Full descriptionA delightful period home with a super feeling of charm & character situated in a particularly desirable rural village with versatile accommodation, scope for refurbishment & lovely gardens.
Swallow Cottage is a detached period house thought to have originally been a row of traditional workers’ cottages with local stone external elevations under a clay tiled roof. Over the years it has been substantially altered and extended to create one good-sized home which the present owner has made a number of improvements to but at the same time retaining the intrinsic cottagey character and charm. The property now represents a good opportunity for someone else to update and take it forward further.
The rather unusually laid out accommodation is arranged over two floors and offers considerable versatility as to how it can be utilised. The split-level ground floor includes on the South side of the house; a welcoming reception hall, a study which leads on to the sitting room with a fireplace, parquet floor and onto a snug/hall which gives access to a dining/family room. On the lower ground floor and accessed from the reception hall is an area that could be used as an annexe and comprises of an office/lobby, bedroom and bathroom. At the other end of the property is a fitted kitchen with a larder, a large covered outside storage area, cloakroom and utility/store. There are two staircases to the first floor which has four bedrooms, three of which are interconnecting and a bathroom.
A particular joy of the property are the delightfully landscaped, gently sloping gardens to the rear and side with a stone and brick paved terrace to the back of the house, areas of lawn, well established borders stocked with an interesting variety of flowers, shrubs and roses, various ornamental, fruit and mature trees, garden shed and store. To the front are more borders and a detached double garage.
Swallow Cottage is situated in a no-through lane off the attractive broad tree lined High Street of the ever sought after and thriving conservation village of Hindon with its mix of old brick and Chilmark stone houses and cottages. The village’s excellent facilities include a community run shop/post office, primary school, doctor’s surgery, church, playground and two well-known dining pubs; The Lamb and The Angel. The larger village of Tisbury is just three miles away and has good everyday shopping and local amenities as well as a station with mainline rail services to London (Waterloo).
The North Dorset Saxon hilltop market town of Shaftesbury is nearby and has a good range of shops, supermarkets, eateries, an up and coming secondary school, cottage hospital and is famous for the picturesque steeply cobbled street of Gold Hill. The medieval cathedral city of Salisbury has more comprehensive shopping, arts & leisure facilities and a district hospital. The area’s other principal towns including Bath, Blandford, Sherborne and Warminster are all accessible via the local road network as is the South Coast, West Country and motorway network. Many families are drawn to South Wiltshire by the excellent choice of state and private schools. There are regional airports at Bournemouth, Bristol and Southampton.
Set amidst the particularly attractive undulating countryside of the Nadder Valley, part of the Cranborne Chase and West Wiltshire Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Hindon is an excellent base from which to explore the many miles of local footpaths and bridleways and there are a variety of rural pursuits available including walking, riding, cycling and fishing. Sailing can be found at Shearwater near Warminster, racing is at Salisbury, Bath and Wincanton and golf at Tollard Royal, Warminster and Salisbury. There are several excellent dining pubs in the vicinity as well as many places of interest such as the Longleat Estate, Old Wardour Castle, Stourhead Gardens, Fovant Badges and Stonehenge.
