The property has been extended to the rear and side of the property and created a more functional entrance off the driveway. This entrance lobby is accessed via a timber boarded door and has tiled flooring - this is a perfect entrance to welcome guests through as well as muddy boots and paws. Located off this room is a cloakroom, with low level WC and pedestal sink.
The lobby leads into the heart of the cottage and the real wow factor an open plan kitchen/diner/family room with exposed ceiling beams and stonework. The whole room is floored in natural limestone tiles, with underfloor warming.

Also off the kitchen/dining room there is a very handy utility room with base and wall units together with plumbing and space for a washer and dryer. From here a doorway leads to a dual aspect room currently used as a playroom. Again, this could be used for a variety of other uses to suit your lifestyle and the French doors give access to the patio and garden.

Off Crab Mill Lane, to the side of the property is the driveway, recently laid with block paving and landscaped with a variety of plants and fruit trees and parking for approximately four cars. Through a five bar gate the drive continues to a detached garage. The rear garden can also be accessed from here through a double gate within a timber fence. Attached to the side of the garage and accessed from the rear garden is a storage building housing the biomass unit. The garden is private and a great entertaining area but if you desire to improve upon this the current vendor has been granted planning permission to extend the cottage further off the playroom with a new utility and fabulous outdoor entertainment area with outdoor kitchen area (ref Wiltshire Council 17/003680/FUL).
