Holly Lodge is situated in the charming and peaceful village of West Overton, with far reaching views over adjoining open countryside. West Overton is a small village in the Kennet Valley surrounded by downland, which is a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and is situated 3 miles from the Neolithic site of Avebury, a World Heritage Site. Marlborough is approximately 4 miles to the east offering a good range of shops, coffee bars and restaurants, a sports centre and primary and secondary schools including Marlborough College, St John's, St Mary's Calne and Pinewood School. Pewsey is approximately 6 miles away providing a fast rail link to London Paddington (1 hour). The M4 motorway is also within easy reach. Open countryside rises up on either side of the village providing ideal walking, riding and mountain biking and there is fly fishing available on the River Kennet and golf courses at Marlborough, Calne and Ogbourne St. George.

Holly Lodge is a beautifully presented and substantial period house, believed to date from the 17th Century. The house comprises individual and picturesque sarsen stone and brick elevations formed of two period properties and a barn, all converted into a single integrated dwelling. The spacious adjoining converted barn and car port complete this series of properties that are set around an impressive courtyard. The entire property is partly under reed and straw thatch, partly under tile and partly under slate roof. The house has been renovated to an exceptionally high standard, with an impressive extension to the rear, which has created a large custom fitted kitchen/breakfast room benefitting a AIMS electric AGA, as well as from having a vaulted ceiling. There is a boot room and further utility room to the rear of the property. The living room is equally imposing, with double height ceiling, as well as French doors leading out to the beautiful garden. The dining room is full of character with many period features, such as exposed brickwork and wooden beams and a wood burning stove. The drawing room comprises Burley wood burner stove, an oak beam mantel and a two window bench seats. A recent improvement is the successful reconfiguration of the first floor to provide Principle Bedroom and ensuite bathroom, guest bedroom and ensuite wet room and 2 additional bedrooms served by a beautifully appointed bathroom. There is an adjoining period barn which has been converted in a very appealing and separately accessed one bedroom annex, ideal as ancillary accommodation or as a holiday let/Air BNB. The current owners benefitted from multipal dwelling stamp duty tax relief whewn purchasing.

The house is located off a pretty village road and is set back behind a large gravelled courtyard, with views across the surrounding countryside. The stunning walled garden to the rear of the house has been immaculately landscaped and benefits from mature trees and well stocked flower beds.
