A stunning period village house with fabulous contemporary interiors

The White House forms one half of the former Vicarage of Little Bedwyn. Built in 1756, in the late 1950’s it was divided into two at which time the front half, with its fine Georgian facade facing the canal, became known as The White House. The property is now a stunning four bedroom period house of approximately 2,500 sq ft arranged over three floors. The property has been completely renovated by the current owners creating a fantastic contemporary house with a quirky vibe, whilst still retaining the character of the building. The style and layout offer excellent reception space, very much in keeping with today's modern lifestyle, and ideal for family living and entertaining. The rooms are well proportioned with high ceilings and large sash windows, and the wooden floors and underfloor heating create a contemporary and spacious feel. The kitchen/living area is a fabulous room with a well fitted kitchen at one end with a range of bespoke cabinets, an Aga and a pantry, as well as a central island and a separate breakfast area. There is a wonderful, generous sized living area with a log burner, which leads through to the oak-framed dining room/garden room. All the rooms emanate from the central reception hall which is a versatile space and could be used as an additional snug/sitting room/study. This leads through to the stunning drawing room with a fabulous vaulted ceiling, open fireplace and french doors to the garden. On the first floor there are three double bedrooms, all beautifully presented and all with en-suite bath/shower rooms and sash windows. A secondary staircase leads up to the top floor where there is a fantastic open-plan bedroom and bathroom imaginatively created from the loft space, with a further storage area that could be used as a dressing room or single bedroom.

The garden lies mainly to the front of the house, and there is a large area of lawn surrounded by an old brick wall, flower borders and separate terrace areas, giving a courtyard feel. A gate from the garden leads directly out to the towpath alongside the Kennet and Avon Canal providing wonderful walks and cycling paths direct from the property. The house is approached from the lane through smart electric wooden gates across a gravel driveway and there is a double carport and parking area. The neighbouring property has a right of way across the drive.

The property is located in the middle of the charming village of Little Bedwyn, surrounded by rolling countryside offering fabulous walking and riding opportunities, and beside the beautiful Kennet and Avon Canal. Great Bedwyn is just over a mile away and offers a fantastic range of local amenities including a village shop/post office, doctor’s surgery, tennis club and gastro-pub, as well as a direct train service into London Paddington. Hungerford, Marlborough and Newbury provide an extensive range of shops and amenities including several supermarkets, restaurants, pubs and leisure facilities, catering for most everyday needs. There is a wide choice of schools in the area, including Stepping Stones Nursery, Great Bedwyn primary school, St Francis Pewsey, Pinewood, St Mary's Calne, St John's Marlborough and Marlborough College.

Directions

From Newbury follow the A4 towards Marlborough, and after passing through Hungerford continue forapproximately 3 miles, and just before reaching Froxfield, take the left turn signposted to Little Bedwyn. Follow this road for approximately 1.5 miles until you reach Little Bedwyn, continue into the village and as the road bends sharply round to the left, turn right down the 'No Through Road'. The entrance to the White House will be found after a short distance on the left hand side.
