Standing in gardens and grounds extending to 1.8 acres, The Old Rectory is a fine Grade II listed detached residence that provides over 6,000 square feet of free flowing accommodation on the edge of a sought after village near Malmesbury. We understand The Old Rectory dates back to the early 17th Century with later additions and more recently in 2007 with the introduction of a fabulous green oak framed breakfast room to complement the kitchen. The living space has been lovingly maintained by the owners and is arranged over two floors comprising on the ground floor a stunning 20ft. reception/dining hall with an impressive stone surround with wood burner and a renovated limestone flag floor. The kitchen breakfast room is a delightful sunny room and features a full complement of modern fitted units, granite/oak worktops, breakfast bar, and double doors to the garden. Both the kitchen breakfast room and the reception hall are fitted with a ‘wet’ under floor heating system off the main boiler. The drawing room and sitting room are both extremely light and spacious rooms offering high ceilings, open fires and two sash windows. In addition there is a library, a study, and a utility boot room with level-access shower room/cloakroom off. The first floor accommodation provides seven bedrooms, a games room, and two contemporary family bathrooms, one with a separate shower enclosure. There are two separate fully boarded attic spaces served by their own staircases, one of which is currently used as a studio.
Little Somerford lies three miles south east of Malmesbury, 9 miles from Chippenham and 13 miles from Swindon. The village has a church, a well regarded public house, The Somerford Arms, and a village hall which is shared with neighbouring Great Somerford, less than two miles away, which has a local shop, public house and primary school. Junctions 16 & 17 of the M4 are both within a convenient driving distance and provide easy access to the area’s major employment centres, including Swindon, Bath and Bristol. Mainline railway stations are at Chippenham and Kemble (approx. 11 miles) both with regular services running into London Paddington.
The property is approached via a gravelled driveway to the side of the church which branches off to serve three neighbouring properties and separately to The Old Rectory. Mature trees and established hedgerow line the approach to the house which leads to a spacious gravelled parking area. Gardens lie to the front, rear and side of the property and offer interest to suit all garden lovers. The gardens offer high levels of privacy and southerly orientation as well as a pretty wooded walk to the eastern boundary, a vegetable garden to the rear, and a beautiful assortment of mature trees that surround the property. Two brick built workshops are located at the rear along with a detached double garage and wood shed. In addition the present owners have obtained planning permission for a green oak framed detached studio of 750 square feet to be sited in the garden near the house. The driveway is owned by The Old Rectory and vehicular access to the outbuildings and garage are by continuing along the driveway at the front and branching to the left.
