Set behind a high fence and large entrance gates is this very charming and extensive Grade ll Listed period property constructed of mellow Cotswold stone elevations with mullion windows, under a Cotswold stone tile pitched roof. There are three parts to the property; a main family house, an old coach house which now forms an annexe, and a one bedroom adjoining summer house. This allows for a variety of uses with potential investment income, staff accommodation, or for large families with dependent relatives. The property is presented in very good order throughout, the main house boasting spacious rooms with a country house feel. The accommodation is on three floors and because of its age, the rooms are filled with period features to include large open inglenook fireplaces, exposed oak floorboards and beams, window seats, exposed ashlar stone walls as well as some gothic style arched door cases. Mixed with this are the modern bathroom fittings and the lovely shaker style wooden kitchen units with fitted cooker range and granite work surfaces. The pretty coach house, now an annexe currently has a mixed use as further bedrooms, storage, workshops and studio space as well as having a shower room, wc and utility/ laundry room. The summer house is very appealing with a large room forming living/bedroom space with a fireplace and opening onto a veranda via French double doors. There is also a kitchen and a shower room.
The gardens are a delight, forming several areas with a lovely gravel terrace area for al fresco entertaining. There is a front lawn and herbaceous beds, surrounded by a mature selection of trees, creating a wonderful feeling of privacy.
The Bristol Road is a very popular and much sought after road of residential properties, a short walk from Chippenham Sports Club, (which boasts six hard surface floodlit tennis courts, cricket square and field, plus a recently built bowls pavilion which accompanies the best bowling green in the county) and the town centre which provides a good range of local amenities including excellent shopping facilities, sports centre, mainline station (Paddington about 75 minutes) and schooling for all ages. The M4 motorway J17 provides fast road access to the major employment centres of Swindon and Bristol together with London and the West Country. There is a good choice of both state and private schooling in the area and those with an interest in country and leisure pursuits are well catered for in the region.
