Standing in an idyllic position, set back from the lane and with the most spectacular views is this handsome and enchanting Victorian house which offers a wealth of features with later additions which further enhance the property. Built with stone from a local quarry and believed to date back to the mid-1800s, this fine house has been remodelled to take full advantage of the stunning rural views. Behind the main front door lies an array of accommodation which offers a versatile nature and with planning still currently in place to develop the house further. Tall ceilings and large arched window openings bring this property to life.

The ground floor offers five reception rooms with the kitchen being open plan to the breakfast/family room with floor to ceiling windows overlooking the courtyard. The single storey extension is a fun room with hidden study, large wood burner and tri-folding doors which fold back to connect the indoors with the outside. The first floor benefits from four bedrooms and a family bathroom all of which enjoy lovely views.


The property is set in the pretty rural hamlet of Spirthill and has views onto open countryside. The surrounding countryside provides a wide range of sporting and leisure opportunities. The local market towns of Chippenham, Malmesbury and Calne provide a wide range of services and amenities. Rail services to London Paddington are from Chippenham (75 mins) and the M4 is accessed by either Junctions 16 or 17 to London, Bristol and the West Country.


Positioned on the side of the hill overlooking countryside and back from the lane, Ivy House enjoys views all around. The house is approached via an in, out drive which is flanked by lawn and a back drive which leads to the rear of the property and paddocks. The front garden is mainly laid to lawn with mature trees and shrubs along with neat hedgerows and unfussy borders. The gardens continue around the western side of the property where a paved sun terrace beneath a substantial veranda takes full advantage of the unspoilt outlook. This amazing space is an extension to the main house as a wood burner ensures that it can be used all year round. A rotating summer house has been cleverly designed to relax in and absorb the surroundings.

The land slopes down and across the back where it joins a coppice which runs along the top boundary and is neatly fenced and extends to about 7.5 acres in total. Furthermore there is an array of outbuildings providing scope to convert into additional accommodation and planning permission is already in place to develop the current five bay open barn style garaging. All these factors combined with the useful one bedroom annexe make this a very exciting proposition!
