Full Details

The Property
Quarry House is a cul-de-sac dating from the mid 1990's, and as the name suggests, was built on the site of the former village quarry. The original quarry master's house was converted into a pair of semi's and five new builds were strategically placed around the site, with each home having space and privacy. No 5 is deceptively spacious and offers excellent family sized accommodation. The house benefits from UPVC double glazing, with some of the windows having contemporary shutter blinds. A particular feature is the good sized and enclosed rear garden, which has been dog-proofed, and enjoys a sunny south-west facing aspect. The principal rooms on the ground floor all enjoy a dual aspect making them light and airy. There are country walks on the door step, and Malmesbury is conveniently close-by, just three miles distant.

The Accommodation
The UPVC front door leads into a tiled lobby with a glazed door into the hall. This has a staircase off with cupboard under, and a cloakroom adjacent. The sitting room has an open fireplace and double doors into the garden, while next door the dining room overlooks the driveway. The large L shaped kitchen/breakfast room has an island unit and double doors into the front garden. There is a built-in electric oven with separate grill, a hob and extractor over, while the fridge and dishwasher are integrated. Adjacent is the utility room with space for two under-counter appliances, an external door and an internal door to the garage. The U shaped landing has a study area and a cupboard housing the hot water cylinder. The master bedroom has a dressing area and an en suite shower. The second bedroom is dual aspect and also has a dressing room plus an en suite bathroom. There are three further bedrooms, two with built-in wardrobes, and a family bathroom with a useful store cupboard.

There is gated access both sides of the gravelled driveway. This provides parking for several cars, adjacent to the double garage, which has two electric doors, power, light and water. Adjoining the kitchen is a walled area of garden, laid to lawn with a tap and the oil tank. At the far side of the house is a gravelled area ideal for storage, which leads to a paved patio adjoining the sitting room. The rear garden is laid to lawn, and is enclosed by mature hedging and shrubs.

Mains water, electricity and drainage are connected. The Grant oil fired boiler is in the garage. Council Tax band G - £3,293.29 payable for 2022/23. EPC rating D-60.

Corston lies approximately two and a half miles south of Malmesbury and has a church, village hall and public house. The nearby thriving town of Malmesbury has a comprehensive range of shops including a Waitrose, a library, museum and a sports centre with swimming pool, plus there are various cultural activities including frequent events at the lovely old Abbey. The proximity of the M4 motorway provides good communications with Swindon, Bath, Bristol and London and there are mainline train services from Chippenham and Kemble to Paddington in just over an hour.
