A very rare opportunity to purchase a sizable detached property in a semi rural location with breath taking views to the south and west.

Location

Located 10 miles south of Marlborough is the hamlet of Brunton, adjacent to the village of Collingbourne Kingston. Records of Brunton's existence date back to the 10th century, under Saxon ownership, and it is near the sites of several barrows. The manor was previously known as Collingbourne Valence , in reference to the noble family which owned it and neighbouring settlements in the 13th and 14th centuries. The property gets its name from nearby ancient strip lychet field system dating back beyond Roman times when they were believed to have been planted with grape vines due to the land facing south west. The village is located at the end of a no through road with the beginning of the bridleway and footpath at the end of the driveway to the property which leads up onto the downs.

The property

Believed to have been built in the 1950's the property has been internally redesigned to provide spacious family accommodation with further potential available either out or up subject to usual permissions, to create a property equally spectacular as its unique location. It should be noted that the property does require some updating and improvement.

Stepping up from the parking area to the front door and through into the hall. To the right is a small study with views to the front, staircase rises to the first floor landing, double sided wood burner, door to the kitchen/dining room but firstly we will turn right into the sitting room. Window to the side and double doors out onto a large raised patio area overlooking the gardens and valley beyond and the aforementioned wood burning stove. Back into the hall and right into the L shaped kitchen/dining room with windows to the east and west and double doors out into the garden. This is a great sized room with good range of modern wall and base fitted units, space for appliances and space for a large 6/8 seater table. A door then leads into the rear hall, downstairs cloakroom and utility area with boiler for the central heating, drying area and door out into the rear garden. Back into the hall and up the staircase to the first floor landing with airing cupboard and access to the large part boarded loft. Two large double bedrooms and two large single bedrooms (both of which could accommodate a double bed if required), all enjoying a double aspect to take advantage of the lovely views and finally the modern family bathroom.

Parking, garage and gardens.

A driveway leads up to the parking area which provides ample room for 6/8 cars and on to the detached oversized single garage, with power and lighting.

The gardens extend to 2/3rd acre surrounding the property. As we walk up the driveway to the left is a part enclosed garden area mainly laid to lawn with raised flower beds, mature beech hedging and a greenhouse. This area has the potential, subject to usual permissions to become a parking area, increased garaging or maybe even separate dwelling. It should be noted that no research has been undertaken into this.

A pathway leads around the back of the house by the garage and onto a paved patio area on three sides of the property. The west garden area slopes away from the property edged with locally sourced flint walling, stocked with a wealth of bulbs, shrubs and maturing trees. The lower garden has established fruit trees edged with mature beech hedging. Finally a gateway opens back around to the front door.

Services, tenure and local authority

Mains electricity and water and drainage. Oil fired central heating. Telephone lines subject to the usual transfer regulations. (No tests to the suitability of services have been carried out and intending purchasers should commission their own tests if required).

The property is Freehold.
