The frontage of Bridge House has recently been refurbished adding a beautifully crafted stone bridge over the brook which runs adjacent to the house. Now vehicular access over the bridge leads to the gravelled parking area enclosed by wrought iron electric gates and laurel hedging. A handsome yew tree adds statement. A paved path leads round the side to a private inner courtyard and the main entrance to the house.
The front of the house is believed to date from the 1800s, Victorian additions were added and now the house has evolved over the years to become a comfortable and charming home. The entrance hall retains features such as an exposed stone wall and leads into the two front reception rooms; the family room is a cosy room with a low beamed ceiling, a large stone fireplace and wooden floor boards whilst the study or fifth bedroom is a light and airy room with two sash windows to the front. Situated in the middle of the house is the sitting room with a tall sloping ceiling, exposed stone wall, a ‘Jetmaster’ open fire and double doors to the terrace. An open arch leads to the kitchen which has bespoke hand made units under a deep wooden surface, a fitted dresser and a Rangemaster oven. The kitchen opens into the dining area; a lovely garden room with two walls of windows overlooking the terrace and garden. In summary, a practical family home with interconnecting rooms opening out to the garden, super for entertaining plus two separate rooms if one needs to escape.
Up on the first floor there are three double bedrooms and the family bathroom. The master suite is located on the top floor where the attic has been converted to become a spacious bedroom with a walk-in wardrobe and private bathroom.
To the rear of Bridge House is a spacious paved terrace lending itself for summer dining. A raised bed runs the length of the terrace, planted with a magnolia tree and shrubs. This continues into a wider border of mature shrubs including yew and bay. The length of the lawn is enclosed by this border and a vegetable garden on one side with a mature beech hedge on the other. At the far end there is a stone wall and some recently planted fruit trees. A cedar clad workshop provides valuable storage and has been fitted with electricity so could be transformed into a home office if required.
The village enjoys superb amenities including a primary school, two public houses, a village shop and a church. Adjacent to the house is The Courts Garden, a small garden owned by the National Trust whilst Great Chalfield Manor is just outside the village; two modest National Trust gems adding to the appeal of the village. Also within the village is the home to the prestigious West Wilts Equestrian Centre. The historic market town of Bradford on Avon is just three miles away and benefits from some fine artisan shops, a train station and a well regarded secondary school; St Lawrence School. In the private sector; Stonar has a unique equestrian centre of international repute. The World Heritage City of Bath is approximately ten miles away and offers a wealth of business, entertainment and cultural facilities.
