Description

An absolutely idyllic country cottage situated in a lovely rural village setting that has been extended & refurbished to an exemplary standard with stylish contemporary fittings.

Property
A very pretty detached period cottage built with local limestone external elevations under a clay tiled roof and is thought to date back to around 1800. In 2017 the cottage was comprehensively yet sympathetically refurbished, altered and extended to an extraordinary high standard with great care taken to retain its intrinsic charm and character but at the same time providing stylish modern fittings. These include handmade Norfolk pamment floors with heating under on the ground floor, wooden beamed ceilings and oak flooring upstairs.
The beautifully presented accommodation on the ground floor comprises a lovely light and airy open plan living space comprising a sitting area with a Nordica wood burner and a dining area that leads to a superb Neptune of Wilton bespoke fitted & equipped kitchen. There is also a utility/cloakroom on this level and a rear lobby. On the first floor are two bedrooms, a luxuriously appointed wet room and an airing cupboard. Littlehome would be ideal for use either as the perfect full-time residence or as a country retreat.

Outside
The property is approached via a grassed hard standing drive providing ample parking and leads to the detached timber clad oak framed garage/store by Sparkford Timber with a high-speed electric car charger. To the front of the cottage are flower borders and a stone paved path with a further gently rising and lit path leading up to the upper rear garden which backs on to a wild flower meadow and has a pavioured seating area and grassed banks.

Situation
The property is situated on a small lane of pretty cottages and houses in the highly desirable rural village of Berwick St John and is surrounded by glorious countryside. This attractive community is located at the head of the Chalke Valley and in the lee of the undulating downland of the Cranborne Chase on the Wiltshire/Dorset border with Win Green, a local beauty spot known for its spectacular views, close by. The village has a 14th Century church and a highly rated 17th Century dining pub, The Talbot Inn. Ludwell is three miles away and has an excellent store/post office which has won the accolade of Britain’s best village shop, an award-winning butcher, a primary school and two pubs.
The larger village of Tisbury and the Saxon hilltop market town of Shaftesbury are both around six miles away, each offering a good choice of independent shops, boutiques and eateries with amenities including sports centres and medical facilities. The former also has a station with direct rail services to London (Waterloo) and is home to Messums Wiltshire whilst the latter is famed for the steeply cobbled street of Gold Hill and has a well-regarded secondary school. The medieval cathedral city of Salisbury is within reach via the A30 whilst the local road network gives ready access to the other main towns in the region including Bath, Blandford, Sherborne, Warminster and Wincanton as well as to the South Coast, the West Country, London and the motorway network.
Berwick St John is located in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and is an ideal base from which to explore many miles of footpaths and bridleways. A variety of rural pursuits are available including walking, riding, cycling, fishing and traditional field sports. Sailing can be found at Shearwater near Warminster, racing is at Salisbury, Bath and Wincanton and golf at Tollard Royal, Warminster and Salisbury. Many families are drawn to South Wiltshire by the quality of life and excellent schools in both the state and private sectors. There are several excellent dining pubs in the vicinity as well as many places of interest such as the Longleat Estate, Old Wardour Castle, Stourhead Gardens, Wilton House and the Fovant Badges.
