Property Details

3 2 2
A charming detached character thatched cottage with three double sized bedrooms, sitting in good sized grounds, backing onto fields and situated in the small, pretty Wiltshire village of Zeals. The cottage 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 and Gillingham has a mainline train station serving London Waterloo and the West Country. We believe that the original part of the cottage dates to the 1700s with a sympathetic addition completed tin the 19700s, which has created well proportioned bright accommodation. The cottage has been a very much loved and enjoyed home to our sellers for the last nine years. During this time it has been extremely well cared for and much improved to provide a contemporary home yet retaining its character features such as exposed timbers and fireplace with Bressumer beam. The cottage was completely re-wired and re-plumbed, floors have been levelled and kitchen units and bathroom suites have been tastefully replaced. This delightful cottage provides excellent country living and must be viewed to truly be appreciated.
