5 Bed Cottage
DescriptionSt Christophers is centrally located in the historic town of Malmesbury. Hiding behind this quintessential 17th century facade is a surprisingly spacious 2,800 sq ft family home embodying a plethora of character features.
Upon entering you are welcomed into the reception hall; here you are immediately drawn to the openness of the living room, created by the bifold doors allowing the room to be filled with natural light, effortlessly blending the idiosyncrasy of a character cottage with the ideals of modern living. Due to the elevated position the views across to the abbey become a feature of the room.
The snug off the hall boasts an impressive fireplace with stone surround believed to have come from Malmesbury Abbey, with an inset log burner. The dining room is well proportioned and would comfortably seat a table of 10 dinner guests. The kitchen breakfast room to the rear benefits from 'John Lewis of Hungerford' units which have recently been professionally repainted along with new work surfaces; combined with an inglenook fireplace along the back wall provides a farmhouse feel.
The rear lobby leads to a utility/workshop providing further storage of which there is already an abundance.
The open stairs with additional roof skylight invites you to explore the upper levels. On the first floor is the impressive master bedroom boasting views across the Abbey and benefitting from a full bathroom en suite and walk in dressing room. On the adjacent landing are two further double bedrooms and a wet room. The second floor provides two bedrooms each offering exposed beams and charm typical of the era.
Externally, the rear garden boasts seating area to enjoy the far reaching views with lawn area and mature trees and shrubs.
St Christophers embraces the very best of Town and Country living enjoying a timeless feel and sense of space.
