An attractive detached period stone cottage located within walking distance of the High Street (0.1 mile). Originally constructed in the early 1800's as a pair of cottages, the property was refurbished and extended in 1999, receiving an award from the Malmesbury Preservation Trust in 2001. Further extended in 2008 the property now includes a family/dining room with adjoining stone outbuilding providing potential to be incorporated into the house if required. Briefly the living space comprises an entrance porch with small utility area and a kitchen/breakfast room with a good range of fitted units including integrated appliances and a dual fuel range cooker set within a fireplace style recess. The sitting room has a fireplace with multi-fuel stove and wooden flooring and the adjoining family/dining room has French windows opening onto the terrace and wooden flooring. To the first floor are two bedrooms, both with built-in wardrobes and a fitted bathroom complimented by Quartz detailing around the bath & basin. Located on the second floor are two further bedrooms and a shower room. Benefits include traditional timber sealed unit double gazed windows and Karndean flooring in the kitchen and bathrooms.
The market town of Malmesbury sits on the highly desirable Gloucestershire/Wiltshire borders, just 12 miles from Cirencester, "the capital of the Cotswolds." Reputed to be England's oldest borough, dating from around 880 AD, it has a good selection of shops and a regular farmers' market, a library, museum, leisure centre with pool, two primary schools and a "High Performing Academy" secondary school. The 12th century Abbey and Abbey House Gardens together with the nearby Westonbirt Arboretum are significant tourist attractions. The Royal Estates of Highgrove and Gatcombe Park are close by and the area is known for its many sporting activities with the city of Bath 23 miles to the south-west. J17 of the M4 provides access to the area's major employment centres and there are trains to Paddington in just over an hour from Chippenham, Kemble and Swindon.
To the side of the cottage is a brick paved parking bay with gated access to the rear landscaped garden. Adjoining the property is a large paved terrace providing a fantastic outdoor entertaining space and beyond is an expanse of lawn with two silver birch trees and a row of pleached hornbeam trees set above a natural stone boundary wall. There is a further area of river fronted garden and additional parking is provided within the adjacent housing development called The Maltings.
