Old Town
Elevated on a hilltop, it has an individual character, with views across Wiltshire countryside and is a most sought after residential location. It is one of the oldest parts of Swindon, existing from well before the Domesday book with architecture spanning centuries and yet currently undergoing a renaissance with quality refurbishment of listed buildings and new wealth from Swindon's successful economy. A choice of wine bars, restaurants and street cafes are a short walk, health care is met by locally by Old Town Surgery or, within two and a half miles, the new Great Western Hospital. Lawn Woods/Park and Town Gardens (with aviary, concert bowl, rose garden and cafe) provide peace and a relaxing environment. Banks varied specialist shops and a comprehensive supermarket complete Old Towns' self-contained character.

The Property
A very special, detached, family home designed by the current owners and having remained in the same family since. Constructed in 1950 during the brick shortage the original property provided sitting/dining room, kitchen and garage with three bedrooms and family bathroom.

The property was subsequently extended to add an enclosed porch which opens on to the generous reception hall with original parquet flooring, stair rising to the first floor with a large under stairs storage cupboard. This central hallway provides access to bay fronted sitting room with feature brick fireplace and open to a snug with glazed, double doors providing access to the rear garden; the kitchen is well appointed with a range of base and eye level units and has a rear porch which is a useful larder/utility area. The original garage has been transformed to a separate dining room enjoying a double aspect. There is also a cloakroom with close coupled w.c., and wash hand basin.

The first floor provides a good sized, bay fronted, master bedroom with an array of built in wardrobes, cupboards and drawers together with two further bedrooms which each benefit from built in storage. There is also a family bathroom and a separate toilet and access to the airing cupboard and loft.

Accessed from the enclosed porch. Up and over door to front. Window to side and personal door to the enclosed porch. Light and power.

The property is positioned on a generous plot with wonderfully mature gardens to the front and the rear.

The frontage is enclosed by a historic stone wall to the front and mature trees and hedges to the side. A tarmacadam driveway leads to the garage and front entrance porch of the property with the remaining garden laid to lawn with deep, well stocked, shrub borders. Gated access to the side of the property leads to the rear garden.

The rear garden is very private providing a paved sun terrace leading on to a formal lawn which is enclosed by mature trees, shrubs and flower borders. Stepping stones lead across the lawn and on to an enclosed vegetable garden at the end with productive vegetable beds. There is gated access on to the large green beyond the property ideal for dog walking. Summerhouse.

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 the property is freehold.
