This Grade II listed, four storey, period cottage offers adaptable accommodation and is located a short walk away from Bradford on Avon town centre.

On a more practical note, the property benefits from gas fired radiator central heating. Local facilities close by include a variety of shops, restaurants, modern library and indoor swimming pool.
