The Old Tannery is a deceptively spacious period property, located in a central, yet peaceful part of Fairford, just behind the historic Market Place. It offers bright and versatile accommodation, garaging, potential to create off street parking and a southerly facing and enclosed rear garden.

The oldest part of the property was formerly a terrace of three cottages, which has been extended to incorporate a former stable. The property has been in the ownership of one family for over 50 years. Over this time the building has revealed itself to be extremely flexible and there are few rooms which have not had more than one function over the years and you may well find that the services you need are already in place for any alterations you might want to make.

The accommodation is currently arranged over two floors, with the ground floor comprising entrance hall with stairs off to the first floor, utility/shower room, larder, kitchen dining room with Bulthaup units, two reception rooms one with a bathroom off and a secondary staircase off to the first floor. The ground floor flooring is either laid with limestone tiles with underfloor heating or engineered oak. The divided first floor offers two double bedrooms and bathrooms to either side.

Outside, to the front two garages provide essential parking spaces. Further off street parking could potentially be created by the removal of the store and part of the curved boundary wall by the entrance of neighbouring Tan House, with consultation with them. While to the rear is a generous and enclosed southerly facing garden with lawned and patio areas and mature standard wisteria and apple tree.

All benefitting from being sold with no onward chain.

Fairford is an attractive market town situated on the edge of the Cotswolds in the beautiful Coln Valley. It is located within the Cotswold Water Park, offering a wide range of water and land-based activities and nationally recognised as an important conservation and wildlife study area.

Another feature of Fairford is the range and extent of a web of Public Rights of Way both within the town and beyond with footpaths to Quenington and Lechlade. The Old Tannery provides quick and easy access to these paths and the river.

The town has an active local community and benefits from a range of shops in the centre of the town where there is ample free parking. There is also a regular market every Wednesday. St Mary's Church is beautiful dating back to 1497 and boasts that its stained-glass windows are 'the only complete set of late medieval glass in a parish church in the country'.

There is good state schooling available for children of all ages, from reception to completing A levels. There are also independent schools in surrounding areas and with Fairford Church of England School recently being awarded 'outstanding' by Ofsted.
