58 High Street is a charming cottage full of original character, situated in the centre of this popular village. On entering the property via the tiled entrance porch, there are double wooden doors leading into the sitting room which is the heart of the house, with an impressive stone fireplace complete with wood burning stove and a window seat. An inner hall with a door to the cellar leads through to the kitchen/breakfast room which enjoys a flagstone floor, Shaker style units and space for a table and chairs. This is adjacent to a lobby/utility area which has a stable door leading into the rear garden. Also on the ground floor is the family bathroom. Upstairs there are 2 bedrooms, the master also having a window seat.
Externally there is an attractive, walled garden, accessed via a private pathway from the back door, it is enclosed with a Cotswold stone wall and enjoys a good degree of privacy.
This vibrant village offers a perfect combination of modern convenience with traditional rural living. The unspoilt high street is made up of predominantly period homes and essential amenities such as a village store and post office, butchers, tea room, newsagents and pretty furniture shop. One of the major features of this active village is the popular primary school which was re-built just a few years ago and is now housed in a smart contemporary building offering modern facilities. There is also a good choice of both state and private schooling in the area. Also within the village is a choice of public houses as well as the village church and GP's surgery, and those with an interest in country and leisure pursuits are well catered for in the region.
The village is located approximately eight miles North East of Bath and convenient access links to the M4 (junction 18 Bath or 17 Chippenham). Bath and Chippenham provide comprehensive shopping facilities and amenities including mainline rail services (Paddington about 75 minutes from Chippenham, with the mainline to London being electrified this should improve the journey time from Chippenham to around an hour).
Excellent road communications provide easy access to the major employment centres of Bristol and Swindon and, via the M4 (J17 & J18), London and the West Country.
