This pretty property which is constructed of whitewashed stone under a thatched roof is full of character and retains many period features. It is situated in an elevated position in the middle of a village which is conveniently placed for all the amenities and accessibility of Swindon and the M4. The kitchen and bathroom would benefit from some updating but both are a good size being situated in an extension which was added sometime post war. The dining room has a super inglenook fireplace, ceiling beams and access to understairs storage. A small hallway to the front door links the dining room and sitting room and this is of a generous size with views over the rear garden. It too has a lovely inglenook fireplace. Enclosed stairs with a thumb latch door lead to the first floor where there is an open plan room, leading onto the bedroom
Garden and grounds
The gardens which are mainly laid to lawn run around three sides of the property. There are areas of flower beds and borders as well as an apple tree and soft fruit bushes. There is a thatched area used for storage which is accessible from both the front and rear of the property. A gravel driveway provides parking for several vehicles.
