Property Details

4 3 2
***END OF CHAIN PROPERTY***A charming detached character stone cottage with four double sized bedrooms and enjoying a private location within walking distance of the town's facilities. We believe that the cottage dates to the mid 1700s with a double storey sympathetic addition in the 1980s. The property retains many character features, such as exposed ceiling beams, timber lintels, solid wood flooring and fireplaces. The property has been a very much loved and enjoyed home to our sellers for the last sixteen years. During this time it has been updated with new bathroom suites, replacement kitchen units with granite work surfaces and a conservatory has been added. There is also a wonderful timber cabin that has power and offer multi-functional usage - work from home, children's play house or as currently used as a cinema room. In addition, the property benefits from uPVC double glazing with some windows having a Georgian bar inlay and gas fired central heating. Viewing is essential to really appreciate this special cottage with its well laid out and good sized rooms plus its location to the town. Mere benefits from having a good community spirit with many facilities such as, a museum, library, surgery, dentist, post office, police and fire station. There are also a good selection of shops and village pubs. Salisbury is approximately 25 miles away and there is a main line station in Gillingham, just ten minutes drive away where there are extra amenities.
