This is a very desirable newly converted barn, forming an excellent living space with an open plan feel, perfect for entertaining and having good proportioned accommodation across two floors. The wood clad exterior with a pitched clay tile roof gives a modern rural appearance, whilst the luxurious recent interior fit out is state of the art, with thick oak doors, top of the range aluminium windows, bi fold doors and underfloor heating.
Internally, of particular note is the large open plan kitchen/dining area with a modern fitted kitchen with granite work surfaces, limestone flag floors and bi-fold doors opening onto the side patio area, creating an additional room to the house in finer weather. Off the hallway, is a spacious living room with a wood burning stove and engineered oak floors, and again with bi-fold doors opening onto the front patio. At the rear of the house is a versatile room, prepared as a fourth bedroom, having a neighbouring shower room, however, could easily be used as a further reception room, home office if needed. Lastly, a utility, with access into the garden has good views and sits off the dining area.
A wide oak staircase leads to the first floor landing. At one side is the superb master bedroom, with a vaulted ceiling and large windows taking in the rural views and opening into a dressing room and a lovely bath/shower room.
At the far side of the landing are two further bedrooms and a bathroom.
A paved patio surrounds the property, from which the main rooms flow onto, leading onto the gravel parking area and long driveway enclosed at the end by a five bar gate. To one side of the drive, accessed by a separate gate, is an enclosed paddock.

The house is situated on the outskirts of both the historic national trust village of Lacock and the market town of Melksham, which offer good day-to-day shopping, pubs, toy shop and garden centres, whilst the beautiful Georgian city of Bath with its excellent restaurants, recreational and cultural facilities is about 14 miles away. Bristol and Swindon are within easy access and Chippenham train station has a regular service into London Paddington (approximately 75 minutes). Motorway access to the M4 is either at junction 16 or 17. Sporting activities in the area include various renowned golf courses such as nearby Bowood House, and those with an interest in equestrian pursuits are well catered for. The house is very well placed for many excellent schools including St Mary’s and St Margaret’s Calne, Marlborough College, Stonar and Dauntseys, and the well renowned Bath day schools.

The next steps...

Before making an offer on a property you will want to consider your financial situation, your income and outgoings.

Will you finance the purchase of your next property from the sale of an existing property which can put you in a chain, arrange a mortgage through your bank or buy the property outright.
To help you finance your next property purchase, we have a long established relationship with an independent mortgage broker who can discuss your situation with you.

Remember that having a 'mortgage decision in principle' can make you a more attractive buyer when you make an offer on a property. Contact our mortgage advisers for free, no obligation and impartial advice.
Some advantages of a broker are:

  • They do all the legwork for you, working on your behalf with the lender
  • They compare wholesale mortgage rates from a large number of banks and lenders all at once
  • Wholesale interest rates can be lower than retail (bank branch) interest rates
  • You get more loan options because they work with numerous banks and lenders
  • Brokers can finance tricky deals because of their knowledge and various lending partners
  • Are typically easier to get in contact with, less bureaucratic.

However with your bank maybe able to:

  • Build off existing relationship (discounts if you have a checking/saving account)
  • You may already know the banker who will handle your mortgage
  • Perhaps more trustworthy, more accountable than a smaller shop
  • Lower interest rates in some cases
  • Ability to add mortgage to existing banking profile and make automatic payments from linked account.

When it comes to making an offer on a property a bit of negotiation is to be expected, however don't offer so little that you end up in a lengthy negotiation process, as you might lose the property altogether if someone else makes a higher bid.

If other offers have been made on a property we aren't legally able to tell you what they are, but we may indicate if they were close to the asking price.
