Full description

Tenure: Freehold

With a wealth of history including associations with Charles Dickens, this charming Grade II Listed cottage was refurbished by the Wiltshire Historic Buildings Trust and then sold to the current owner back in 2004. Since then the appeal has been enhanced to now make a delightful home or holiday let opportunity, having been previously and successfully run to award winning standards. The cottage is approached through a side gate from the street or the main vehicular gates from where a door leads into the kitchen/dining room. This double aspect room includes a window seat and a wood burning stove within the fireplace. The handmade units complement the flagstone floor with integrated oven, gas hob and slot in dishwasher. There is also provision for further appliances and a door opens to a stair lobby. From here a step and opening leads to a superb triple aspect sitting room which includes a full height oak framed window to the old coach house door and an oak framed bay to the side. To one corner is a Bath stone fireplace that contrasts with the limestone tiled floor which has under floor heating. There is also a walk-in store cupboard and access to the under stairs area with plumbing for a washing machine. The upper floor is split level with an open vaulted landing from where shelved steps lead to the attic space made up of two areas with skylight and the gas fired combination boiler. On the lower floor is a double aspect guest bedroom with exposed wood floor and panelled headboard to one wall and an ornamental fireplace to the opposite wall. The beautifully vaulted master bedroom is also double aspect with an oval window to the front. The exposed beams are a true feature of this room with the original dovecotes flanking a window to the gable end. The bedrooms are served by the bathroom with power shower and screen over the bath. The floor has limestone tiling adding to the character.


Pickwick is a small hamlet made up of predominantly pretty period stone cottages and houses. Immediate facilities include two good public houses, The Two Pigs and The Hare and Hounds. The attractive town centre of nearby Corsham has many historic buildings built from local stone including a stately home. There is an array of amenities to include good independent shops, a small supermarket, doctor's surgery, leisure centre, churches, excellent state and private schools, eateries and good country walks. All of this is just 9 miles from Bath and 8 miles from Junction 17 of the M4.


The walled courtyard garden not only provides a lovely, private paved sitting area but also ample parking behind the gates for two small vehicles. There is a garden house with power (presently wired for a BMW Electric car charger). There is also a garden store and log stores adjacent to the side gate to the main street.
