Built in 1903, the house retains many beautiful period features of the era and has wonderfully proportioned accommodation with tall ceilings and large windows. The layout is...

largely as originally set out, which maintains the character and feel of the house whilst working well for modern day family life.The front door has period stained glass and is set within an impressive entrance porch opening to the reception hall, which has its original terrazzo floor. The accommodation radiates off the hall with a dining room and study to the front, both of which have lovely fireplaces.To the rear, the sitting room is a generous room with tall windows and French doors opening to the garden. The adjacent breakfast room also looks to the garden and adjoins the kitchen, which has been thoughtfully fitted by Smallbone of Devizes. A short flight of steps leads to the family room and together these spaces work brilliantly for family living, being distinct areas but also partially open plan. A door links to the garage and a useful storage cellar. On the first floor, arranged off a wonderfully generous landing, are the well-appointed bedrooms. The principal bedroom sits to the front of the house with a stylish en suite bathroom with separate bath and shower, beautifully finished with tiles by Fired Earth. A further three bedrooms are served by a family bathroom and a practical laundry room is also situated on this level.Stairs continue to the fifth bedroom on the second floor, where there is also a useful store room. Camden House is approached via a shared drive leading on to its own drive at the front of the house. Raised up from the road and well set back behind mature trees and shrubs, the house is tucked away out of sight. The gardens provide a wonderfully secluded space to enjoy to the rear of the house. A pretty summer house sits to the far end, and the garden is laid to lawn with mature shrub and tree borders.
