About this property
'Swift Cottage' is one of just 5 properties being built by a local developer within the highly regarded village of East Kennett. This two double bedroom terraced home will have a high specification finish throughout including an air source heat pump and under floor heating (wet system). Internally a large hallway with a painted staircase leads up to a large insulated loft space with great potential, thereby appealing to both downsizers and growing families alike. The fabulous16ft dual aspect sitting room is vaulted with a feature fireplace and a door out to the garden. There is a contemporary kitchen/diner by 'Howdens.' In addition there are two double bedrooms, an en suite shower room to the master bedroom and a family bathroom both with quality sanitary ware from 'Panoramic Bathrooms'. Outside the property will benefit from 2 parking spaces, a seeded garden and an Indian sandstone sun terrace. 'The Gallops' is positioned at the end of a no through road, neighbouring the pretty Victorian 'Christ Church' and with wonderful west facing rural views to the rear towards East Kennett Long Barrow. This attractive site has been sympathetically designed to beautifully blend in with the existing farm buildings and cottages.
The Gallops is well located in the highly desirable village of East Kennett, approximately 5 miles west of Marlborough. The village is nestled within the fabulous countryside of the Marlborough Downs (an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty) and those with an interest in country or leisure pursuits are well catered for: the Marlborough Downs are noted for excellent walking. The historic Long Barrows of East and West Kennett are located on the edge of the village, with the popular World Heritage sites of Avebury and Silbury Hill also close by.
The market towns of Marlborough and Devizes offer a wide selection of amenities and communications in the area are excellent; the major commercial centres of Salisbury, Newbury and Swindon are all very accessible as is London and the West Country via the M4. Main line rail services are available in Swindon, or more locally at Pewsey or Great Bedwyn. There is a good choice of both state and private schooling in the area to include Kennet Valley School, Marlborough College and Dauntsey's School. East Kennett is also within the catchment area for St Johns Academy.
