This is a beautifully presented four bedroom cottage which has been refurbished with considerable care and attention to detail. The period character has been retained with open fireplaces, stone mullion windows and some original flooring. The traditional style is complimented by exceptional design and quality fixtures and fittings in the superb kitchen/breakfast room and bathrooms.
On the ground floor the impressive fitted kitchen and breakfast room really does feel like the hub of the house, with its heated flagstone floor and ample space for a farmhouse style table and comfy sofas. From the kitchen a door leads through to the cosy sitting room with open fire and window overlooking the front garden and to the rear a door leads through to the boot room and cloakroom with WC.
To the first floor there are four bedrooms, three of which share a family bathroom. The master bedroom has a stylish ensuite wet room with heated limestone floor, and slate tiled walls.
Grounds & Gardens
The cottage sits back from the lane, with a gravel parking area to the front and steps leading to the front door. The garden at the front is set out in a more formal fashion with box hedging, gravel paths and stone walling. A natural stone path leads around the side to a flagstone patio and enclosed rear garden. The rear garden is laid mostly to lawn with gravel and flagstone paths leading to a stone outbuilding with covered storage, a summerhouse with mains power, a log store and chicken run. Planning permission has been granted to erect an outbuilding in the far corner to provide a home office or further garden storage.
The property is located in a quiet road within a conservation area, within what is considered to be one of the prettiest villages in the area; period houses and cottages arranged around a picturesque village green with duck pond and a noted inn.
The village itself is well placed with excellent road communications providing easy access to the neighbouring centres of Chippenham and Corsham, catering for most day to day requirements with the larger centres of Swindon and Bristol and the Georgian city of Bath all within easy motoring distance via the A4 and M4. There are mainline rail services at Chippenham (Paddington about 75 minutes). There is a good choice of both state and private schooling in the area and those with interests in country and leisure pursuits are well catered for in the region.
From Chippenham proceed on the A4 Bath Road and at the Cross keys traffic light junction turn right signed to Biddestone. Proceed into the village turning left just after the duck pond, into Church Road. After a short distance turn right into Church Row where the property is located on the right hand side.
