A large detached Grade II Listed cottage dating back to the early 1600s constructed of Flemish bond brick and smooth rendered elevations beneath a thatched roof, together with an adjoining single storey extension incorporating a double garage and large self-contained annexe (ideal for extended families, guests or potential holiday let/B&B). The accommodation has considerable character and there is scope and potential for a purchaser to put their own stamp on the property. The setting is particularly attractive, being set well back from the road along an unmade track with mature garden, vegetable garden and water meadow/wild garden bordering the River Bourne with fishing rights.
The property enjoys a private situation, set well back from the road along an unmade track within the village of Winterbourne Dauntsey, located along the A338 and traversed by the River Bourne. There is a thriving village community of all ages within the Winterbournes and facilities include two public houses, three churches, village shop/Post Office, excellent primary school and nursery. There are also regular bus services to Salisbury (just four miles away) which offers a comprehensive range of shopping, leisure and educational facilities (including the grammar schools and also private schools: Godolphin, Chafyn Grove and Salisbury Cathedral School) as well as a mainline railway station providing fast services to Waterloo. There is also a mainline railway station in Grateley, 9 miles away (Waterloo in 75 mins).
