Location

Little Somerford lies three miles south-east of Malmesbury, nine miles from Chippenham and thirteen miles from Swindon. The village has a church and village hall, where there are frequent daytime and evening activities including WI, a garden club, dog training classes and the like. Great Somerford, less than two miles distant has a late opening shop, public house and primary school. Junctions 16 and 17 are both within a convenient driving distance, providing easy access to the area's major employment centres, including Swindon, Bath and Bristol. The Somerford Arms is a free house and offers good food at reasonable prices.

The Property

Planning permission was granted in July 2016 for this bespoke new home, which is located on the rural outskirts of the village, tucked away some 60m (196'10 ) down a private drive with a gated entrance. The original property, Garden Cottage, was demolished and the stone reused, together with render to create a wonderful home, with character and charm. It has been built and finished to an extremely high standard with meticulous attention to detail throughout and the benefit of a 10 year CRL structural warranty. Particular features include fireplaces in both reception rooms, a fabulous triple aspect kitchen/breakfast/family room at the rear enjoying the southerly aspect over the adjoining fields, and quality sanitary ware throughout. There are painted hardwood windows with double glazing and LED lighting inside and out. The detached double garage has an external staircase to a home office over, ideal for anyone looking to work from home.

The Accommodation

The front door leads into a porch, with limestone flooring which continues into the hall, kitchen and utility room. There is a cloakroom and on the left is the dual aspect sitting room, which like the dining room has a fireplace equipped for a log burning stove. The dining room also has oak herringbone style flooring. At the rear is the fabulous kitchen/breakfast/family room which has a two oven electric Aga with integrated companion module, a larder unit plus an integrated dishwasher and full height fridge and freezers. At the front is the utility room with cupboards housing the hot water cylinder and valves for the underfloor heating. On the first floor are five bedrooms and three bath/shower rooms - two en suite. There is the option to have bedrooms one and three as a master suite if required, by positioning a door adjacent to the linen cupboard on the landing, as shown on the floor plan. Access to the loft is via bedroom two.

Outside

The drive from the road has South Cerney shingle and leads via a 5 bar gate to a parking and turning area adjoining the house. A pea shingle path encircles the house with a cobbled path from the front door to the utility room. There are planted borders around the house with lawns on both sides and a fenced paddock. Accessible from the kitchen through wide bi-fold doors is a large flagstone terrace and uninterrupted south facing views of the Dauntsey Vale beyond. NB: The neighbouring property have a right of way across the paddock for dog walking.
