A charming 1850s former 'Railway Workers Cottage' extended some 20 years ago to create a good sized family home. Set on the edge of this popular hamlet in a rural setting, the cottage enjoys fabulous countryside views all round as well as delightful walks right on the doorstep. Internally the accommodation is well presented and surprisingly bigger than it may first appear. There are three reception rooms plus a 13ft conservatory. The sitting room features an inviting log burning stove with an exposed brick chimney breast, and the dining room also has an attractive cast iron range. The modern kitchen/ breakfast room is dual aspect and has great views over the garden and the sheep in the field behind. There are painted units, a 'Rangemaster' oven as well as an electric oven and hob, integrated Neff dishwasher and under cabinet recessed lights. A useful utility room and downstairs cloakroom complete the ground floor. On the first floor there are three double bedrooms all taking in the great views, with an en suite shower room to the main bedroom, and a contemporary family bathroom with painted wooden floorboards. Outside, wooden double 5 bar gates open onto a gravelled driveway providing parking for at least 4 cars and leading to a large single garage with light, power and personal door to side. The garden is both private and south facing, adjoining fields to the rear. There are two patio sun terraces, a lawn with planted borders, established shrubs, a greenhouse, various fruit trees-pear, apple and greengage plum, plus a flowering cherry and lilac tree too. An early viewing is strongly recommended.


The property is situated on the outskirts of this popular Wiltshire village. The adjoining village of Erlestoke has a Golf Club whilst the nearby village of Edington has a wonderful farm shop and the 'Three Daggers' public house. A local bus route provides access to the primary and secondary schools in Great Cheverell and Market Lavington. The renowned Dauntsey's School can be found in West Lavington and the historic market town of Devizes is approximately five miles to the north providing town centre shopping, leisure centre, cinema, museum and theatre. For the more distant commuter other centres of Chippenham, Trowbridge, Salisbury, Bath, Swindon and Marlborough are all within a twenty five mile radius. Westbury Station is only a short drive away which provides mainline rail services.
