Littlecote is a delightful family home with beautifully presented accommodation, generous gardens, active planning permission to extend further and enviable far reaching views; all within walking distance of the town centre and mainline railway station. Individually built in 1939 to a design more reminiscent of an earlier Arts and Crafts period retaining original features such as high ceilings, beams and oak flooring, the property has a spacious feel from the moment you walk in the elegant entrance hall. There are three well proportioned reception rooms on the ground floor, including a lovely sitting room with wood burning stove, spacious dining room and a versatile study/play room. In addition, there is a conservatory enjoying pleasant views, a useful downstairs cloakroom, utility room and bright and airy kitchen/breakfast room opening on to the garden. Upstairs, there are four bedrooms, one with en-suite shower room, as well as a family bathroom with roll top bath and separate shower. The tiered gardens benefit from a southerly aspect and are well established with mature trees and a variety of seasonal plants and shrubs. A large patio terrace steps down to a large area of level lawn and down again to a wildlife garden, home to a majestic oak tree. There is ample parking on the gravel drive to the front and a tandem length garage adjoining the house. No onward chain.


The Property is pleasantly situated on the popular Western side of Chippenham and is just a short walk away from the town and all amenities which include a public library and the pleasant Monkton Park with riverside walks and cycleways. There is convenient pedestrian access to the mainline railway station (London Paddington - approx. 75 minutes). The M4 motorway, the A4 and the A420 offer excellent motor commuting to the major centres of Bath, Bristol, Swindon & London. There is a good choice of private schooling and Chippenham also offers excellent secondary schools and primary schools, together with Wiltshire College.
