The main house is built of Cotswold stone elevations under a concrete tile roof. On the western end is a red brick extension with a concrete tile roof and a flat roofed garage beyond. On the northern gable is a small conservatory of reconstituted stone and PVCu double glazed units. The ground floor accommodation comprises: hall, study, kitchen (with an oil-fired Rayburn) and dining area, spacious dual aspect living room (with a woodburner), utility room, shower room, cloakroom and small conservatory. On the first floor are two double bedrooms and a bathroom. Leading off the main bedroom is a large storage area, with restricted headroom.
A well-stocked cottage garden runs around the western and eastern sides of the cottage, and behind the dwelling is a large gravel and grass surfaced yard/parking area with a five-bar gate leading onto York Lane. At one end of the yard is the red brick and slate-tiled pony-stable block with a fenced and paved area at the front. Behind the stable is a fish pond, adjacent to a secluded seating area which overlooks the fields to the north and west. Several Ash and Horse-Chestnut trees create a shaded area at the south west end of the yard, where there is also a large open-fronted vehicle port.
The property is situated near the end of York Lane, which is a quiet no-through-road on the Wootton Basset side of the village of Brinkworth.
Claimed to be the longest village in England, Brinkworth has a primary school, parish church, public house and a village hall. A much wider variety of shops and services are available in the ancient market town of Malmesbury, about five miles to the west. The larger towns of Royal Wootton Bassett Swindon, Chippenham and Cirencester are all easily accessible by road. Junction 16 of the M4 Motorway is about five miles to the east and main line rail services are available from Swindon and Chippenham.
