Full description

Tenure: Freehold

High Bank is a beautiful thatched house occupying an elevated position facing in a southerly direction with an outlook to open countryside. It is situated at the heart of the desirable village of Woodborough within a conservation area and in the midst of the Pewsey Vale, an area designated as being of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The Village comprises predominately period houses and is one of 3 closely linked hamlets which between them benefit from a church, a garden centre, public house/restaurant and popular primary school. The larger village of Pewsey is about 3 miles away and provides more extensive local facilities including a main line rail service to London (approximately 1 hour) and the south west. The market town of Marlborough and Devizes are approximately 8 miles distant and Cathedral City of Salisbury is about 22 miles to the South. The village is surrounded by rolling open countryside and the Kennet and Avon canal runs close to the edge of the village.

High Bank is an individual Grade II listed period house, dating from the 17th Century with sympathetic later Victorian and contemporary additions. Constructed of both red brick and half-timbered rendered elevations, with some sarsen walling, the house has been recently rethatched. There is a tiled roof to the later extension, and to the garage. The property has deceptively spacious accommodation with much inherent charm, with a beautifully crafted oak framed dining area and superb garden room leading off the fitted kitchen. The kitchen benefits from an electric Aga (with AIMS), granite work surfaces, fitted larder cupboards and stone flooring. Across the stone floored hallway is an elegant triple aspect sitting room with views across the garden, featuring a multi fuel stove. There is an additional studio/5th bedroom through a doorway, next to a limestone floored shower room. A cloakroom and well fitted utility room complete the downstairs accommodation. Accessed by the main staircase are 4 good bedrooms served by a large, marble-floored bathroom, with roll top bath and separate shower. There are many period touches throughout the house, including timbered ceilings, stripped doors and pretty fireplaces. A secondary staircase leads down to the hallway. High Bank is cabled for sound, video and WiFi. The system is controlled via iPads and/or small control panels on the wall.

The fully enclosed gardens are mainly to the rear of the house, and have been carefully landscaped and thoughtfully planted around a central lawned area to provide year round interest. A shed with seating sits to the rear of the plot. The house is approached from the lane via a gravelled driveway to the double garage, whilst the driveway has parking for several vehicles.
