Formerly a dairy farm on the edge of Westbury this spacious family home borders the Biss Brook and has an adjoining paddock of about 4.8 acres. The house has been well maintained over the years and has well-proportioned rooms with open countryside views to one side.
A long drive leads to a large parking area. A rear entrance hall has doors to the utility room and downstairs cloakroom. The kitchen/breakfast room overlooks the gardens and paddock and has a range of wall and floor cabinets with electric double oven and hob with extractor over. There is plumbing for a dishwasher and a solid fuel Rayburn is used for cooking and partial heating of the house. The dining room has a fireplace with red brick surround (capped off) and stone mullion windows overlooking the brook. The sitting room has French doors to the gardens with an exposed beam and fireplace with wooden surround. The front entrance hall has an under stairs cupboard and there is a further cloakroom.
On the first floor the master bedroom has a fireplace, window to the front and built in wardrobes. There are two further double bedrooms and two single rooms with a recently fitted bathroom with bath and separate shower and a further bathroom.
Attached to the house but accessed from the outside is a farm office that could be incorporated into the house. An attached period red brick outbuilding/barn could suit a variety of uses subject to the necessary planning consent.
The gardens are to the front and side of the property and are bordered by the brook to the front and post and rail fencing to the side. The gardens are laid to lawn and there are some established climbing roses and shrub beds.
A pedestrian bridge gives access over the Biss Brook to the farm yard, with several barns and a further paddock all available by separate negotiation.
