A superb family home of excellent proportions set in stunning gardens approaching 1/4 of an acre, situated in the highly desirable village of Chilmark.
The Old Police House offers deceptively spacious, versatile accommodation perfectly suited to families or couples alike. The home has been in the same family for four decades having been lovingly maintained and sympathetically enhanced, whilst still offering ample scope for further improvement or extension.
The well balanced, generous accommodation comprises a welcoming entrance hall which leads to the dual aspect formal sitting room with a warming open fire. There is a formal dining room that then leads on to the open plan, spacious kitchen/breakfast room. This 'heart of the home' room is flooded with natural light, is comprehensively appointed and has lovely views across the sizable, pretty garden. Adjoining the kitchen is a useful utility room that has appropriate foundations to build above creating a fourth bedroom or en-suite to the master bedroom. There is then a beautiful conservatory across a rear lobby that has French doors leading out to the garden, the perfect summer room. A cloakroom and rear porch complete the ground floor accommodation. On the first floor there are three generous double bedrooms, all in excellent decorative order that are serviced by a stylish, modern family bathroom.

The garden is a particular feature of this home extending to approximately 1/4 of an acre. The home occupies an elevated position to the fore front of its plot with parking for several vehicles on a gated driveway. This in turn leads to the detached garage. There is a decorative front garden with lawn and floral borders to the driveway behind an attractive hedged front boundary.
The garden is mainly to the rear and has been beautifully landscaped and managed creating useable, functional 'garden rooms'. An established lawn wraps around the home extending out to the curved raised stone wall and hedge separating the formal gardens from the extensive kitchen garden. The lawn is flanked and interspersed with colourful floral and herbaceous borders and beds with a paved terrace abutting the rear of the home, providing a wonderful outside dining and entertaining area that enjoys an excellent degree of privacy. Beyond the sweeping curved wall is a comprehensive, mature array of raised productive vegetable beds and fruit cages. there is a green house, log store, potting shed and large garden store. Adjoining the rear of the garage there are two sizeable workshops and an outside work space, neatly gated off of the main part of the garden.
Gardens of this size and calibre are rare, completing this unique, special village home.
