Full description

A superb character detached cottage (formerly three cottages) centrally located within this popular Woodford Valley village. The property has been sympathetically extended and offers an excellent range of well proportioned accommodation with the benefit of gardens, off road parking and oil fired central heating.

Directions - Leave our office in Castle Street in a northerly direction away from the city centre and at the roundabout continue forwards into Castle Road. At the first set of traffic lights turn left onto Stratford Road and proceed through the villages of Stratford sub Castle, Lower and Middle Woodford. Upon entering Upper Woodford turn right before taking the first left hand turn signposted to Great Durnford. Proceed into the village passing the Black Horse public house on the left hand side and take the next right into Jubilee Hill. The Cottage can be found after a short distance on the right hand side.

Description - The Cottage is a lovely character detached cottage set in good sized gardens and centrally situated within this popular village. The property has been extended and offers further scope for extension/improvement and has an excellent range of well proportioned accommodation arranged over two floors. The layout of the rooms is very adaptable as one of the two staircases accesses a large bedroom with a dressing area and en-suite shower room below which is a second kitchen. This potentially separate accommodation could provide useful rental income and has a separate access to the side of the house. The accommodation on the ground floor comprises: an entrance hallway which leads to a sitting room which has a triple aspect and a large inglenook fireplace with an inset wood-burner. There is a dining room which leads both to a family room with a wood-burner and to a kitchen/breakfast room. The kitchen has an oil fired Aga and there is space for a table and chairs. This in turn leads to a utility area and a downstairs shower room. There are two separate staircases and as previously mentioned, one leads to the potential annexe accommodation. The remainder of the first floor accommodation comprises three good sized bedrooms, a study and a family bathroom with a white suite. Externally there is a driveway to the rear of the property and another vehicular access with a gravelled parking area to the side of the house. The cottage lies side onto the road so the main area of lawned garden lies to the front of the property where there is also a pleasant patio area. Behind the property there is a detached garage with a useful store room/workshop behind. The property lies in the most glorious position in this small village set in the heart of the sought after Woodford Valley. The village has a popular public house and there are further public houses in the nearby villages of Upper Woodford and Lower Woodford. Salisbury lies approximately 5 miles to the south and has an excellent range of amenities whilst Amesbury and the A303 lie within easy access to the north.
