A charming semi detached one bedroom cottage with much character and with the benefit of a pretty garden with superb views set within this prime and sought after village. The cottage has been extended and offers deceptively spacious accommodation; it was completely rethatched in 2010. Of particular note is the light and airy kitchen/breakfast room with French windows to the garden and superb outlook over the village. There is a good range of floor and wall units with a stainless steel inset sink and an integral gas oven and hob with extractor over. The sitting room has an open brick fireplace and exposed ceiling beam. There is a cloakroom on the ground floor and upstairs the main bedroom is double aspect with a double built in wardrobe. The bathroom has a white suite with a Victorian style shower attachment. In all this is a delightful cottage set close to the centre of this thriving village.
Situation Aldbourne nestles at the confluence of five downland valleys. This highly regarded village is centred on The Square with its duck pond and a delightful village green. The picturesque green with its Market Cross historically would have been the medieval market place. Adjacent to the church, the green is now a focal point for the village and hosts the village fete each year. The village offers a post office, cafe and village store, 2 pubs and a church, a good primary school and an active village community. The market towns of Marlborough and Hungerford are both about 8 miles away. The commercial centre of Swindon is approximately 7 miles and provides a main line station with services to London Paddington (about 55 minutes). The M4 motorway at either junction 15 (about 7 miles) or junction 14 (about 10 miles).
Outside The cottage has side access to the sunny rear garden which is laid to lawn with mature shrubs. There is a pergola ideally positioned to benefit from afternoon sun and the stunning views over the village.
