A characterful Grade II listed detached house dating back to the 17th Century, occupying a superb elevated position overlooking beautiful rolling countryside. Benefitting from plenty of private parking, this home offers three bedrooms, several reception rooms, and a stunning large garden.
Situated within the popular hamlet of Reybridge, Hill Cottage is a delightful period home that offers an abundance of charm throughout. Occupying a commanding position that benefits from beautiful panoramic countryside views at the front, this notably well-proportioned detached property is believed to date back originally to the 17th Century, with a tasteful extension having been added to the property in the 18th Century. The notably spacious entrance hallway is currently dressed as a functional living room / reading room, and immediately gives the feeling of space and character that continues throughout the property, boasting a working wood burning stove and flagstone flooring. This leads into a large and well presented bathroom that comprises of a matching suite and a large walk-in shower cubicle. The dining room forms the central social hub in the middle of this property, and benefits from a light and airy dual-aspect ratio as well as providing a pleasant flow into the sitting room and the kitchen. This sitting room also enjoys the same bright dual-aspect ratio (from front to back), and boasts an impressive open fireplace to enjoy when the colder weather creeps in. The rustic made-to-measure kitchen situated at the rear of the property, leads directly out onto the rear garden and is currently fitted with an electric oven and plumbing for all of the essentials. The first floor supports a main double bedroom that soaks up the glorious view at the front (as well as having a second window to allow plenty of light in from the side). Furthermore, there are two additional double bedrooms on the other side of the staircase that are sensibly proportioned to provide an excellent amount of space for freestanding furniture if the expansive in-built cupboards aren't enough! Please note that bedroom two provides access into bedroom three and a stud wall corridor would need to be erected to provide extra privacy and to satisfy modern day building regulations.
Externally at the front, a large private and gated driveway provides plenty of parking away from the peaceful lane on which the house resides. Walk around the house at either side and you will be met by a beautiful and fairly level rear garden that comprises of several different areas that offer a range of different uses for the whole family to enjoy. This wonderful and highly private space can often be found basking in excellent amounts of natural sunlight from the Southerly and Westerly boundaries, with intelligently placed patios and seating areas that take full advantage of the size and orientation of the garden. There is a fair ratio of lawn for children to enjoy, which is accented by small trees and bordered with bushes and hedge rows that help to create a feeling of security and enclosure. This wildlife-friendly garden encapsulates a wide variety of thriving plants and pretty flowers in the various planting beds that can be found in situ, and for those who enjoy al fresco dining, a covered wooden-built structure provides just the space in which to unwind and host.
The leafy hamlet of Reybridge is ideal for those who wish to escape to the country, whilst remaining well connected to key transport links and the civilisation of the bustling towns and villages nearby. Lacock is a historic, quintessential English village surrounded by glorious Wiltshire countryside. The village is a firm favourite for film and TV sets wishing to make the most of the unspoiled nature of its streets and cottages. As well as the 13th century Abbey, Lacock offers a superb range of local amenities such as a children’s playground and playing fields, the National Trust shop and tearooms, fabulous country pubs, a well-stocked village shop & post office. Independent and State schools in the local area at primary and senior level are well regarded and also placed within easy reach of Lacock. There are also good transport links from here as it is only a short drive to Chippenham, which has a mainline rail link to London Paddington and the M4 motorway is accessed via J17 just a few miles north of the town. The City of Bath can also be found approximately 15 miles away, with Bradford on Avon residing approximately 9 miles distant.

*AGENTS NOTE* The "Second Bedroom" provides access into the third bedroom, which presently would not satisfy modern day building regulations. However, when the property was built with this design this would have been an acceptable layout to satisfy the necessary regulations at the time. Should one desire more privacy and to comply more with modern day building regulations, a stud wall would need to be erected to create a corridor to provide access between the landing and bedroom three directly.
