Located centrally in the highly desirable village of Milton Lilbourne is this truly exceptional 4 bedroom detached Grade II Listed thatched house. Believed to date from the mid 18th century it has been largely rebuilt and sympathetically extended in 2003 to create a fabulous and functional family home. This lovely substantial house (3500 sq. ft.) has high ceilings and predominantly large windows making this a surprisingly light and bright home throughout. There are many period features and much warmth and character coupled with a versatile and adaptable layout.
Of particular note is the kitchen/breakfast room; the kitchen has an excellent range of cupboards with granite work surfaces and is fitted with an Aga with space for a secondary cooker. This lovely room opens into the breakfast/dining area which has a large window with window seat and glazed doors that open into a family snug which has French doors onto the sun terrace. Off the kitchen is a long and brilliantly useful utility room which runs along the back of the house. The sitting room is a fabulous, light and spacious room. A dining room, library and cloakroom complete the ground floor. There are two staircases to the first floor. The master bedroom is a wonderfully light room, with vaulted ceiling, built in cupboards and a spacious ensuite bathroom. Off this room is a landing room, ideal for use as a dressing room, reading room or nursery. There is a walk-in wardrobe, stairs to the second floor and access to the rest of the first floor through the shower room.
The second staircase leads to two further double bedrooms and a family bathroom. Bedroom 3 has a Jack & Jill ensuite shower room.
On the second floor is an office/sitting room leading to a fabulously large bedroom and ensuite bathroom.
Milton Lilbourne is perhaps the finest village in the Pewsey Vale in the unspoilt heart of rural Wiltshire. It is a no-through village at the eastern edge of the Vale of Pewsey, a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty providing plentiful footpaths, bridleways and cycle routes in the immediate vicinity. The village has an active village hall, sports field, play park and church and is closely linked with the neighbouring community of Easton Royal, where there is an excellent village school (part of the St John’s Excalibur Academy). There are also highly regarded independent and secondary schools in the area including St. Francis, Dauntsey’s, Pinewood, Marlborough College and St. John’s Academy.
Pewsey station is less than a 10 minute drive away with a regular direct service into London Paddington and the shops, cafes, markets and restaurants of Marlborough are also nearby.
The accommodation is complemented by beautiful gardens landscaped in a traditional cottage garden style which wrap around the house and are fully stocked with a variety of specimen trees, shrubs and flowers. There is a sun terrace adjoining the house, offering a high degree of privacy and is ideal for outside entertaining. A gravel drive has parking for several cars and there is a pretty detached thatched garage.
