This characterful period property is believed to date back to the 1750's with later extensions. The property was rethatched in 2012 and the current owners have renovated the cottage throughout including, plumbing, electrics, log burners and chimneys and a new sewerage bio-treatment plant. The cottage is presented to a very high standard and features neutral decoration and high-quality fittings. The result is a wonderful mix of traditional period features, whilst at the same time being perfect for contemporary living.

The downstairs accommodation layout is extremely flexible with three reception rooms. The sitting room has attractive herringbone parquet flooring, a fireplace with woodburning stove and French doors leading out onto the front garden. There is also a good sized snug with woodburner and a dining room. The large open-plan kitchen/breakfast room has a good range of painted wooden units with solid oak work surfaces. There is also a butler double sink, an electric Esse range cooker and flagstone flooring throughout. This space opens into the breakfast area where there is ample room for dining and glazed double doors that lead out onto the terrace. There is also a good sized utility room and a cloakroom.

On the first floor, there is a spacious triple aspect master bedroom with an en-suite shower room. There are two further large bedrooms which are serviced by the well-appointed traditional-style family bathroom which has a bath and separate shower.

Planning permission was granted in 2019 for a first floor extension over the existing kitchen and utility room to create a further two bedrooms and a bathroom - Wiltshire Planning reference 19/00423/FUL.

Surrounded by open farmland and countryside, the property enjoys a peaceful location on the edge of the village of Sherrington. It has a 17th century church and a village pond which forms the centre piece of this delightful small Wylye Valley village, which is almost entirely formed of period houses and cottages. The larger village of Codford is nearby and provides local amenities including a pub, doctor's surgery, Budgens mini supermarket, post office, garage and a vet. The town of Warminster offers further everyday facilities including a Waitrose and has a mainline railway station, with services to London Waterloo (approximately 120 minutes) and Bath (25 minutes). Salisbury lies to the south east and Bath to the north. The A303 provides excellent links to the West Country and London via the M3. The area is also very popular with an excellent selection of schools at all levels including popular primary schools in the local villages, Salisbury grammar schools and numerous renowned public schools.

The level gardens lie mostly to the front of the house and are mostly laid to lawn with pretty flower beds and are bordered by hedges. A gravel drive leads from automated wooden five bar gates to the double garage which has a kitchenette and a studio room above, perfect for a home office. There is also a double green oak frame carport. To the right of the drive is a small paddock area and area of woodland. To the rear of the property is a spacious terrace with a further area of lawn and further outbuildings.
