Victorian splendour at its very best. This imposing semi-detached villa occupies a prime position overlooking the river Marden in the heritage quarter of this historic old market town. Beyond lies Castlefields Canal and Riverside Park with cycle path leading to Chippenham.
The accommodation is both elegant and spacious with tall sash windows and high ceilings and is arranged over three floors. Offering tremendous versatility in its arrangement and successfully combines a harmonious blend of period charm combined with modern contemporary style.
You are received by an architecturally interesting Gothic style recessed entrance porch with a video Entryphone and reception hall which has a cloakroom, an elegant bay fronted sitting room which has a fine period style fireplace which opens through into an attractive dining room, which also has an ornate fireplace.
There is a stunning contemporary kitchen/breakfast room with an impressive Poggenpohl island with corian worktop and built-in premium brand Gaggenau appliances. Leading off the kitchen is the fifth bedroom with an en-suite bathroom (the owner currently uses this room as a treatment room, and it would equally be ideal for a dependant relative)
On the first floor is the double aspect principal bedroom with en-suite, and three further good size bedrooms, and on the second floor is the light and spacious 24ft family room, with expansive views across Calne's Heritage Quarter. The adaptable space could be used as additional bedroom/s or large peaceful home office space. There is also a shower room and further study/dressing room.
The house has a fully tanked dry cellar with natural light.
There is a fully enclosed private rear garden, which is ideal for alfresco dining, or just relaxing at the end of the day with a cool glass of wine. As the garden is easy to maintain, you will have more time to explore the nearby open countryside and Castlefields Canal and River Park.
Although there is no off-road parking with the house, various parking options are available outside and within easy walking distance. These include a public car park and unrestricted on road parking. There is also the potential to create off -road parking at the front, subject to the usual consents.
This spectacular period home is warmed gas central heating and the more traditional feature of a large open fire in the dining room.
A truly special home in a most convenient location within literally a stone's throw from the town centre and close to open countryside on the Bowood estate.
A very rare opportunity, as houses of this caliber rarely come to the market. Viewing will be a delight. Offered with no onward chain
