Situation & Description
The property is situated just of the central High Street of this historic town and is convenient for all local amenities. Malmesbury is reputed to be the oldest borough in the country dating back to the 11th Century. The old and new blend perfectly in Malmesbury, narrow medieval streets, ancient monuments and historic gems are complemented by modern shopping, including Waitrose and quaint boutiques. This thriving pretty market town offers a wealth of buildings of architectural interest including its ancient Abbey, whilst also having a wide range of shops, services, schools and leisure facilities available.
Early tributaries of The River Avon pass around the town with pretty walks and the countryside close at hand. There are public transport services and good road access to the larger towns of Cirencester, Chippenham, Swindon, Bath and Bristol whilst the M4 junction 17 is only five miles south. Trains from Chippenham (10 miles) and Kemble (5 miles) link with London Paddington.
The Grade II listed cottage retains a wealth of character to include exposed ceiling beams and stonewalling. Accommodation comprises on the ground floor; living room and kitchen and on the first floor; landing, 2 bedrooms and a bathroom.
To the rear is an enclosed courtyard garden.
The cottage would make an excellent first-time property or ideal investment with a potential rental income in good order of about £850pcm (£10,200pa).
As you proceed up the High Street from Chippenham direction, the property is on the right.
