Bordering countryside and enjoying fine views from most of the rooms, this individual home has been painstakingly renovated and creatively extended, and is set down a tranquil lane within this prized village. Internally a light and airy hallway with both French limestone and oak flooring opens off to a stunning handmade kitchen by 'Cheverell Wood' well equipped with a range of quality integrated appliances and two sets of bi-folding doors onto the garden. There is a large dual aspect sitting room, a flexible study/snug, utility and cloakroom. The whole ground floor benefits from underfloor heating. Handmade oak stairs rises to a gallery landing with glass balustrade opens to four bedrooms and a stylish family bathroom. A glass link leads to a 23ft vaulted master bedroom with floor to ceiling views over countryside and en suite with luxurious fittings. Heating is provided through an air source heat pump. A private driveway provides parking for a few vehicles and there is a superb double garage with electric doors, a store room and wood shed. There is a newly turfed side garden and a south facing front garden that enjoys the panoramic vista. No chain.


From Devizes, proceed on the A342 Andover Road and continue until Lydeway is reached. Turn right at Lydeway Garage towards Urchfont and at the next T-junction turn right again. Continue into the village and on the sharp right hand bend (just after Wildmans) turn right into the village centre. Take the first right hand turn just before the duck pond signposted 'The Bottom'. Continue into uphill where the property can be found on the right hand side up a gravelled driveway just past Carina Cottage.


Fairview occupies a pleasant setting with far reaching rural views within the very picturesque village of Urchfont which forms part of the famous Pewsey Vale with its surrounding rolling downland and countryside. The village is renowned for its central duck pond and fine period properties and has a junior school, Church, public house, community shop, post office and other local amenities. The nearby market town of Devizes is about six miles away and Pewsey, where there is a mainline railway station (Paddington about one hour), a similar distance away. The other major centres of Swindon, Chippenham, Marlborough, Bath and Salisbury are all within a thirty mile radius.
