A charming character cottage offering well proportioned and adaptable accommodation with three double sized bedrooms, boasting a good sized sunny and private garden and located in the conservation area of the small and pretty Wiltshire village of Zeals. The property 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. We believe that the property is over two hundred years old with a more modern historic and sympathetic extension to the side and was once a wool shop. The cottage has been a much loved and happy home to our sellers for about ten years. During this time it has been well maintained and improved. The kitchen units have been replaced with solid wood doors, the shower room and bathroom have been fitted with stylish contemporary suites, a bespoke new hardwood front door has recently been fitted and the oil fired central heating boiler was replaced within the last five years. In addition, the front roof has been re-tiled, felted and battened, a velux window installed on the landing and the garden has been landscaped. There is scope to created an en-suite, from the office attached to bedroom one, if required. The property also boasts character features, such as fireplaces, exposed ceiling beam and a leaded light inlay to the double glazed windows. Viewing vital to appreciate what this delightful cottage has to offer.
