The property stands in a central position in the heart of this most popular village in a secluded setting. Lea is a sought after village with a thriving community, a highly regarded primary school, church and excellent public house with restaurant. The village is approximately two and a half miles from Malmesbury, which dates back to the 11th century and is reputed to be the oldest borough in the country. This thriving pretty town offers a wealth of buildings of architectural interest including its ancient Abbey, whilst also having a wide range of shops, a Waitrose and Aldi, schools and leisure facilities available. Early tributaries of The River Avon pass around the town with pretty walks and the countryside close at hand. There are public transport services and good road access to the larger towns of Cirencester, Chippenham, Swindon, Bath and Bristol whilst the M4 junction 17 is only five miles south. Trains from Chippenham (10 miles) and Kemble (5 miles) link with London Paddington within approximately 1 hour.

Heating and hot water by 'Ice Energy' ground source heat pump, drawn from a 60m bore hole providing heat transfer from the earth's core to an underfloor heating and pressurized hot water system in all homes.

Whole house ventilation and heat recovery system by Villavent providing a complete circulation and extraction system throughout all floors to ensure consistent temparature and humidity.

Large underground rainwater storage tanks which supply all non drinking outlets throughout the home.
