A splendid four bedroom detached family home in an idyllic village location.
The Paddocks is located just off a quiet country lane in the small hamlet of Tockenham, and boasts a stunning landscaped garden. There are magnificent rural views across adjoining farmland and the open downland of the north western escarpment of the Marlborough Downs. The
property is about 3 miles south of Royal Wootton Bassett and 5 miles from Junction 16 of the M4 motorway. Close by is a new sports complex with tennis courts, bowls, cricket and football. Swindon is about 6 miles to the north west with mainline service to Paddington (about 55 minutes). The market towns of Marlborough, Devizes, Calne and Chippenham are all within easy reach. The area is renowned for its excellent walking and riding with a myriad of footpaths and bridleways.
The Paddocks has deeds dating back to 1879 and has benefitted from a more recent extension. The house offers excellent proportions, with the kitchen/breakfast room fitted with bespoke units and maia work surfaces. There is a large
sitting room which opens into a dining room benefitting from a triple aspect and providing a generous living space. The dual aspect sitting room is both spacious and light and has a wood burner. There is a lovely dining room, as well as a
useful study and music room. Upstairs, the accommodation has been thoughtfully designed
to give three double bedrooms and a family bathroom on the first floor. On the top floor there is a master bedroom with an en suite. In all, the house feels particularly spacious and benefits from ample storage space throughout. Views of the
village and surrounding countryside can be seen from each of the bedrooms and it enjoys a particularly peaceful location.
The house is approached via a driveway with double gates to a garage with electronic doors. There is parking for several cars and a further gate leads through to the gardens. The property is set within generous grounds which have been
beautifully maintained by the current owner.
