Town centre location

The property is tucked away off Whitehill within a stone's throw of the town centre and all the amenities it has to offer. It has been sympathetically modernised whilst retaining original features.

You enter the property through a high timber gate, past the front door, and along a gravelled pathway. The secluded walled garden is ahead of you as you continue round to the back door. Externally, the house is everything you'd expect from a period property in Bradford-on-Avon built in local stone with wooden sash windows. Inside, the house is beautifully presented in a fresh and contemporary style and has lost none of its period charm.

You walk through the back door into a bright, tastefully decorated reception room, currently used as a home study. It has wooden flooring, a sash window looking out onto the garden, and built-in cupboards, one with space and plumbing for a washing machine and dryer. An old fireplace has been neatly adapted into a shelved alcove. There is a cloakroom with WC and handbasin under the stairs.

The sitting-room boasts some delightful original features, including cupboard and fireplace with ornate inset and granite hearth. Carpeted, cosy and sparingly decorated, with a front-facing window giving plenty of light, this is a perfect space for comfy and relaxed family time.

A door leads from the sitting-room into the stunning dual aspect kitchen/diner. The dining space features painted timber floorboards and an impressive stone fireplace. The kitchen area, with two windows giving a pretty garden view, has ceramic floor tiles and underfloor heating. The thoughtful design extends the contemporary grey base cabinets between the kitchen and dining area to create a breakfast bar. With range cooker, integrated dishwasher, on-trend lighting and stylish shelving, this is a practical and elegant space to cook and entertain in.

On the first floor there are two doubles and two single bedrooms, which lead off a landing running the length of the house. The master bedroom has two built-in cupboards that fit perfectly with the period feel of the house, and a view over the rooftops of the town. The other double can comfortably fit a double bed, bedside tables, wardrobe and chest of drawers. The singles have lovely views over the garden. At the end of the landing, in the well laid-out family bathroom, you have a bath, wash hand basin, low level WC and spacious tiled shower room.

THE GARDEN

When you walk through the entrance gate, along the gravelled path and into the secluded secret garden, you're entering an unexpected place of peace and privacy. This beautifully-designed garden, hidden from neighbouring buildings, has an array of shrubs and plants giving it colour throughout the year. At the top of the garden is a sun-trap seating and barbecue area, ideal for al fresco dining. Two original, stone-built outbuildings add character: a tastefully decorated summerhouse, previously used as a home office, with electricity and underfloor heating; and a tool shed, also with power and light, tucked away in the corner.

SITUATION

Bradford on Avon provides a wide range of shops, cafes, restaurants and public houses, including Timbrells Yard and The Weaving Shed. There is also a library, swimming pool and good range of educational facilities. The railway station provides direct services to Bath, Bristol, Salisbury and London Waterloo and within walking distance of the property.
