The Property

Dating from the mid 19th Century and altered in the late 20th Century, this cottage is one of a pair of three storey chiefly stone properties, beneath a tile covered roof. Period features include sash windows, a painted stone fireplace in the sitting room and exposed timbers. The cottage is unusual of its type in providing a utility area with cloakroom off, and a study area on the landing, in addition to three bedrooms. Vacant possession is immediately available and an early viewing is therefore advised.

A door to the right of the front door leads to a lobby with stairs to the first floor, and a further door into a utility area. This has plumbing for a washing machine, built-in cupboards and a door off to the cloakroom. On the first floor there is a study area on the landing which has built-in cupboards, one of which houses the gas combination boiler. Bedroom one at the front has a sash window, a Victorian style fireplace and a built-in wardrobe. Bedroom two at the rear is currently used as a study. The bathroom has a shower over the bath. A door on the landing leads to a charming dual aspect attic bedroom with painted beams, wood flooring plus built-in cupboards and drawers.

Location

The market town of Malmesbury sits on the highly desirable Gloucestershire/Wiltshire borders, just 12 miles from Cirencester, the capital of the Cotswolds.

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 country sports, excellent walking, cycling and water sports. The cosmopolitan city of Bath is 23 miles south-west.
