Built in the 1800's by the Chafyn-Grove family of Zeals House, Swiss Cottage is a beautiful example of Arts and Crafts. This Grade II, four bedroom detached house boasts period features at every twist and turn. Set in the popular Wiltshire village of Zeals this delightful home comes to market with no onward chain.
Swiss Cottage is an impressive home, set in an elevated location just a short walk from local amenities. The rooms are spacious, all with period features, some boasting stained glassed windows, flagstone floors, fireplaces, bay windows and 19th century diamond cast iron windows.
This house has seen many transformations over the years and I'm sure holds many secrets. It is said that it was once two cottages that were joined in the 1900's to create what is now Swiss Cottage. The ground floor accommodation comprises entrance porch, three spacious reception rooms, a large kitchen/breakfast room, utility room/pantry, downstairs WC, and workshop. The kitchen is most definitely the heart of the home with its range cooker, impressive feature fireplace, oak base units with quarts worktops, and movable kitchen island. There is ample space for a freestanding American style fridge/freezer and dishwasher, still leaving ample room for a dining table. From the kitchen you can access the utility room, pantry, and workshop with vaulted ceilings. There are two reception rooms which also lead off the kitchen, one a large front facing room with bay window which is currently used as a games room. However, it would also make a wonderful formal dining or sitting room. The second reception room is currently used as a dining room from here you can access the cosy sitting room which features bay windows and multi burning stove.
The four bedrooms and two bathrooms are situated on the first floor. The main bedroom is bright and spacious room at the end of the landing, benefitting from dual aspect bay windows, built in wardrobes and en-suite bathroom. The en-suite comprises a bath, low level WC, wash handbasin and Velux window. Three further double bedrooms can be found, the first of which is a generous double situated at the front of the property with bay window. The second double bedroom is again of generous proportions and overlooks the back of the house with garden views. Last but not least is a good-sized double bedroom with bay window overlooking the side of the house. It has a fixed single bed and useful wash hand basin. The family bathroom is rear facing and comprises a slipper bath, low level WC, wash handbasin and separate walk-in shower.
To the front of the property is a double garage with parking for several cars, there is an area laid to lawn with mature trees and shrubs boarding. The spacious rear garden is tiered, mainly laid to lawn with a generous garden sunroom/potting shed, workshop, and greenhouse.
The property also benefits from a separate parking space situated at the bottom of the lane. There is a dilapidated single garage which has the potential for a single garage/carport subject to planning permission.
