The popular village of Lea lies about 2 miles east of Malmesbury and has a church, public house, primary school, playgroup and recreation field with tennis court and play park. The nearby town of Malmesbury caters for most everyday requirements with Chippenham, Cirencester and Swindon all offering more comprehensive facilities. The village is readily accessible to Swindon 14.5 miles distant and Junction 17 of the M4 motorway, about 6 miles south, provides access to the area's major employment centres.

The Property

Designed and built for the current owners in 1999, by a local reputable builder, this detached home affords spacious and well planned accommodation arranged over two floors. It is screened from the village road by a mature hedge and there is ample parking and turning space on the driveway. The windows and external doors are wooden with double glazed units and the rear garden enjoys a westerly aspect. Internally the property is well presented. Due to its location in this popular village, an early viewing is strongly recommended.

The Accommodation

The front door leads into a good sized hall with staircase off. There is a built-in cupboard for coats and a shower room next door. The dual aspect sitting room has an open fireplace with stone surround. It is unusually more square than rectangular and has double doors with parliament hinges into the adjacent dining room, which in turn connects back to the hall and also the kitchen, making the house ideal for entertaining. The triple aspect kitchen/breakfast room has designated areas for eating and cooking, the latter having a built-in double oven, hob and freezer, together with a traditional pantry cupboard. The utility room adjoins the eating area, and has the Worcester Danesmoor boiler, space for two under counter appliances, a useful store cupboard, built-in units and the water softener. On the first floor, from the part galleried landing are five bedrooms including an extensive en-suite master bedroom with dressing area and generous wardrobes. The remaining bedrooms comprise three with built-in wardrobes and another en-suite shower room. A family bath and shower room and separate airing cupboard complete this floor. There is a trap door to the large centre boarded and well insulated loft space, which has a ladder and light.


A pillared entrance and five bar gate leads to the gravelled drive with turning area. Behind the garage is the oil tank, a vegetable garden and greenhouse. By the utility room is a tap and a gravelled seating area, which leads on to the rear garden. This is enclosed and private, by virtue of hedging and fencing. It is chiefly lawned with mature shrubs and trees.
