This substantial and discrete family home has well-proportioned rooms, ample parking and a wonderful family garden, all within 100 yards of the Kennet & Avon towpath, with its much loved walking and boating. The house has origins back to the late 17th Century and with a wonderful 18th Century Georgian two-storey addition creating an interesting and historic family home. It displays many period features with high ceilings and superb light due to its many tall windows; elegant French doors with full length original working shutters in the family room being a perfect example of the period charm. The current owners have undertaken considerable work to rejuvenate and renovate the house, including all-new bathrooms, restored original timber flooring, updated electrics and plumbing, a professionally installed mesh Wi-Fi system throughout the house, fully refurbished cast-iron guttering and rainwater system, as well as the full restoration and specialist repair of all windows and doors, including working shutters in a number of rooms. The house has a wonderful layout with large open entertaining spaces including the family room and drawing room. The kitchen is a very sociable space situated in the oldest part of the house; it offers a range
of floor and wall units and has a superb island perfect for being used as a breakfast bar. The principal bedroom has also been remodelled, creating an impressive master suite, with dressing area and large en-suite bathroom. Four further double bedrooms are on offer, as well as two further bathrooms and a ground-floor home office/study; the ideal layout.
The setting and gardens are an intrinsic part of the charm of this property offering almost half acre of grounds. The house is very private, as it faces the garden and enjoys many access points for the family. Electric gates allow access to the double carport and gravelled driveway with ample parking for further cars, with the gardens stretching beyond. There is an EV charger in the carport and security lighting and cameras. The South-facing garden enjoys the sun throughout the day and has also been extensively remodelled by the current owners, creating significantly more lawn and recovering an original Georgian well and pathway.
There is a bespoke and multi-functional treehouse with bi-fold doors. The treehouse was designed and is maintained by leading Somerset designers, Squirrel, and includes lighting, electrics, Wi-Fi and heating, all controllable from either the main house or via smartphone apps. This is a great teenage den or home office. It enjoys an elevated view of the gardens.

The current owners have also secured full planning consent to both relocate the kitchen (with service runs already in place to avoid any disturbance to rest of house) and to make significant changes to the front property, including a low wall and cast-iron railings, a new gate and a new door canopy, should the next owners wish.
