Property Details

2 1 1
A splendid chance to purchase a charming mid terraced stone cottage with two double bedrooms, presented to the market with the advantage of no onward chain and situated in a quiet street just a stone's throw from the centre of this popular Wiltshire town. The cottage is ideally placed within walking distance to the primary school, recreational grounds, dentist and doctor surgeries as well as the shops and boasts wonderful views of Whitesheet from the first floor. We believe that the cottage was built in the mid 1800's and was once the town's sweet shop. It has been owned by the current sellers since 1988 - during this time it has been a much loved family home and in more recent years has been rented out providing an income. This delightful property would make a great first time home or family home, as well as providing a weekend retreat, as well as meeting many other criteria. The cottage retains character features, such as pane glass windows with deep sills, fireplaces and exposed beams and benefits from good ceiling heights. Catering for modern day expectations there is gas fired central heating to radiators via a back boiler. It is absolutely essential to see this property to really appreciate the well proportioned rooms and the location and an early viewing is highly recommended to avoid missing out on the opportunity to own this lovely home.
