Bryant's Cottage is a truly delightful Grade II Listed detached dwelling of 17th Century origins with 18 Century alterations and 20th Century additions located within the picturesque semi-rural Wiltshire hamlet of Bapton.

Oozing with character Bryant's Cottage is constructed of painted rubble stone and chalk with a half-hipped thatched roof and brick stacks. There are many fine period features including exposed beams, flagstone, brick, slate and natural wooden floors, two working fireplaces; an inglenook in the sitting room with inset log burner. There are a variety of original casement windows, period timber doors and panelling throughout the cottage.

The comfortable accommodation comprises four reception rooms, a generous utility room and a fabulous farmhouse-style kitchen which was formerly the village bakers shop. The kitchen has a slate floor, working double oven Aga and excellent array of cupboards and cabinets including a large original shop dresser-style unit with cupboards and drawers; there is also a wide window seat, shutters and a beamed ceiling. The first floor has a generous master bedroom with an ensuite wc, a second double bedroom and a good sized bathroom; both bedrooms have an excellent range of bespoke fitted wardrobes and cupboards.

Additionally the former bake house provides separate ancillary accommodation comprising a large open plan bedroom/sitting area with an adjoining ensuite bathroom and French doors leading directly onto the garden. A modern/contemporary extension would link the bake house to the main cottage beautifully which would then be incorporated into the main body of the cottage.

There is a large gravelled drive and a substantial detached garage with two pairs of folding double doors, power and light; all located to the left hand side of the cottage . There is a second gravelled drive for additional parking adjoining the bake house which would be ideal parking for visitors and guests.

The gardens are well established with mature borders, vegetable beds, fruit cages and an expanse of lawn. There are a variety of different seating areas, a timber garden shed, an outside wc, a thatched roofed pavilion style summer house and greenhouse. There are lovely far reaching views from the majority of rooms in the cottage and the garden.
