Full description

A detached 3 bedroom period cottage IN NEED OF MODERNISATION in a quiet rural village easily accessible to Bath and M4 J18. Walled plot of 0.2 acre. NO CHAIN

Location - This popular village dates form Saxon times and has a thriving community. It comprises of mainly lovely old houses and cottages, a church and a renowned duck pond. In the neighbouring village of Sherston there is a village shop/post office, two pubs and a primary school. The lovely old towns of Malmesbury and Tetbury are both within a ten mile radius. The M4 and M5 motorway networks provide good communications with the area's major employment centres and there is a mainline train from Chippenham, about ten miles south-east.

The Property - This detached period property is thought to date from the mid 19th Century and has been in the same family ownership for over 100 years. It was originally two cottages forming part of the nearby Grittleton Estate. The whole of the village is a Conservation Area but we assume permission would be achievable for a replacement two storey rear extension to provide four bedrooms and two bathrooms once completed. There is also scope to incorporate the garage into the accommodation and perhaps erect a new traditional style car barn to the far side.

The Accommodation - The front door at present leads into the kitchen which has a range of units and the oil fired boiler. At the front is the sitting room which has a beamed ceiling and fireplace. Next to the kitchen is a large bathroom with separate shower. There are stairs to the first floor from the inner hall and through the utility area is a garage with store room at the rear. On the first floor are three double bedrooms, one with a vaulted ceiling and exposed beams.

Outside - Large off-road parking area to the front for several cars. The gardens are enclosed by natural stone walls and comprise lawned areas and several former vegetable gardens. Adjoining the rear of the house is a paved area and a block and rendered outbuilding. Beyond is a greenhouse and a working well. The metal field gate in the rear boundary wall is historic and there is not a right of way into the adjoining field.

Services - Mains water, electricity and drainage are connected. The oil fired boiler is in the kitchen.

Local Authority - Wiltshire Council Offices, Monkton Park, Chippenham, Wilts, SN15 1ER. Tel: 01249 706111,

Council Tax - Band E - £1878.42 for 2016/17.
