Standing in an elevated position in the heart of old Wroughton village is this hidden gem of a cottage formally a lodge house, aptly named 'The Lodge'. This detached property has been in the same family for almost 50 years. Of architectural interest, this Grade II listed property with a white exterior set beneath a thatched roof and porch all adds to its overall charm and appeal. The property is in need of modernisation and currently offers a sitting room with the original inglenook fireplace and ‘oven’ and inset wooden settle, dining room, conservatory, kitchen and family bathroom on the ground floor and two bedrooms and a shower room on the first floor.
All these factors combined with the potential to make it your own, subject to the usual consents, makes this a most appealing property.
Wroughton provides an extensive range of amenities including nearby schooling at primary and secondary levels, doctors surgery, library, public houses and shopping facilities (including a Waitrose on the outskirts of the village). The commercial centre of Swindon is about 2.2 miles to the north where there is a main line station to London Paddington (55 minutes) and South Wales and the West Country. Wroughton is approximately half way between Junction 15 and Junction 16 on the M4 motorway, which likewise provides easy access to London and the West country.
The village nestles beneath the Marlborough Downs and Ridgeway National Trail and the surrounding countryside. Nearby is the beautiful historic Clouts Wood, which contains many footpaths and bridleways making it ideal for walking, riding and other country pursuits.
Steps lead up to the cottage and the garden neatly wraps around the property. Mature trees and shrubs make the garden a private space ideal for relaxing and pottering. There is a garage at road level providing parking or as additional storage.
