The hamlet of Beckhampton is located to the south of Avebury and is most famously known for its horse riding and picturesque open countryside known as The Gallops. Nearby Avebury is designated as a World Heritage Site with its famous stone circle, Silbury Hill and The Sanctuary. It is a thriving village community with local amenities including post office/shop, village hall, primary school and public house. It is surrounded by rolling downland within the North Wessex Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The market town of Marlborough provides shopping and educational facilities and the village of Beckhampton is within the catchment area of the popular St John’s School in Marlborough. The M4 at junction 15 is about 11 miles away and Swindon has a mainline station with rail services to London Paddington (about 1 hour).

DESCRIPTION
Silbury House is part of an impressive Georgian House dating back to the late 18th Century which has been divided up and completely refurbished to a particularly high standard is 1989. Silbury House is one of three houses and five barns forming part of the courtyard development. It is constructed of painted stone elevations under a slate roof relieved by sash hung windows. The accommodation is arranged over two floors and retains many features consistent with the property’s original period, including high ceilings and sash windows throughout. The large reception rooms enjoy a delightful south westerly aspect. The Kitchen/Breakfast room is particularly attractive with a Smallbone of Devizes kitchen. The property also benefits from having a newly fitted energy efficient boiler (installed two years ago). All the bedrooms on the first floor are elegantly presented and decorated neutrally giving a light and airy feel. All the bathrooms are well appointed with top of the range sanitary ware. There is a large enclosed south westerly rear garden, a double garage with potential to be converted into a home office and there is also a workshop.

OUTSIDE
The house is approached via the private drive approximately 350’ in length, lined with mature laurel hedging on one side and the gardens to the main house to the other side. This leads to the walled parking area and the double garage with up and over doors with power and lighting. There is a workshop, which could be used as a home office. A path leads through an archway to the rear garden which is mainly laid to lawn with shrubs and borders and is fully enclosed by stone walling. The front garden is enclosed by 5ft stone walling with paved path flanked by manicured lawns with specimen trees.

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.
