A dreamy country estate of 7 acres with a showpiece Huf Haus at its heart

There are many factors that make Upper Earls Court Farm a magical place. From the peaceful setting down a 550 ft private drive, to the iconic Huf Haus with its stunning glass façade, the endless rolling countryside giving views in every direction, or the incredible potential to create your own rural idyll in 7 acres of private land. Put all these elements together and you have something truly special. To find a property with this much space, privacy and potential is a rare opportunity indeed.

Let’s start with the estate’s centrepiece: the architectural masterpiece that is the Huf Haus. As you reach the end of the private driveway this incredible piece of modern design comes into view – a cathedral like structure of glass and timber that will take your breath away.
The house is exquisitely and sensitively designed to complement the surrounding landscape, bringing the outside in through wall-to-ceiling glazing, balconies and terraces on all sides.

Huf is a family business that has been designing their distinctive pre-fabricated homes since the 1970’s. The company prides itself on building each house to each customer’s exact specifications, but with a modular design that can be easily adapted as lifestyle and needs change over time. The Huf Haus at Upper Earls Court Farm has been designed as a two-bedroom, three-bathroom layout with a fabulous master suite featuring his and hers bathrooms and a generous balcony where you can sit and enjoy views across countryside to the ancient Ridgeway. The current owner has obtained plans from Huf to easily convert the existing layout into a 3 or 4-bedroom home should the new owners wish.

With modern comforts and the highest eco credentials, Huf Haus produce the ultimate in eco-friendly homes. Every Huf Haus is incredibly energy efficient and the company continues to strive to be carbon neutral. With triple glazing that’s more energy saving than most walls, underfloor zoned heating throughout and electric cantilevered shutters that open and close at the touch of a button, you can forget about huge heating bills.

Downstairs you’ll find modern open plan living at its best. A light and spacious entrance hall opens into a spectacular living room/dining room with glass walls on three sides. Double doors open out onto a quiet patio perfect for morning coffee. The kitchen boasts luxurious finishes including Corian worksurfaces, and is packed with high end Miele and Gaggenau appliances. The guest bedroom with ensuite shower room is downstairs and enjoys beautiful views over the Zen-like formal garden to the rear. There’s also a separate downstairs cloakroom with WC and utility room. On the first floor you’ll find that fantastic master bedroom suite we talked about earlier, together with a floating mezzanine level and yet another balcony from which to enjoy the view.

The gardens to the rear of the house have been beautifully landscaped and maintained. This is a wonderfully peaceful area where the views continue over the manicured lawns to the field beyond and the only sounds you’ll hear are the birds and the tinkling of the water feature which runs around the edge of the patio.

As for the rest of this wonderful estate, Upper Earls Court Farm offers endless possibilities to create your own countryside dream. Just across the driveway there is a large stable block of approximately 871 square feet. This building has its own entrance, independent heating supply and is double glazed throughout. One half of the building is currently used as an office and storage, whilst the other half has been sympathetically converted into a self-contained one-bedroom apartment with sitting room, kitchen, bathroom and double bedroom. You could use this as a granny annexe, to generate rental income or subject to the relevant planning permissions, link this building to the main house or design a completely separate bespoke property on the site.

Two further detached buildings are currently used as storage for garden machinery and would be perfect for converting back to stables if you are intending to keep horses at the property. Also on the land are several aviary houses with a generous square footage and enormous potential to convert into living accommodation. Two further well-maintained paddocks are to the rear and the side of the property.

Location

If we told you that this peaceful rural idyll was just 10 minutes’ drive from Swindon and 3.5 miles from the M4 J15 you probably wouldn’t believe us. But we promise it really is possible to have the countryside dream without the remote and inaccessible location! Swindon railway station is 6 miles away and offers a fast service to London Paddington in 55 minutes. The pretty market towns of Marlborough and Cirencester are 11 and 17 miles away respectively.

Horsey types will be in seventh heaven here with a huge number of rural paths and bridleways right on the doorstep.

You’re spoiled for choice when it comes to great schools with Pinewood, Rendcomb College,
St Francis Pewsey, Marlborough and St Marys Calne just a few of the leading independent schools in the area. The village of Wanborough has several cracking pubs, a post office and village shop for the essentials and a well regarded primary school.

If you want complete peace and privacy with no passing traffic and uninterrupted views, but within striking distance of transport, shops and amenities then Upper Earls Court Farm could be just the place you’re looking for. We can’t wait to show you around!
