Property Summary

A charming extended period cottage in an idyllic edge of village setting with glorious country views, versatile accommodation and a delightful generously sized garden.





An attractive detached Grade II Listed cottage thought to date back to the late 17th or early 18th Century with the core of the property built with stone and flint chequerwork external elevations under a thatched roof. In the late 20th century the cottage was substantially extended, altered and modernised with high quality fittings to create a lovely country home with bags of character and versatile accommodation that now offers a new owner the opportunity to make further improvements. Of particular note are the outstanding southerly views across the neighbouring farmland.

A charming sitting room is at the heart of the oldest part of the cottage with a wooden beamed ceiling and a wonderful stone inglenook open fireplace complete with a bread oven. The ground floor also offers a sunny dining room overlooking the garden, a well fitted and equipped kitchen that is open plan to an adjoining breakfast room which in turn leads to a light and airy garden room with a vaulted wooden clad ceiling and mezzanine storage/slumber area. There is also a downstairs guest bedroom with an en-suite bathroom, two halls and a cloak/utility room. Upstairs there is a family bathroom and two bedrooms, one of which gives access to a dressing/4th bedroom with a walk-in loft store.



Outside

A shared gravelled drive and public footpath gives access to a former garage (now a pair of garden stores) with a wooden gate leading to an area of parking. A special feature of the cottage are the absolutely delightful gardens which extend to around half an acre and adjoin open countryside. These comprise a wide stone paved terrace with well stocked flower and shrub borders and steps up to the expansive lawn with mature beech, willow, conifer and fruit trees and a small ‘hidden’ garden.



Situation

The property is situated in a wonderful setting at the end of a no-through lane on the edge of the rural yet accessible village of Winterbourne Stoke and enjoys a wonderful pastoral outlook over fields and woodland. The village is located in the pretty Till Valley to the South of Salisbury Plain and in turn forms part of the beautiful Wylye Valley. Winterbourne Stoke has a 12th century church, petrol station with shop and a pub. About a mile walk away in the neighbouring village of Berwick St James is The Boot Inn dining pub and a farm shop. Nearby Shrewton has a good choice of local facilities including a primary school, doctors’ surgery, supermarket, butchers, garage, pubs and sports ground.

More extensive amenities can be found six miles away in the small town of Amesbury whilst the medieval cathedral city of Salisbury is 10 miles distant and offers a good range of shopping, education, leisure, arts and entertainment facilities and is home to a large regional hospital. There are good transport links close at hand with Winterbourne Stoke being located off the A303 trunk road making London reachable for the motorist whilst the local road network gives ready access to the other main towns in the region including Andover, Bath, Devizes, Shaftesbury and Warminster. There is a mainline railway station at Salisbury with services to London (Waterloo) and the West Country.

Many families are attracted to the area by the wide choice of highly regarded schools in both the state and private sectors. Church Cottage is surrounded by the gently undulating South Wiltshire countryside and is an ideal base for a variety of rural pursuits such as walking, riding and cycling as well as traditional field sports. Racing can be found at Bath, Salisbury and Wincanton. There are many places of interest in the vicinity such as Old Wardour Castle, the Longleat Estate, Salisbury Cathedral, Stourhead Gardens, Wilton House and Stonehenge which is less than 3 miles away.
