A fantastic opportunity to acquire a four bedroom Grade II listed character property on the High Street in the desirable location of Cricklade. Property briefly comprises: Sitting room, family room, kitchen/breakfast room, four bedrooms, family bathroom with separate W.C room, boot room together with an annexe to include studio room, kitchen and shower room. To the rear of the property there is a beautiful well-kept garden with gated access to the leasehold garage.

Cricklade is situated just to the south of the centre of Cricklade which itself lies to the south of the Wiltshire/Gloucestershire border in the Thames Valley. It is almost equidistant from Cirencester to the north, and Swindon to the south. It is an attractive old town with origins dating back to Roman Road from Silchester to Cirencester. By the 9th Century it had developed into an important Saxon settlement when the borough formed part of the Wessex fortifications against the Danes. The modern Cricklade provides a good range of local shopping and recreational facilities, as well as an infant school, a co-educational preparatory school and a local primary school. There is also a bank and two doctor's surgeries within walking distance of the house. The town has benefited greatly from having a by pass and the much improved A419, which is virtually dual carriageway its entire length, link the M4 at Swindon with the M5 at Gloucester. Both motorways are therefore very accessible, bringing London, The Midlands, Bristol and the South West into comfortable driving distance. By train, services from Swindon to London (Paddington) are scheduled at 55 minutes, to Bristol and Bath at 45 and 25 minutes respectively.

92 High Street is a well presented 17th Century Grade II listed, period property which has been thoughtfully and sympathetically extended in keeping with the original cottage to now include spacious and flexible living accommodation retaining a wealth of period features to include original beams, flagstone flooring and exposed brickwork.

To the ground floor a useful reception hall allows access to the generous sized dining/family room which in turn leads to the sitting room with an open fireplace with stone hearth inset with cast iron log burner. A door leads through to the open plan kitchen/breakfast room. The bespoke kitchen benefits from a range of matching base and eye-level units with granite worktops over inset with ceramic one and a half bowl sink unit, Range style oven with five gas hob and extractor over and space for white goods and integrated dishwasher. The kitchen is open plan to the breakfast area which also benefits from a cast iron log burner with oak flooring. A door leads through to the boot room which in turn leads out to a patio area linking the property to the annexe.

To the first floor there is an extended double bedroom and a further double bedroom benefitting from built in wardrobes with sliding doors. The beautiful bathroom has a four piece white suite with double ended bath, corner shower, W.C, and useful storage cupboards and vanity unit with basin inset together with an attractive deep set tiled window sill with velux window over.

To the second floor there are a further pair of double bedrooms with velux windows and built in wardrobes.

The property has a recently fitted Worcester boiler and attractive, replacement hardwood windows which have been secondary glazed to the front to alleviate noise levels from the High Street. Solid, internal, oak doors are a feature throughout.

Mains electricity, gas, water and mains drainage. Gas central heating. Telephone lines subject to the usual transfer regulations. (No tests to the suitability of services have been carried out and intending purchasers should commission their own tests if required).

We believe from the vendors that 92 high Street is a freehold property.

On leaving the A419 North take the first exit at the roundabout and proceed down ????, go over the Zebra crossing and turn right at the roundabout and 92 High Street can be found on the right hand side.
