An extremely rare opportunity to own a home on the edge of The Royal Flying Corps (RFC), Rendcomb Airfield. The airfield was opened in 1916 by the RFC, and has significant aviation and military history. Now the airfield is in private ownership as Rendcomb Aerodrome and developed as an original WW1 base. Today RFC Rendcomb is home to private flyers and AeroSuperBatics Wing Walking Team.

The Engine Shed is an original airfield building, first built to house generators to power the base. The property is now a private home having been used as an office and private flyers clubhouse. Existing planning permission enables the property to be developed further and create up to four bedrooms with en suite bathrooms. The Engine Shed is set back from the Whiteway road, a historic salt route. There is parking to the rear of the property and a fenced open garden with stone barbeque. The garden and large glazed former garage doors overlook the grass airfield, period hangers and far reaching unspoilt Cotswold views into the distance.

Access over the first part of the drive from the highway is

shared ownership with the neighbouring property.

Rendcomb is situated in the stunning and unspoilt

Cotswold Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The

property is in a hamlet close to Rendcomb village with a

village shop and good, small private school. Good pubs

and restaurants and first class schooling are all nearby.
