Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 3

A terraced 3 bedroom cottage (935 sq ft) in need of updating, with a large rear garden,

in a semi-rural hamlet between Malmesbury and Cirencester.

The Property

This terraced home is one of three built in 1881 and is in need of updating. It has been let for the last 28 years and now requires comprehensive renovation. There are gardens to front and rear, with the latter wrapping around the rear of No. 1 to create a large garden. The kitchen extension was added some 50 years ago and there are useful outbuildings adjoining the rear, that could be incorporated into the living accommodation, or enlarged, subject to obtaining the necessary planning consent.

The Accommodation

The front door leads into a porch with staircase off. The sitting room has a fireplace with a log burning stove. The side lobby has an under-stair cupboard and external door. It opens into the kitchen which has a pantry off. On the first floor are three bedrooms and a bathroom.


The front garden has a stone wall to the road and a lawn with path to the front door, and a side alleyway, providing useful access to the rear garden without going through the house. At the rear, the first section of garden measures about 21.34m by 6.83m (70' by 22'4 ) and is enclosed on both sides. There is a useful pile of Cotswold stone adjacent to the greenhouse and beyond the garden wraps around No. 1 and extends to about 36.58m by 12.19m (120' by 40').
