Location

Chalcot Coach House is situated on a no through road in the quintessentially rural surroundings of South West Wiltshire. The house sits on an elevated position giving outstanding vistas over a region that is known for its natural beauty, walking, country sports and local produce.
The hamlet of Short Street is conveniently located within 3.5 miles of Westbury. Warminster and Frome are also close by, offering a full range of shops, schools and leisure facilities. The nearest train station for the mainline is Westbury, providing a regular service to London Paddington (journey time approx 90 minutes). The World Heritage city of Bath, well known for its Roman heritage and Georgian architecture, is approximately 14.5 miles away. The property is conveniently situated for transport links being some 24 miles from the M4 (junction 17) and 15 miles from the A303.

Description

Chalcot Coach House is believed to have been designed by the leading architect J.P.St Aubyn, famed for his redesigning of St Michael's Mount in Cornwall and drawings for Truro Cathedral. This is thought to be one of his limited number of private residential commissions by the eminent merchant family, Phipps. Aubyn was very much a leader of his architectural field throughout the early part of the 19th Century. The Coach House was locally revered to be a showcase of both builder and architectural competency and style, hence its incredibly detailed and elegant exterior.

Chalcot Coach House is a fine example of a Grade II Listed family house, originally dating back to the late 1800s. The property forms three sides of a charming courtyard and is situated in gardens and grounds of approximately 40 acres with an open aspect to the rear. The accommodation is arranged over two floors offering well proportioned rooms and is finished to a high standard throughout. The double-aspect rooms are particularly light and overlook the professionally landscaped gardens.
Chalcot Coach House offers further potential in unconverted rooms on the ground and first floor of the southern wing (subject to the necessary permissions).

Gardens and Grounds
Accessed via a discreet set of electric gates, the substantial driveway leads through the private parkland to the south-east facing courtyard and boasts superb details, including a clock tower and spire. The grounds at Chalcot Coach House are well thought out providing a mixture of areas from landscaped gardens to mature woodland. The swimming pool area has been completely remodelled, including a summer house providing family entertainment and a wonderful secluded place to sit and enjoy the evening sun. The grounds also benefit from substantial open parkland and pasture ideal for grazing. The 25 acres of woodland are mature with pathways and tracks throughout. The land then meanders down to the spring fed lake, with seating areas around the grounds to enjoy views of the surrounding countryside.
