Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Tucked away down a quiet lane is this beautiful period home, set within grounds of approximately 0.8 acre- surrounded by stunning countryside and far reaching views, and within the Gastard conservation area. Having been in the same family for some 60 years, Timberleaze is a unique home and in a very special location. The original house dates back to the late 17 Century with further extensions added at various different periods all boasting an abundance of period features, including inglenook fireplace, exposed timber beams and stone mullion windows. Upon entering via the porch, you come into the entrance hall which has a WC and shower room leading off. A door takes you though to the sitting room, which has a beautiful inglenook fireplace, exposed timbers and two south aspect windows; making this a very light room. A further second reception room/study leads off, which has a door leading out onto the south facing patio. The kitchen/breakfast room has a lovely cottage feel, with a range of shaker style units and a 'Rangemaster' range cooker, with the added benefit of pantry. The dining room/conservatory is a great room to enjoy views over the gardens, and is the perfect place for entertaining and enjoying family Christmas'. On the first floor is a large landing area with loft access and airing cupboard, along with access to the three double bedrooms, family bathroom and the study/bedroom four, which is a walk through room. The property is not listed, so has scope for further extensions.

There is a certain amount of magic approaching Timberleaze Cottage, as the drive along Gastard Lane takes you past some beautiful period houses with great views unfolding as you round the corner and approach the turning onto the single track lane. The beautifully tended gardens sit either side of the gravelled drive, and make for an impressive entrance with a parking area in front of the detached double garage. The gardens have been beautifully tended over the years and with the knowledge of time, the owners have created a garden that provides colour and texture throughout the year. To the front of the property is a large border, which blooms with colour throughout late spring and summer, and has a pink flowering Magnolia and shaped yew tree. The north lawn has a well stocked range of shrubs, trees, formal box hedging, and at the bottom end of the garden is a very productive vegetable and fruit garden along with a greenhouse. There is also a cedar wood work from home office with power and lighting. The south lawn has a wide variety of mature shrubs and trees, including yellow maple, bay, and Judas trees, which again provide bursts of colour from spring through to late autumn. With the eucalyptus and evergreen oak, there is beauty in the garden year-round. To the rear of the house is a patio area which gets an abundance of sunshine and provides excellent privacy- perfect for al fresco dining.

The village of Gastard has a recreation ground, village hall and pub, and unspoiled country walks literally on the door step. The historic old county town of Corsham and the Georgian heritage city of Bath are both a short drive away. Nearby Chippenham has a mainline railway station and junction 17 of the m4 motorway.
