DESCRIPTION This impressive Georgian house commands an excellent position in the very heart of Malmesbury town centre, just a stone throw away from an array of shops and eateries.

Furthermore, the property sits just opposite the statue of the Meditating Monk by sculptor William Lazard created in honour of Malmesbury's history and the towns 12th century Benedictine abbey. The striking exterior is extremely eye-catching with a symmetrical front elevation and spear-headed iron railings to the side. The elegance of Georgian design is prominent throughout the property featuring superbly proportioned rooms enhanced by high ceilings and tall sash windows, complete with window shutters, panel doors and cast iron radiators. In modern years, the property has been lovingly restored and updated sympathetic to its Georgian heritage.

The entrance hall has a staircase rising up and decorative tiled flooring below. The dual-aspect living room features herringbone flooring and a wood-burning stove set within the fireplace. Traditional flagstone flooring spans the kitchen/dining room. The kitchen has been fitted with bespoke timber units beneath a granite worksurface incorporating a double Belfast sink. On the first floor, the dual-aspect principal bedroom sits across the landing from the main bathroom and both feature charming iron fireplaces. The luxuriously spacious bathroom features a claw-foot roll-top bath at the centre beside a large walk-in shower. On the top floor there are two further double bedrooms with exposed beamed ceilings and solid wood flooring accompanied by a WC. Double French doors from the kitchen lead out to the courtyard garden arranged at the side enjoying both a south and west aspect. The garden enjoys a good degree of privacy bound by high stone walls and is laid over two patio levels ideal for low maintenance. A rear gate provides convenient access for maintenance and bins. Parking is readily available in the nearby streets and public carparks.
