Situated just a two minute walk from Sherston’s High Street amenities, this pretty Cotswold stone period cottage has been beautifully refurbished
DESCRIPTION This pretty Cotswold stone period cottage has been beautifully modernised throughout while retaining period charm and features. The property has been sympathetically updated to a modern specification including replacement windows, a new oil fired central heating system and new plumbing and electrics. Internal alterations improve the flow of the cottage, which totals 1,112 sq.ft arranged over two floors.
On the ground floor, a side entrance hall has tiled natural stone flooring and provides access through to the garden. Access from the hall also leads into the charming living room which features natural oak flooring. The original exposed stone fireplace has been lovingly restored and fitted with a wood burning stove. The living room opens onto the kitchen/dining room with natural stone tiled flooring and an Aga cooker.
The Kitchen has soft-close fitted units with oak worktops, a Belfast sink and double door leading onto the garden.
On the first floor there are two generous double bedrooms. The master has a dressing room and an en-suite shower room. A family bathroom off the landing completes the layout.
The property is immaculately presented throughout and benefits from a high efficiency Grant Vortex external combi boiler and ‘tado’ smart heating system controls designed to reduce energy consumption.
The enclosed south-east facing garden to the rear of the property provides steps up to a raised patio, lawn and large timber shed and the oil tank beyond.
On street parking is readily available to the front of the property.
SITUATION The beautiful, ancient and much sought after village of Sherston with its broad High Street and historic stone houses is set in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Sherston benefits from a thriving community offering a host of societies, clubs and many facilities, including church, primary school, doctor’s surgery, post office & general stores, hairdresser, wine shops and two pubs including the highly regarded 16th century Rattlebone Inn.
Schooling locally is second to none, with very good state and independent schools providing transport to and from the village on a daily basis. Close by are the market towns of Malmesbury and Tetbury which are both approximately 5 miles away. Malmesbury is reputed to be the oldest Borough in the country dating back to the 11th Century.
Both towns offer a wider range of shops, services, schooling and leisure facilities. There are main line stations to London-Paddington at Kemble (14 miles) and Chippenham (12 miles) whilst Junctions 17 & 18 of the M4 are both within 15 minutes’ drive providing convenient access to Bath, Bristol and Swindon.
