Property Summary

A rare opportunity to acquire a SUBSTANTIAL and HIGHLY INDIVIDUAL property, with its own SELF-CONTAINED ANNEX, EXTENDING TO SOME 3000sqft located in a small Hamlet in the heart of the beautiful Wiltshire countryside.

Offering a wealth of history and character, this vast property has had a number of former uses since the oldest part of the dwelling was originally built before 1860, adding to the overall feel of local heritage when you step inside. More recently, in the 1930’s, the larger part of the property was added and it stands currently as a sizeable family home having had a number of improvements in more recent years by the current owners.

The flexibility of this property is one of its greatest assets as it would lend itself to a number of different uses, particularly as the self-contained annex includes a living room with log burner and mini kitchen, bathroom and good size bedroom. Alternatively, the property could easily be used to live in whilst running a business on the premises (STPP).

On entrance to the main house, there is a utility/boot room with Belfast sink, cloakroom adjacent and space for laundry appliances. A snug/informal living room is across the hall and benefits from an inglenook fireplace with wood burner and dual aspect windows. The hallway then leads on to an inner lobby which gives access to the stairs to the first floor landing, kitchen and living/dining area. In the very heart of this home is the superb 30’ living/dining/family room. This grand room boasts an abundance of character features including exposed beams and original brickwork and makes a wonderful space for family living or entertaining given its size.

The current kitchen is to the rear of the property making the most of the uninterrupted views of the Wiltshire countryside. From the kitchen, an additional utility area leads towards the annex and could be reconfigured and/or extended to become part of current kitchen if desired. Completing the main house ground floor accommodation is another good size reception room, currently being used as a study.

To the first floor are four good size bedrooms. To the front are two large doubles, one with an ensuite shower room. There is then a further double and leading on from that is a recently replaced five piece bathroom with a large walk in rainfall shower, twin sinks and freestanding bath. Offset from the bathroom is an impressive 24’ x 15’ bedroom, formally two separate rooms, which could be split or reconfigured, again reflecting the versatility of this property.

Furthermore, the separate, self-contained annex has a cosy feel and could be used to generate an income. This space could also be used to run a business from as it has access to its own heating, water and parking.

Externally, the property sits towards the front of the plot with a large space behind, currently used for parking, but could easily be repurposed as a family garden making the best of the west facing views of farmland behind. Accessed via double five bar gates, the parking/garden area also offers an area of decking plus a log store.

The small hamlet of Greatfield is located c.2 miles North of the highly sought after market town of Royal Wootton Bassett. Swindon, with its vast range of shopping options, bars, restaurants, and leisure pursuits is also within easy reach. The mainline train station is some 5 miles away with regular, direct routes to London Paddington in under an hour. The property also benefits from easy access to junction 16 of the M4 making it conveniently located for all road and rail links.

All in all, a superb family home, which genuinely can only be appreciated by an internal inspection, representing a fantastic opportunity with yet further potential.
