DESCRIPTION The handsome and spacious farmhouse has well-proportioned rooms with accommodation over three floors. There are a combination of sash and stone mullion windows with the principal rooms all enjoying a dual aspect. A range of outbuildings include a double garage, attractive period stone barns that could be suitable for conversion and a range of more modern agricultural buildings.
ACCOMMODATION An ancient wooden door sits under the entrance porch and leads into the entrance hall. There are stairs to the first floor and a door leads into the dining room. There is a sash window overlooking the front gardens with a further window to the side, stone built open fireplace and wooden floor. This leads into the sitting room with windows to the side and rear and red brick open fireplace. The lounge has a sash window overlooking the gardens and has a stone built open fireplace with period cupboard and exposed beam. The kitchen and breakfast room is light and welcoming with a traditional cream oil fired Aga. A range of wooden floor and wall cabinets are finished with a granite work surface and have a fitted electric oven, hob, extractor, fridge, freezer and dishwasher. A pantry complements the storage space to the kitchen. To the rear of the property is a useful series of rooms providing an office, boot room, utility, cloakroom and store. There are four good sized double rooms on the first floor with a family bathroom and separate cloakroom.
On the second floor there are two bedrooms and two attic rooms that could be converted into further bedroom space if required.
OUTSIDE The gardens are outstanding and very well maintained and are contained to the rear by a striking red brick wall overlooking open farmland. There are formal beds, shrubs and a productive soft fruit garden stocked with apple, pears and plum and an orchard. To the rear of the garage a garden room makes the very best of the views and gardens with a patio seating area. To the front of the house the driveway winds through a paddock and there is a floodlit tennis court. A two-storey stone barn currently houses an old stable and some storage but could, subject to consent, provide an annexe, office or workspace.
THE BUILDINGS A range of traditional and modern farm buildings situated to the rear which can be accessed separately to the house. A single storey stone-built barn sits on the edge of the pond and a further two storey stone barn is situated to the rear of the house. There are a range of steel portal framed agricultural buildings used to house cattle and fodder that could be upgraded and be suitable for workshops, storage or equestrian uses, subject to the necessary consent. Further details available if required.
THE LAND The house, gardens and buildings account for most of the plot size, but there are some paddocks that total about 3 acres. A further 5 acres are available.
AGENT'S NOTE A public footpath runs along part of the driveway and exits onto the adjoining farmland.
LOCATION Semington is a pretty village centered around the canal, that in recent years has benefitted from a bypass so there is no longer through traffic just local traffic to the houses and facilities which include a primary school, village hall, church, park for the children, post office (twice a week as a part of the village hall), pub and a number of other small businesses. The market towns of Devizes, Melksham and Trowbridge are all close by, with the cities of Bath & Salisbury also within easy reach. Private schools in the area are excellent with Stonar, Dauntsey's and St Mary's, Calne all in the area. Transport links are good with rail links to London, and the M4 at Bath and Chippenham. Equestrian facilities locally are well placed West Wilts Equestrian Centre, the local Pony Club being the Avon Vale, and Hunting with the Avon Vale and Beaufort Hunts. There are an abundance of leisure facilities and country pursuits in the area with countryside walks and cycle rides. Tourist attractions such as Bowood, Longleat, Chalfield Manor, Kennet and Avon canal with the beautiful villages of Lacock and Castle Combe, and the picturesque Cotswolds on the door step.
