DESCRIPTION This very pretty mid terraced Cotswold stone cottage dates back to the 18th Century and is conveniently located just a short walk from the High Street of the highly sought-after village of Sherston with a range of amenities available. The property has a wealth of character and charm throughout with a number of original features including exposed beams, flagstone flooring and sash windows. The spacious accommodation is arranged over three floors and extends in all to 1,283 sq.ft.
The entrance hall has built in storage and a cloakroom off, with double doors opening to the good-sized living room with an exposed stone fireplace incorporating a wood burning stove. At the rear is a recently updated kitchen/dining room which has been thoughtfully re-fitted with white gloss units providing ample storage and a range of built in appliances. On the first floor, there are two double bedrooms with built in storage and a wet room family bathroom which has a roll top Victorian style bath with showerhead over, off which is a laundry room with plumbing and space for both a washing machine and dryer. The top floor master suite has beautiful exposed beams and wardrobe space along with a stylish newly fitted en-suite shower room. The property is heated through a Thermaflow electric combi boiler whilst hot water is also provided by solar panels.
Externally, there is a small raised garden to the front laid easy to maintain. The west-facing rear garden is a particularly attractive feature, having been landscaped with a timber decking patio off from the kitchen French doors, there are stone terraced flower beds with steps at the centre leading up to a good-sized lawn which has a good degree of privacy surrounded by mature shrubs. There is a timber shed and a stone built shed at the rear.
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&146; drive providing convenient access to Bath, Bristol and Swindon.
