Situation
Bushton Lodge is a substantial country house, set in mature landscaped gardens with rural southerly views across open farmland. The property is situated in the hamlet of Bushton, surrounded by rolling countryside and set within an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Bushton Lodge itself is believed to date from the C14th, in 1086 the Domesday Book records an estate at Bushton, and by the 17th century the manor of Bushton had become a tithing of Clyffe Pypard parish. The hamlet has a public house, and is well placed strategically for the regional centres of Marlborough, Newbury and Swindon. Marlborough is a hugely popular market town with diverse amenities whilst Swindon has a rail link for Paddington, about 55 minutes. M4 junctions 15 and 16 are readily accessible. The village is situated about 4 miles north of the World Heritage Site of Avebury within the North Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The surrounding countryside is ideal for riding, cycling and walking.

DESCRIPTION
This most impressive and attractive period house has been the subject of a significant and sympathetic programme of improvement and updating. Traditionally constructed with rendered and colour-washed brick elevations, the main house has a thatched roof, whilst the weather boarded barn style kitchen has a tiled roof, linked by a glazed garden room. The house now has exceptional accommodation of ample proportions, comprising superb gracious reception rooms, with both a sitting and drawing room and beautifully appointed bedrooms and bathrooms. Of particular note is the vast vaulted kitchen/breakfast room, with bespoke cream units and granite worktops, a 4 oven Aga, timber flooring and doors to the terrace, with a sunny garden room adjoining. The bedrooms are primarily ensuite, with the master enjoying a dressing room in addition to the bathroom. A most useful outbuilding to the rear is currently a games room, but could be utilized for a range of activities.

OUTSIDE
Bushton Lodge is approached via a tree lined gravel driveway with electronic gates leading to the front of the house. The drive continues to the rear of the house, giving access to the double garage and ample parking. The gardens are extensive, with lawns, mature borders, shrubs and trees, with outstanding views from the paved terrace. There is a productive kitchen garden, some fruit cages, an orchard and a small paddock, in all circa 2.25 acres. In addition the house has a number of useful storage buildings, perfect for garden machinery.
