DESCRIPTION This very attractive semi-detached period home is discreetly located in the heart of the popular village of Sherston set away from the street down a drive behind a five-bar gate. The property has been substantially yet sympathetically extended retaining charming character features such as stone mullion windows, inglenook fireplaces and exposed timber beams believed to date back to the 18th Century. Constructed of Cotswold stone under a tiled roof, the property is very deceptive from the front elevation with the Tardis like accommodation spanning to a very generous 2,368 sq.ft. over three floors.
On the ground floor there are three good-sized reception rooms in addition to a study. At the heart of the home there is a light filled kitchen/dining room which is split level with the kitchen area fitted with painted timber units and a Rayburn, steps lead up to the dining area with a skylight over. There is a useful utility room which provides side access. The traditional living room is arranged to the front with a wood burning stove inset a stone fireplace whilst the two further reception rooms both have French doors spilling into the garden. On the first floor, there is a spacious landing serving two double bedrooms and a family bathroom with a roll top bath and separate shower. There are two further bedrooms on the top floor which share a Jack and Jill style en-suite bathroom, again fitted with both shower and bath.
The main house is complemented by an excellent stone-built outbuilding set within the garden which benefits from power and lighting. There is a workshop adjacent to a studio room which could make an ideal home office if required. A loft ladder accesses storage above.
The pretty garden is arranged at the rear landscaped over patio stone terraces and a level lawn bound by well-established shrub borders. The driveway allows for vehicular access to park in 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 conveniently located on the edge of the Cotswolds. Sherston has a thriving community and offers 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, with its excellent food and friendly atmosphere. The facilities and amenities in Sherston more than adequately provide for everyday need with a whole host of societies and clubs meeting on a regular basis offering entertainment and social events for young and old alike.
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.
