Property Details

3 1 1
Enjoying a tucked away, peaceful location with views of the church and Wiltshire Downs is this delightful semi detached family home presented to the market with the bonus of no onward chain. We believe that the property was built in the 1940/1950's and has been a very much cherished home to our sellers for over thirty three years. During this time it has been exceptionally well maintained and improved with the creation of a drive to the rear of the property, which is now the main entry, a useful boot/utility room has been added and gas fired central heating from a combination boiler was installed about three years ago. The walls and ceilings have also benefited from re-plastering and there are nearly all new carpets throughout. The property also benefits from uPVC double glazing, a multi fuel burner and bespoke kitchen units. This nicely proportioned home must be viewed to truly appreciate what is on offer and its location, which is just a short walk to the town centre where there is a Coop, post office, doctor and dentist surgeries and a selection of other facilities.
