An opportunity to purchase a charming semi detached cottage style home with four double bedrooms, enjoying a good sized garden with an adjoining paddock of about half an acre and presented to the market with the advantage of no onward chain. The cottage is situated in the small and pretty Wiltshire village of Zeals and is within walking distance to the church, public house and small shop which provides every day essentials, a little further on at Bourton there is a petrol station with attached shop. Further facilities are available in Mere and Gillingham both within a short drive away. This delightful property has been the very much cherished and enjoyed home to our sellers for the last nine years During this time it has been exceedingly well cared for and improved with the addition of a bright dining area with double doors leading out to an alfresco entertainment space. In addition, oil fired central heating has been installed, the kitchen units have been replaced with modern soft closing cupboards and quartz work surfaces as well as some integrated appliances, a stylish and contemporary bathroom suite has been installed and an en-suite created. The property has also benefited from replacement internal doors, all the windows have been changed to uPVC in cottage style finish and the garden has been landscaped. It is imperative that this splendid home be viewed to truly appreciate what it has to offer - a great place as a taster for the Good Life with plenty of space to grow vegetables, keep chickens or other livestock or equally for a family where outdoor space is important.
