Covid 19 restrictions

We are now able to arrange viewings and valuations. Due to the pandemic, sensible precautions and conditions are now in place, to protect all parties. Before a viewing is arranged we would ask for any potential buyer to have seen the property externally(if possible), be familiar with the area and to have undertaken as much research as possible. Phone us and ask anything. Let us know your likes and dislikes and we will do our best to guide you. We do not want to place at risk our vendors or ourselves, to any unnecessary contact. Ideally viewers should be in a position to proceed and for this property to be what they are looking for, not simply to get an idea with a future view of possibly moving. If any person is 'at risk', had recent contact with anyone showing cold like symptoms, or in any way feels unwell, please inform us so a decision can be made. All viewings will be accompanied. Please wait away from the front door for us to arrive. Please bring hand sanitiser, if possible disposable gloves and face masks. We will open up and when ready ask you to step inside. We will all keep a 2 meter distance. If you wish to see inside a cupboard etc, ask us to open it. Do not touch anything. If you accidently touch anything please inform us so we can disinfect. Once the viewing has taken place please exit the property immediately. We would ask you to then phone us with questions and feedback. We look forward to seeing you.

The Village and property

Located between Broad Hinton and Avebury, the village has long been one of the most sought after locations in the area providing a lovely village feel with historic church and an excellent recently refurbished community owned Pub, without the hustle and bustle of a larger village or lack of facilities of a smaller one. Marlborough, Swindon and Royal Wootton Bassett are all about10 minutes drive, over some of the most beautiful countryside in the country.

The property is believed to dated back to the middle 18th century and was the village post office and stores. It has recently undergone a transformation into a charming, characterful, luxury home with a light contemporary feel inside whilst retaining many beautiful features. Currently configured as three large bedrooms all with adjoining bathrooms, it could easily be converted back to four doubles if desired.
