This handsome Listed farmhouse is believed to date from the early 17th Century and is located on a generous plot measuring approx. 0.63 of an acre, in the heart of this thriving Wiltshire village.
The Farmhouse sits within attractive stone walled gardens which provide an unexpected degree of seclusion and privacy for a house which resides in the village.
The property has undergone a significant level of updating by the current owners and is now a substantial, extremely well appointed home. The improvements have been sympathetic, restoring many of the period features, such as the Newel staircase, original elm floorboards and working shutters in many rooms, all very much complemented by the modern fixtures and fittings.
Within the main part of the house the ground floor accommodation currently comprises two large formal reception rooms and a garden room along with a bespoke fitted kitchen, by de VOL, with an Aga and a central island unit providing the perfect space we seek for meeting, entertaining and relaxing and a good size boot room and boiler room.
A beautiful curved Newel staircase connects the floors. The first floor provides three well-proportioned bedrooms, the second a further two. All bedrooms have ensuite facilities.
Complementing the main house the adjoining wing of outbuildings has been converted to further living accommodation and now provides a further sitting room which is an extremely comfortable room, with vaulted ceiling and is warmed by the Clearview Wood Burning Stove.
A second staircase leads to a fabulous master bedroom with a freestanding bath in one corner, 'his & hers' walk in wardrobes and a superbly appointed shower room.
Grounds & Gardens
Outside there are further outbuildings. Two of which have been converted to be a home office / study and a recreational room. There is a range of piggeries that offer potential for further development (subject to planning).
The gardens are private, mature and relatively easy to manage. The rear garden is walled beyond which is farmland. It is principally laid to lawn interspersed by a number of flower beds and fruit trees. There is a kitchen garden, growing tunnel and summer house. With a further lawned area to the front of the house, bounded by a low stone wall, mature hedging and trees.
The property is located in the heart of the popular village of Hullavington which is located between the historic market towns of Chippenham and Malmesbury and conveniently situated for the M4 motorway (J17 approx 3 miles) giving easy access to London and to both Heathrow and Bristol airports.
Hullavington has a lively community with good local amenities such a school, pub, shop, village hall and church. The nearby
towns of both Chippenham and Malmesbury provide more extensive recreational and shopping facilities. There are excellent rail connections from Chippenham and Swindon with services to London Paddington taking approximately 70 minutes and 55 minutes respectively.
Education in the area is excellent with many private schools including Grittleton House School, St Margaret's and St Mary's at Calne, Westonbirt near Tetbury and Marlborough College. Both Hardenhuish and Sheldon schools in Chippenham have excellent Ofsted ratings, as does Malmesbury School.
There are many excellent recreational facilities in the area including The Westonbirt Arboretum, walking on the Macmillan and Cotswold Ways, cycling on many quiet lanes and golfing at Castle Combe, Bowood, Minchinhampton and Westonbirt. There is polo at Westonbirt and Cirencester Park, racing at Cheltenham and Bath, eventing at Badminton and Gatcombe and hunting with the Duke of Beaufort's Hunt.
