Rudloe Cottage is a Grade II listed detached house with
the most wonderful and far reaching views across the
Bybrook Valley towards Bath. Constructed of golden
Bath stone with a stone tiled roof, the house retains a host
of period features and charm including parquet and stone
flooring, arched doors and leaded light windows. The
current owners have extended and updated the property
and it now benefits from an excellent kitchen, fitted by
Smallbone of Devizes, and 3 reception rooms providing
an exceptional amount of living space for a 3 bedroom
house. The annexe is situated a little way from the house
and is currently used as a home office. It is sympathetically constructed to blend in with the surroundings and has an office, wc and kitchenette on the ground floor with 2 rooms upstairs. It is suitable for use as a granny annexe or similar subject to the necessary consents. The single garage is incorporated into the annexe. The entire property is extremely private and the house is well located, tucked away towards the rear of its plot.
GARDENS AND GROUNDS
The gardens are a particular feature of Rudloe Cottage
and provide a wonderful vantage point for the superb
views. The house is approached through metal gates onto
a driveway with parking area adjacent to the annexe. The
sweeping lawns have a variety of trees and hedging and
herbaceous borders which are well planted with a range
of shrubs, roses and hydrangeas amongst others. The
orchard includes apple, plum, greengage and cherries.
There is a fruit cage, green house and a timber
constructed workshop. French windows lead from the
dining room on to a raised stone terrace.
Rudloe is a small hamlet situated just outside the town
of Corsham within easy access of Bath and Chippenham.
