**CHARMING CHARACTER COTTAGE**RECENTLY REVOVATED**LARGE LANDSCAPED WEST FACING GARDEN**USEFUL DETACHED GARDEN ROOM**

A charming Grade II listed two bedroom period cottage which has been sympathetically renovated by the current owners in recent years to include a small ground floor extension, newly fitted kitchen, utility room and bathroom. The interior is arranged over three floors and retains a wealth of inherent character and charm including exposed stonework, timber features and natural stone floors. The beautifully presented interior comprises a sitting room with feature stone fireplace, a fitted kitchen with a range of integrated appliances and utility room. A stunning oak staircase from the kitchen leads up to the first floor with a double bedroom and spacious bathroom with free standing bath and a separate shower. Stairs from the landing rise up to an attic bedroom which is currently used as a study. Externally the large rear garden is a particular feature of the cottage, enjoying a delightful south west facing aspect. A large limestone patio extends from the rear of the cottage bordered by attractive raised beds, a useful timber storage shed and decked seating area. A pathway continues along the garden to a large detached outbuilding which could be used as an office or garden room. There are two rented parking spaces located a hundred yards from the cottage which can be transferred to the new owners.

SITUATION

Conveniently located in the heart of this historic town, yet within a short distance of country walks and the picturesque River Avon. 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 1 hours away by car or train.
