The Property

Kingswall House is a substantial family house constructed in the 1950's by the craftsman builder of the day, Hiders of Malmesbury. Originally built for his own occupation, they never occupied the property and the current owners are only the second since it was built. It is conveniently located on the edge of Malmesbury, with country views, and yet is only a short walk from the High Street. The current owner has replaced the kitchen, virtually all the windows and added the conservatory.

The Accommodation

The accommodation is well laid out over two floors with the principal rooms taking advantage of the open south-westerly rear aspect. Leading off the hall is a large sitting room with a Minster fireplace. Folding doors connect to the adjacent dining room, which has French doors opening onto a small balcony. Further double doors lead into a conservatory, which has an abundance of natural light from three sides. At the front is the triple aspect kitchen, with a Lacanche range cooker set into the original kitchen fireplace. There are good fitted cupboards with an integrated dishwasher and granite work surfaces. Beyond the sitting room is a dual aspect snug with a bay window and a fireplace. Adjacent is a good sized shower room. On the first floor, the master bedroom has extensive fitted wardrobes and an original fireplace. There are three further bedrooms, two of which are dual aspect. The family bathroom has a mixer tap with shower attachment.

Outside

The house is approached across a block-paved area with off road parking for two cars, and access to the garages. To the rear, is a large lawned garden, which faces south-west. There is an external boiler house and a summerhouse, and a lovely terrace adjoining the conservatory. Beneath the detached garage is a large storeroom/potting shed.
