This deceptively spacious Grade II Listed cottage is situated within easy walking distance to Malmesbury town centre and enjoys stunning far-reaching southerly views across the town and surrounding countryside. Originally two cottages dating back to the mid 19th Century before converted into one, the property was enlarged and reconfigured in modern times with a rear extension superbly connecting the accommodation to the south facing garden and views. The beautifully presented accommodation is arranged over three floors and extends in all to 1,439 sq.ft. with many period features including a stone fireplace, exposed beams and stone walls.
On the ground floor an entrance hall opens to the modern fitted kitchen with an adjoining breakfast room leading out to the garden. The good-sized living room has a log burner and connects through to the dining room and garden room both with doors opening to the garden plus Velux windows bringing in lots of natural light. To the side, the bathroom boasts a roll top bath with plumbing for a washing machine. On the first floor there is a double bedroom, spacious modern shower room and fitted dressing room. The dressing room has stairs leading to the principal double bedroom on the second floor. An additional staircase on the opposing side leads to a further attic double bedroom.
Extending to around 155ft in length, the south-facing garden is of particular note landscaped over numerous terraces of patios and lawns, leading down towards the River Avon. At the foot of the garden there is the excellent new addition of a garden studio complete with power and lighting.
Malmesbury is an ancient hilltop town situated on the southern edge of The Cotswolds. Traditionally a market town serving the rural area of North West Wiltshire, the town is reputed to be the oldest borough in England created by Charter in 880 AD by Alfred the Great. Today, the High Street has numerous independent shops, pubs and restaurants including a new Aldi, Waitrose store and a regular weekly Farmer's market whilst the town has excellent choice of both primary and secondary schools and good recreational and leisure facilities. The M4 motorway (J17) to the south provides fast road access to the major employment centres of Bristol and Swindon together with London and the West Country. Main line rail services are available from Chippenham and Kemble (Paddington in about 75 minutes).
