The Oaks is a beautifully presented detached family home, built in 1929 with later extensions set within the highly prized Wiltshire Village of Lacock.

The property offers flexible accommodation to cater for a variety of needs and includes a stunning kitchen/dining room opening through to a modern Conservatory with wood burning stove. There is a dual aspect sitting room of generous proportions as well as a family room (with en-suite shower room), study and hobby room all of which could be utilised as additional bedrooms.
