7 bedroom property for sale

Guide price £1,500,000

A MAGNIFICENT RURAL PROPERTY set in 11 acres with a surprise around each corner. This is a MAGICAL PLACE, surrounded by trees in an ELEVATED LOCATION away from the hustle and bustle of life and full of interesting vistas.

Montecello Farm House has been a happy family home for many years, offering space and flexibility for visitors to come and go with its interesting mix of modern and contemporary architecture. The earlier part of the house is mid-Victorian with an old oak panelled drawing room with Bath stone open fireplace. The most recent addition about fifteen years ago offers a fabulous family kitchen and dining environment with good use made of quality materials including oak framing and limestone flooring with full height glass windows and doors opening to an elevated alfresco dining area.

On the first floor, the latest addition to the house is an excellent studio area opening to a balcony which could equally be perhaps a home cinema and this adjoins the guest bedroom with its en-suite shower. Within the main body of the house and in addition to the drawing room is a reception space, rather like a mini-library and this leads down to a large and very useful cellar. There is also a study, a snug with wood burner and utility room. The principal bedroom with large en-suite bathroom has a cosy comfortable feel with a further three bedrooms and family bathroom. A further staircase leads to the second floor attic bedrooms.

Externally can be found lawns, shrubs, trees and a profusion of plants in every direction with hidden parts including kitchen garden with greenhouse and sheds. There is a former lawn tennis court along with a small copse and the topography of the land is diverse within the 11 acres having some level paddock for grazing, contrasting with some steeper parts suitable for sheep. There are some former agricultural buildings amounting to over 4000sq ft providing excellent storage and workshop space. There are solar pv's on the roof generating several thousand pounds per annum of revenue in addition to free power complemented by an electric car charging point and a level concrete yard suitable for parking larger vehicles or open storage.

Close to the property is open countryside in abundance with footpath walks in all directions, with Devizes Market Place just five minutes away by car with the town catering for most everyday shopping and leisure needs.

Altogether this is a wonderful home offering the best of both worlds being a country dwelling with space and privacy yet easily connected to the wider world if required.
