. There is a superb kitchen diner which has recently been refurbished and crafted by John Lewis of Hungerford. Ample Shaker-style floor and wall mounted units offer an array of storage positioned under solid marble work surfaces. Integrated appliances include a Rangemaster Nexus cooker, dishwasher and inbuilt bin system, and the abundance of Georgian features is continued. From here you are led through to a Victorian extension which houses a large laundry room and accommodates all further white goods. There is also a larder cupboard where the fridge / freezer is housed and access to the rear garden. Completing the ground floor accommodation is a well-equipped bathroom. Upstairs the sense of space, style and elegance continues. The master bedroom and large second bedroom are to the front, with views extending over the Ridgeway with bedroom two boasting a wall of in-built wardrobes. Bedrooms three and four are separated by the landing and modern family shower room. There are also two lofts with separate access points providing a wealth of storage. Outside, the front garden is laid predominantly to lawn with a mature beech hedge providing privacy from the quiet street. A long drive runs to the side of the property and leads to the rear garden. This part of the garden is split up into two lovely and private designated areas of trees, shrubs, and patios - a real sun trap and an idyllic spot for al fresco dining.

The village of Bourton is picturesquely situated in the Vale of the White Horse and on the western boundary of Oxfordshire and yet within easy reach of Swindon and the M4 as well as Oxford and the A34/M40 via the A420. There is a co-educational preparatory school, Pinewood School, in the former Bourton House and a village hall in the former Baptist church. St James' parish church is part of a single Church of England benefice with six neighbouring churches.

Nearby Shrivenham is one of the larger villages within the Vale of the White Horse and is located to the north east of Swindon (circa 5 miles) and to the south west of the market town of Faringdon (circa 5 miles). The village itself has an extremely active community and a bypass built in 1984 ensures that Shrivenham's rural atmosphere is preserved. There is a lovely tree-lined high street with shops, a bank, public houses, a doctors' surgery, village primary school and impressive Church, parts dating back to the 11th Century. There is also a golf course.
