A quintessential and handsome semi detached Grade II listed cottage providing an excellent arrangement of family accommodation occupying a glorious plot in the delightful village of Figheldean.
Bluebell Cottage is a perfect example of a traditional thatched Wiltshire cottage with an abundance of character from its 17th century origins. The current owners have sympathetically improved the cottage over the years which includes a new thatch in 2012 and a new oil boiler in 2015. The beautifully styled interior is not only incredibly light and airy but also benefits from excellent ceiling heights throughout. Arranged over two floors, the spacious accommodation consists of a superb sitting room with a beautiful open brick and double doors leading out to the magnificent gardens. The dining room, which provides the access to the sitting room, also has a feature open fireplace and log burner, the wonderful kitchen/breakfast room is fitted with a glorious Rangemaster and the main door to the front of the property. Completing the ground floor accommodation is a welcoming entrance hall and a utility room/cloakroom. There are three sizeable double bedrooms on the first floor all benefiting from built in wardrobes and serviced by a well appointed family bathroom. Additional accommodation can be found in the detached annexe to the side of the property complete with a fitted kitchen, living room/bedroom and a family bathroom. This could have any number of uses, as a granny annexe, teenager suite or an opportunity to generate income.
We highly recommend viewing this charming home, with pristine thatch, immaculate lawns and a wealth of history, this traditional cottage will surely surpass expectations.
Bluebell Cottage is situated within the pretty hamlet of Ablington on the fringes of the popular village of Figheldean which lies in the Avon Valley area of Salisbury Plain near Stonehenge. Figheldean is exceptionally well placed for schools with a highly regarded C of E primary school in the village together with a good choice of state, private, public and grammar schools within the area. A good selection of local shops are within 5 minutes at Bulford, Durrington and Netheravon whilst more extensive facilities are on offer in Amesbury. There are leisure facilities in Durrington and Amesbury including swimming pool and a number of gyms. The area is surrounded by outstanding walking, riding, cycling and fishing opportunities. Further afield are the Cathedral city of Salisbury 12 miles to the South and Marlborough 15 miles to the North. There are stations within easy reach on the London Waterloo and West coast line and London Paddington. The nearby A303 offers direct access to the West Country and London and the M3 to the East. This part of Wiltshire is understandably popular for its beauty and accessibility.
The property is accessed via an expansive gravel drive providing parking for several vehicles, there is a beautiful rose garden to the front of the property and a wooden fence providing privacy. A pedestrian gate gives access to the incredible rear garden which was professionally redesigned last year to include railway sleeper borders, new trellis and a rose arch. A generous sandstone patio sits immediately outside the sitting room and disperses itself to either side of the room. A raised seating area, which is adjacent to the annexe, can be found to the right of the sitting room and a further seating area can be found to the left with access to a covered porch and log store. Steps up lead to a lawned area which has been planted with glorious, well stocked bespoke flower beds, apple trees and a damson tree adding colour to the garden. Further steps lead up to an additional area of lawn with a rose arch leading the way to the vegetable beds and a gravelled area with a chicken run. In addition to the parking to the front of the cottage, to the rear is a separate access to a garage with loft storage, power and light.
