No.5 Catherine Court is part of a well-planned, private courtyard development, situated within the heart of the highly popular village of Shrewton. Converted from a coaching inn, The Catherine Wheel, the original building dates from 1761, has attractive brick and flint elevations and is Listed Grade II.
The convenience of the location is an asset, with the village shop, garage and doctors surgery within a moments walk and the other excellent amenities that Shrewton has to offer within striking distance,
No.5 has the benefit of the largest garden in the close and enjoys a delightfully tucked away location, in a mews type setting of just two, with a private courtyard to the front.
The cottage offers deceptively spacious, well laid out accommodation, which is light, bright and easily run. Perfect for those wishing to downsize to an active village, the house is also ideal for busy people and those that require a 'lock up and leave' property.
From the flower filled courtyard, the front door opens to the Entrance Hall which has a practical tiled floor and Cloakroom off. The staircase rises to the first floor, with useful cupboard under.
The L-shaped Sitting Room, forms a delightful reception space with original windows with deep sills forming a lovely feature and a stable door giving direct access to the beautiful garden at the rear.
The Kitchen/Breakfast Room offers enough space to dine in and is fitted with a comprehensive range of cream coloured units. Equipped with electric oven with extractor hood over and concealed dishwasher, there is also a separate Utility Room with plumbing for a washing machine.
From the first floor landing there is a large linen cupboard, a family bathroom and three good size bedrooms; the Master Bedroom having the benefit of an en suite shower room and featuring an attractive, high, original window that diffuses a lovely light into the room.
The private drive provides residents parking to the properties, with No.5 having two spaces.
The real surprise to the property is the absolute gem of a garden that is hidden at the rear. Walled on three sides and beautifully planted to provide a wonderful backdrop to the cottage, the garden is of perfect size for combining enjoyment with ease of maintenance. Arranged to provide colour and interest throughout the seasons, an area of lawn is surrounded with well stocked beds which continue to bloom through from spring bulbs to herbaceous perennials, backed by carefully trained roses and honeysuckle that adorn the boundaries.
Small fruiting trees, including Apple and Cherry are joined by ornamental varieties including Acer, Philadelphus and a wonderfully vibrant Maple.
A paved terrace , set close to the cottage, provides the perfect spot to enjoy this lovely suntrap, ideal for breakfast or drinks in the evening, whilst enjoying the colour and scent that surrounds it.
Gravelled paths lead to an area of productive Kitchen Garden with raised beds filled with vegetables and herbs. A garden shed provides useful storage and a rear gate gives direct access to a pathway leading out to the village High Street.
The property is situated in the village of Shrewton which is
well served by local amenities including shops, doctors'
surgery, school, garage, inns and churches. Amesbury
offers more comprehensive facilities as does the Cathedral
City of Salisbury which is the commercial and cultural focus
for the area. Bus services run from the village and
Salisbury has a mainline station to Waterloo (average
travelling time about 1 hour 35 minutes). The A303 is
conveniently close by, giving good road access via the M3
