Spookily-named The Ghost Train, there is nothing unnerving about this former public house turned impressive family home situated on the outskirts of the popular Wiltshire village of Purton.

Spookily-named The Ghost Train, there is nothing unnerving about this former public house turned impressive family home situated on the outskirts of the popular Wiltshire village of Purton.

Believed to originally have been built, along with the adjacent the buildings, in 1809 as a manor house and stables. In 1841 was turned in to The Railway Hotel, when the railway station was opened and then renamed The Ghost Train after the station was closed in the 1960s. The pub closed in 2008 and returned to a residential house in 2010. The train station and platform are still present but rented for storage (not business use), the railways still own and maintain.

This historic and attractive property has been beautifully reconfigured and refurbished to create a wonderful four bedroom family home with many attractive features and the potential to add to further if required, subject to the necessary planning regulations.

The accommodation is arranged over two floors and offers in excess of 2,400 square feet providing well-proportioned rooms with generous ceiling heights on both floors.

The ground floor comprises a welcoming entrance hall with stairs off to the first floor, the heart of the home is a spacious open plan L-shaped kitchen dining and family space with cloak/shower room off, back off the entrance hall are two separate reception rooms with a double side fireplace between them.

The first floor consists of a generous dual aspect landing leading to a large principal bedroom with Jack and Jill end-suite shower room, the three further double bedrooms are serviced by a large family bathroom with separate shower cubicle. The substantial loft space can be accessed off the landing and lends itself for converting if required and subject to the necessary planning regulations.

Outside, to the side of the property is an extensive gravelled drive allowing for ample off street parking. Beyond to the rear is an enclosed westerly facing garden laid mainly to lawn with an established pond.
