Little Acre is situated on Slipper Lane, a quiet no-through road in the village of Chiseldon. Lying within the North Wessex Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Chiseldon is surrounded by some of Wiltshire’s most stunning countryside. This substantial family home has been the subject of numerous extensions and modification by the current owners to offer spacious and well-presented interiors and flexible accommodation that could be ideal for multi-generational living.
Chiseldon itself boasts 2 pubs, village shop, newsagents, primary school and doctors’ surgery amongst its many amenities. It’s conveniently located for travel as junctions 15 and 16 of the M4 are close at hand. Swindon railway station is approximately 6 miles away and provides direct train links to London Paddington in under an hour, and Bristol in under 40 minutes.
The attention to detail in the work carried out at Little Acre is clear to see. Large open spaces such as the vast glass-roofed dining room at the centre of the home are complemented by well-thought through kitchen space, with excellent provisions for storage. One side of the house can function independently as an annexe and a range of configurations are possible including use of several of the rooms as home offices.
The front door opens into a large entrance hall with generous cupboards for coats and shoes and downstairs WC. There are two kitchens, both fitted with space to dine and both adjoining the large dining room with conservatory roof and windows, offering excellent views onto the garden. A well-appointed sitting room also adjoining the dining room, giving excellent flow to the reception rooms. In addition, there’s a study, games room and snug which can be put to a variety of uses, including additional bedroom space if required. A useful utility room with side door completes the ground floor.
There are two staircases to the first floor, and 3 out of the 5 double bedrooms benefit from an en-suite bath or shower room. A generous family bathroom with freestanding bath and shower serves bedrooms 4 and 5. The main bedroom suite has a large walk-in wardrobe space which leads to further loft storage. The whole house is beautifully presented throughout, and the interiors are decorated in a neutral palate.
The property is approached via a quiet no-through road and has paved driveway parking for numerous vehicles. A substantial double garage with roll-up doors provides an area for vehicle storage, or a workshop. The front garden has been planted with attractive raised beds, and the rear garden is divided into a lawned section and a vegetable garden and is bordered to the rear by several mature trees offering excellent privacy.
Mentioned in the Domesday Book in 1086 as Chiseldene, Chiseldon lies on one of the UK oldest communication routes, The Ridgeway. Barbury Castle, an iron-age hill fort, lies a few miles south and has stunning panoramic views of the surrounding area. It is one of many notable points of interest along the Ridgeway National Trail, just one of many local footpaths to explore. The village shop is within few minutes’ walk and provides for mainly daily necessities and as does the newsagents. The nearby village of Wroughton, approximately 2.5 miles away, has a wide range of shops and amenities including post office, butcher, dentist, barbers and two mini-supermarkets. There is a good selection of country pubs in the area too, perfect for breaking up a walk. More extensive shopping and facilities are available in Swindon and the nearby market town of Marlborough. The area is incredibly well connected, with Swindon mainline station approximately 6 miles away and junction 15 of the M4 is just a mile to the north, making it ideal for those seeking an easy commute from a peaceful village location.
