***NO ONWARD CHAIN*** Overlooking a neighbouring private pond is this Grade ll listed semi-detached cottage, with a separate annexe building (currently housing the kitchen and a shower room), the main cottage has two receptions, two bedrooms and a bathroom, all in need of updating throughout.
Parking is a short walk away on a separate 0.17 acre plot with two timber outbuildings, it is thought there is potential for a carport, garageing or a potential dwelling subject to planning. The property sits within a conservation area.
Comprising two receptions, two bedrooms, bathroom. Annexe detached building housing kitchen and shower room. There is a dilapidated storm porch leading to the front door which opens into a dual width reception spanning the main part of the original ground floor, it is understood this room has been tanked to future proof the room from damp. There is a covered chimney stack to one end some three foot deep, the local chalkstone was used in the construction of these cottages and it is likely to have a small inglenook fireplace behind the boarding. A door leads through to a further reception with bay window directly overlooking a neighbouring private pond, this is a later addition, though the date is unknown, this space it is thought would make for an ideal kitchen with the potential to vault the ceiling. On the first floor there are two bedrooms and bathroom.
Outside the south west facing plot houses a further detached thatched building currently housing the kitchen and a shower room, both in need of fully replacing. A gate leads onto the public footpath looping the village (an in parts private) pond, a short walk leads to a further gated plot of 0.17 acre offering parking and two timber outbuildings. Offering various scope for any keen gardener, outbuilding expansion/alteration of even a potential additional dwelling, no planning has ever been sought and any buyer would need to make their own enquiries with Swindon Borough Council.
Agents note: If the intended purchase is to be made with a mortgage, it is highly advised to check with your lender prior to making arrangements to view the property that they would be accepting of the current kitchen being in a separate building to the main house.
