Property Description

An individual detached bungalow with three double bedrooms and a separate office, set within three and a half acres of beautiful grounds. With an array of useful outbuildings, parking, and further development potential on offer, there are also lovely views from this private position close to the centre of Corsham.

A rare find on the market, Meadowcroft is an established and well-proportioned detached bungalow that has seldom changed hands since construction in the 1930's. The property occupies a wonderful position within private grounds that measure a little over three and a half acres, with magnificent rural views available from almost every aspect of the property and gardens on offer.

Approached via a private gated driveway that is suitable for the parking of multiple large vehicles, this property has been lovingly improved upon by the current owners, and also exhibits further exciting potential for future development, inclusive of full planning permission for a two-storey extension (Planning Portal Reference Number: 20/10465/ful). It currently features a light and modern kitchen / dining room that benefits from a bright dual-aspect ratio and doors that lead onto a patio. With attractive natural slate flooring and high quality solid worktops, this kitchen has been thoughtfully configured to maximise storage space through the use of many soft-closing drawers and tall cupboard units, and also showcases an induction hob and three ovens. There is a sizeable separate utility room with generous in built storage cupboards, a water-softening unit, useful side access, and ample space, plumbing, and power for multiple appliances to be placed atop the natural slate flooring. This provides access to a handy W.C / cloakroom as well as the substantial modern conservatory currently used as a full-time home gym - an incredible place to exercise owing to the panoramic countryside views! At the other end of the property, a generously proportioned sitting room sports a working wood-burning stove. Finished in attractive neutral tones, this light dual-aspect space features built in shelving along the entirety of one of the walls. Also accessible from the spacious hallway on the ground floor are two double bedrooms and the impressive family bathroom. The first of the two bedrooms features a charming bay window and plenty of hanging space within the 'Sharps' fitted wardrobes. The well-appointed family bathroom has been fully tiled in marble. The modern conveniences within include electric underfloor heating, a 'spa bath', a large separate shower enclosure, and twin sinks with storage beneath - all finished in pleasant matching white tones.

The superb third bedroom forms the majority of the converted loft, and has been organised in such a way that it can comfortably support a secondary seating area and study area, in addition to the sleeping and changing area. There is an abundance of easily accessible and useable storage space tucked away within the eaves, as well as another 'Sharps' wardrobe that has been fitted along one of the walls. Furthermore, this sprawling bedroom also benefits from its own en suite shower room with another double-width shower enclosure and a matching white W.C and sink in situ. There is further storage that can be accessed by stepping through the other side of this en suite, where one can also find the inverter for the solar panels as well as the high pressure water system. The solar panels have been in situ since 2011 and are privately owned by our Vendors, generating a notable amount of electricity and also benefiting from approximately 13 years of the remaining grant.

Within this excellent and predominantly enclosed plot, there are an array of useful outbuildings which offer an exciting and varying level of potential, subject to any necessary consents. Conveniently situated towards the front of the plot is a fully insulated, well-connected, and secure home office that provides plenty of space for several individuals to comfortably work simultaneously within. Additionally, there is a greenhouse in situ for those who enjoy gardening, as well as ten raised planting beds (made with eco-treated wooden sleepers), and mature plum, apple, and cherry trees. The plethora of other useful outbuildings on site include the spacious double garage unit, a large workshop (complete with lighting, power, and workbenches) a piggery block (further to the four 'outdoor' piggery enclosures), large stable, housing for chickens, and an open fronted barn.

The property is situated approximately one mile away from the bustling High Street of Corsham, and can be accessed swiftly either via a relatively level scenic walk via country paths, or by private motor vehicle or public transport (the local bus picks up and drops off on Prospect). There is a range of other lovely walks and open green space nearby to enjoy, as well as playing fields and play areas for children. Corsham itself is a pretty and historic town of architectural significance located on the southern fringes of the Cotswolds, an area of outstanding natural beauty and some 8 miles North East of the fine Georgian City of Bath. The town, noted for its pretty High Street, has a wealth of beautiful and historic buildings dating from the 16th Century such as the Alms House and the historic Corsham Court, with its landscaped open parkland. The town caters for most day to day needs with a range of national and bespoke shops, coffee houses, boutiques, restaurants and a variety of public houses. There are very good Primary and Secondary schools and the new Corsham Leisure Centre. Communications are excellent; Bath, Bristol and Swindon are all within easy motoring distance and there are fast road links to London and the West Country via the M4 motorway (J17 and 18 approximately 15 - 20 minutes away). The quick main line rail services are available from either nearby Bath and/or Chippenham, offer a healthy variety of destinations to access directly. This property benefits from the use of the local buses, for which the nearest stop is located a matter of a few moments away.
