Property Summary

A detached property with great potential for renovation/redevelopment (subject to the necessary consents), with a garden of 0.46 acres. Situated in a truly rural location on the edge of the quiet hamlet of Garsdon; approximately three and a half miles to the east of Malmesbury. The ground floor accommodation comprises: entrance hall, cloakroom, kitchen, dining room and sitting room. On the first floor are two double bedrooms, a single bedroom and the bathroom. Energy Performance Rating: Current-38 Potential-84.

The main house is of rendered elevations under a concrete tile roof. To the rear is what appears to be an original wash-house with an old cast iron fireplace; the walls are of Cotswold stone and the roof is of similar materials to the main dwelling. The dwelling was renovated several years ago, but has been unoccupied for some time and provides the perfect opportunity for a buyer looking for a project.

The house is situated in a 0.46 acre plot adjacent to the quiet, Garsdon to Brinkworth/Braydon road. The large south east facing garden is now overgrown, but is stocked with a wide range of native trees, fruit trees and ornamental shrubs – and is bounded on three sides by a mature native hedgerow. A pedestrian gateway gives access to the front of the house and there is a larger (overgrown) gateway further along the garden. Vehicular access is via a gateway to the driveway at the rear of the house.

Garsdon is approximately three and a half miles, by road, from the centre of the ancient market town of Malmesbury, which has a busy High Street and offers a wide range of shops and services, including Waitrose, Co-op and Aldi supermarkets. The larger towns of Swindon, Chippenham and Cirencester are all easily accessible by road. Junction 16 of the M4 Motorway is about twelve miles to the south east and main line rail services are available from Swindon, Chippenham and Kemble.
