Cottage style gardens with substantial shed and garage.

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 refurbishments of listed buildings and new wealth from Swindon's successful economy. A choice of wine bars, restaurants and street cafes are a short walk, healthcare 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 stunning and impressive mid terrace family home which provides in excess 1750 sq ft of living space, is beautifully finished and located on what is regarded as one of Old Town's premier roads. This wonderful family house also benefits from a pretty cottage style garden, substantial shed and garage.

Upon entering the house you are greeted by a welcoming reception hall with original tiled flooring and leading to a double reception room with open bay and original sash windows, cast iron Victorian fireplace and Welsh slate hearth complimented with solid oak flooring. The ground floor also hosts a third reception room with feature fireplace, a laundry room, and a bespoke kitchen by John Lewis of Hungerford. Throughout this floor and the rest of the house you get a real sense of great character and a wealth of original features.

The first floor contains three double bedrooms which all benefit from exposed floor timbers; the principal bedroom and bedroom three both enjoy bay windows and original cast iron fireplaces with tiled hearths. The family bathroom has a traditional three piece white suite and is completed with handmade Marlborough tiling.

The second floor houses a further bedroom with en-suite comprising three piece white bathroom suite finished with Laura Ashley tiles.

The rear garden is charming, the current Vendor is clearly a keen gardener.
