Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 4

A magnificent country cottage painstakingly restored and thoughtfully extended in recent years to a particularly high standard. The cottage, although not listed retains character and detail, typical of the period with a number of modern refinements, whilst providing spacious and comfortable accommodation arranged over three floors. The tastefully presented interior comprises a charming sitting room featuring exposed stonework and timber beams and a period open fireplace with wood burning stove. A door from the living room opens into an open plan kitchen/dining room and useful reading room, all rooms enjoying delightful views over the garden. The spacious first floor landing is currently being utilised as a home office together with two bedrooms and a family bathroom. Stairs from the landing lead up to two further attic bedrooms. Externally the delightful landscaped front gardens enjoys a sunny south facing aspect with a patio area extending to the full width of the cottage. There is an off road parking space directly in front of the garden.


The cottage stands in a tranquil position in this semi rural lane of predominantly period properties. Corston is a small village located midway between the M4 and the ancient town of Malmesbury which is reputed to be the oldest borough in the country dating back to the 11th Century. This thriving, pretty town offers a wealth of buildings of architectural interest, including its ancient Abbey, whilst also having a wide range of shops including a Waitrose, award winning schools and leisure facilities. Early tributaries of The River Avon pass around the town and pretty walks are close at hand. There are good road links to the larger towns of Cirencester, Chippenham, Swindon, Bath and Bristol whilst the M4 motorway junction 17 is only 2 miles to the south. A mainline railway service from Chippenham to London Paddington in approximately 1 hours.
