Full description

A wonderful detached family home with flexible accommodation providing 6 bedrooms, 3 reception rooms and 5 bath/shower rooms enjoying over 4 acres* of idyllic gardens and paddocks, in this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

The Property - Originally constructed in the middle 1970's, Fidlers Mead has been tastefully enlarged and improved providing flexible well proportioned family accommodation with the feel and character of a traditional period home. The layout of the property could easily provide a self contained annexe or indeed if all bedrooms were not needed, the rooms on the ground floor could be a family room, study or playroom. To the front of the property is a gravelled parking area and single garage, through a beautifully planted courtyard leading to the front door. Into the vaulted hall turning right up a short staircase, right again into a large drawing room with windows and doors out into the beautiful gardens, Portland stone fireplace with cast-iron wood-burning stove and fitted bookshelves. Back into the upper hall and straight over into a lovely light and airy open plan kitchen and dining room, again with doors and windows into the gardens. Bespoke old English cream painted units with solid wood work-surface over. Inset Belfast sink and forming the centre piece, a large range cooker with concealed extraction over. There are also matching larder cupboards.

A well appointed utility room is next, space for further appliances, oil fired boiler for central heating, Belfast sink and stable door into the gardens. Into the inner hall, first on the left is the study. Next along is the sixth bedroom, a double, currently used as the family room. The fifth bedroom is again a double, built in wardrobes and a lovely en-suite bathroom/wet room with walk in shower. Finally on this floor is the well appointed family bathroom. The staircase rises to a galleried landing with deep storage cupboard and airing cupboard, first left into a shower room, next is bedroom four, a double with storage cupboards and wardrobes. Along the landing up a short staircase to the upper landing, first right into the second shower room, bedroom three is next, again a double. The second bedroom is a generous double overlooking the gardens with built in wardrobes. Finally into the master bedroom with fitted wardrobes and a lovely en-suite bathroom with double ended bath and a walk in shower.

Gardens, Paddocks And Stables. - Stepping out from the property we walk into a 3/4 acre wonderfully secluded garden, facing south and west. A good sized patio/barbecue area, leading past mature trees and large lawn, central wildlife pond, containing water loving plants. Hornbeam hedges frame a long lawn leading down to the 'Ha Ha' with lovely views. Behind the hedges can be found an orchard with Apple, Plum and Pear trees and a timber shed/greenhouse. The second area is the vegetable garden. There is also a very useful working area. The garden is enclosed by mature trees and having been designed as a natural garden, it is relatively easy to maintain and is a haven for wild birds.

A path from the house leads past a tack room which has power and small heater, and garden shed, to a five bar gate which opens into the stable yard and stable paddock. This area has vehicular access with extensive hardstanding for horse boxes, tractors and trailers. The stables have water, power, CCTV. There are 5 boxes, a wash bay, tack room and substantial hay and feed store, which could be sub divided to provide further stabling if required. The lower half of the stable paddock is 0.5 acres and is part of the additional land currently rented by the owners of Fidlers Mead. Access from Smithy Lane to the stables and stable paddock is via a five bar gate and over a hard track which has full and permanent vehicular and pedestrian rights of way for the owners of Fidlers Mead.

Full planning permission was granted on the 3/10/14 to build a 50m x 30m riding arena, details of which can be found on the Wiltshire council planning website.
