Rose Cottage is a picture, a perfect character home. Dating from 1802 and with mellow stone elevations, this traditional Wiltshire cottage fits in well on the small, no through lane, on which it is located. Approached from the lane, the cottage stands within prettily planted gardens, an immaculate and colourful entrance leading to a secret garden and the most wonderful open views across the Wylye Valley.
Beautifully renovated, the cottage offers excellent accommodation, perfectly presented to complement the character of the building, and forms a wonderful village home which would also make an ideal weekend retreat.
The Sitting Room is of good size, a wide Inglenook fireplace (currently not in use) forming a lovely focal point, flanked by bespoke cupboards and display shelves with concealed lighting. Storage has been well thought out in the cottage and there are further, useful built-in cupboard spaces.
The Kitchen/Dining Room offers plenty of space for a table and chairs, and with French windows opening on the garden, is a lovely room in which to cook and dine. Fitted with a comprehensive range of shaker style units under granite worksurfaces with butlers style sink, the kitchen is fully equipped with cooker and hob with extractor over, integrated dishwasher and fridge/freezer.
On the first floor the Master Bedroom has built-in storage and is a beautiful space, light and airy with French windows opening to a secluded, decked terrace. The second bedroom is a double and has a hanging recess. The Bathroom has been luxuriously fitted with a white suite.
The current owners have created a further, excellent room, that lends itself to be used in many ways, on the third floor. Spacious and light the room includes with eaves storage and has apex and velux windows making the most of the wonderful far reaching views.
To the front of the cottage, the gravelled drive provides ample private parking.
The gardens are immaculate, carefully terraced, with gravelled paths, bordered by rendered brick walls that retain beautifully planted flower and shrub beds, leading up to the most delightfully secluded, south facing elevated garden.
The perfect spot in which to entertain, with immaculate lawns and including a decked area with inset lighting, for barbecues etc, There is also a shed with power connected and a greenhouse.
But the most wonderful surprise is the view, outstanding and far reaching across the village and the Wildfowl Trust's Langford Lakes, taking the eye towards mile after mile of the Wylye valley and the West Wiltshire Downs; and with a tree, ready for hammock in the corner, it truly is the most tranquil and relaxing spot.
