Firmount is an impressive three bedroom detached house standing in an elevated position with origins dating back to 1910. The last house on the Malmesbury train line, Firmount is believed to be the setting of J. M. W. Turner's famous water colour of Malmesbury Abbey. The spacious interior flows around a central hallway with a wonderful open plan kitchen/breakfast room with a solid fuel burner opening to the dining room. A dual aspect sitting room enjoys an exposed brick feature fireplace and leads onto the useful utility room and a separate shower room. The first floor boasts three generous double bedrooms and a beautifully re-fitted family bathroom. Externally the property sits the heart of the plot amidst established gardens, in all extending to about circa 0.3 of an acre. Set to either side of the property and to the front, there is a mix of seating areas, lawn and productive vegetable patches. A particular feature is a detached workshop (24'8 x 20'7 ) which opens to the double garage (21'4 x 12'6 ). There is ample off road parking with the property for multiple vehicles.


The hilltop town of Malmesbury is officially recognised as England's oldest borough. Situated on the edge of the Cotswolds, surrounded by two branches of the River Avon, it boasts buildings of golden Cotswold stone and beautiful river walks. Famous for its ancient Abbey and elaborate 15th century Market Cross, the town may well have history round every corner but is also bursting with life, enjoying excellent independent shops, a Waitrose, charming cosy pubs, friendly cafes, regular farmers' markets and a busy local events schedule. There is a wide choice of schools nearby which include the award winning Malmesbury Secondary. The establishment of the Dyson design and development headquarters on the edge of the town means that Malmesbury is now a centre for technical innovation, allowing the town to truly describe itself as both ancient and modern. Malmesbury is five miles north of the M4 (Junction 17) so within easy commuting distance of Bristol, Bath and Swindon. London is approximately 1 hours away by car or train.
