For Sale with Fine & Country Bath
A castellated period Grade II listed link detached property with four bedrooms and three reception rooms, gardens, garage/workshop, and secluded walled garden.
The house is in a superb location, set on the edge of the Cotswold Hills, between the thriving villages of Marshfield and Colerne, in the tiny hamlet of Ashwicke. It is approached down a private road serving a small community yet is only 6.7 miles from Bath and 8 miles away from M4 Motorway.
The house, which was once part of the estate dating back to the seventeenth century, has a cobbled area at the front with conservatory doors opening in to the house. The conservatory has lovely views over the west facing garden and it is so relaxing to sit there with a glass of wine in the evening sun. The conservatory leads into the kitchen. The kitchen is the much loved hub of the home with an oil fired Rayburn. The sitting room is a large room, but very cosy with a log burning stove. We also have a second sitting room or study which has a gas fired wood burner. There is a useful utility room with a cloakroom and a hall area. The circular staircase leads up to the first floor which has three generous double bedrooms, the master is en suite with a separate shower and bath and a dressing room. There is a family bathroom on this floor as well. A spiral staircase leads up to the second floor which has a huge double bedroom with two Velux windows, so is a very bright, spacious room.
The gardens to the front have a lawn with flower beds and a garage/workshop. At the rear there is a small lawned area with the oil tank.
Both the villages of Marshfield and Colerne have excellent facilities which include primary schools, both of which have ‘Good’ Ofsted ratings, two public houses in each village, doctors’ surgeries, convenience shops, hairdressers, post offices, and coffee/tea shops. There are also thriving sports and social clubs including the cricket, football, rugby and tennis clubs.
There is a main line rail service to London from Bath, 6.7 miles away, and Chippenham station is also within easy reach at 10.2 miles away.
