Westfield House is an attractive, turn of the century, stone built country home benefiting from stylishly appointed and presented interiors arranged over two floors. The home is situated in glorious countryside just 3 miles from picturesque Bradford on Avon and neighbouring the National Trust grounds of Great Chalfield Manor.
The approach to the home is impressive, as part of the journey is along the tree-lined carriageway to the manor, which then turns to a country lane across fields to the home. A spacious, light, galleried entrance hall leads through to the inner hallway. At one end of the hall lies a large sitting room with feature fireplace, oak floors and access to the garden room with views over the gardens and paddock. To the other end of the hall is the large kitchen/breakfast room with hand built Mark Wilkinson kitchen, island unit, feature wood burner and access out to the gardens. Also on the ground floor is a cosy dining room and cloak room.
To the first floor is the master bedroom with quality en suite bathroom and walk-in dressing room, 3 further bedrooms and a family bathroom. Additionally, there is a first floor studio/home office above the double garage accessed via attractive external timber stairs. This area can be used as either an independent home office or self-contained studio, ideal for home working, visiting guests or a holiday let. There are great views from the studio via tall windows that open onto a Juliet balcony overlooking the gardens.
The property is approached via a country lane from the Great Chalfield end of the hamlet, taking you past the exquisite Great Chalfield Manor and down its impressive stately driveway. At the home there are tall wooden electric gates leading into a driveway and parking area, where there is access to the double garage with a separate large utility with fitted appliances, ample storage and large work surfaces.
The gardens and ground amount to about 2.93 acres in total and are arranged predominantly to lawn and paddock. There are a number of specimen trees and shrubs, which have been planted to offer a degree of privacy and break up the grounds to provide different areas. There is also a large terrace, which is ideal for entertaining and enjoying views of the gardens.
Currently the paddock is open to the formal gardens but this could be easily enclosed with post and rail fencing. There is also a separate access to the paddock via a five-bar gate leading onto the lane.
Westfield House is located off a country lane directly off the main driveway for Great Chalfield Manor, which is clearly labelled via the brown National Trust signs. Approach the property via Combe Lane which runs between the villages of South Wraxall and Broughton Gifford. Take the turning to Great Chalfield Manor sign posted Great Chalfield. Follow the lane down and over the little bridge heading towards the manor. At the end of the drive turn right and proceed along the lane, and follow out across the fields. The house is the first property on your left hand side.
