Property Details

3 3 1
Boasting a tranquil location in a no through lane on the fringe of the town, is this charming detached stone cottage offering three good sized bedrooms, beautifully landscaped large garden and views over roof tops and to Castle Hill. We believe that the cottage pre-dates the 1850s and has been a much cherished and enjoyed home to our sellers for the last five years. During this time the cottage has been very well maintained with some general works carried out and improved with replacement kitchen units and the bathroom and utility rooms also benefit from new fittings. The hot water cylinder has been updated with pressurised system and the exterior stonework is due to be re-pointed imminently. In addition, the cottage has gas fired central heating via radiators and wood burner and uPVC double glazed windows. This delightful home provides well proportioned bright rooms, enjoying plenty of natural light and an easy to use layout that will satisfy the needs of many potential buyers. This distinctive home must be viewed to be truly appreciated as well as its peaceful location that is within an easy walk to the town centre. The town itself benefits from having a good community spirit with many facilities such as, a museum, library, surgery, dentist, post office 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 and twenty minutes to Warminster, which also has a mainline train station.
