South Wraxall is a picturesque rural Wiltshire Village found three miles from Bradford on Avon and five Miles from Bath. The village is made up of two parts, Upper South Wraxall and Lower South Wraxall (referred to by local residents as 'The Lower Village' and 'The Upper Village') separated by only a field's width, and housing a population of just over 300 residents.
Although there is no longer a shop in the village, South Wraxall does have a number amenities and points of interest including The South Wraxall Club Co-operative, Saint James's Church which dates back to the 14th Century and neighbours the Village Hall, and The Longs Arms Pub notable for a number of local awards and national recognition. The village is also home to South Wraxall Manor which is rumoured to be the first place in England where tobacco was smoked by Sir Walter Raleigh, and was featured on the BBC documentary "The Country House Revealed".

With views over the garden and on to the rural landscapes beyond the garden wall, the kitchen is the warm and inviting heart to this lovely period home. The hand painted bespoke wooden units are topped with solid wood block work surfaces, which in turn make way to a large Twyfords ceramic sink adjacent to the front aspect window. A Rangemaster oven and natural stone style flooring add to the country character and are the perfect compliment to the overall feel of the home.
There is a glass panelled door leading in from the front of the property which serves as the main entrance to the property.

From the kitchen the stone flooring continues into this fantastic reception space. For entertaining guests of an evening or for the younger members of the family to sit and do homework as Mum and Dad prepare dinner - this room has character as well as practicality. There is a stable door to the rear garden, under stairs storage space, and the room is finished by the feature fireplace.
Stairs lead from the dining room to the first floor landing.

Similarly to other reception rooms in the house this main living area bursts with character. Period touches such as original stone mullions and stone fire surround give a feel of age and solidity, whilst the reclaimed wooden flooring compliments the contemporary decor beautifully creating a stylish look.
First Floor Landing
Stairs rise from the dining room to a long landing with natural light from two windows to the side aspect. You will no doubt be taken with the exposed masonry as you pass through to three bedrooms on this floor as well as a bathroom and a shower room. From here we can also continue onward and up to the attic level.

A beautiful dual aspect room from where you can wake up every morning to far reaching views across the Wiltshire countryside. Comfortably big enough to accommodate your king size bed, there is built in wardrobe storage running almost the full width of the room.
10' 5'' x 10' 10'' (3.17m x 3.30m)
Another well proportioned double bedroom, again with views over the garden and rural scene beyond. Similarly to other rooms on this level the flooring is of exposed wood, and there is plenty of space for bedroom furniture.
7' 8'' (max) x 10' 2'' (2.34m x 3.10m)
A quirky room, but generous in scale, with wooden flooring and exposed beams. There is also useful built in storage.
The main family bathroom is finished in a classic period style but with all the conveniences of modern living. There is wood panelling to the walls, low level WC, traditional pedestal wash hand basin and a free standing roll top bath tub.
Separate to the main bathroom the property benefits from an additional shower room. Here we have a modern suite including walk in shower, low level WC and wash hand basin. Walls and splash backs are largely tiled, with a Velux skylight above the shower providing natural light and ventilation to the room.
35' 2'' (max) x 7' 5'' (including skeeling) (10.71m x 2.26m)
This room will come as a real surprise! The usable space runs the full length of the property and offers plentiful under eaves storage along either side. the current owners have one end of the room set up as a really cool and quirky modern office space, which looks out of one of the Velux windows to stunning views across the local surroundings. In the middle of the room there is a laundry area including plumbing for washing machine. Then on to the far end where you can creep through to further space which could be extra storage, or would make the perfect hidey hole for the youngest members of the family!
Surrounded by stone walling and with an ornate iron gate to the front, the garden is largely laid to grass, with planted shrubs and herbaceous raised borders throughout this quiet and pretty cottage garden. There is a small patio area off the back of the property where you can enjoy morning coffees or something cold of an evening.
