Located in the heart of Wiltshire, George Ward Gardens is a new development in the historic town of Melksham, offering a wide range of contemporary two, three, four and five bedroom homes, and two bedroom apartments.
A wealth of stunning natural scenery and unspoiled landscape make up the county of Wiltshire, along with a colourful and rich heritage. The small town of Melksham has its own historical influences. Once part of a vast royal forest which was a favourite hunting ground of Tudor kings, it evolved at a ford across the River Avon. It is believed that its name derives from Meolcham, 'Meolc' being an old English word for milk and 'ham', a farm.
A mixture of pretty terraced cottages and grand town houses can be found in the old part of the town, which historically, had its fair share of entrepreneurs, villains and royal property owners. The main industry in the area was cloth, with the last working cloth mill auctioned in 1888, and now incorporated into the Cooper Avon Tyre factory, an American company and the largest employer in Melksham today.
Today Melksham is a bustling town, retaining a quiet charm and proud trading heritage. For everyday life, the town boasts a fine selection of shops and essential services ranging from major high street names to individual, specialist retailers, meeting all of your requirements. Tempting places to eat and drink include cafés, tea shops, traditional pubs, bars and restaurants.
A superb all-year-round programme of cultural arts and entertainment events won't disappoint, including sports and leisure opportunities and festivals. There are numerous places of interest to visit in the surrounding areas including stately homes and gardens such as Bowood, Longleat, Chalfield Manor and Lacock. The town is also popular with people who enjoy the great outdoors as there’s plenty of opportunities for walking, cycling and boating along the lanes, byways and canals which are plentiful in the beautiful Wiltshire countryside.
Sure to be popular with a wide range of homebuyers, George Ward Garden's idyllic situation combines beautiful countryside, a bustling town and excellent road and rail links.
