A detached bungalow positioned on a generous plot in a quiet cul de sac in the popular market town of Cricklade. The property requires some updating but benefits from sitting room, two double bedrooms, kitchen and bathroom. The gardens are low maintenance with a south facing rear garden and garage. No chain.
The bungalow is situated just to the south of the centre of Cricklade which itself lies to the south of the Wiltshire/Gloucestershire border in the Thames Valley. It is almost equidistant from Cirencester to the north, and Swindon to the south. It is an attractive old town with origins dating back to the Roman Road from Silchester to Cirencester. By the 9th Century it had developed into an important Saxon settlement when the borough formed part of the Wessex fortifications against the Danes. Modern Cricklade provides a good range of local shopping and recreational facilities, as well as an infant school, a co-educational preparatory school and a local primary school. There is also a bank and two doctors' surgeries within walking distance of the house. The town has benefited greatly from having a by pass and the much improved A419, which is virtually dual carriageway its entire length and links the M4 at Swindon with the M5 at Gloucester. Both motorways are therefore very accessible, bringing London, the Midlands, Bristol and the South West into comfortable driving distance. By train, services from Swindon to London (Paddington) are scheduled at 55 minutes, to Bristol and Bath at 45 and 25 minutes respectively.

The garden continues to the side of the property which (STPP) could be used to extend the bungalow further.
