NEARING COMPLETION – A detached rural village property rebuilt & extended to exacting standards to create a beautifully presented family home with well-equipped accommodation and farmland views.
Once a pair of period farmworkers cottages built with brick external elevations under a tiled roof, some years ago the property was made into a single dwelling. Over the last year it has been largely rebuilt and extended to exacting standards by the highly experienced Wiltshire builders, Newcourt Homes Ltd and renamed Bidden House in reference to the old name for the road it sits back from, Bidden Lane, now known as Shrewton Road. The extensive works have been carried out using the latest building techniques, high levels of insulation and air-sourced heating making it an energy efficient, economic family home equipped with high quality fittings.
The accommodation on the ground floor includes an entrance hall with a cloakroom and leads to a generously proportioned dining room which is open plan to the attractively fitted and equipped kitchen which has folding doors to the rear terrace. The double aspect sitting room has views to the front, bi-fold doors to the rear terrace and a fireplace (not fitted) with a rear lobby beyond and an office/study. Upstairs is a master bedroom with an en-suite shower room, a guest room with an en-suite shower room, two further bedrooms, a family bathroom and a linen cupboard.
A drive leads past the front garden to an area of parking at the side for three cars. To the rear is a paved terrace and access up to a raised garden with rural views.
The ownership of an area of land across Shrewton Road is to be passed on to the four households of the Bidden Development Site once they are all sold for shared amenity & recreational use. Backing on to fields with an outlook over farmland, it is where the communal sewage treatment plant is sited.
Chitterne is a small rural community situated amidst the gently rolling chalk downland on the southwestern edge of Salisbury Plain where it meets the lovely countryside of the Wylye Valley. The village has an active village hall, church, playground and cricket club whilst the nearby larger villages of Codford, Heytesbury and Shrewton have between them good everyday amenities including a choice of shops, post offices, primary schools, petrol stations, doctors surgeries and vets.
The market town of Warminster is about 8 miles away and has supermarkets, shops, health and leisure facilities as well as a railway station with services to London, Bristol and Southampton whilst the station at Westbury has direct rail service to London (Paddington). The nearest regional airports are at Bournemouth, Bristol and Southampton.
Chitterne is in a lovely rural setting well placed for the A36 which provides good road access to the medieval cathedral city of Salisbury and Roman city of Bath whilst the A360 accessible at Tilshead, links to Devizes and Chippenham. The nearby A303 serves London, the West Country and the motorway network. The village is an excellent base for several highly respected schools in both the state and private sectors including amongst many others; Dauntseys, Warminster School, and Salisburys grammar and independent schools.
Chitterne is surrounded by open stretches of undulating countryside ideal for a variety of rural pursuits including walking, riding, field sports and cycling. Racing is at Salisbury, Bath and Wincanton, sailing at Shearwater, rugby union at Bath with golf at Erlestoke, Tollard Royal, Warminster and Salisbury. There are several famous visitor attractions in the area such as Stourhead Gardens, Longleat Safari Park, Wilton House, Salisbury Cathedral and Stonehenge.
