Property description

Tenure: Freehold

Dating from the 18th century, 2 School Lane is a stunning double fronted stone-built family home offering beautifully presented accommodation arranged over three floors. It has been sensitively-extended to provide an ideal family/entertaining space combining the amenities of modern living with retained character features including mullion and casement windows and some exposed beams, stone walls and original fireplaces. As is usual in properties of this age, the ground floor accommodation opens into a spacious front aspect sitting and dining room, configurable to the purchaser’s own requirements, with window seating, a mix of flagstone and wooden flooring and feature fireplaces at each end, one with a woodburning stove. Steps rise to a large recently-built rear aspect kitchen/breakfast room with a good range of bespoke wall and base units, wooden worktops, modern integrated appliances, bi-fold doors to the rear terrace and a useful neighbouring cloakroom/family shower room.

A concealed curved staircase rises from the sitting/dining room to the first floor which provides a spacious principal bedroom with extensive built-in storage and one further double bedroom with feature fireplace. A separate staircase rises from the landing to the property’s remaining double bedroom with vaulted ceiling and neighbouring modern family bathroom on the second floor.

Located within the Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, in the picturesque village of Castle Combe, voted “the prettiest village in England” and known for its unspoilt Cotswolds character and quintessential street scene, used as a location for films including War Horse, Stardust and Dr Dolittle. The village sits in a secluded position in the By Brook valley and offers a good range of day-to-day amenities including village shopping, a small hotel, public house and the Manor House Hotel with its Michelin-starred restaurant and golf club with a Peter Alliss-designed course, regarded as one of the top 100 in the UK. The nearby historic market town of Chippenham offers a pedestrianised High Street and market place with a large range of independent and High Street stores, two shopping centres, retail parks, supermarkets including Tesco and Waitrose and weekly markets. Slightly further afield, the Georgian city of Bath offers more extensive shopping, service and leisure amenities. Communications links are excellent: Chippenham train station offers a regular direct train service to London while the nearby M4 provides convenient access to London, Bath, Bristol, Swindon and the south west.

Having plenty of kerb appeal, the property is approached over steps rising to the property’s central front door flanked on each side by low-maintenance paved and gravelled seating areas. The enclosed part-walled terraced garden to the rear is laid mainly to level lawn bordered by well-stocked flowerbeds and features a garden pond, workshop, vegetable garden and chicken coop, a raised decked seating area and a separate generous paved terrace accessible from the kitchen/breakfast room, all ideal for entertaining and al fresco dining, the whole enjoying far-reaching views over open countryside to the rear.
