Dating back to 1738 this grade II listed property has over the years been sympathetically extended into a spacious family home, whilst retaining a wealth of period features.
Situated on the pretty High Street of Colerne, an attractive and popular south Cotswolds village, which is just c.8 miles from the historic Georgian city of Bath. A thriving village surrounded by stunning countryside with far reaching views to the south over the delightful Box valley. The village offers excellent amenities including a store, newsagent, two doctors’ surgeries, florist, two public houses, Primary School and Early Years Playgroup. There is also a bus service into both Bath and Chippenham. For commuters there is easy access to Junctions 17 and 18 of the M4 and to London Paddington from Bath Spa or Chippenham train stations. Michelin star dining or a wonderful spa experience is available a mile and a half away at Lucknam Park country house hotel.
The property showcases characterful windows, original wooden doors and exposed beams throughout. Offering four generous bedrooms, three reception rooms, a beautiful garden with a large garage and off-street parking for three cars.
Entered through arched double doors, the impressive reception hall provides a spacious area to welcome guests and offers access to the rest of the house. The front sitting room boasts two fireplaces, one a fully functioning open fire, the other a listed decorative feature and built in window seats on both front windows. The dining room and family room flow seamlessly between each other, both have generous picture windows and overlook the mature rear garden. Windows to three sides of the kitchen flood the room with natural light and lead into the dining room giving the main living space an open plan feel, perfect for modern family living. The cottage style kitchen has fully fitted wall and base units, a built-in dishwasher, two fridges and space for a range. There is a useful utility room just off the kitchen and the ground floor is completed by a downstairs W.C.
The property has four bedrooms; the master bedroom is on the first floor along with the first family bathroom whilst on the second floor are two further bedrooms and another bathroom. The fourth bedroom is accessed via a spiral staircase in the entrance hall and has made a great space to work from for the current owner.
Outside there is an attractive patio area ideal for alfresco dining. This continues into the beautifully landscaped and well-maintained rear gardens. The lawns are surrounded by colourful mature shrubs and flowers. At the end of the garden is a 19th century pig sty for storage and a sheltered space to enjoy the setting sun with a glass of wine.
