Situated in a private position in an established part of Wroughton is this historic and interesting family home.

Believed to have been built around 1835, this delightful Grade II listed detached home has been thoughtfully extended and improved over recent years and offers over 3,000 sq ft of accommodation incorporated within a sizeable plot.

Entering the property through the large tiled entrance hall, stairs rise to the first floor and there is access to the ground floor reception rooms, as well as to the cellar rooms.

The delightful living room has sash windows to two sides and shutters to the front, high ceilings and an open fire with Victorian fireplace. Towards the front of the house is a charming music room with exposed floorboards, Victorian feature fireplace and a sash window. Book shelves have been built in either side of the chimney breast. There is also a snug located towards the centre of the property. With its own character, this room could have various uses depending on the needs on the owner. The snug leads out to a beautiful double-glazed garden room, constructed in 2017, which has a tiled floor and views over the rear garden - this is a wonderful room to relax and socialise in.

The ground floor is completed by a wonderful kitchen/dining room with a range of units finished with granite worktops. The wonderful AGA (available by separate negotiation) adds to the lovely feel of this refurbished kitchen in line with the character of the property. Completed with bi-fold doors overlooking the rear garden, this is the perfectl hub of this family home. Finally, there is a very useful boot/utility room which incorporates a Belfast sink, units and a WC.

To the first floor of the property, the two largest bedrooms are situated towards the front, both with sash windows, high ceilings and feature fireplaces. There is also the potential to create an en suite to Bedroom One, subject to the normal consents. There are two further double bedrooms and a single bedroom, as well as a most attractive family bathroom with separate double shower cubicle and a roll top bath, WC and wash basin. The first floor is completed by a separate WC and hand basin.

Outside, the property is approached by a driveway with parking for several cars and a lawned front garden. There is also a larger than average single garage.

The rear garden superbly complements this beautiful property. It stretches for some distance and is mainly laid to lawn, offering beds and borders, a range of trees and shrubs as well a pond. There is a large recently laid patio which enjoys views down the garden. In addition, there are a number of sheds and outhouses ideal for storage.

Wroughton lies just to the south of Swindon and on the edge of the Marlborough Downs. The construction of the M4 motorway prevented Swindon from enveloping Wroughton, which has retained a village identity, albeit with the population of a small market town (approximately 8,000 residents) in the early 21st century. Amenities include Wroughton Junior School and The Ridgeway (secondary) School, a parish church, the Weir Recreation Field and Wroughton Leisure Centre. The Ellendune Centre is a sports and entertainment venue that boasts one of the larger amateur facilities in the local area. It plays host to amateur dramatic groups who use it to meet and perform, including the Ellendune Entertainers and WADAMS (Wroughton Amateur Dramatic and Musical Society). Wroughton ASC Swimming Club is a competitive organisation which aims to train young swimmers of all abilities to attain a high standard of competitive achievement, at the same time enjoying themselves. The Science Museum Swindon, a part of the National Museum of Science and Industry, lies just south of the village on the site of the former RAF Wroughton base.
