A rare opportunity to purchase one of Malmesbury's finest houses. Kings House is a visually striking Grade II* house that offers over 3300 square feet of accommodation, parking, and mature gardens, and situated on a generous plot extending to 0.40 of an acre just off the High Street. As with many town centre houses the accommodation is arranged over four/five floors comprising on the lower ground floor a timber framed orangery with two set of double doors opening out to the garden, and the kitchen breakfast room which features a range of hand made units, solid wood worktops and gas AGA. In addition to this is a scullery / utility, a pantry and boiler room. The ground floor living space provides an entrance hall with cloakroom off, a study, and a delightful drawing room with part wood panelling, impressive inglenook fireplace and secret door leading to first floor bedroom/office. The first floor arrangement offers a superb master bedroom with two window seats and an ensuite bathroom, and a bedroom/office which is accessed from the secondary staircase off the drawing room. The 2nd floor provides two well proportioned bedrooms, a dressing room and a shower room. The third floor comprises a lovely attic bedroom with exposed beams, and a walk in loft/storage room. A beautiful feature of this house is the 5 sash windowed front façade which not only looks stunning from the outside but also offers rooms with a delightful view and a light and warm environment to live in.
The market town of Malmesbury is reputed to be England's oldest borough, dating from around 880 AD, it has a good selection of shops and a regular farmers' market, a library, museum, leisure centre with pool, two primary schools and a "High Performing Academy" secondary school. The 12th century Abbey and Abbey House Gardens together with the nearby Westonbirt Arboretum are significant tourist attractions. The Royal Estates of Highgrove and Gatcombe Park are close by and the area is known for its many sporting activities with the city of Bath 23 miles to the south-west. J17 of the M4 provides access to the area's major employment centres and there are trains to Paddington in just over an hour from Chippenham, Kemble and Swindon.
To the front is a shared driveway which allows parking for both Kings Wall and the neighbouring house. The gardens mainly lie to the front of the property and offer high levels of privacy. The garden hosts an array of pretty wild flowers to include crocus, wild strawberries, and primrose. Well established hedgerow and an assortment of fruit trees create a feeling of enchantment and back on to a stream. There is a stone paved seating area with water feature and a lovely old path with steps lead up to the front door.
