Full description

An outstanding two bedroomed grade II listed cottage enjoying views over open countryside.

The Property - 15 Compton Bassett is a Grade II listed cottage built in 1863 as staff accommodation for the Manor House and farm. It is the middle of three cottages with large front gardens, rear courtyards and an adjoining garden room/studio to the rear. The property has been sympathetically improved whilst retaining much original character and charm by the current owners.
After parking on the verge opposite the cottage, we go through the gate into the front garden. This measures approximately 70' x 40' and could, subject to permission, have an area formed to provide off road parking if required. Walk down the path to the handsome front porch. Looking left and right you may notice the boundary stepping in either side, a historical quirk forming the edge of a large flower and shrub bed.

The Accommodation - Through the front door into a small hallway with flagstone floor, turning left we walk into the sitting room which enjoys views over the garden, a lovely open fireplace and fitted wood burning stove. The flagstone floor with underfloor heating runs through to the dining room again with a window to the front and has an original fireplace. Step down into the kitchen which has been refitted with quality kitchen units and a hardwood work surface, underhung Belfast sink and mixer tap over. Space for an electric cooker and a fridge freezer, two windows and a solid wood door to the rear courtyard. Turning left into the utility room with staircase rising to the first floor, hardwood work surface, plumbing for the washing machine and dishwasher. Straight on into the bathroom which has been recently refitted with an attractive modern white suite with separate shower over the bath, window to the rear and a heated towel rail for year round warm towels! OK that is downstairs, back into the utility room and right up the staircase. Up onto the landing with small window overlooking the front garden, right into the second bedroom. A double bedroom with window to the rear and a built in storage cupboard. Straight over the landing into the main bedroom, again with a window to the rear, built in wardrobe, airing cupboard and storage cupboard. Back down the staircase and through the kitchen into the rear garden.

Rear Garden, Garden Room And Terrace - Gravelled courtyard with a large sitting area, path to the garden room. Forming the central part of three adjoining sheds the central area of the building has undergone a sympathetic program of improvements with full height windows and doors to the front and rear, wooden floor and lighting. Double doors open through shutters onto an area laid to lawn and could be made into a lovely raised sitting area as it enjoys breathtaking views over open fields and hills facing the setting sun.

Compton Bassett - At the time of the writing of the Domesday Book in 1086, this was Contone and derives from two Saxon words, cumb (short, broad valley) and tun (settlement). Bassett comes from Fulke Basset who owned land here in the 13th century. The village has a delightful Pub with an excellent restaurant and the area has recently featured in the news due to the singer Robbie Williams purchasing the Manor House. Whilst off the beaten track the village has excellent road access to Swindon, Calne and Marlborough.
