Full Details

The Property
This substantial period home dates from the late 1800's and has an attractive stone front facade with bay windows, with brick additions to the rear. The house has been much improved by the current owners during the last 18 years. The rooms are of excellent proportions with period features on display throughout. The large stone barn has potential for a home office or annex, subject to obtaining any necessary consent.

The Accommodation
There is a stone bonnet over the front door which leads into a hall with parquet flooring and the staircase off. On the right is the sitting room with arched recesses either side of the open fireplace which has a period surround and pine floorboards. The dining room on the left has built-in cupboards and shelves either side of the fireplace and, like the sitting room, has wood flooring and a bay window. The inner hall has an under stair cupboard and a linen cupboard, plus a secondary staircase. The adjacent shower room has been refitted in recent years. Off the inner hall is a large conservatory with wood flooring and double doors into the garden. Leading off is a plant/utility room with the boiler and water softener. Adjacent to the back staircase is a library/snug with exposed ceiling timbers and slate flooring which continues into the dining area and beyond. A double sided wood burner serves both areas. The family room beyond has a vaulted ceiling and double doors into the garden. A wooden spiral staircase leads to a mezzanine level over the snug which provides a useful study/hobbies room. A wide opening from the family room leads to the well equipped kitchen with all the usual appliances. Accessed from the split level landing there is a well appointed family bathroom with separate shower enclosure. The main bedroom has extensive built-in wardrobes and, like the second bedroom, has a bay window with seat. The third bedroom has two built-in cupboards and a shelved recess and a door to the secondary staircase, the other side of which is a further double bedroom.

At the front, a wrought iron gate and railings lead to a flagged path to the front door. There are areas of landscaped garden either side of the path, including box and yew hedging, together with shrubs and trees. Twin wooden gates to the left of the house lead to a gravelled drive with parking for several cars. Adjoining the family room are paved and gravelled areas ideal for alfresco entertaining. The large stone barn has power and light connected and is sub-divided into two sections, with three stable doors in the side elevation. Beyond the barn is a terraced garden with low cotswold stone walls, mainly laid to lawn and afforded privacy by laurel hedging and close boarded fencing. There are well stocked borders and several trees including a productive apple tree.

Mains water, electricity and drainage are connected. The oil fired boiler in the plant room supplies central heating and hot water. EV charging point. Council Tax Band F - £2,854.17 payable for 2022/23. EPC rating F-31.

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.
