  • Bedrooms: 4
Set within partly walled grounds of just over an acre, surrounded by wonderful open countryside and woodland, Alton Parva House is a handsome, characterful, detached country property of good proportions.

This light and airy family home retains much original character and is offered for sale in excellent order, fully double glazed and centrally heated via an oil fired boiler to radiators. There is an elegant reception hall, two separate reception rooms with working fireplaces and a lovely farmhouse kitchen with a mixture of original fitted cabinetry and contemporary units. Off the kitchen is a side lobby with access to a large boiler room and ground floor cloakroom. The first floor has a full galleried landing with windows overlooking the grounds and surrounding countryside; there is a master bedroom suite, three further double bedrooms and a family bathroom, all of which have picturesque views.

Planning consent was granted on 30 October 2018 (Wiltshire Council Planning Reference 18/08500/FUL) for the addition of a full two-storey extension to the left-hand side of the house which will provide a master bedroom suite, dining room, utility room and ground floor cloakroom. Within the same consent permission has been granted for the erection of a substantial detached triple bay garage block with first-floor accommodation; the computer-generated image (CGI) shows Alton Parva House as it would be if the Planning Consent were

implemented. The floor plan identifies the proposed extension to the house in yellow.
