Property description

Winterbourne House has origins dating back to the late 19th century and has been sympathetically extended and completely renovated by the current owners during their occupation. Every room throughout the original house as well as the new and substantial extension has been beautifully finished and it is presented in opulent order throughout.
The owners fell in love with the position and the views over the substantial front and rear gardens as well as the accessibility to the surrounding countryside, towns and cities. The renovations
allowed them to create this bespoke family house. The quality of the work is first seen in the exceptional galleried entrance hall which is open to the first floor and is complete with centrepiece
wood burner and provides a flavour of the generous proportions seen throughout the house. Family life centres around a large kitchen/breakfast room with conservatory and this forms the heart of the home. The kitchen is fitted with a range of bespoke solid wood units in a country style with an exceptional breakfast area, granite worktops, integrated appliances and 4 oven aga.
There is a feature well which the owners discovered and lit and it now makes a lovely talking point. The space is generous enough to house breakfast room tables and chairs as well as
sofas and it enjoys a spectacular view and access to the rear patio and gardens beyond. It is also an excellent house for entertaining with a large dining room, formal drawing room as well as more intimate space for the family in the sitting room,
treatment room and study. There is also a separate entrance for caterers in the utility room.
The leisure suite formed part of the renovations and is predominantly laid out over two floors to one side of the house.
There is a superb swimming pool on the ground level which has two sets of bi-folding doors allowing access to the outside as well as steam room and changing facilities. Above here is the
games room offering a myriad of opportunities. The cellars are currently used as a home gymnasium, walk in wine cellar and
plant room.
Winding the spindled staircase to the first floor galleried landing you will find the master suite, three bedrooms and two further bathrooms. The opulent master suite can be independently
accessed by the secondary staircase and incorporates a 25 foot master bedroom, generous fully fitted dressing room and luxury en suite bathroom. The second floor has two further
bedrooms and a family bathroom making an ideal area for teenagers. All of the principle rooms are fitted with a surround sound system and the drawing room has a fully integrated ceiling mounted cinema system. There are a number of open fires as well as wood burning stoves and the property is fully double glazed with a high tech security system throughout.

Situation
Berwick Bassett is ideally situated between Marlborough, Chippenham and Swindon. There are a range of quality schools in the surrounding areas with many families enjoying the use of St. Mary's School in Calne, Dauncey's or Marlborough College. It sits on the edge of the Marlborough Downs and it in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. There are a myriad of bridleways, footpaths and outdoor pursuits in the surrounding
countryside. Marlborough, with its historic wide high street offers weekly markets, Waitrose and an array of independent shops and boutiques. For the commuter the M4 Junction 16 is approximately 8 miles away and provides road links to London
and the West Country. High speed rail links can be found at Swindon, commuting you to London Paddington in 58 minutes.

Outside
The attention to detail inside the property is also mirrored on the outside and a great deal of energy and expense has been put into landscaping the grounds. The sweeping Cotswold chipped stone driveway leads to a large pair of electrically operated gates with security system backing and this in turn leads to a large parking area and garaging.
To the rear the level plot continues with a number of large specimen trees surrounding the property and giving great year round interest. Taking centre stage is a large lake and as the whole house and a number of the larger trees have been floodlit
the house looks just as impressive at night as it does in the day. The remainder of the grounds are largely laid to grass with an independently accessed front paddock as well as large lawned
areas and some herbaceous beds. Parking is provided for with the garage complex, this is a double garage with room above and the room has planning permission to convert into ancillary
accommodation ideal for rental income, housing of staff or dependent relatives. In total the gardens and grounds extend to approximately 5.5 acres.
