Pound House was once the barn of neighbouring Manor Farm and with just three walls remaining was converted and re-built in the late 1980s to create a detached home in this most sought after hamlet of honeyed Cotswold stone homes. The mellow stone façade is softened by climbers and a path leads to a stone covered entrance opening into the central hall. The light and airy sitting room has a dual aspect of the front and rear gardens plus a fireplace with a wood burning stove. The dining room is also well proportioned with direct access out to the pretty walled garden to the rear. The kitchen is a wonderful feature of Pound House, beautifully designed and hand made with painted wooden kitchen units under a deep rich coloured Iroko wood work surface. There are also integral appliances, wall cupboards, room for a breakfast table plus stairs down to the basement/utility room. The first floor has two suites; the master is a pretty bedroom with a pleasant view of the garden and a smart en-suite bathroom with a stylish suite and bespoke cabinetry. The guest room also has the benefit of a private shower room. The second floor has two charming bedrooms with dormer windows looking across the mellow stone walls and roof tops of your neighbours and the greenery beyond. They are both served by the family bathroom. This attractive modern home benefits from features of a period house such as random stone façade, Cotswold stone tiled roof, hand made kitchen and a wood burning stove all set in the prettiest walled garden.
West Yatton is a small hamlet of predominantly stone built period homes close to the larger village of Yatton Keynell; a sought-after location on the edge of the Cotswolds. This popular village benefits from a good selection of amenities including By Brook Valley Church of England Primary School, a village store and post office, a doctor’s surgery with dispensary plus The Bell Inn. A further neighbouring village is the famous and quintessential Castle Combe known for its traditional unspoilt character, fine hotel and golf club plus attractive public houses and race course. There is excellent access to the M4 via Junctions 17 or 18 offering easy access to Bristol or London. Bath is approximately thirteen miles and Chippenham is five miles, both with mainline train stations.
A gravel drive leads via a five bar wooden gate into the private drive and parking area. It is enclosed by dry stone walling with a variety of mature shrubs and climbing plants creating an appealing entrance to this charming home. The pretty front garden has a border of lavender and shrubs with a level lawn and terrace. A wonderful old byre with its stone pillars called ‘tubby columns’ is used for summer dining plus garden storage. One end of the byre has been enclosed to create a storage shed/workshop. The garden and path continue along the side with a border of trees and a stone wall. The garden to the rear also has a terrace adjacent to the dining room and a small neat lawn is bordered by summer flowers.
