    About this property

    • Herdsman's Cottage is a handsome natural stone and stone tiled late Victorian semi-detached cottage in this delightful hamlet between Sherston and Malmesbury. The cottage has been modernised to a very high standard by the current owners creating a home ready to move into for the new buyers. Now with three reception rooms and modern kitchen there is plenty of living space on the ground floor. The sitting room has a large south facing window that looks across the front garden and park land of Pinkney Park across the road. This room boasts a new, large log burner and hard wood character oak floor. The adjoining living room also has a newly fitted log burner, character oak wood floor and double doors leading into the garden. The kitchen has recently been upgraded with a John Lewis of Hungerford kitchen and granite worktop. The entrance hall, dining room and kitchen all have the same Mandarin Stone floor with underfloor heating. This provides a flow between these rooms.

      The first floor, with four bedrooms, has also been finished to the same high stand as the ground floor. The principal bedroom boasts an en suite shower room, as well as even better views of neighbouring park land. Bedrooms two and three share the beautiful family bathroom that has both a large cast iron freestanding bath and shower. Bedroom four is currently being used as a study.

      The well stocked private rear garden is mostly laid to lawn with a vegetable patch at the far end, where there is also a large shed with electricity connected. A gravelled patio area immediately behind the dining room is an ideal sheltered spot to enjoy alfresco dining during the summer months.
