Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Pikes Cottage is thought to have been built in the 18th Century and was originally two farm workers cottages that were then combined to create a more substantial home filled with much of the original character. The current owner has lived in Pikes Cottage for the last 30 years and the cottage has been lovingly cared for over their tenure.

The ground floor is well laid out with a good sized kitchen/breakfast room with ample storage, a breakfast bar and dual aspect windows. Through the kitchen is a large utility room providing direct access out to the terrace and a back door leading to the side of the property. There is also a large walk-in larder and a cloakroom.

A dual aspect dining room leads off the kitchen with exposed beams and French doors opening out on to the terrace, making this a perfect space for entertaining. This room leads into the light entrance hall and spacious sitting room, completing the well-proportioned living and reception space. The sitting room also has a Jetmaster and an impressive fitted wall unit with bookshelves either side. The exterior study is attached to the main house but entered through a separate door. Windows on three walls help to create a light and airy working environment with a phone line and internet connection.

On the first floor is the master bedroom which is dual aspect and has large fitted wardrobes with an adjoining bathroom. A further family bathroom is located at the other end of the corridor. Two additional double bedrooms and a twin room complete the accommodation on the first floor.

Pikes Cottage is situated in the pretty and peaceful village of West Amesbury. The nearby Woodford Valley offers extensive opportunities for walking and cycling along with additional bridleways for riding. The market town of Amesbury is 2 miles from Pikes Cottage and provides most day to day requirements. The cathedral city of Salisbury offers a wider range of cultural, shopping and entertainment facilities including several theatres, a cinema and a City Hall. Excellent travel communications are provided by the nearby A303, linking to the M3 and thus providing direct access to London. There are main line railway stations to London Waterloo from both Salisbury and Grately, both about 9 miles away.

There are a number of well-regarded schools in the area, both private and state. In Salisbury these include; Chafyn Grove, Leaden Hall, Godolphin, South Wilts for Girls Grammar School and Bishop Wordsworth's. Further afield there are Farleigh, Port Regis, Sandroyd, St Mary's Shaftesbury, Bryanston and Marlborough to name but a few.

The house is approached through new wooden electric gates where there is ample parking and a double garage. A large sunken westerly facing terrace lies to the back of the house, providing the perfect space for alfresco dining. The terrace is built for entertaining with outdoor power sockets and plenty of mature flowerbeds. The rest of the garden is mostly laid to lawn with a Portuguese Laurel established along the back boundary line.
