Full description

Tenure: Freehold

This delightful former barn has been converted to create a well proportioned home with a flexible layout arranged over two floors. The side entrance hall gives access to all ground floor rooms and a flight of stairs to the upper floor. The rear reception room includes a double aspect dining area over looking the canal with a pair of glazed doors leading out to the waterside garden. To the front of the cottage is a double aspect kitchen breakfast with an attractive feature of the original stable door opening now being a full height arched window. With a tiled floor and pine fronted cabinets there are a range of integrated appliances to include a gas hob, hood, electric oven, washing machine and dishwasher. There is also plenty of space for a table. On the ground floor one of the bedrooms has a "borrowed light" window from the dining area and is alongside the tiled bathroom. Fitted with a corner bath and shower screen, there is wash basin, WC and a fitted cabinet. On the first floor is a landing area ideal as a study/desk area with Velux providing natural light. The master bedroom also overlooks the canal with rural views beyond and has a stud partition giving space for storage in addition to the eaves. To the opposite side of the first floor is an internal room also with eaves and cupboard housing the gas fired combi boiler. Whilst this room has no natural light, permission could be applied for to install a window or roof light to make this a fully usable bedroom.


In a convenient yet rural setting on the banks of the working canal, the village of Hilperton is a charming Wiltshire village with amenities such as a primary school, church and a choice of public houses. There are country pursuits including walks and a number of bridle paths nearby. The town of Trowbridge provides further amenities as well as the nearby market towns of Devizes & Frome and the historic Saxon town of Bradford on Avon. Main line railway stations can be found at Trowbridge, Westbury, Chippenham and Bath.


Having direct frontage to the Kennett & Avon Canal with 40' mooring, there is a small area of garden to the side and front. A block paved drive leads to the front and a double width garage with a single door, ideal for storage. Note the neighbouring house has a right of access across this drive from the five bar gate.
