An elegant Grade II Listed country house with annexe, stabling and outbuildings
With c1840 red brick elevations and an imposing stone, central portal, Townsend Farmhouse is a handsome period home which features a timber-framed rear wing believed to date to the 17th century. Appealing characteristics of note include sash and stained glass windows, decorative and vintage fireplaces with stone surrounds, and exposed beams and brickwork, with the versatile interior layout offering more than 4,200 sq. ft of accommodation, currently arranged to offer a main house and separate annexe.
Two separate stairways rise to the first floor rooms, which comprise six bedrooms - three at the front connecting to three at the rear - along with a family bathroom and a shower room. A lift allows for ease of access to the upper level.
This property has 2.97 acres of land.
A low brick wall, backed by neatly clipped evergreen hedging, fronts the lane with a timber five-bar gate giving access to a gravelled area at the front of the home and a second gate opening onto a driveway which leads to the garaging and the annexe. The garden offers a picture-perfect sanctuary with hedging, creating a sense of outdoor rooms to explore, flower beds filled with shrubs and perennial plants, specimen trees offering dappled shade and post-and-rail fencing at the boundary affording views across to the grounds and landscape beyond. Paved and gravelled terracing adjoins the house with access from the garden room offering opportunities for outdoor dining and relaxation whilst enjoying the sunny south-westerly aspect. Additional outbuildings include a stable block with 3 stalls and a large barn.
Poulshot is a sought-after setting with an archetypal village green and a popular public house, The Raven. Amenities on offer include a parish church, village hall hosting clubs and groups, a pre-school/nursery and a Farm Shop. The surrounding countryside is a haven for walking and nature-enthusiasts, with the Kennet & Avon canal easily accessible for waterside walks and boating.
The historic market town of Devizes is located close by and offers a variety of shops and supermarkets, a leisure centre, cinema, theatre and thriving weekly market. The major centres of Bath, Salisbury, Swindon, Marlborough and Chippenham are all within a 30 mile radius and there are good road links to London and The West Country via the M4/A303.??Main line rail services are available from Chippenham, Pewsey and Westbury. Well-regarded schooling in the vicinity includes Dauntsey's School, Downe House, St Gabriels School and Marlborough College.
