Castle Combe is considered one of the prettiest villages in England. Often appearing as a backdrop for film and television, the harmonious mixture of Cotswold cottages and houses make this unspoilt village a desirable and special place.
The village offers two public houses, village hall and The Manor House hotel and restaurant enjoying acclaim for its fine dining.
The Manor House Golf Club is highly regarded and there are many footpaths, bridleways and sporting opportunities available locally. The nearby town of Chippenham offers mainline rail access to London (Paddington) as well as Junction 17 of the M4 motorway.
The Georgian city of Bath and regional centre of Bristol are to the west.
This attractive older style home was purchased by the present owner in 1997 and embarked on creating a superb home to suit exacting standards. Over the years the home has been extended and improved to the highest degree and has flexible accommodation arranged over two floors. It has been used for Airbnb to very successful levels with the ability for the owner to still utilise its accommodation. Upon entering the property with the original refurbished front door, you sense the quality and blended style of old and new. This was once the local post office and there is attention to retain as many original features as possible. There is a quaint sitting room and further living room which has its own staircase to a first floor bedroom/study. The spacious and inviting kitchen/dining room benefits from a Zip instant hot water tap, Aga and Smeg Range cooker. There is a full length glass wall which overlooks the delightful well planned gardens. This leads to a ground floor shower room and utility room.
The first floor has three further bedrooms and a family bathroom. The detached annexe sits in the south west corner of the garden and is totally self contained. There are two bedrooms, exposed galleried landing to join both rooms and on the ground floor is an open plan living/ kitchen/dining space. The property is superbly finished and equipped with CCTV, in-built sound system, electric awning with integral lights and patio heaters, top level double glazing and underfloor heating just to name a few.
The house has a large parking area. To the front there is a walled boundary with pseudo grass to both sides of the path. To the rear there is a good sized enclosed private garden with a mixture of natural stone walling and trees. There is a large lawn area with borders, shrubs, a variety of specimen trees and a large sun terrace with awning. There is a sun house which has been used as a gym and can be suited to a variety of uses.
There is planning permission approved for a fifth bedroom with en suite. Plans are available to view upon request.
