The entrance porch leads directly into the living room, which has a baxi boiler within the fireplace, which could be replaced with a modern boiler elsewhere and have the chimney reinstated for an open fire or log burner (STP). The kitchen diner is the rear, has an understairs cupboard and door to the rear courtyard. On the first floor there are two very similar size double bedrooms, the rear one enjoying views of Swindon's well known landmark; The David Murray John Tower.

The McArthurGlen Designer outlet centre is access via an old internal Railway tunnel within a short distance of the town, offering all your designer brand needs along with modern eateries in its food hall and farmers market. Nearby Old Town is the historic older part of Swindon which is popular for its eclectic mix of bars, shops and restaurants amongst the practical amenities that are always handy to have on the doorstep. In addition to this, there are many walks to be enjoyed around one of the selection of public gardens and open countryside heading out to one of Swindon's old canal routes. The train station offers routes to London Paddington, accessing the capital in under the hour. The M4 motorway is also within 3.5 miles of the property roughly to either junction 15 or 16.
