About this property

TENURE: Freehold

Formerly White's Farmhouse the property has evolved along with the name over the last two centuries to become the elegant home that it is today. Extensions have kept it up to date with the demands of modern day living and this handsome Grade II Listed house offers a wealth of space with the added benefit of tall ceilings and large windows. The traditional farmhouse can be seen in the dressed quoins on the white rendered façade and the slate tiled roof and beyond the front door the features continue. The ground floor enjoys four main reception rooms as well as the kitchen and cloakroom. The library is fitted with rows of shelving and a striking marble fireplace housing a wood burning stove takes centre stage. The dining room has glazed cupboards and French doors to outside and direct access to the kitchen which is fitted with a range of cupboards and includes double oven, ceramic hob and also has a door to the garden. The main sitting room cum drawing room is 33ft long and enjoys a triple aspect, a step and faux wall pillars cleverly provide a separation between the two spaces. The sitting room has a black marble fireplace with open fire which gives this room a feeling of grandeur and French doors open on the rear garden. Step down into the drawing room and this space has a different feel with views to the front it offers a reflective, creative space and leads through to the garden room. Running the length of the western side of the house the garden room connects the outside with the inside, it is an area in which to relax and take in the view. Beneath the ground floor there is a useful cellar used as a utility room and it is ideal for storage and accessed also via a door from outside.

Head upstairs to the first floor where an inviting landing awaits with a study area at one end which via an arched window takes in the view of the village. To the front of the house there are two double bedrooms with wonderful views the second of which has a built in wardrobe. The master bedroom sits at the back of the house and benefits from a stylish en-suite shower room and Juliet balcony which overlooks the garden. The fourth bedroom has vaulted ceiling and a Juliet balcony which looks out onto the garden. The family bathroom with bath and separate shower completes upstairs.

North Wilts and fine walking and riding in the surrounding countryside. Local schools include Marlborough College, St Mary’s at Calne and Dauntseys.
