Retaining a wealth of character and charm (including your very own bell tower) and approximately 3330 sqft of accommodation, this stunning former coach house and stabling is a must view. Dating back in part to 1873 and once part of the impressive Neo-Gothic Blount's Court House, this unique home is beautifully presented throughout and offers a flexible layout that could accommodate an annexe. A large reception hall with feature stained glass window opens off to a 34ft dual aspect sitting room with an inviting log burning stove, a study/family room, a 25ft vaulted kitchen/dining room, utility and cloakroom. An inner hall branches off to the Master bedroom suite with a very generous double bedroom and modern shower room. On the first floor there are four further double bedrooms some with custom made wardrobes, with an en suite shower room to the guest bedroom and a contemporary bathroom with a spa bath. Outside double gates open on to a cobbled yard with ample parking and the sizeable garage. A wonderfully private south facing garden has far-reaching views across the valley below.

Directions

Leave Devizes on the A360 Potterne Road and continue south in the Salisbury direction. Proceed through the village of Potterne and past the Church. Blounts Court is then the last turning on the left as you leave the village. Continue up the hill and take the second turning on the left which leads up to the property.

Situation

The village of Potterne has a thriving community and provides an excellent primary school, a popular public house, church, an active village hall and a very useful newsagents/village shop. The historic market town of Devizes is approximately two miles to the north offering a more comprehensive range of shopping and leisure facilities and a thriving weekly market. The major centres of Bath, Chippenham, Salisbury, Swindon and Marlborough are all within a 25 mile radius. Private local schools in the locality include Dauntsey's School (5 minute's drive), Marlborough College and St Mary's Calne. Junction 17 of the M4 motorway lies about 17 miles to the north with the M3 motorway via the A303 to the south. Mainline railway services to London Paddington are available in Pewsey, Chippenham and Westbury, and also from Andover to Waterloo.
