Lane House is a pretty Grade II Listed village home constructed of random stone under a Cotswold stone tile roof with mullion windows. Extended and evolved from two dwellings this wonderful long house is situated just off The Green, along a pretty no-through lane.
On entering this charming house, the impressive reception hall doubles up as a cosy snug room benefitting from a stone fireplace and mullion windows, a lovely entrance to this stylish village home. Oak floor boards run the length of the house giving a continuous flow from room to room. The spacious sitting room is a great reception room with three different designs of windows to the front illustrating how this Grade II Listed home has evolved over the centuries. An open fire creates a focal point in this contemporary styled room. The light and airy kitchen has a dual aspect, again with mullion and leaded windows overlooking the lane and the garden. Sleek white units have been well designed under a polished composite work surface with plenty of room for a breakfast table. The conservatory and utility room are now in need of attention and lapsed plans were drawn up to create a super garden room with doors opening out to the attractive garden.
All four bedrooms on the first floor have pleasant aspects to the lane in front. At each end of the landing is a bathroom, one designed with classic lime stone tiles, the other with a sleek silver grey finish. All the bedrooms are double; one with a pretty view of the garden as well as to the front. The three further bedrooms all have built-in wardrobes providing great storage, not always easy to find in a period cottage.
Biddestone is a beautiful village with a church, two pubs, pretty Cotswold stone cottages and a duck pond. The village is located approximately 10 miles from Bath and the market town of Corsham is just two miles away and has a good variety of amenities with a bustling High Street and the historic Corsham Court, a beautiful stately home once famous for its art scene. With well-regarded schools, Corsham is in every sense, a quality market town.
A dining terrace is accessed from the double doors of the conservatory and edged by stone walling and deep flower beds. The level lawn is bordered by flower beds and mature shrubs. Herbaceous beds flank the pretty pond adding a wonderful spot to sit out. A vegetable garden including a herb garden, vegetable beds and fruit trees is also a lovely area of the garden and has a village view along the lane. Discreetly hidden in the corner of the garden is a stone built bothy. This could be refurbished to create a home office/artist studio. Of further note is the rear access to the double garage and parking space, a rare find in the heart of the village.
