Charming 2 bedroom detached cottage in need of modernisation situated in the sought after village. Fabulous garden and parking area. Potential to extend (subject to planning).

Situation And Description - This charming 2 bedroom detached cottage is situated in the popular village of Broughton Gifford. The village is set in the rolling Wiltshire countryside near the historic market towns of Bradford on Avon and Melksham. The village has a thriving village School, a large common, beautiful countryside walks, a cricket and football pitch, bowling green, a village hall and two popular public houses.

The village of Holt just up the road offers a village store and caf. Nearby Bradford on Avon, Trowbridge and Melksham offer a wealth of shopping facilities and further afield is the World Heritage city of Bath.

The stone cottage is in generally good order but could do with some modernisation. It has an abundance of features to include fireplace, sash windows and wood doors.

The property offers great potential to re-configure the accommodation and/or extend to make it a larger family home (subject to necessary consents).

To the side of the cottage is a parking area with driveway and one of the main selling points is the excellent enclosed rear garden with mature trees and shrubs.
