An attractive and beautifully presented three bedroom detached family house, well placed for Swindon and the M4, believed to originate in the 1800s and with later additions in approximately half an acre of garden, with a detached, self-contained one bedroom annexe.
The subject of modernisation and improvement by the current owners, this interesting brick and tile detached cottage style house retains a wealth of character and offers beautifully presented and versatile accommodation. Entered from the enclosed front porch, the living space is open plan with a dual aspect sitting room, with beams and a fireplace, which is open through the dining area to a modern fitted kitchen. This has French doors to a garden terrace, ideal for dining and entertaining, oak work surfaces with a fitted butler sink and spaces for appliances of choice. A farmhouse door leads from the kitchen to a delightful, timber glazed sitting room which has doors to the garden.
On the first floor, the principal bedroom has French doors which open onto a balcony and a far reaching outlook across fields to the west. There are two further double bedrooms and a luxury bathroom comprising bath with both a shower over, and hand-held shower, fitted basin and a WC.
The self-contained annexe provides great flexibility to the overall accommodation, providing additional family living space, a place for visiting guests to stay, or a potential opportunity to earn an income. Entered through a double glazed conservatory sitting room and then to a large, well-appointed kitchen and dining room, the living space is open, light and has an airy feel. A spiral staircase leads up to from the kitchen/dining room to the bedroom. The bathroom is tiled and has a free standing roll-top bath.
The garden is enclosed by fencing and hedging with a westerly outlook and is predominantly laid to lawn which is interspersed with shrubs. There are areas of raised decking and seating adjacent to the house, a gravelled terrace, shrub planting, a garden shed and gated, paved off street parking.
Please note that the seller is in the process of formalising the position of the garden boundary.
