The Old House is a very attractive village home. A feast of period features served with much charm & character dating from 1640.
The main living space is the well-proportioned main reception room which takes in both lounge & dining room, 28’4” is good length! Here we find two fireplaces, window seats & beams; a lovely space. The kitchen breakfast room looks onto the pretty rear garden and has an adjoining utility room. The snug or study will serve as an occasional fourth bedroom – just add a sofa bed. On the first floor we find two bedrooms, one with a stone fireplace. The bathroom sports a claw foot roll-top bath, a proper tub! Upstairs again we have a good double bedroom with amazing beams & views to both front & rear, there is also a shower room making this a very separate suite of rooms if needed.
The garden is mostly lawned with well stuffed borders and two stone stores, presumably a former coal store & privy? Of enormous benefit is the large, detached garage & parking spaces. Please note that the adjoining Frogmore House has a right of way along the drive.
Favourably positioned on the Market Place The Old House is in the heart of this thriving & popular community. This sought-after village is superbly well situated for access to Bath, the M4 & more obviously the A4. We find enviable village amenities including an excellent primary school, village hall with library, convenience store, family butcher, church, pub, post office/store, curry house, doctor’s surgery & the excellent ”Rec” – an impressive open space resource with cricket, football & basketball pitches, bowling club, tennis courts & playground. The surrounding countryside & wooded hills are perfect for invigorating walks with dogs & children. Nearby Georgian Bath offers city centre shopping, entertainment, night life & rail links to London & Bristol. Corsham has good market town amenities & an attractive old high street.
