The Old Coach House is a superb Grade II Listed period home set in a delightful location just off the centre of this popular Wiltshire village. With origins dating back to 1793 and retaining a similar footprint to the original building of the time, this individual home has a spacious and light interior. A grand entrance hall with solid oak flooring and a stone arch leads into the magnificent 24ft triple aspect drawing room with a bay window, an impressive fireplace with a log burning stove and a high ceiling. Of particular note are the original Lion head cast iron knockers. A good sized separate dining room has a floor to ceiling arched window, oak flooring and a stable door into the kitchen. The beautiful handmade kitchen features limestone flooring, and solid granite worktops and a range of quality built-in 'Neff' appliances. There is a fitted dresser and French doors out to the rear garden.

On the first floor there are two generous double bedrooms one with an en suite shower room and the other an en suite bathroom. The triple aspect vaulted main bedroom could be reinstated back into two bedrooms as it was previously if one so wished. A pull down loft ladder ascends to a charming attic room with a skylight, carpet, light and power and access to the previous dovecote window.
