An absolutely charming period village cottage, refurbished and presented to a very high standard in this ever popular Woodford Valley village offering accommodation of entrance hall, drawing room, dining room, sitting room, kitchen, lobby, utility, cloakroom, master bedroom with en-suite shower room, three further bedrooms and a family
bathroom. The house’s origins are believed to be at least 400yrs old, with a later addition in the early 1800s and our vendor’s most recent additions. The latest phase has recently been completed with the erection of a stunning detached oak framed double garage with a studio/annexe/bedroom 5 with en-suite over. The current owners have invested much care and attention to detail and have retained many of the house’s original period features including a large open Inglenook fireplace, exposed beams and have complimented these with the addition of a mixture of stylish, contemporary and more traditional materials. The majority of external windows and doors are now double-glazed hardwood, with oak skirting throughout the ground floor. Much of the ground floor also has under-floor heating and the house is painted through in Farrow & Ball colours. The house is fitted with an integral mains wired smoke and burglar alarm. There is also valid planning permission in place for a further side extension to the main house.
The Woodford Valley is a highly regarded and sought after area to the north of Salisbury and encompasses three small villages; Upper, Middle and Lower Woodford. The east of the parish is marked by the River Avon and to the west by the old Salisbury to Devizes link road. The surrounding countryside is beautiful and interspersed with picturesque villages and a number of excellent walks and cycle rides, as well as byways for horse riding. Middle Woodford lies at the heart of the Valley and is a quintessential village with an active community and ample facilities including a church, a well-regarded primary school (OFSTED Outstanding February 2009), a bus stop and a number of societies. There are two popular public houses in the Woodfords, and a short distance there is also a garage with shop. The Cathedral City of Salisbury is about 4 miles away offering a variety of regionally recognised retail, cultural and educational establishments all within easy reach as well as a range of award winning restaurants, bars and a lively twice weekly farmers market. An outstanding variety of leisure facilities are available nearby including golf, fishing, walking and riding. The mainline station to London and the West is an easy 10min drive, and the A303 is also only 4 miles away offering access to the M3 and the West Country.
Access off the village lane leads to the entrance porch and front door, to either side of which there are stone edged raised gravelled borders with posts linked by decorative chain and staddle stone. Immediately beside the cottage there are twin electric remote controlled (operable by mobile phone) gates which open onto a gravelled driveway and a further resin-bound gravel drive leading to the garage, with three ground level PIR up lighters to side of house and drive and PIR security light to the rear of house and garage/annexe. In between the driveways there is a large raised border containing plants and shrubs retained by brick walls. Behind the property curved stone steps rise to a patio area (ideal for ‘al fresco’ eating and barbecues) off which there is direct access onto the garden, lying predominantly to the rear of the house which is lawned with shrub borders and a knot garden. There is a brand new package treatment plant that meets the new regulations. Accessed from the driveway and via a path from the house is the new detached oak framed double garage with a studio/annexe over, currently used as a home office, and attached to which is a bespoke greenhouse by Cultivar. This superb building offers an incredible amount of flexibility be that for teenagers or relatives as additional accommodation or as a fully functioning home office or studio or perhaps as a holiday let (STP). The building offers Cat 6 connection for broadband, telephone and Sky, along with mains wired smoke alarms.
