Set within the popular village of Shrewton, the cottage lies off Rollestone Road, a sought after private road which offers minimal traffic and a good deal of privacy. Consisting of a mix of period and individual modern houses, the area enjoys a community feel and is within walking distance of village amenities and excellent country walks.
Believed to date back to the 1930s, Glenesk is one of a pair of delightful thatched residences designed to emulate a classic period cottage. With a thatched roof and pristine white washed elevations, Glenesk enjoys a wealth of character and charm, but with the wonderful benefit of the spacious and light accommodation traditionally found in 30's houses. Presented in beautiful order, the cottage has been carefully re-arranged and modernised to create a fantastic family house with an ideal layout, comprising big rooms with excellent natural light and a pleasing open outlook across substantial gardens. Thanks to its generous plot, the cottage is set well back from the road behind a deep front garden and there is plenty of room to extend to the side and rear if required (subject to the necessary consents).
A stable door opens to the large glazed Entrance Porch with the original arched front door making a delightful feature. The Entrance Hall boasts solid oak flooring which is laid throughout the rest of the ground floor, giving a sense of continuity and complementing the original panelled doors and there is also useful built-in storage under the stairs. The Sitting Room is generously proportioned with its double aspect windows taking full advantage of views over the gardens. A fantastic feature of the house is the large L-shaped Kitchen / Dining / Family Room at the rear of the cottage which is arranged to make the most of the space with two sets of French doors opening to the garden, perfect for dining, relaxing and entertaining. The Kitchen is large, airy and well fitted with a range of units under solid granite worksurfaces and a dual fuel Range cooker. A separate Utility Area provides space for a washing machine and tumble dryer and there is also a separate Cloakroom.
To the first floor there are three good size bedrooms; the master bedroom and second bedroom enjoying a most pleasant elevated aspect across the hills. The large, fitted bathroom has a white suite comprising a bath and separate walk-in shower.
A large gravel drive provides ample parking and offers room to construct a garage if required (subject to the necessary consents). The front garden comprises a long, spacious lawn and from here steps lead up to a paved terrace at the front of the house, providing a wonderful spot to sit and look out across the wide open space. Access to the side leads to the substantial rear garden which is laid mainly to lawn with mature boundaries and a further terrace provides an excellent entertaining and dining area. A well placed Summer House enjoys a sunny aspect, with a decked area to the front and light and power connected.
Mature shrubs and trees provide height and interest and give a high degree of privacy.
At the top of the garden a gate leads through to an additional versatile space which again has potential for further development (subject to planning permissions) groundwork for electric & water pipes completed although still need connecting to the property.
Glenesk is situated in the village of Shrewton which is well served by local amenities including shops, a doctors' surgery, school, garage, inns and churches. The nearby town of Amesbury offers more comprehensive facilities, as does the Cathedral City of Salisbury which is the commercial and cultural focus for the area.
