This charming detached house, constructed of weathered red brick and sarsen stone under a thatched roof. Located in the popular village of Lockeridge, the house is listed grade II and was, we understand, constructed in 1600 with later extensions. There are many period features including an impressive inglenook fireplace, a bread oven and exposed beams. Both reception rooms have French Elm flooring and a staircase rises from the second reception room and divides left and right to access the first floor bedrooms. The good sized kitchen is fitted with a range of wall and base units from Smallbone of Devizes and has a reclaimed tile floor and a solid fuel Rayburn (not currently connected). There is also an integrated hob, oven, fridge and dishwasher. Leading off the kitchen is a very useful lobby/boot room with access to the rear garden and there is also a downstairs cloakroom. Upstairs are 3 bedrooms; the master bedroom is double aspect with lovely Elm window seats providing additional storage space. This room has an en suite bathroom and there is also a family bathroom. The house is well presented throughout.
Gardens and grounds
The charming cottage garden runs around 3 sides of the house but lies mainly to the front and side. It is principally laid to lawn with pretty stone paths, flower beds and borders and mature trees. There is a garden store and a single garage. The house is wonderfully located looking out across open land.
