**BEST & FINAL BIDS BY 12:00 18/2/19** Country living doesn't get much better than this: lovely rural location; great outlook over your own gardens, paddocks and woodland- a fine period house. In all nearly 8 acres. No onward chain. This exceptional village home, believed to date back in part to the late 1700s, has been extensively renovated by the current owners and successfully combines period features such as Inglenook fireplaces and exposed beams and wall timbering, with the modern comforts of a new home. The well laid out accommodation is versatile, spacious and eludes a contemporary feel. There are three reception rooms (two featuring log burning stoves) complemented by an impressive 33ft triple aspect kitchen/dining room. Please note planning has been granted to extend the house to one side and create a bigger standalone kitchen. In addition, there is a utility, boot room, downstairs cloakroom and traditional pantry/scullery. On the first floor there are a possible 5/6 bedrooms with two large stylish en suite bathrooms and a third en suite shower room. All of the bedrooms enjoying fine views over either open countryside or the well stocked garden. Outside this home really comes into its own with ample secure parking, a 33ft coach house/garaging offering great potential for an annexe, stabling or home office (subject to planning). The private established gardens have an array of specimen trees and a good sized level lawn. The 2 paddocks to the front have a small orchard, an old pig sty and 2 field shelters and are all well fenced. There is approximately 2 acres of young and established woodland and also planning for an agricultural barn.


The property is set in a highly desirable location, tucked away off the main village road with open countryside all round. The charming village of Worton has a public house, a primary school and a Church. A large array of amenities including shops, supermarkets, banks, building societies, bars and restaurants can be found at nearby Devizes which is approximately 4 miles away. There is also a thriving weekly market and regular farmers' market.

The historic cities of Bath and Salisbury are less than 25 miles away. The Pewsey Vale, Stonehenge and the village of Avebury are all within approximately 20 minutes drive. Mainline railway links run from nearby Chippenham, Westbury and Pewsey to London, and the M4 motorway is easily accessible. There is an excellent selection of schools, at both primary and secondary levels. Successful schools in the state and private sectors include: Dauntsey's, Marlborough College, Stonar and St Mary's.
