Full description

Tenure: Freehold

6 St Katherines is an impressive modern family house, built to a high standard, and quietly situated in this rural community. Winterbourne Bassett is a small hamlet about 4 miles north west of the World Heritage site of Avebury, on the edge of the Marlborough Downs within the North Wessex Downs area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. This is an exceptional rural position set amidst gently rolling countryside and unspoilt downland with access to a myriad of footpaths and bridleways. The ancient sites of Avebury and Windmill Hill are close by, along with other historic sites such as Silbury Hill and the Kennet Long Barrow. Marlborough with its excellent range of shops, coffee shops and restaurants is approximately 7 miles distant, as is the well regarded Marlborough College. St Mary's in Calne is also readily accessible. The M4 junction 16 is approximately 6 miles away providing excellent road links to London and the west country. Rail links can be found in Swindon with a fast and frequent service to London Paddington.

This substantial red brick house, set in a most attractive walled garden, is approached from the private drive over a gravelled splay with a turning circle. Traditionally constructed, the house provides exceptional accommodation, with three reception rooms, including a spacious triple aspect sitting room, a dining room and a useful study. The kitchen/breakfast room has a tiled floor, and is well fitted with a range of oak units, and has ample space for a good size dining table at one end. There is a utility room to one end of the kitchen, and the downstairs accommodation is completed with a conservatory. Upstairs are five bedrooms, comprising an ensuite master and dressing room, a further guest bedroom with ensuite facilities, and three additional bedrooms, one currently in use as a state of the art cinema room. A family bathroom complements the bedrooms. The property has a particularly spacious feel, aided significantly by the impressive open hallway from which the rooms feed, and is stylishly presented in a contemporary palette of neutral colours.

The house sits comfortably in its large plot, which extends to approximately ½ of an acre. The fully enclosed garden has an expanse of well-tended lawn, whilst the garden has well-maintained flower borders, and mature shrubs and trees which enhance the rural feel. There is a double garage, currently configured as a workshop and store, and with storage above.
