Little Acre was built some 50 years ago by the current owners and has been very well maintained both inside and out. They purchased adjacent land and the house now sits in a good sized plot, with the whole now extending to almost 1.5 acres. There is considerable scope for further development of the site and the most enviable location makes the most of the peaceful surroundings. UPVC windows are installed throughout, and very recent improvements include replacement of the water softener, the electric oven and a new electric fireplace feature in the sitting room.
Recessed front door leading to an L shaped hall with staircase off and the airing cupboard with the hot water cylinder. On the left is a study, an excellent vantage point overlooking the driveway. On the right is the L shaped sitting/dining rooms which has a marble effect fireplace with a contemporary electric fire. It is a large, light and airy space by virtue of windows and doors on three elevations. The kitchen/breakfast room has a tiled floor and a bespoke range of quality cabinets with Corian worksurfaces. The Neff electric double oven, hob and extractor are all built-in, while the dishwasher and fridge are integrated. In the breakfast area is a matching dresser unit and further cupboards housing the boiler and water softener. The utility room, again with a tiled floor, has plumbing for the washing machine and double doors onto a terrace. Also on the ground floor is the dual aspect front-to-back master bedroom, with one wall of fitted wardrobes including a concealed TV point. There is further storage beside and above the bed position plus an en suite shower. Next door is a family bathroom. On the first floor are four further bedrooms, all with dormer windows and two shower rooms - one en suite. One of the bedrooms has been used as a large home-office and has a built-in desk, bookshelves and an eaves cupboard.
There is gravelled parking for several cars adjacent to the DOUBLE GARAGE which has power and light. The left hand door is electric, and there is an adjacent carport. Behind the garage is the bunded oil tank and a metal garden shed. The gardens are mainly laid to lawn and wrap around all sides of the house, with two paved terraces, the one by the sitting room having a pergola over. There is a large vegetable plot with a Hartley Botanic greenhouse. Behind the adjacent hedge is a paddock, with a further area of paddock behind the garage. Outside of the driveway is a further area of land with wooden posts. Little Acre owns the driveway leading past the property with the two houses beyond having a right-of-way and shared maintenance. A well screened public footpath, heading towards the village Church, runs between the rear of the garden and the small paddock.
Mains water, electricity and drainage are connected. The oil fired boiler is in the kitchen. Council Tax Band E - £2,432.50 payable for 2022/23. EPC rating F - 32.
The hamlet of Hankerton is a quiet settlement roughly midway between the villages of Crudwell and Charlton. There is a good selection of shops and cultural activities in the historic old market town of Malmesbury, five miles south-west, while there is a wider range of amenities seven miles to the north in the lovely Cotswold town of Cirencester. The proximity of the M4 motorway provides excellent communications to Swindon, Bristol and Bath and there is a mainline train service from Kemble, about 6 miles distant.
