DESCRIPTION The Old Police House is a very attractive detached period home discreetly set in the very heart of Brinkworth just a short walk from the pub and primary school. With a pretty double fronted Cotswold stone elevation under a slate roof, the property was formerly home to the village police constable with today's study forming the office. In recent years, the current owners have made improvements to the property including a thoughtful extension at the rear taking full advantage of the countryside views.
On the ground floor, there is a spacious dual-aspect living room with a gas fireplace and double doors opening to the garden. Across the entrance hall, there is a further reception room also featuring a fireplace. The extended kitchen is open plan to a breakfast area which has uninterrupted views over the garden and adjoining field. The kitchen is well fitted with timber units, granite work surfaces and a large Aga complete with a gas hob. To the side, there is the front study and a separate utility and WC. On the first floor, there are four bedrooms. The master bedroom is arranged to the front with ample fitted wardrobes and an en-suite shower room. The family bathroom is fitted with a separate shower and jacuzzi bath. On the top floor, there is a further double bedroom with adjoining shower room. There is an additional room benefiting from storage which could be utilised as a further bedroom or hobby rooms as required. Off the landing there is a further shower room.
The Old Police House is set behind high hedging screening the road and five-bar electric timber gates. There is gravelled parking for numerous vehicles in addition to a detached garage. The vibrant garden is arranged at the rear backing directly onto open countryside. The garden has been extended in recent times and is laid with a lawn, large patio terrace and well-stocked borders.
Brinkworth is reputed to be the 'longest village in England' and is located between Malmesbury and Royal Wootton Basset. The village has an excellent primary school and public house as well as parish church and village hall. The Three Crowns Pub conveniently runs a little shop selling essentials. A village market happens every two weeks, and the local dairy delivers milk on a weekly basis along with its cheese, cream and other produce it sells. A strong community spirit provides many village events activities throughout the year whilst Malmesbury and Royal Wootton Bassett provide a wide range of facilities, schools and recreational facilities.
Junction 16 of the M4 is very convenient being only 6 miles away whilst there is easy commuter access to Bath, Bristol, Swindon and Cirencester. There are regular mainline services from Swindon, Kemble and Chippenham to London Paddington taking just over 60 minutes.
