Church End, Purton

Description The Old Coach House represents a fantastic opportunity to acquire an INDIVIDUAL, SUBSTANTIAL dwelling, extending to c. 2400 sq. ft. set on a mature plot of some 1.6 ACRES within the RARELY AVAILABLE location of Church End in Purton. Offered for sale with NO ONWARD CHAIN, Sole agents Charles Harding are pleased to present this EXCEPTIONAL HOME, which historically would have been built as one of a small cluster of properties with the backdrop of St Mary’s Church behind, having been SYMPATHETICALLY REDESIGNED and rebuilt between 1976 and 1979 and remained in the same family ever since. Some original features still remain, most notably the coach house arches to the front adding to the feel of history which this home exudes. With flexible and adaptable accommodation, this property is perfect for modernising, extension (STPP) and re-designing without the ties that come with being a listed building. The extensive ground floor accommodation is accessed via a large hallway which in turn leads to a spacious living room with beautiful stone built fireplace. There is a dual aspect kitchen/breakfast room with door to the courtyard, a separate door to the family dining room and the opposite side gives access to a good size utility/boot room. Furthermore, there is a large study/family room along with a cloakroom. Completing the ground floor accommodation, and slightly independent from the rest of the main living space, are two further rooms which were most recently used as additional bedrooms but were originally a drawing room, with ceiling height doors offering stunning views over the orchard through which to watch the abundance of local wildlife. A further reception/bedroom 5 plus a bathroom means that this side of the property could easily be used as annex living or to provide a separate space ideal for working from home. To the first floor is a landing with windows overlooking the grounds, three large double bedrooms and a second family bathroom. Further attributes include oil fired central heating uPVC double glazing. Externally This unique property is approached via a twin driveway with one side leading to the outbuildings including garage block with carport, single garage and log store plus sizeable detached workshop both of which offer the opportunity for flexible use. The other gated driveway continues to the rear of the property into a courtyard with parking for multiple vehicles. The plot itself totals some 1.6 acres which is made up of grass areas, mature trees, grazing land/paddock, which is predominantly to the rear and two fishponds with pleasant seating area to the front. Beyond the tree-lined outer boundary and due to the vicinity of the neighbouring properties, The Old Coach House offers a real sense of semi-rural living whist still having good access to Purton Village. Position & Location Church End, a long established conservation area, lies slightly detached from the main village and consists of St Mary’s Church, which dates back to the 13th Century, and a small collection of similarly characteristic properties, along with the Manor House and Purton House. The area is within easy walking distance of local amenities including a thriving village pub, shops, veterinary surgery and both well regarded primary and secondary schools. There is also a local farm shop, library and sporting facilities including a cricket ground, football pitch and tennis courts. Purton village dates back as far as Saxon times and conveniently lies some 4 miles from the historic market town of Cricklade to the north and Royal Wootton Bassett to the south (3 miles), Swindon with its many amenities and main line train station are also within easy reach. Purton also offers excellent road links to both the M4, A419 and M5 beyond. N.B Please note, the pictures include an orchard which can be sold subject to separate negotiation/with an overage agreement.

Asking Price £825,000 Sold Subject to Contract
