This is a very attractive and very well presented detached cottage, on the edge of this popular village, backing onto open fields and tucked away at the end of a gated driveway. The ground floor offers good sized reception rooms. This is immediately made apparent on entering the main sitting room that was previously two rooms that have been opened into one great space, with a large fireplace at one end. The dining room, with stripped wooden floors leads through to a glazed conservatory at one side of the house. On the far side of the house is the fitted kitchen with AGA, that leads through to the rear of the house with a utility room and shower room. Upstairs are four bedrooms and a family bathroom. A gated driveway sweeps around the front of the house towards the garaging and a gravel parking area. The garage block creates space for two cars with an additional single garage that has been used currently as a studio/office with a further store room off it. The front garden faces south with a selection of pretty trees to include a selection of ornamental and fruit trees, together with flower borders. At the side of the garden is a swimming pool which is positioned next to a round paved terrace underneath a pergola, creating a lovely place to relax and entertain on sunnier days.

Pear Tree Cottage is situated on the edge of the village of Whitley, backing onto open farmland and enjoying views across countryside. The village itself benefits from amenities including a Post Office, shop and the renowned Pear Tree Inn. An excellent primary school is in the adjoining village of Shaw.

The nearby towns of Corsham, Melksham and Bradford on Avon provide an array of amenities with various retail outlets, supermarkets and sporting facilities. Whilst the Georgian city of Bath lies approximately 10 miles away and boasts a comprehensive range of facilities. Both the city of Bath and the nearby town of Chippenham have mainline railway stations providing direct access to London Paddington and the M4 motorway junctions 17 and 18 are approximately 10 and 16 miles away respectively.

From Bath, proceed on the A365 towards Melksham and pass through the village of Atworth. At the junction with traffic lights turn left towards Whitley. Take the first road on your left, called First Lane. Go to the end of this road, at the T junction with the Pear Tree Inn opposite you turn left. Go past Littleworth Lane on your right and after approximately 150 meters turn right down a short track where the drive is found between two bungalows.
