A rare opportunity to purchase a charming cottage with two bedrooms and partially converted loft space, separate studio / workshop, in a highly sought after village with good local amenities.
Berwick St James is pretty, an archetypal Wiltshire village, set in the lovely Till Valley, with many period cottages and houses, a fantastic pub and excellent farm shop. Add to this a friendly, active community and it is not surprising that the village is locally recognised as one of the most sought after in the area.
No 2 The Row is situated within the heart of the village, a former estate cottage dating from the 1800's it has attractive white washed elevations and offers lovely, character accommodation.
Beautifully presented, the cottage retains much of the original character, including mellow beams, latch doors and pretty windows. The spacious Sitting Room features a fabulous Inglenook fireplace, with a recently installed woodburner, and forms a very inviting reception room.
An extension to the rear has created the space to include a good size kitchen/dining room that enjoys views over the lovely gardens. Fitted with painted wooden units under solid oak worksurfaces, with Butler style sink and space for a Range cooker, the kitchen is light and bright and has a perfect county style appeal, with plenty of room to accommodate dressers, table and chairs.
From the lobby there is a cloakroom and a stable door to the garden.
On the first floor there are two good size bedrooms, one with built in cupboard, and a well fitted bathroom with white suite.
A staircase from Bedroom 1 rises to the loft, which underwent conversion to a large useable space but is yet to be signed off by building control.
Conveniently, there is plenty of parking within the village with space directly outside of the cottage.
The rear garden is of good size and secure, with a large area of lawn bordered with well stocked flower, rose and shrub beds. A gravelled seating area is a glorious sun trap and the ideal spot to relax or dine al fresco.
At the rear of the garden a detached Office/Workshop, forms a multi purpose room with double wooden doors opening onto the garden. Insulated and with power, Internet and telephone connected, it provides a superb work from home space.
Agents Note: A Right of Way exists across the garden.
