This week’s house of the week is quite possibly the fanciest flat in Wiltshire which is located in a country mansion.

Charlton Park House dates from early 17th Century and was built for the Countess of Suffolk and the first Earl of Suffolk.

The south west front entrance dates from 1607 but the building was converted into 18 apartments by Christopher Buxton in 1975.

An apartment in the property is on sale with Savills of Cirencester for £895,000.

Arguably the greatest feature of the location is the great hall which is galleried and has a glazed oval dome over the centre.

Swindon Advertiser: The great hall is an architectural marvel.

There is also a communal drawing room which has impressive plasterwork with both rooms being available to pre-book for special occasions.

Another breathtaking feature is that the property comes with access to use the estate airstrip.

The apartment itself originally formed two separate apartments which have been combined to form one majestic home.

Within there are nearly 2,600 square feet of living space with tall ceilings and a multipurpose kitchen including a fireplace with wood burning stove.

The bedroom is located on the ground floor and is equipped with its own luxury en suite bathroom.

A striking hand crafted staircase takes you up to the first floor where you can find the drawing room with two mullioned windows overlook the park.

The apartment also has a double garage in the nearby complex.

A private lawn adjoins the communal grounds as the house is approached by a three quarter mile tree lined drive with shared use of the surrounding grounds and arboretum.

The large expansive gravel provides parking for both residents and visitors.

Mains water and electricity are connected with private drainage while there is an independent gas fired boiler which supplies central heating and hot water.

Swindon Advertiser: The upstairs drawing room offers fantastic views of outside the property.

The current lease was granted on the May 1, 1976, for 99 years and an extension has been applied for.

There is an age restriction which prevents children under 15 years old from living in the property on a permanent basis.

The property falls into council tax band G and the quarterly service charge including maintenance charges, buildings insurance, ground keeping and ground rent is £3,723.14.

The Jacobean mansion is situated within open parkland close to the village of Charlton and Malmesbury, England’s oldest borough, is around two miles away.
