Property Details

3 2 2
A most wonderful chance to purchase an enchanting detached character cottage presented to the market with the bonus of no onward chain. This delightful home sits well back from the road, boasting some lovely views over open countryside and offers flexible room usage arranged over three floors. The cottage has been the very much loved home of our seller for the last sixteen years during this time it has been extremely well maintained and improved. The property oozes charm with features such as exposed ceiling beams and timbers, exposed stone walls, wonderful fireplace with Bressumer beam and multi-fuel burner, some windows with deep sills and window seat. There is also an historic sympathetic extension to the side that created a dining room, utility and a first floor bedroom. The property also benefits from oil fired central heating. Although Maiden Bradley is a small village there is plenty of unity with the villagers running the community shop three days a week, which provides everyday essentials, there is also a post office for half a day, church and the local public house owned by the Duke of Somerset. Just six miles away is Warminster with more facilities and a train station.
