Gibb Road, Chippenham
This fantastic family home is located in picturesque south Cotswold countryside, approached down a long drive and across a large gravel driveway. Keepers Lodge sits in an idyllic position surrounded by gardens and paddocks which are simply beautiful; mostly laid to lawn, the garden is interspersed with a variety of trees, shrubs and well- established flower beds which are full of colour throughout the summer months. Historic woodland forms the majority of the boundary to the 18.97 (approx.) acre plot. Keepers Lodge benefits from the most spectacular views over its land and has a real sense of privacy.
Believed to date back to the 19th Century with later additions, Keepers Lodge has a warm and inviting feel, with generously proportioned rooms - ideally suited for a family and those who enjoy entertaining. The property has been sympathetically modernised over the years to provide wonderful open living space yet retaining much of the character and charm. One of the many highlights includes a showstopping 29 ft kitchen/breakfast room which in turn has wonderful views over the gardens and surrounding paddocks. The equestrian facilities include a stable yard consisting of three stables, tack room, store and a fibre sand manege.
Ancillary accommodation includes a self-contained cottage comprising two bedrooms, both with en suite shower rooms and a well-appointed kitchen.
A Cotswold stone store provides ample storage space and a separate pavilion would make the most superb office or studio.
