Whitley Brow is a substantial village house with Bath stone elevations and a part Cotswold Stone and Double Roman tiled roof. The property dates to the late 17th century and in 1865 was subject to considerable alteration and addition as the
datestone above the front door inscribes 1869. The property has a particularly well-balanced accommodation across two floors. Period features are in abundance to include the impressive carved oak staircase, open fireplaces with marble
surrounds, detailed plasterwork, stone mullion windows and sash windows. The central reception hall leads either side to large reception rooms with fireplaces and large bay windows overlooking the south facing front gardens. At the rear of the house is a lovely kitchen/breakfast room with fitted storage cabinets and an AGA. Doors lead to both the boot room and utility room, giving access to the rear patio garden.
The central hall leads past the superb carved oak staircase to the open through drawing room, again with a bay window and two open fireplaces, being over 33ft long. The first-floor landing leads to the principal bedroom at one end boasting grand proportions and leading to an en suite
bathroom and through to a large dressing room overlooking the rear garden. There are four further bedrooms and a family bathroom on this floor.

A gated tarmac driveway leads up to a large parking area in front of the house, leading on to a level lawn south facing front garden. A side gate leads through to the rear garden with a swimming pool and a large private patio, excellent for entertaining.

The property sits on the edge of this picturesque Wiltshire village, backing onto fields and the village being well catered for with a real sense of community spirit. It has a good range of local facilities which include an excellent primary school, the Pear Tree Inn pub, a church, village hall, golf course, and it is surrounded by beautiful countryside. The historic towns of Corsham, Melksham, Bradford on Avon and the Georgian
heritage city of Bath are all within a short drive. Whitley has excellent bus links with all the above towns making it a village which is still very accessible. Melksham has a train station 2.2
miles away and schooling locally is excellent.

Tenure: Freehold.
Services: All mains services are connected.
Viewing: Strictly by appointment with Carter Jonas.

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.
