Owned by the same family for almost 60 years, The Manor House has been maintained to an exceptionally high standard while retaining the original features throughout including mouldings and some original glass windows. The Georgian
style property dates back to 1715 and offers flexible living accommodation over three floors. Entering the property through the original front door into a large entrance hall leading off from the hall are the formal dining and living rooms
which both retain both the original Oak floorboards and wooden sash windows overlooking the formal lawned garden. Leading off of the main hallway are two wings of the house which consist on one side the large kitchen/dining room with separate utility space and the other a large recently renovated family room and sun room. The two wings are connected via a beautifully private courtyard which is perfect for alfresco dining. Above the family room there is a self contained
office space with a small kitchen and w.c.
The original sweeping timber staircase leads up to the first floor which opens up onto a large landing. The impressive double aspect main bedroom overlooks the front of the property and has a large ensuite bathroom. There are two single bedrooms on this floor along with a large double guest room all served by a family bathroom. The staircase continues to wind its way up to the second floor which contains three double bedrooms with views across the village and towards the surrounding countryside.
Chiseldon offers good facilities including a doctors surgery, restaurant and local farm shop. The private educational establishments of Pinewood, Dauntsey’s, Marlborough College and St Mary’s are all within driving distance along with some excellent state schools. The larger commercial town of Swindon with a comprehensive range of shopping, commercial and recreational facilites is just over 4 miles away with railway links to London Paddington (1 hour) and the West Country. M4 Junction 15 is just 1 mile away along with the A345 to Marlborough and A419 to Cirencester.
The property is approached via a tree lined private driveway which leads down past the house towards a paved turning circle which provides parking for several cars. There are also two double garages which are tucked away within the trees.
At the front of the house there is a large garden area which is laid to lawn and bordered by mature trees and shrubs. There are a further two courtyard gardens (perfectly placed to catch the sun) along with a kitchen garden.
Planning permission has been granted for the erection of an office/games room on the grounds of the property (planning number S/11/1717). The footings have already been laid by the current owners thus keeping the planning permission
alive in perpetuity.
