6 bedroom detached house for sale
Rood Ashton Park, West Ashton, Trowbridge, Wiltshire, BA14
Tenure: FreeholdA Grade II listed, late gothic style manor house built of limestone ashlar elevations. Originally a much larger property that was mostly demolished, the north wing remains with a west facing corner tower with a south facing truncated buttress entrance. Solid in appearance and structure, with a pleasing fortified appearance it offers extensive and well presented accommodation after an extensive programme of works by the present owners. As one would expect there is a grand
galleried drawing room with oak panelled walls and a large open fireplace. The large mullioned and leaded windows overlook the landscaped parkland setting. The equally appealing dining room is accessed off the kitchen and has another grand fireplace and enjoys the same countryside views. To the rear of the property are three
large connecting rooms, currently offering a cinema room, billiard room and the indoor swimming pool. Of particular note is the central
spacious kitchen with fitted cabinets, granite work surfaces and tiled floor that opens into the garden room, creating a wonderfully light space from which to enjoy the views across the immaculate gardens in a south westerly direction. Off the inner hall are a study, office and access to the extensive cellars, currently used as a temperature
controlled wine cellar of the highest standards.
Again, to the rear of the house is a further inner hall, used as a boot hall and providing access to the large wood/garden store room. A separate door leads to the annexe that has its own private entrance and can provide staff accommodation or offer a private apartment for a dependent relative.
A grand carved oak staircase leads to the first floor, the galleried landing over looking the drawing room. The master bedroom boasts two dressing rooms and an en suite bathroom. A flat roof could allow for a roof terrace to be created should one wish, of course needing the necessary consents which would boast the most fantastic views
as currently seen from the bedroom windows. There are two further bedrooms with en suite bathrooms and then a further three bedrooms
sharing a family bathroom. A staircase leads from bedroom 6, on the second floor of the corner tower, to the open parapet from which to
enjoy far reaching views.
Accessed by a long drive and then through electric pillared gates, you are immediately made aware of the gardens that surround the house.
A beautiful level lawn is surrounded my mature trees and shrubs and a long stone pathway leads to the southern edge of the grounds.
Views across neighbouring farmland, landscaped park and beyond are enjoyed from the gardens. To the rear of the property is a more formal
manicured garden area that leads through to an enclosed paved terrace that is great for entertaining with doors leading from the indoor
swimming pool, creating a great space on summer days. Beyond this are a walled kitchen garden and a chicken run with coup.
At the front of the house a tarmac drive allows for ample parking leading through to a rear gateway and also up to the large garaging space.
