Full description

Tenure: Freehold

In many ways this lovely semi-detached cottage is the archetypal village property due to its enviable location in a particularly sought after village, large gardens offering a good degree of privacy and spacious rooms some of which retain features including exposed ceiling beams.

The original cottage has been greatly extended to the side and rear to offer deceptively spacious accommodation comprising entrance hall, downstairs cloakroom/shower room, dual aspect sitting room with fireplace, separate dining room, kitchen/breakfast room, garden room, first floor landing, 4 good bedrooms (one is located on the ground floor and suitable as an additional reception room) and family bathroom. The property benefits from oil fired central heating.

The cottage offers tremendous scope for improvement. It is in need of general updating throughout but is a project that can be carried out on a room by room basis and we believe prospective buyers will relish the opportunity to put their own stamp on the cottage.

Outside, the cottage benefits from rear vehicular access which is not apparent from the front of the house. The private driveway provides excellent additional parking and also leads to a double garage with access directly into the rear garden. The outstanding feature of the property are the stunning and well-proportioned gardens on three sides of the cottage and are likely to be approaching a quarter of an acre in total.

Hillside Cottages comprises two properties on the fringe of the village fronting onto a small lane. Great Hinton continues to be one of the most sought after villages in the area and has a pleasing blend of character homes and more modern individual properties.

The County town of Trowbridge has an excellent and soon to be expanding range of shopping and leisure facilities and is situated about 4 miles away. Other neighbouring towns include Devizes and Melksham.
For commuters Bath, Bristol, Salisbury and Swindon are all within daily reach. The M4 motorway lies just to the north of Chippenham (about 12 miles) whilst direct rail services to London are available from Bath, Chippenham and Westbury and less frequently or via connection from Trowbridge station.

The gardens are laid to extensive areas of lawn flanked by mature hedges, shrubs, bushes and trees. A two tier stone wall above a sitting area is a nice feature and a path from the cottage leads to the double garage. At the far end of the garden there are views over adjacent fields and there is a further area housing a SHED and GREENHOUSE.
