This picturesque, period cottage is one of three terraced houses in Corton, a popular village situated in Wiltshire, close to the Somerset border. Built in 1867, this cosy house is full of character and retains many period features. It is part of a peaceful and secure community and is well located with the well-known Dove gastro pub just a short walk away.
An attractive stone path leads through a very pretty front garden to the front door situated in a small porch-way. The sitting room is charming and features original oak beams and an original quarried tiled floor that extends to the kitchen. The room is warmed by a Tortoise box open fire, integrated into the chimney stack and furnished with a new flu in 2015. The dining room runs from the sitting room and has lovely views of the front garden. The kitchen at the rear of the house is equipped with fitted units and has been furnished with a new Bosch oven, hob and extractor fan. A ‘stable’ door leads directly to the garden and a pretty terrace. The bathroom has recently been upgraded with a new suite and shower unit. Upstairs are two good sized double bedrooms with views to the garden.
This delightful cottage has been broadly updated throughout giving its new owner peace of mind; hard wood windows at the front of the property have been fully renovated ‘as new’ and the garage has a new roof and an electricity supply. The beautiful thatched roof has a twenty year lifespan and all the smoke alarms have been fully integrated to the mains wired electricity system.
The cottage has both front and rear gardens, the latter with an appealing West facing terrace and access to the garage and the road. There is potential to convert this to a third bedroom given the relevant planning consents. Externally, both gardens are well maintained, and mainly laid to lawn with planted trees and mature borders.
Rose Cottage is well located in Corton conveniently close to Salisbury and Warminster, in the picturesque downland of the Wylye Valley. This sought-after village boasts a delightful pub with a fine restaurant, and a 12th century grade I listed church. Nearby Codford has a well-stocked local shop, a village garage, public house, two churches, and a primary school. Further facilities can be found in nearby Warminster (including a Waitrose) and the larger centres of Salisbury (15 miles) or Bath (24 miles) are within reach. Other local attractions include racing at Salisbury Racecourse and Wincanton and golf at Warminster, Erlestoke and Westbury. This area is also renowned for its fishing on the River Avon, Test and outlying chalk streams.
There is a wide selection of both state and private schools in the area, including Warminster School, Marlborough, Dauntseys, Salisbury Cathedral School, Chafyn Grove and Godolphin, as well as Bishop Wordsworth and South Wilts Grammar Schools.
Transport links are good with mainline rail services run from Salisbury (London Waterloo about 90 minutes), Westbury (London Paddington about 85 minutes), and Warminster (for Southampton, Bath, Bristol, and South Wales).
