Malmesbury - The first reference to Malmesbury was in 731 when Bede referred to the place as Maildufi urbs. This attractive hilltop market town lies on the A429 Cirencester to Chippenham road and has easy access to the M4, Swindon, Bristol and Bath as well as excellent rail links at Kemble and Chippenham.
Malmesbury has two excellent State primary schools and secondary school (rated Outstanding by Ofsted), a thriving High Street with a good selection of shops including a Waitrose supermarket, several pubs, restaurants and hotels, an indoor swimming pool and sports centre. Malmesbury is famous for its beautiful Abbey where King Athelstan is buried, the fabulous Abbey House Gardens, and 15th century Market Cross.

The Property - The Old Dairy has been renovated and extended to an extremely high standard by the present owners and offers flexible accommodation combining a mixture of tradition with a contemporary twist. Through an oak stable door one enters The Old Dairy into the impressive vaulted green oak and glazed entrance porch which also features two leaded windows, exposed red brick and terracotta floor tiles. The porch leads in to the wonderfully light double aspect sitting room which has oak flooring and an oak staircase, with useful under stair storage, leading to the first floor. Directly ahead is the entrance to the kitchen which benefits from an extensive range of units with granite work surfaces over, Belfast sink and high gloss tiled floor. There are two built in ovens, electric hob with extractor hood over, an integrated washing machine and slimline dishwasher plus space for an American style fridge freezer. To the front of the property double glazed doors lead out to the pergola and patio. Beyond the kitchen breakfast bar is a stunning open plan dining and family room, with wood burning stove, which is flooded with light from two velux ceiling lights and bi-fold doors extending the entire width of both ends of the room which seamlessly extends the house into the garden. The kitchen leads to a downstairs cloakroom with WC and then on to the duplex master suite which comprises an en suite shower room and large dressing room downstairs leading up a second staircase to the large master bedroom.
The remaining two bedrooms and family bathroom are approached from the staircase in the sitting room and both bedrooms feature useful storage cupboards in the alcoves, built in wardrobes and window seats.
Oak abounds throughout the property, and the character is further established by the reclaimed internal doors, double glazed leaded windows with inset casements. Under-floor heating extends throughout the entire ground floor. Both the house and garden have been wired for sound throughout with Sky multi-room system.

Outside - The Old Dairy is approached along a private lane which leads to a large paved driveway with parking for several cars as well as a double oak car barn.
The private, mostly walled garden, is accessed through an attractive wrought iron gate and is predominantly to the front of property. The gardens have been professionally landscaped and imaginatively planted. Palms add an exotic glamour to the garden and are blended beautifully with an abundance of English country garden plants, featuring roses, wisteria, fuchsia and box topiary. Steps lead down to an area laid to lawn and then on to a patio with pergola providing a beautiful spot to admire the garden and its many vistas. At the rear of the property are raised vegetable troughs and a teak greenhouse which benefits from electricity and water supply. The garden has both a watering and discreet lighting system plus is wired for sound with Sky multi-room system. Adjoining the car barn is a large workshop which has power and lighting and houses the LPG combi-boiler for the annex upstairs. At the rear of this building, through a solid oak door, stairs lead to a generous guest bedroom with glass apex at the far end and two large velux windows which gives the room a light contemporary feel. To the right is a modern shower room. The Old Dairy is a twenty minute walk from town via a recently constructed footpath.
