Location

Situation and Amenities

The peaceful position of the cottage is a particular feature, sitting as it does towards the end of a no-through lane on the edge of the sought-after village of Newton Tony. It is surrounded by 750 acres of unspoilt countryside, owned by the RSPB, including the Winterbourne Downs. The village has a primary school, church, village hall and a popular pub. The market town of Amesbury is less than five miles to the west and provides a host of everyday amenities, such as supermarkets, schools, pubs and independent shops.

Although Newton Tony is positioned well away from main roads, it remains easily accessible. Grateley station is approximately six miles away and offers direct trains to London Waterloo (average journey time of 1 hour 25 mins). The beautiful Cathedral city of Salisbury offers a wide selection of shops, restaurants, arts and recreational facilities. Trains from Salisbury to London Waterloo have a journey time of approximately 90 minutes. Racing is available at Salisbury Racecourse and Wincanton and golf at South Wilts Golf Club and High Post. This area is renowned for its fishing on the River Avon, Test and outlying chalk streams. The A303 provides access to the south west and London via the M3.

There is a wide selection of both state and private schools in the area, including Dauntseys, Warminster, Salisbury Cathedral School, Chafyn Grove and Godolphin, as well as Bishop Wordsworth and South Wilts Grammar Schools.

Description

This charming thatched cottage, dating from 1741 with later additions, sits in a tranquil edge-of-village position, with gardens rolling down to a winterbourne. It has been sympathetically extended over the years to provide flexible accommodation. The front door, accessed via a pretty thatched porch, opens into an entrance hall with a stone floor. The drawing room, with a large inglenook fireplace with a wood-burning stove and a wealth of exposed beams, leads through to the kitchen/breakfast room, which has the benefit of an AGA, fitted wooden units and a quarry-tiled floor. The adjacent dining room is a light, bright room with a roof lantern, quarry-tiled floor and French doors onto the terrace. A cosy dual-aspect sitting room, family bathroom, utility room and cloakroom complete the ground floor. A staircase leads up from the sitting room to the triple-aspect principal bedroom and en suite shower room. The second staircase, from the entrance hall, leads up to three further double bedrooms.

The cottage is approached from the lane, via a five-bar gate, onto a gravel driveway, with parking for several cars. A really good range of fully insulated outbuildings are suitable for a variety of uses, such as home office, games room, gym or annexe (subject to the necessary consents). The separate garden studio has three sets of French doors overlooking the garden and is fully insulated, with both water and power. Behind the main run of outbuildings is a log store and further garden storage.

The delightful garden is laid mainly to lawn, with herbaceous borders and several mature trees, such as weeping willow and ash, a vegetable garden and a greenhouse. The lawns run down to a winterbourne and overlook the countryside beyond.
