Full description

A charming country cottage located in a picturesque and tranquil setting amid delightful secluded gardens. The cottage, although not listed retains character and detail, typical of the period with a number of modern refinements. The interior is arranged over two floors comprising a magnificent open plan sitting/dining room, a spacious study and a kitchen breakfast room with separate utility room and cloakroom. There are three bedrooms and a bathroom on the first floor. Externally the large, established gardens extend to the rear of the cottage, enjoying a high degree of privacy, with an ornamental pond and a variety of specimen trees. There is a useful garden room/office and a detached conservatory. A large gravel driveway to the front approaches a detached single garage.

Situation - The cottage stands in a tranquil position in this semi rural lane of predominantly period properties. Corston is a small village located midway between the M4 and the ancient town of Malmesbury which is reputed to be the oldest borough in the country dating back to the 11th Century. This thriving, pretty town offers a wealth of buildings of architectural interest, including its ancient Abbey, whilst also having a wide range of shops including a new Waitrose, award winning schools and leisure facilities. Early tributaries of The River Avon pass around the town and pretty walks are close at hand. There are good road links to the larger towns of Cirencester, Chippenham, Swindon, Bath and Bristol whilst the M4 motorway junction 17 is only 21/2 miles to the south. A mainline railway service from Chippenham to London Paddington in approximately 1 1/4 hours.

Directions - From Malmesbury take the A429 towards Chippenham and M4 junction 17. After approximately two miles enter the village of Corston and just before the bridge turn right into Mill Lane, proceed up the lane where the property will be found a few hundred yards along, on the right hand side denoted by our For Sale board.
