Situation - Malmesbury lies close to the border of Wiltshire and Gloucestershire, 14 miles south of Cirencester and 10 miles north of Chippenham, with Swindon 23 miles to the east and Bath 24 miles to the west. It has a good selection of shops including a Waitrose supermarket, a regular farmers' market, a library, museum, leisure centre with pool, two primary schools and a "High Performing Academy" secondary school. J17 of the M4, 5 miles south, 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 apartments. The building lies in a Conservation Area towards the western 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 re-pointed, so the building 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 that are specifically designed for the more discerning and sophisticated market.
There are only two 3 bedroom duplex apartments, which have the ceiling exposed to full height with the original beams and a mezzanine level. In addition they have the unusual benefit of two allocated parking spaces.
The Accommodation - Communal door to stairs leading to the second floor. Private front door leading into the apartment. The large open plan living space has a vaulted ceiling with exposed trusses and is the epitome of space, elegance and contemporary living. Large mullion windows flood the room with natural light and there are delightful views of the town rooftops and the Abbey. The kitchen area has a built-in cooker and microwave with a five ring ceramic hob and pop-up extractor fan in the island unit, which is large enough to double as a breakfast bar. The fridge, freezer and slimline dishwasher are all integrated and the understair cupboard houses the washer dryer. Wide double doors adjacent lead to a study or third bedroom at the rear. The second bedroom has a shower room adjacent with a large walk-in enclosure. The impressive master bedroom is on the mezzanine level with a glass balcony overlooking the living room, extensive eaves wardrobes, a bathroom with double ended bath and separate shower, plus a study area overlooking the kitchen.
