Open House estate agents Swindon is pleased to offer for sale in the sought after village of Wroughton, a character property with history and potential to develop 2 outdoor buildings.
This property is believed to be built circa 250 years ago and is still fondly remembered as Miss Hyde's Sweet Shop on the corner of Marlborough Road, which closed during the 1980's. What is not as well known is situated in the garden is the Bake House, which used to bake bread before Preddy's Bakery. The flour was stored on the first floor, which was passed across from the former stables/cart house. The baking ovens no longer exist, however there are signs of the former use with old weighing scales and the flour access point.
The former stables/cart house is now a very useful 10m long garage/workshop with a first floor storage area. The brick built Bake House is a useful building that has used for entertaining with its own bar. Both buildings have mains power with ample sockets.
This family home has 3 upstairs bedrooms, upstairs bathroom, kitchen, 2 reception rooms, 1 was the shop and the other has a cosy open fire, plus a further bedroom and shower room on the ground floor. There are 2 patio areas, 1 situated on the site of the former ovens, plus a large fenced garden, ideal for children, plus parking for vehicles with ample room to create additional parking.
