Description - Flint Cottage is a Grade II Listed semi-detached thatched cottage (which we believe dates back to the late 16th century) and has attractive brick and flint elevations. The property is in need of some modernisation and offers extremely well proportioned accommodation which can be improved and altered to suit a buyers particular tastes. The property itself has been completely re-thatched within the last five years and the property also benefits from gas fired central heating. On the ground floor there are four reception rooms with the dining hallway having an impressive inglenook fireplace with exposed beam, and there is also a sitting room and a family room both having dual aspects and open fireplaces. There is also a study. The kitchen/breakfast room has space for a table and chairs and there is a breakfast bar and gas fired Aga. Also on the ground floor is a shower room. On the first floor there are four bedrooms, with the two principal bedrooms enjoying a double aspect and the main bedroom in particular enjoying an interrupted view towards Old Sarum. There is also a bathroom and a separate WC. The property also enjoys gas fired central heating, secondary glazed windows and has a number of character features including exposed beams. The garden is a particular feature of the property having attractive flower borders and a rear access gate leading into the field behind the garden (see Agents note). In addition, there is a driveway providing off-road parking for several cars in front of the large detached garage. Directly behind the property is a useful outhouse divided into two separate areas, with the larger share having a shower cubicle and sink and the other being used as a useful garden store. Stratford-sub-Castle is a popular village lying on the northern outskirts of the city into which there is a regular bus service. The centre of Salisbury lies approximately two miles away and has an excellent range of amenities including a main line railway station serving London Waterloo.

Agents Note: The field immediately to the rear of Flint Cottage is owned by a small private limited company whose shareholders comprise other owners of properties along Stratford Road which abut the field. There are five shareholders, including the owners of Flint Cottage, and the field was purchased to protect the views across to the Old Sarum monument from these properties. The land is now let, and has been for many years, on a Farm Business Tenancy, and it is the intention of the remaining owners/shareholders that this will continue indefinitely. Consequently there would be no rights to occupy for any purchaser of Flint Cottage. The farmer takes hay or silage and grazes sheep.
