YOPA Property are delighted to offer new to market this immaculately & beautifully presented five double bedroom detached period property situated in the highly sought after area of Lakeside, Old Town. This truly fabulous home has been extended and renovated to the highest of standards, while maintaining many of the original period features.  Using the popular era in mind, the tasteful styling is evident all the way through this property. 

Situation - Corby Avenue is situated in the sought after tree-lined area of Lakeside, on the edge of Swindon's popular Old Town. Within a stones throw are lovely walks around the lakes of Lawns Park and the convenient amenities of Old Town’s restaurants, bars, banks, grocers and supermarket are a short walking distance away. Junction 15 of the M4 and the A419 are 5 minutes away by car as is the Great Western Hospital. The main Town Centre is also within easy reach with a wide range of shops, supermarkets, cinema and other amenities. Swindon offers excellent employment opportunities and a mainline railway station to Paddington in under 1 hour. Lakeside is also in the catchment area for good schooling.

Accommodation - The enclosed porch leads to the bright and welcoming hallway which still contains the original leaded door and window casements and terrazzo flooring. The first room you encounter is the front facing sitting room with many period features. Its huge bay fronted windows allow a mass of light into the room. However, your eyes are drawn to the beautiful 1930's open fireplace which really makes a superb focal point.


From the sitting room along the hallway you are completely blown away with its open plan family breakfast/dining room, plus utility. This great living space is stunning and so tastefully designed by its current owners. It’s quickly apparent that no expense was spared on this great space. The kitchen is fully fitted with ample soft close storage units finished with modern walnut wood handles and solid quartz work surfaces. All Bosch appliances are fully-integrated including double pyrolytic self-cleaning ovens and 5 point induction hob. This space comes into its own when the bi-folding doors open the room up to the private rear garden. The lounge area of the room contains a Jotul Defra approved wood-burning stove and is a great feature. The 25ft x 25ft space is laid with Concreate natural fibre concrete flooring with dual control underfloor heating throughout the downstairs extension.

The utility room with Belfast style sink provides additional space for a washing machine and tumble dryer. This leads on to the separate downstairs cloakroom.

On the first floor you are gifted with a spacious landing which leads to 5 double bedrooms. The master bedroom is situated at the rear in the extended part of the property which hosts a contemporary and stylish En-suite. The front facing bedroom, with large bay window still retains its original fireplace and picture rail adding great features to the room.

The family bathroom only continues the wealth of taste and effort with its freestanding solid stone, shower and vanity sink with duel taps.

The whole property benefits from the Niko Home Control lighting system.

Outside - To the front of the property is a gravel driveway with ample parking. Access to the garage. The private rear garden which is mostly laid to lawn with mature trees and shrub boarders.
