The Property

Pause a moment to absorb the peace and serenity of this enviable rural setting. Part of the Wiltshire countryside and just a short drive to the thriving town of Malmesbury. This charming home was created in 1975 from a former farm building belonging to the adjacent Street Farmhouse. It has been in the same ownership since 1987 and while perfectly habitable, would now benefit from some up-dating. It offers flexible accommodation with options to create an annex or home office if required. The large gardens are a particular feature and include numerous mature trees together with organic vegetables beds and soft fruit.
