Full description

This four bedroom period house with attached stone barn, with gardens, car port for three cars with plenty of additional parking, is situated in the old part of the idyllic Wiltshire village of Atworth.

The vendors say: “We have lived here for nearly 35 extremely happy and rewarding years. We had been searching for land to build on, but then saw the enormous potential for the properties, in the process of renovation, which had recently been sold to developers by Neston Park Estate. Over the years, we’ve managed to acquire extra snippets of land to add to the gardens and tidy up the boundaries. We’ve seen our children grow up and make the most of the amazing space and then our grandchildren too have enjoyed everything the property has to offer, inside and out. The gardens, which partly wrap around the house, with their differing features, also give the feeling of ‘extra outside rooms’.”

“We believe the main house, probably dating back to the nineteenth century and possibly earlier, was originally a carter’s cottage with stables, a hay loft and dovecot. Now it is a spacious four bedroom two bathroom house. The sitting room has a working fire and is very cosy. The kitchen is also a lovely space. Two years ago we knocked two rooms into one to make a gorgeous new kitchen with granite tops and engineered oak floors and it is so nice to sit there with the French doors open to the garden. Upstairs the dual aspect master bedroom which gets both the morning and evening sun, benefits from a flexible arrangement with its en-suite facility owing to doorway arrangements on the landing. There are beautiful views across the fields towards the range of hills near Devizes and the Wiltshire Downs can also be seen to the South.”

“The ambience of the barn enhances this excellent area for congregating on those ‘larger gathering occasions’ and at particular times, such as Christmas, we have set up a table for a comfortable 18 or more place settings. There’s plenty of room height too, for a large Christmas tree. There are also services at the end of the barn so that it would be possible to create a bathroom if required.”

“We have been blessed with amazing neighbours, so there is a truly special sense of community here. The village is served by a main bus route into Bath, a primary school, the independent Stonar School, two churches, garage, filling station and shop with an integral Post Office, farm shop, garden centre, three pubs, many walks and cycle routes, a Youth Club, Recreation ground with football pitches, tennis court, swings and slides. Nearby Melksham has a number of supermarkets, such as Waitrose, Sainsbury’s, Asda and Lidl. The ‘National Trust Village’ of Lacock is also nearby. The attractive town of Bradford on Avon, 5 miles away has a station to London (Waterloo) / or Bath, Chippenham station is some 8 miles away for commuting to London (Paddington) in around 1 hour 20 minutes. The M4 motorway is some 25 minutes’ drive away to the North.”

“We will miss this very versatile house and all that it has to offer in this brilliant location that has been the most perfect spot for us and our family … and the very thing that ‘dreams are made of’. “

There is an opportunity to purchase the separate two bedroom cottage next door, possibly for a dependent relative, shorthold tenancy or bed and breakfast business.
