A substantial and flexible 6 bedroom equestrian property in this popular Pewsey Vale village, with far reaching rural views, set in circa 6 acres
Bentley House is a well presented six bedroom detached house in the picturesque and well regarded village of Easton Royal. The village is set in an ‘Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty’ known as the Pewsey Vale. The local village amenities include a church, a village hall, pub and an excellent primary school with Academy status. The schools of St Francis, Dauntseys, St John’s and Marlborough College are also in easy reach. Within 3 miles is the larger village of Pewsey, with a broad variety of shops including a bank, post office, convenience stores and a mainline railway station. The area has convenient rail links: Pewsey to Paddington circa 55 minutes; Bedwyn to Paddington 1 hour 15 minutes and Andover to Waterloo 1 hour 15 minutes. The historic market town of Marlborough is circa 7 miles to the North and there is ready access by road to Swindon, Salisbury, Oxford and Bath. The Kennet and Avon canal is to the North and the surrounding countryside is comprised of a rich agricultural valley surrounded by rolling down land.
Bentley House is an extensive and adaptable modern house of circa 3300 sq ft, constructed in 1975 and with later additions and modifications. Constructed of red brick elevations with tile hung upper parts, all under a clay tiled roof, the property has fully double glazed windows, including two large bays. The ground floor comprises expansive accommodation, with entrance hall and cloakroom, two large reception rooms, two separate kitchen/breakfast rooms and two ensuite bedrooms. On the first floor is a glorious drawing room taking advantage of the views, which leads onto a large balcony. Also on the first floor are four additional bedrooms, one ensuite, and a family bathroom with bath and shower. Presented in neutral tones, Bentley House offers a welcoming family home in a most desirable location. It enjoys superb view to the rear across to Easton Clump and onward towards Salisbury Plain. The configuration of the house lends itself to a number of options for combined or separate living. The electrical supply and water supply to the extension on the eastern end benefit from being sufficiently independent to allow easy separation. The house, the adjoining first paddock and the kitchen garden all lie within the village planning envelope, adding scope for future development.
The stable yard, which is in sight of the house, comprises four loose boxes, a tack room, feed store and a carriage house, with an additional storage barn adjacent. The level paddocks have piped water, are well maintained, securely fenced, and accessible from the yard or from Harris Lane. There is a double garage (which has solar panels fitted). There is a large implement store attached to the garage and there are two additional stores and a greenhouse in the garden area. The expansive gardens are mainly laid to lawn bordered by herbaceous beds, mature shrubs and trees. There is a large productive kitchen garden with an established asparagus bed, fruit trees and currant bushes. There is ample parking to the front of the house and alongside the garage.
