Detached open plan house with large garden, hot tub, sauna & gym cabin - Trowbridge home swap
Our chalet bungalow is located in a quiet, exclusive and leafy residential area on the outskirts of Trowbridge town. We bought it around 8 years ago and have since lovingly renovated and extended it at the rear to include a wonderful orangery lounge with full width doors opening on to our beautiful private garden containing a sunken hot tub and a sauna plus gym cabin - as well as a large patio and BBQ area. The lounge leads into an open plan dining area with table to seat 10 and a large well stocked kitchen which we both love cooking in. Next to the dining room is Tony`s office (which will be locked during your stay) from which he runs his top quality meat & fish delivery business. Along the hallway are the 2 guest bedrooms - one en-suite an the other next to the family bathroom, as well as a utility room with a washing machine & tumble drier.
Upstairs is the Master bedroom with a super-king bed, lounge area and a walk in wet room and bathroom. The bedroom leads out into a large balcony overlooking the garden. Val`s office, which you are welcome to use, is also upstairs.
We have fast broadband throughout the house, 2 landlines and Freesat TV as well as a comprehensive music system in the lounge. Although all our children have now left home and have families of their own, we meet up every week at our house for "family night" which means we have cots, high chairs, buggies, car seats, and toys that you would be welcome to use if you wished. Luckily for us we have several large cabins in the garden where we can store these when not in use, so the house is not cluttered when it is just the 2 of us.
We have a cleaner once a week (Mondays mornings) and could arrange a local personal trainer if you wished.
About the location
Just 8 miles from the beautiful Georgian City of Bath, 21 miles from Salisbury/Stonehenge, 25 miles from Bristol and 40 miles from the glorious Cotswolds, Trowbridge is itself the County Town of Wiltshire with a rich heritage based around the woollen industry. There are plenty of restaurants, shops, sports facilities and a cinema within a short walk of the house. We are very fortunate to be well placed with beautiful surrounding countryside yet at the same time be within easy reach to both the M3 and M4 motorways, allowing easy access to the South coast, London, Oxford, the South West, Wales and much more.
Tony is a keen fisherman so will be able to give you lots of advice about where to fish and we are also both scuba divers and can put you in touch with our local club in Bath if you wanted to find out about diving in the UK.
