Full description

Abbey Lea is a substantial, individually designed detached bungalow which stands on a bold plot of 0.4 acre, amid attractive lawned gardens. Located in a private and tranquil setting yet the town centre and walkways beside the River Avon are within easy walking distance. The accommodation is generous with a practical layout providing excellent family living space, however we believe the current footprint could be extended subject to the usual planning consents. The interior comprises an L shaped hallway with cloakroom, an impressive 19'9 x 19'2 sitting room with a separate dining room, kitchen breakfast room and utility. There are four bedrooms and a spacious family bathroom. Externally a driveway to the front approaches a large attached double garage with space for a workshop and additional loft storage.

Situation - Abbey Lea is situated in a private and tranquil setting yet the town centre and the walkways beside the River Avon are within easy walking distance. The hilltop town of Malmesbury is officially recognised as England's oldest borough. Situated on the edge of the Cotswolds, surrounded by two branches of the River Avon, it boasts buildings of golden Cotswold stone and beautiful river walks. Famous for its ancient Abbey and elaborate 15th century Market Cross, the town may well have history round every corner but is also bursting with life, enjoying excellent independent shops, a Waitrose, charming cosy pubs, friendly cafes, regular farmers' markets and a busy local events schedule. The establishment of the Dyson design and development headquarters on the edge of the town means that Malmesbury is now a centre for technical innovation, allowing the town to truly describe itself as both ancient and modern. Malmesbury is five miles north of the M4 (Junction 17) so within easy commuting distance of Bristol, Bath and Swindon. London is approximately 11/2 hours away by car or train.
