Property Description

An outstanding five-bedroom bungalow sitting comfortably within grounds of just over half an acre. This is a real hidden gem tucked away down a no through lane and surrounded by open countryside.

Orchard Gate has been owned by the current vendor for 16 years, and whilst under this ownership numerous improvements have been made to create a contemporary, low maintenance home with a beautiful garden. Due to the layout and space, the house could very easily be used with an additional independent space for a dependent relative or as an annexe.

The front door leads into the open plan kitchen/family room with engineered oak floorboards and an excellent range of base and wall cabinets with a central island unit.  Integrated appliances comprise a fridge/freezer, dishwasher and electric Rangemaster range cooker.  This well-proportioned room has plenty of space for a dining table and sofas making it a fantastic sociable room with French doors leading out to a patio terrace with a pergola at the rear. Beside the kitchen is a utility room with space and plumbing for a washing machine and tumble dryer, plus a door leading out to the rear garden. The formal sitting room is adjacent to the family room and is filled with natural light thanks to its triple aspect which offers a panoramic outlook across the garden. A focal point of the room is the contemporary wood burning stove with a slate hearth.

The bedrooms are all accessed from an inner hallway that is separate to the living areas. The master suite situated at the far end of the corridor is a generously proportioned room that is accompanied by a luxurious en-suite shower room, which is tiled throughout and comprises a double walk-in shower. There is a further reception room adjacent to the master bedroom which is currently used as a work space, but if desired this end of the house could be converted to create an annexe to be used for guests, dependent relatives or to generate income as Airbnb accommodation. There are four further double bedrooms, all with built in wardrobes, and a study accessed from the inner hallway as well as the family bathroom and an additional shower room. The family bathroom has been finished in tongue and groove panelling and comprises a white suite with a bath and separate shower, plus a heated towel radiator and a built-in cupboard.

Externally, the property is approached though a five-bar gate onto a block paved driveway with plenty of parking for numerous vehicles. Adjoining the house is a car port and to the other side of the driveway there is a detached double garage with two up and over doors, power and lighting. An oak framed studio sits in one corner of the garden and there is a further home office, both with power and lighting, as well as a summer house that is discreetly tucked into the corner of the rear garden. The front and rear gardens are divided by a mature beech hedge and the whole plot enjoys a southerly aspect with the rear garden sweeping around the property. The patio terrace is accessible from both the sitting room and the family area of the kitchen making the perfect spot to extend the accommodation during the warmer months and admire the view across the garden. The majority of the garden is laid to lawn with a collection of specimen trees and planted flower and shrub borders.

We understand the property is connect to mains water, electricity and drainage.  Oil fired central heating. Council Tax Band G (Wiltshire Council).
