A very desirable detached period home, which has attractive green sandstone elevations beneath a thatched roof. Turnpike Cottage has been refurbished in recent years with numerous original features, including extensive exposed timbers and braced pine doors. A notable feature of the property are the extensive grounds which amount to 0.4 of an acre, with an elevated position offering lovely views across the village cricket ground and the valley beyond. The property is not Listed which is unusual in properties of this age and character and would therefore offer opportunities for extension, subject to the usual consents.
The particularly attractive accommodation includes an enclosed entrance porch, dining hall, sitting room, kitchen, cloakroom, three bedrooms and a family bathroom. Properties in Compton Chamberlayne rarely come to the market and we recommend an internal inspection at your earliest opportunity.
The small, sought after village of Compton Chamberlayne lies just eight miles to the west of Salisbury in the Nadder Valley.
There is a village hall and cricket pitch in the centre of the village and the church of St Michael stands on a bank overlooking Compton House and a picturesque valley of woods with a lake. The nearby village of Fovant offers good local amenities including a village shop & post office and doctors surgery along with the newly refurbished Greater Good pub.
The Cathedral City of Salisbury sits 8 miles away with its excellent shopping and recreational facilities and a Waitrose Home and Food store. Salisbury station offers a direct line to Waterloo (83 minutes) and the A303 provides access to the South West and to London via the M3.
The location offers fantastic schooling including Chafyn Grove, The Cathedral School, Godolphin Girls School as well as Bishops Wordsworth’s and South Wilts Grammar Schools.
With grounds of just over 0.4 of an acre the cottage sits in an elevated position which increases the level of privacy that the gardens offer, with a detached garage and parking for numerous vehicles. The majority of the grounds lie to one side of the home and are mainly laid to lawn with shrub borders. The gardens to the rear are again laid to lawn with borders and a terrace to enjoy outside entertaining with far reaching views over the village cricket pitch and valley beyond.
