With a Bath stone façade under a stone tile roof this beautifully presented three bedroom Grade II Listed end of terrace cottage enjoys a most pleasant position on the edge of the village with views to the front over the surrounding countryside.
On entering the cottage, one immediately senses the style and character this property has to offer. With a plethora of traditional features throughout including flagstone floors, beams, working shutters to the traditional casement windows and window seats.
To the front the main reception room is a light, bright, generous size room with a fireplace housing a wood burning stove. The two pretty windows to the front, overlooking the lane, both have working shutters and a window seat to allow you to take full advantage of the edge of village location and rural outlook.
A glazed door leads through to the kitchen / breakfast room, which, having been replaced by the current owner in 2013, now provides an excellent range of mellow toned wall and base units under a granite work surface. There is plenty of working area around the built in appliances and a breakfast bar with space for a couple of high stools. Doors from the kitchen lead to the dining room to the rear of the property and to the side, through to the boot room with a wc. The dining room is a lovely space for entertaining and with double doors opening onto the sunken patio certainly brings the outside in.
Stairs from the sitting room lead to the first floor, where there are two good size bedrooms to the front elevation, therefore having the benefit of the views and a smaller room to the rear, (currently fitted with wardrobes to provide a dressing room). The main bathroom is fitted with a walk in shower with a glass screen, basin with vanity unit and a wc, the floor and shower walls and bathroom floor are tiled with light grey tiles to complete the clean lines and modern style, complementing the décor and finish throughout.
Grounds & Gardens
Outside the rear garden has a sunken patio with a stone wall and steps to the main garden, which is mainly laid to lawn with stone wall and panel fences securing the boundary and to the far end a kitchen garden with raised beds and green house.
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.
From Chippenham proceed in a westerly direction along
the A420 through Ford and The Shoe and as you approach Marshfield take the first turning on the left into the village. Follow the road and turn left just passed The Lord Nelson pub continuing along the lane and fork left again into East End. The property is on the left identified by our For Sale board.
