Location - The market town of Malmesbury sits on the highly desirable Gloucestershire/Wiltshire borders, just 12 miles from Cirencester, "the capital of the Cotswolds." Malmesbury is reputed to be England's oldest borough, dating from around 880 AD. It has a good selection of shops and a regular farmers' market, a library, museum, leisure centre with pool, two primary schools and a "High Performing Academy" secondary school. The 12th century Abbey and Abbey House Gardens together with the nearby Westonbirt Arboretum are significant tourist attractions. The Royal estates of Highgrove and Gatcombe Park are close by and the area is known for its country sports, excellent walking, cycling and water sports. The cosmopolitan city of Bath is 23 miles south-west. J17 of the M4 provides access to the area's major employment centres and there are trains to Paddington in just over an hour from Chippenham, Kemble and Swindon.

The Property - WESTPORT MANOR is a landmark building in Malmesbury which was skilfully converted in 2011 into nine luxury one, two and three bedroom apartments. The building lies in a Conservation Area towards the edge of the town and has enjoyed an interesting past. Many Malmesbury folk will have attended Westport Manor either during its time as a boy's primary school in the early to mid 1900's, or more recently while it was the art department for the nearby secondary school. The students' paint and clay spatters are now all gone and the magnificent windows have been restored to their former glory. The stone work has been fastidiously cleaned and repointed, so it should be good for another 200 years. The nine apartments are unique in Malmesbury. A brilliant combination of the best of both worlds - period aesthetics and the latest modern building standards. This has produced contemporary interiors with unique features that are specifically designed for the more discerning and sophisticated market.

The Accommodation - Number seven is on the ground floor and one of only three apartments, sharing a separate entrance, at the far end of the building. A glazed door with intercom gives access to the hallway with stairs to the first and second floors. On the left is a private front door which leads into a fabulous open plan kitchen/dining/living space which is light and airy with large mullion windows to the front. The well equipped kitchen has a good range of gloss cupboards with granite worktops. There is a built-in electric oven and microwave, ceramic hob with extractor hood over. Integrated appliances include a dishwasher, fridge and freezer. There are two double bedrooms leading off and luxury en suite shower/bath rooms. There is also a useful storage cupboard and separate utility cupboard with plumbing for a washing machine.

Outside - There are lawned communal gardens to the front and rear of the property. A block paved driveway leads to private residents' and visitor parking. There is also a communal bicycle store and wheelie bin storage.

Services - All mains are connected. The wall mounted gas fired combination boiler is hidden in a wall unit in the kitchen area.

Tenure And Service Charge - A 125 year lease was created on 25/12/10 and the ground rent is £125 per annum. The service charge for 2016 is £1869 and includes an estimate for the communal costs which are reconciled with the actual costs after the year end. The service charge includes buildings insurance, cleaning and maintenance of the communal areas, redecoration of the communal hall, the annual servicing of the fire alarm, cleaning of the refuse and bike stores, bi-annual external window cleaning and auditing of the accounts.
