An outstanding ‘L’ shaped five-bedroom bungalow sitting in grounds of just over half an acre. This is a real hidden gem tucked away down a no through lane and enjoying beautiful views across the surrounding countryside. Offered to the market with no onward chain.
Orchard Gate has been owned by the current vendor for 14 years, and whilst in their ownership numerous improvements have been made to create a contemporary, low maintenance home. Due to the layout and space, the house could very easily be used with an additional independent space for a dependant relative or as an annexe.
The front door leads into the open plan kitchen/family room with engineered oak floorboards and an excellent range of base and wall cabinets with a central island unit. Integrated appliances comprise a fridge/freezer, dishwasher and electric Rangemaster range cooker. This well- proportioned room has plenty of space for a dining table and sofas making it a fantastic sociable room with French doors leading out to a patio area with a pergola in the rear garden. Off the kitchen is a utility room with space and plumbing for a washing machine and tumble dryer, plus a door leading out to the rear garden. Adjacent to the kitchen is the formal sitting room which is filled with natural light thanks to its triple aspect, which include further French doors. The focal point of the room is the contemporary wood burning stove with a slate hearth.
The bedrooms are all accessed off a corridor from an inner hallway. The master bedroom is situated at the far end of the corridor and was converted from the former double garage into a really spacious room with a luxurious en-suite shower room, which is tiled throughout with a large double walk-in shower, low level WC, freestanding vanity unit and heated towel radiator. There is a reception room adjacent to the master bedroom currently used as a snug, but if required this side of the house could easily be separated to create an annexe to be used for guests, dependant relatives or to create further income as Airbnb accommodation. There are four further double bedrooms all with built in wardrobes and a reception room used as a study. The family bathroom has tongue and groove panelling and a white suite comprising a bath, corner shower cubicle, wash hand basin, heated towel radiator and built-in cupboard. There is also a separate shower room.
Externally, the property is approached though a five-bar gate onto a block paved driveway with plenty of parking for numerous vehicles. Adjoining the house is a car port and to the other side of the driveway there is a detached double garage with two up and over doors, power and light. An oak framed studio with power and light sits in one corner of the gardens and has been used as a home office, and there is a summer house also with power and light. The front and rear garden are divided by a mature beech hedge. The whole plot enjoys a southerly aspect and the rear garden sweeps around the house and is bordered by a mature mixed hedgerow. There is a patio off the formal sitting room with a pergola making the perfect spot to admire views across the garden. The rest of the garden is predominantly laid to lawn with specimen trees. A further timber built summer house sits in the far corner of the garden.
We understand the property is connect to mains water, electricity and drainage. Oil fired central heating. Council Tax Band G (Wiltshire Council).
