Full description

An elegant Georgian Rectory standing in c.15 acres of grounds in this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty on the edge of the Marlborough Downs. Coach House with Self Contained Flat and Stables.

The Property - The property has been maintained to a high standard by the present owners, providing well-proportioned and flexible accommodation. There is also a separate self-contained coach house, stableyard and the former village hall with potential for conversion (subject to usual permissions).
The accommodation comprises a classically proportioned drawing room and dining room, both of which enjoy views over the garden and paddocks; Bespoke kitchen with granite work surfaces with handmade contemporary-style units, integrated appliances and large range cooker; Family room with an open fire. And also a part-panelled study. Also on the ground floor can be found a cloakroom, boot room, laundry and a room previously used to hang game. A door from the rear hall leads down to the wine cellar and billiard room.
From the main hall the staircase ascends to the first-floor landing with doors to the master bedroom with en-suite bathroom and principal guest bedroom with adjoining bathroom. A door opens onto the rear landing with three further double bedrooms, shower room, bathroom, a staircase down to the rear hall and a further staircase which rises to a large loft/play room.

Stamp Duty - Please be aware the vendor has been advised that due to the addition of agricultural land in the sale the property qualifies for a mixed use classification and therefore means that a considerably reduced amount of stamp duty is payable.

The rear hall leads out via the boot room into the flagged stableyard with double gates out onto the driveway. In the stableyard are four stables, garden store and two sets of double doors opening into the original coach house, which would have housed the two carriages for the Rector, with flagstone floor and original fireplace.
A gate from the stableyard leads into the parking area for the former village hall and converted coach house. Access to the coach house is via a door on the left, opening into a small hall with staircase rising to the first floor. From the landing a door opens into the fitted kitchen. Next is the bathroom with separate walk-in shower. The lovely light sitting/dining room has a vaulted ceiling and a wood-burning stove. Finally a door opens to the large bedroom with full-length built-in wardrobes.
On the other side of the driveway is the former village hall with large double doors and windows and doors to both sides. This is currently used as a motor house accommodating up to four cars. A kitchen garden area surrounds the hall with mature and prolific fig trees.

Outside - The gardens and paddock are arranged to the south and east of the property. The drawing room opens on to a large raised terrace overlooking the formal garden. To the left is a second flagged terrace which then leads back to the courtyard. The original ha-ha overlooks the paddock surrounded by mature trees and an all-weather tennis court. A five-bar gate opens across a public footpath into the woodland and second paddock area, with walks and rides leading up to the crest of the hill which enjoys panoramic views of the surrounding countryside.

Take the first slip road signposted for Swindon and the Great Western Hospital and at the bottom of the slope at the roundabout take the fourth exit onto the B4192 towards Liddington and Aldbourne.
