Situated towards the head of a village lane enjoying open farmland views to the front is this extended stone constructed two double bedroom cottage which, we are informed has been in the same family since new (1892) until the current owners occupation in 2015. This delightful character property offers a lengthy 140ft rear garden stocked with various wild flowers and with rear vehicular access, with scope for a garage (subject to planning permission). Internally the accommodation comprises an entrance porch, a beamed ceiling living room with an open flue fire with an 'Eco-stove' Log Burning stove for the main heating, a refitted kitchen room to include the fridge/freezer, range oven, dishwasher & washing machine. A side lobby makes for wonderful storage and gives access to the downstair WC, as well as the rear garden and workshop. To the first floor, a split landing leads to the two double bedrooms and modernised shower room. Further attributes include mains drainage, secondary electric heating via individually controlled thermostatic wall heaters. To the front is a well stocked garden with bee friendly wild flowers and fledgling hedging to the front with gated access and farmland views beyond.

Purton is a village with excellent amenities and a close community which offers a library, local store, public house and Bradon Forest Secondary School, situated to the west of Swindon and c3 miles north of the M4 J16. There are the nearby towns of Cricklade and Royal Wootton Bassett offering extended amenities being c4 miles as well as easy access to the A419.

All-in-all, a charming gem of a property that is sure to please.
