Hullavington House is one of the primary residences in this active and sought-after village. As with many houses of this stature, it started life as a village farmhouse and has benefitted hugely from both its Georgian and Victorian influences which adapted and extended the house throughout these periods. It has thankfully retained much of it charm and detailing from these eras, including the substantial entertaining rooms of the Georgian period and the more family orientated rooms of the Victorian era. The current owners have undertaken a substantial and well planned renovation of the property. The emphasis
was to functional change the usage of the house, making it work for the modern family whilst also adding exceptional quality and retaining the period charm which is in abundance. One of the key enhancements they made was to incorporate the central piece of the house into a grand and open entrance hall. The addition of the front portico
has centred the house and allows flow and usability of the ground floor making it an ideal entertaining house. The kitchen has also had a great deal of attention and has been moved to the front of the house allowing full enjoyment and interaction over the landscaped gardens to the front. It is finished to superb standard with bespoke units, central island and ample space for dining room table and chairs. As with many of the rooms the drawing room is double aspect, again enjoying an open vista around the gardens. This has an open fire with Adam style fireplace with detail period wood block flooring and panelling. The former kitchen has been turned into a relaxed dining room, with discrete cupboards. The rear of the property which is the oldest section of the house, has a more intimate family feel with sitting room, boot rooms, cold store, utility and as well as workshop and various access points to the outside.
The upper two floors offer a flexible layout and could easily incorporate areas for au pairs etc. All 7 bedrooms are of generous proportions. The magnificent master suite, formally 3 rooms, incorporates a peaceful double aspect master bedroom, opulent ensuite as well as independent
dressing room. The remainder of the four further first floor bedrooms have 3 bathrooms with the 2 top floor bedrooms sharing large family bathroom. There is also a retained loft area.
Hullavington is a small but active community with life centred around the local pub, school, shop and village hall as well as church. It is ideally located for those wanting to make the most of the surrounding countryside which includes golf at Bowood and Castle Combe, eventing at Gatcombe and Badminton as well as the many shops, amenities and restaurants at the nearby village of
Chippenham and Malmesbury. It also has excellent location links with the M4 motorway being approximately 3 miles from junction 17. For the commuter Chippenham railway station offers high
speed train links to London Paddington taking about 70 minutes. Many families move to this area to utilise the excellent schooling of which a few notable include Grittleton House School, Westonbirt, Beaudesert Park and Wycliffe.
The property is approached by double opening gates onto a sweeping Cotswold chip driveway which in turn leads to the generous parking area and garaging. The majority of the garden is informally split into two areas incorporating South facing patio and large formal gardens as well as
the second area mainly laid to grass with a small orchard and a variety of mature trees offering year round foliage and interest. The current owners have gained planning permission for the creation of an outdoor swimming pool making the most of the Southerly orientation. You could utilise the adjacent garden room as a pump house and potential change in facilities. There is also a further small section of enclosed garden adjacent to the house ideal for animals etc.
