An utterly charming and exquisitely finished Grade II listed cottage exuding period charm with exemplary finishes and outstanding attention to detail. Having been lovingly remodelled with painstaking efforts to maximise the space available, this picture postcard home has been the passion project of the current owner since purchase in 2018.

Situated well back from the road on a quiet backwater street in the heart of the old town, Swift Cottage is an enticing and unforgettable example of where creative flair meets incredible design. The downstairs reception room is beautifully appointed with a stylish inframe, hand-built kitchen situated to one end. Spanning the depth of the space, the quality of cabinetry is complimented by a granite worktop and upstand. Further benefits include a Miele oven and hob, pantry cupboard, inset sink with brass DeVol mixer tap as well as a wooden panelled splashback with reclaimed shelfing. With exposed beams, restored stonework and a stunning engineered wooden floor, the room centres around an attractive chimney breast with inset AGA log burning stove. A bespoke window seat defines an appealing dining area, whilst adjacent to the front door is a useful utility cupboard with neighbouring built-in bar with a Miele washing machine and tumble dryer fitted beneath.

Rising to the first floor is the boutique, hotel inspired double bedroom. Benefitting from custom bedside and wall mounted cupboards, the room encapsulates the epitome of Cotswold charm with muted tones, deep set picturesque windows, original working shutters, quirky sloped ceilings, alongside refurbished beams, bronze fittings and elegant tongue and grove panelling. Tucked away to the corner is a useful dressing area or study space. There is also a sizeable loft for additional storage.

An en-suite bathroom is then accessed via smart double doors and comprises a fitted luxurious suite with a cosy bath and overhead shower, low level W/C as well as tailored cupboards with a countertop ceramic basin. Further benefits include a cast iron radiator, opulent brass fittings as well as a wooden window and fabric blind.

To the front of the property the seller has exercised her right to grow potted plants with the addition of an attractive stone bench to enjoy the elevated position of Swift Cottage.

The property is sold with no onward chain with the seller prepared to sell the cottage fully furnished if desired.

Located in the historic and prosperous town of Malmesbury, the cottage is located within proximity of a plethora of amenities as well as fantastic road networks. With easy access to the popular High Street, in addition to the picturesque River Avon, the popular local community is a draw for those relocating to the area, in addition to a thriving tourist hotspot.
