About this property
**DETACHED FAMILY HOME**VERSATILE ACCOMMODATION OVER THREE FLOORS**USEFUL OUTBUILDINGS**SOUTH FACING GARDEN**
The Fox is a substantial detached family home standing in a central position allowing easy access to the award winning secondary school, the town and all local amenities. Built in the early 1990's by a renowned local builder, the current owners have made a number of significant improvements over recent years to include a thoughtfully designed loft conversion, new kitchen, bathroom, en suite, double glazed windows and solar PV. The versatile and well proportioned interior flows around a central reception hallway with a double aspect sitting room, dining room and conservatory. A door from the hallway opens into a spacious kitchen/breakfast room with separate utility room and cloakroom. The first floor boasts a spacious landing, master bedroom with an en suite dressing room and a shower room, two further double bedrooms and a family bathroom. Stairs from the landing rise up to the second floor landing with two further bedrooms, one of which is currently being used as a study. There is easy access to useful eaves storage space and a toilet with wash hand basin. A large patio to the rear of the property opens to a large, enclosed south facing garden being laid to lawn and bordered by adjacent fruit bushes, vegetable plots and a recently built greenhouse (14'x6'). A particular feature of the garden is a large, detached outbuilding (17'6 x 15) which offers the potential to be used for a variety of different purposes. A blocked paved driveway to the front with ample off street parking approaches a large single integral garage with electronically operated roller door.
The property is conveniently located allowing easy access for both primary and secondary schools. The hilltop town of Malmesbury is officially recognised as England's oldest borough. Situated on the edge of the Cotswolds, surrounded by two branches of the River Avon, it boasts buildings of golden Cotswold stone and beautiful river walks. Famous for its ancient Abbey and elaborate 15th century Market Cross, the town may well have history round every corner but is also bursting with life, enjoying excellent independent shops, a Waitrose, charming cosy pubs, friendly cafes, regular farmers' markets and a busy local events schedule. The establishment of the Dyson design and development headquarters on the edge of the town means that Malmesbury is now a centre for technical innovation, allowing the town to truly describe itself as both ancient and modern. Malmesbury is five miles north of the M4 (Junction 17) so within easy commuting distance of Bristol, Bath and Swindon. London is approximately 1½ hours away by car or train.
