Woodhayes is a magnificent village residence located in a tranquil and idyllic semi rural setting amid established grounds extending to an acre with stunning uninterrupted views from the rear and side over open countryside. With original parts dating back to the 17th Century the property has been extended over recent years to create a versatile and comfortable family home. The tastefully presented interior is most generously proportioned comprising four principal reception rooms, an impressive kitchen/breakfast room with Alpha range, a spacious utility room and cloakroom. There are four generous double bedrooms and two bathrooms on the first floor. Externally the property is approached over a long, tree lined driveway which leads to a detached open garage and workshop. The large, established gardens are a particular feature, being laid to lawn and interspersed by a number of specimen trees and evergreens which provide seclusion.
Little Somerford is located approximately 2½ miles southeast of Malmesbury.
