High Gables occupies a wonderfully private elevated setting on the edge of the village, approached down a no-through lane and enjoying lovely views over the surrounding countryside. The property was originally a small period cottage which has been extended and improved over recent years in the traditional Cotswold style with attractive gabled elevations. The house has well-proportioned and conveniently laid-out accommodation with first class family living space. A large reception hall immediately gives a good feeling of space. There are three main reception rooms including a goodsized drawing room. The kitchen/breakfast/ family room is very much the heart of the house. Having windows on four sides, it is flooded with light and well-equipped with a full range of units and appliances. There are five bedrooms on the first floor. The master bedroom has a high vaulted ceiling and an east facing balcony leading off. A walk-through dressing room leads to an en suite shower room. There are three further bath/ shower rooms, two of which are en suite.
Rodbourne Bottom is a charming and unspoilt hamlet set amidst rolling North Wiltshire countryside. Nearby Malmesbury is a charming town, reputed to be the oldest borough in England. The town, which is dominated by the fine 12th century Abbey, has an excellent range of shops and services including a new Waitrose supermarket. Other local towns include Tetbury, Chippenham and Cirencester. The main regional
centres include Swindon, Cheltenham, Bath and Bristol, all of which are within daily commuting distance. There is good access to Junctions 16 and 17 of the M4, the latter being about 4 miles. The main line rail service to London Paddington from Swindon (55 minutes), Kemble or Chippenham Stations (the latter two about 75 minutes). There are a choice of good private and state schools within daily driving distance.
The former include Westonbirt, Pinewood, Marlborough College, St Mary's Calne, the Cheltenham Colleges and Beaudesert Park. There are ample local sporting opportunities including a number of golf courses and many equestrian events.
Electrically operated gates open onto a sweeping driveway which leads up to the front of the house. There is plenty of gravelled parking and to the side of this planning permission was granted in 2010 (now lapsed) for a new detached double garage block with an adjoining store, with exterior steps leading up to a first floor studio. At the rear of the house is a charming south-facing courtyard. Partly gravelled and partly paved, it feels almost like another room and is ideal for barbecues and outdoor entertaining. On the far side of the courtyard is a detached stone building comprising a large studio on the ground floor with
a useful home office and W.C. on the first floor. On the west side of the house is a pretty parterre garden with clipped box hedging and lavender. To the rear of the studio is a large lawn and on the north side of the house the driveway are further lawns edged with mature trees and shrubs.
