3 bedroom detached house for sale

Millstream, Mill Lane, Bishopstrow, Warminster, Wiltshire


Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Situated in a secluded enclave next to the River Wylye, this three-bedroom detached house is surrounded by landscaped gardens and mature trees. The single-storey, steel-frame structure is full of natural light and feels immediately at home in its environment, testament to the skill of its architect Michael Newberry.

The entrance to the house is from a gravel drive with white-rendered walls. The front door opens onto the main living space, a large area which is open and light with travertine floor throughout. There are three bedrooms, including a master bedroom with en-suite bathroom and walk-in wardrobe that leads out to the poolside, and two further bedrooms both with access to the garden. A door from the kitchen/dining room leads onto a wooden deck that wraps around the house to an eight-metre swimming pool.

The main structure of the house is a steel frame, which is grit-blasted, zinc-sprayed and industrially painted. The glass walls reveal a panoramic view of the multiple terraces and gardens designed by the acclaimed landscape designer, John Brookes. In essence the house is one space, divided by rendered partition walls that separate the living areas.

The orientation of the house captures all available sunlight with roof hangings and louvres designed to maximise solar energy in winter and shade the glass from full sun in the summer. The entire structure is insulated to a very high standard, the result being a temperate and very economical house.

Subject to the usual permissions, plans have been drawn-up by Newberry to develop a fourth bedroom and there is potential to convert the double garage into a studio/annex with all services installed for alternative use.

Bishopstrow is a small village on the River Wylye in Wiltshire, approximately two miles south-east of Warminster, which lies on the edge of the Cranborne Chase and West Wiltshire Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Warminster boasts many historic attractions as well as nature trails, meadows and grassy marshlands. It is also the nearest town to Longleat, the stately home and seat of the Marquess of Bath and Longleat Safari Park. The Bishopstrow Hotel and Spa is a short drive up the road.

Trains from Warminster to London Waterloo take just over 2 hours, whilst Bath Spa is 30-40 minutes and Bristol is approximately 45 minutes. The A303 is just over 8 miles away for access to London or the West Country.
