High Street, Steeple Ashton, Wiltshire


Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 5
This is a charming and attractive period home with origins believed to date back to the 18th Century. Well presented with deceptively spacious accommodation. Formerly the village shop and bakery, Bakewell House is Grade II Listed and retains a wealth of character; the architectural detailing is delightful and the two buildings have been skilfully converted into the one house that it is today. Clean lines meet old beams: a well-appointed kitchen with under floor heating, an Aga and French doors that open onto the garden; there are open fireplaces, an illuminated well and the old baker's oven works well as a wine cellar. There are four/five reception rooms and on the first floor five bedrooms, master with en suite, a family bathroom and a large attic offering scope for conversion (subject to planning). Outside a gated driveway leads to a garage, ample parking, a useful outbuilding with potential, and a sunny partly walled rear garden. No onward chain


From Devizes follow the A361 towards Trowbridge, at the Semington roundabout turn left and follow the A350 signposted to Warminster. Proceed for a short distance and at the brow of the hill turn left to Steeple Ashton. Continue into the village and the property will be found on the right hand side just fronting on to the village green.


This attractive period home is situated in an enviable setting amidst a fine selection of Character properties in the heart of the picturesque village of Steeple Ashton.
