DESCRIPTION

Woodlands is a superb family home with generous accommodation and beautiful gardens. The property dates from the 1960’s and, typical of the architecture of the time, has spacious open rooms, large light windows, garage parking and plenty of practical storage space throughout. There is a welcoming ground floor entrance hall that is flooded with light from the skylight above the open wooden stairs. The living room is dual aspect and to the rear leads into a sunny rear porch with access to the gardens. There is a snug/lounge and sun room that link through to the spacious kitchen/dining room. The kitchen is fitted with integrated appliances and a granite topped central island unit that gives extra worktop space and a degree of separation from the dining space. There is a good sized study that could also be used as a sixth bedroom, and two further bedrooms, one of which has dual shower room and bathroom en-suite, as well as an additional family shower room. Upstairs can be found three further bedrooms. The master bedroom has a wide balcony with the most outstanding views over the gardens and valley beyond. There is also ample storage space accessed from the landing and from bedroom five, which would allow you to extend the bedroom space, create a walk-in wardrobe, or simply use for storage should one desire.

There is a double garage, and plenty of driveway parking, with extra space to the side of the house should one require more. The large level front and rear gardens are beautifully cared for and consist of manicured lawns with flowering beds and borders. There is a pergola to sit under as well as a summerhouse, greenhouse and shed. To the immediate rear of the property leading from the kitchen is a raised terrace which provides a sunny place to sit and enjoy the wildlife.

SITUATION

Limpley Stoke is a pretty historic hamlet close to the picturesque villages of Winsley, Turleigh, and Freshford. There is a hotel and a local pub (The Hop Pole). The nearby town of Bradford on Avon is situated approximately 3 miles to the west and offers many amenities to include the railway station providing access to the cities of Bath, Bristol and London. The World Heritage City of Bath is within easy reach and provides a full range of local and national stores, excellent restaurants, schools, universities and cultural attractions to include The Theatre Royal and Thermae Spa. The mainline railway station provides direct access to Bristol and London Paddington. The Sustrans Two Tunnels Cycleway from nearby Midford takes you traffic free to the center of Bath and even on to Bristol if you have the stamina. The Westbury White Horse is visible from afar and is a famous local landmark. Local records suggest that the horse was originally cut in the late 1600s, probably to commemorate the supposed Battle of Ethandun, thought to have taken place at Bratton Camp in AD 878.

Schools within easy reach are highly regarded in both the public and private sector, the nearest primary school being Freshford Primary School. Other excellent schools include St. Lawrence in Bradford on Avon, Ralph Allen School, Beechencliff, Monkton Combe, Prior Park, The Paragon, KingEdwards, Kingswood and The Royal High.

DIRECTIONS

From the A36, Warminster Road continue south until you reach the right turn onto Midford Lane. Take this turning, and continue along the lane, taking the right fork where you can see the right hand turning into Old Track and Stoke Mead. The property can then be found at the end of the cul-de-sac on the right.
