Interesting property with great views and a largely unspoilt interior – this 1960s five-bedroomed house in Kingsdown, Corsham, Wiltshire.
It was apparently architect designed in 1961, with some extending in the 1970s. But we love the interior, very much of the original era, with the exposed stone walls, wooden ceiling, fitted furniture and period light fittings. It’s also been designed with the views in mind, sat high up and offering great views of the Box Valley. If you want some open country, it’s here in abundance.
Anyway, back to the house. The forecourt, on which three cars can be parked, leads to the covered loggia entrance and a small workshop, beside the garage. Enter the house (and the upper level) and you’ll find the entrance hall, with oak strip flooring and parana pine ceiling, the lounge with ‘panoramic picture window’ and an archway that leads to the adjoining dining room, also overlooking the valley, along with the kitchen with breakfast bar and seating. There’s also a cloakroom, study/office and bedroom number five on that level.
The lower level is accessed via an open tread ‘paranoia’ pine staircase, with access to the other bedrooms, plus family bathroom. The master suite has access directly to terrace and garden, as well as an en-suite Aqualisa shower room with toilet. Externally, there’s a large decked area, plus gardens and rockery.
£440,000 is the asking price, although you’ll have to be quick, as an offer is already in.
