Full description

A charming 16th century former farmhouse with a lovely south facing garden, garage, workshop and oak framed barn with potential to improve.

The Property - An outstanding family home in this most sought after village location. Full of character, charm and modern touches, interesting history and yet still provides scope for the new owner to make it their own. The property is believed to date back over 450 years and was the principle farmhouse covering Whittonditch. Gentrified in the late Georgian period and enlarged to the southern side, the accommodation is cosy or spacious, depending on the room you are in, a true property of Character! Beenham House is built side on to Whittonditch Road. Walking through two wrought iron gates, into the front garden, across the parking area and down the path to the front door.

The Accommodation - The property was built in a linear design with rooms leading onto the next. We walk through the front door into the hall with staircase straight ahead rising to the first floor, turning left into the drawing room with window to the front, attractive open fireplace and stripped wood floor. Back through the hall and on into the dining room, again window to the front, large understairs cupboard and Victorian fireplace. Next is a small lobby with shelving, door left into a superb old fashioned pantry, with pine shelving, storage cupboards and space for a large fridge freezer. Back into the lobby, left and step down into the kitchen/breakfast room. This was designed and built by the current owner with integrated gas range cooker, dishwasher, microwave, storage cupboards and superb breakfast bar built into the large bay window overlooking the garden.

Continued - A door from here conceals the second staircase rising to the study or fourth bedroom, but we will finish the ground floor before venturing upstairs. So next we walk into the garden hall with door right into a covered porch leading out into the garden, door left into a great sized cloakroom and utility with high level WC, space for coats, shoes, dogs, bags, guns (anything really!), Belfast sink, plumbing for washing machine and space for other appliances. Finally we walk into a sitting or garden room, glazed on two complete sides, with doors out into the garden, wood burning stove and exposed original brick walls. OK that is downstairs, we will go back to the entrance hall and go up the main staircase to the first floor.

Upstairs - Onto the landing and left into the first bedroom with window to the front, two deep wardrobes and an ensuite shower room with underfloor heating. Across the landing into the second bedroom, again a handsome double bedroom with window to the front and built in wardrobes. It has potential to add on an en suite bathroom. A door from here opens into the study or fourth bedroom with window to the front, recessed storage, staircase descending to the kitchen and doorway to the landing. Door left into a separate cloakroom, right into the family bathroom with freestanding claw foot cast iron bath with mixer taps over, wash basin and large heated towel rail. This room also has under floor heating. Finally into what is used as the master bedroom with windows to the front and side and two double built in wardrobes. OK that is inside, let's have a wander outside.

Parking, Garaging, Workshop, Garden And Barn - To the front of the property is a small lawned garden, outside light, gravelled driveway for 3 - 4 cars, double gates into the garden.
Full width glazed double doors open into what was Ramsbury Parish Council office, now used as a handsome garage, windows to the side, storage cupboards and door to a workshop to the rear. This has double doors out into the garden, power, lighting, window to the side and workbench.
The garden faces south and extends over 75' x just under 60' maximum. Mainly laid to lawn with mature fruit trees and herbaceous borders. Large covered wood store, outside lighting and water tap. To the right is the barn.
The barn was the original wheelwrights workshop dating back at least 150 years. Its condition is best described as requiring some care and attention mainly used for the last 20 years to house the owners camper van, motorbikes and workshop. It has power, lighting and in 2013 was granted planning permission to be converted into garden office/studio building.
