Location

Malmesbury lies close to the border of Wiltshire and Gloucestershire, 14 miles south of Cirencester and 10 miles north of Chippenham, with Swindon 23 miles to the east and Bath 24 miles to the west. It has a good selection of shops including a Waitrose supermarket, a regular farmers' market, a library, museum, leisure centre with pool, two primary schools and a High Performing Academy secondary school. J17 of the M4, 5 miles south, provides access to the area's major employment centres and there are trains to Paddington in just over an hour from Chippenham, Kemble and Swindon.

The Property

This truly unique property is built within the former walled kitchen garden of the adjacent Burton Hill House, which has just been restored and returned to a single private dwelling. The Garden House has been built by a well regarded local builder in a period style with natural stone and brick, beneath a slate covered roof. The overhanging roof and brick pillars are inset with bi-fold doors and large sash windows to maximise the natural light. The rooms all have excellent proportions and there is high quality engineered oak flooring throughout, apart form the utility and bathrooms which have tiled floors.

The Accommodation

The front door leads into an L shaped hall with conservation roof light, light tube and access to the loft. On the right is a coat hanging cupboard, with the cloakroom beyond and a shelved linen cupboard around the corner. The large kitchen/breakfast/living room is a delightful feature and has three sets of bi-fold doors onto the garden. There are extensive units with a Rangemaster dual fuel cooker and extractor over, a large integrated fridge and separate freezer, plus a dishwasher. The main work surfaces are Minerva with a copper fleck and include a one piece sink unit. The island unit/breakfast bar has an oak top with secondary sink and overhanging space for numerous stools. Extensive high and low level lighting. There is a shelved larder cupboard off plus a utility room with space for two under counter appliances and the concealed gas boiler. Off the hall is a study/bed 3 with a circular port-hole window. The master bedroom has four sets of built-in double wardrobes and a large bathroom with separate shower and twin basins. The second bedroom has two built-in wardrobes and a shelved cupboard, plus an en suite shower room.

Outside

There is ample parking space on the drive for numerous cars and an application has been submitted, but not yet determined for a double garage. A solid door set in a high stone wall leads into the garden which has a curved path leading to the front door, two areas of lawn and a base for a shed. The whole is enclosed by high brick and stone walls affording complete privacy. External tap, power and lighting.

Services

All mains connected. The gas boiler is in the utility room with wet under floor heating throughout.
