About this property
**A BEAUTIFUL PERIOD HOME** 4 DOUBLE BEDROOMS** GENEROUS PRIVATE GARDENS** SCOPE TO EXTEND** NO ONWARD CHAIN**
Hunts Farm House is a handsome period home believed to have been built as the former 'dower house' for Cherhill Manor and where the mother would have moved to when her son took over the manor estate. The property retains a wealth of character features to include exposed ceiling beams, original fireplaces and a very good example of a chalk stone Inglenook fireplace traditional for this area of Wiltshire. The spacious layout comprises three reception rooms with both the snug and sitting room enjoying the benefit of inviting log burning stoves for long winter nights. The small fitted kitchen with wooden worktops and a coal fired AGA offers great potential to extend to the side or rear (subject to planning). Also on the ground floor there's a useful utility room with tessellated tiled flooring, an integrated fridge and washing machine and a downstairs shower room. On the first floor there are four good sized bedrooms, three featuring attractive fireplaces, and a modern family bathroom with a bath and shower. The property owns the large driveway from The Street which leads to a barn style double carport. The front lawn has a usable well, whilst to the side there are plum and apple trees, raspberry bushes, wisteria and honeysuckle as well as a flourishing grape vine. In addition there are coal and wood stores and a garden shed. The large lawned rear garden enjoys an excellent amount of privacy and runs down to the delightful brook below.
Points of particular interest are the fire mark on the wall above the front door, showing which fire service the house was originally insured with, and an original mounting block made from local sarsen stone sits on the front lawn near the gate.
'Hunts Farm House' is situated in the heart of the village of Cherhill. The village is nestled on the edge of the Cherhill & Calstone Downs, a 128 hectare biological site of special scientific interest. The historic downs include an iron age fort, Victorian folly chalk white horse and a monument. Cherhill is a highly popular village offering a school, a public house and a church. The village has a thriving community with a number of local clubs and groups. The Calstone Downs offer excellent walking and riding. It is close to a number of historic sites including Avebury and Silbury Hill. A more comprehensive range of amenities can be found in the towns of Marlborough (c. 10 miles), Devizes (c 6 miles) and Calne (c. 3 miles). Also within easy reach is the market town of Chippenham which has a mainline railway station (London Paddington) and excellent access to the motorway at Junction 17 and 14.
