The Property

Located between Malmesbury and Crudwell, and with open views to the east over the neighbouring Charlton Park Estate, this detached home dates from the mid 19th Century. It offers versatile accommodation that includes three holiday letting en suite bedrooms. Extended and much improved by the current owners over the last 21 years, and sitting in a generous plot extending to about 0.6 of an acre, the main house has period features coupled with modern finishes like the oak and limestone flooring. A new oak framed garage, car port and log store was added in 2016 and there is extensive parking. For those requiring home-working, superfast fibre is available direct to the house.

The Accommodation

The heart of the home is the newly refitted kitchen/breakfast room, with oak work surfaces and shelving. It is open to a study area and, in turn the family room beyond, which has access to the garden. The other side of the kitchen is the dining room, with two pairs of arched external French doors providing access to the garden. The sitting room next door is triple aspect with a log burning stove. A study with vaulted ceiling, a cloakroom, utility room and boot room complete the ground floor accommodation. On the first floor, the master bedroom is triple aspect with built-in wardrobes. There are three further bedrooms, one with a shower and a large family bathroom with roll top bath. The former triple garage now comprises three high-end holiday lets, two on the ground floor and one above, which are capable of generating £30,000 - £40,000 gross income per annum.


Twin electric gates lead from the road to a large parking and turning area for numerous vehicles. There is an area of garden at the front normally reserved for the holiday lets, with a large south facing garden to the rear of the main house, afforded privacy by mature trees, hedging and fencing. A gate at the rear provides access to a public footpath leading through the Charlton Park Estate. Close to the entrance is an oak framed gaarge and car barn with power and light. There is an adjoining log store and chicken enclosure.


The property is freehold. Mains electricity is connected, private water and drainage supply. The oil fired boiler supplies central heating and hot water, with underfloor heating in the two ground floor letting bedroom suites.
