Property SummaryA truly special opportunity to purchase this exceptional, handsome, Georgian house offering a substantial amount of flexible accommodation presented in an elegant style, coupled with stunning grounds totalling approximately 6 acres.
Chicklade House, an important Georgian, Grade II Listed Country House constructed in 1740 of locally sourced stone, with additional accommodation added some 100 years later.
During the 1970’s, the original Country House was significantly remodelled into three separate properties, with Chicklade House forming the principle part of the original home you see today.
Steeped in history, Chicklade House is set very well within its plot of approximately 6 acres and offers over 4000 sq. ft. of wonderful, attractive accommodation that is intelligently arranged over two floors.
With a welcoming Entrance Hall, a lovely Kitchen/Diner and several Reception rooms including a 24ft. Play Room on the ground floor, the living accommodation is truly exceptional.
Upstairs are five brilliantly sized Bedrooms, two Bathrooms and an impressive Drawing Room with views overlooking the front grounds.
In addition on the lower ground floor are two spacious cellars. The large attic is accessed from the second floor and could be transformed into further Bedroom accommodation if desired and subject to the relevant consents.
Externally, the grounds at Chicklade House are just as impressive and beautifully presented as the internal accommodation.
Approached by a meandering and sweeping gravel driveway with ample turning space at the front of the house, the approach to the house alone is very special.
Spanning approximately 6 acres, and as described by the Owner as ‘Magical Grounds’ include a flagged terrace area with colourful raised boarders, paddocks, amazing wild flower meadows, an abundance of meticulously cared for specimen trees, 70 year old ‘Playing Card’ topiary hedges and established formal lawns.
The current Owners have created an area at the top of the garden that is ideal for croquet, badminton and grass tennis, which could also be used for entertaining and garden parties. In addition is a converted stable block (which could easily be converted back) that provides generous garden storage.
In summary, these exceptional grounds can be enjoyed all year round and offer an outside space of peace, fun and tranquillity.
Chicklade is a pretty Wiltshire village and civil parish located on the edge of the Nadder Valley. The area has beautiful countryside walks and ideally situated for commuters either travelling east or west using the A303.
