4 bedroom detached house for sale
Holloway Hill, Malmesbury, Wiltshire
The property occupies an unusual setting, with unspoilt rural views over the adjoining meadows to the River Avon, and yet within a short walk of the centre of the town. The main house was built in the 1950's, with a later extension, and comprises a detached family house with a large kitchen/breakfast room, two reception rooms and four bedrooms. The house would now benefit from a little updating but offers great scope and potential to alter or extend the property (subject to any necessary consents) to suit a purchaser's own requirements.
Delmont sits within a good sized garden, contained within mature hedging and high fencing. It is laid mainly to lawn, with mixed borders and a number of fruit trees. There is a vehicular entrance from Holloway Hill and a timber garage with a small garden store to one side. On the far side of the garden are two further useful timber store sheds.
Malmesbury is a charming market town, reputed to be the oldest borough in England. The town, which is dominated by the fine 12th century Abbey, has an excellent range of shops and services.

Malmesbury School is particularly well regarded and recently converted to Academy status. The main regional centres are Bath, Bristol, Swindon, Gloucester and Cheltenham, all of which are within daily commuting distance. Direct rail services to London Paddington from either Chippenham Station (about 8 miles) or Kemble (about 6 miles) scheduled to take from c.75 minutes.
Accessed via a separate entrance from the road is the forge. This is built partly of red brick, with a large rendered blockwork extension having tall double doors at one end. Steps lead up to a first floor loft at one end. Beyond the Forge is a good-sized parking area and some former pigsties. A bridge leads over a stream to an attractive and unspoilt meadow, with the River Avon forming the eastern boundary.
