Tenure: Freehold

WELL COTTAGE Broadmead Lane Crockerton Warminster is a charming period cottage which has Wisteria-clad mellow brick and colourwashed elevations under a tiled roof and benefits from Upvc sealed unit double glazed windows together with Oil-fired central heating to radiators. Well Cottage started life as 2 Longleat Estate cottages since combined and extended to create a comfortable and spacious home which enjoys a unique secluded elevated setting where all main rooms enjoy a sunny Southerly aspect and lovely views. Although offering scope for some updating this is a rare opportunity to acquire a light and airy cottage home with the added bonus of extensive Gardens of circa 0.5 acre. Properties of this nature are rarely available in this part of Crockerton hence the Agents strongly recommend an early accompanied internal inspection in order to avoid disappointment.

LOCATION Well Cottage occupies a secluded elevated location in this most popular of villages, enjoying lovely views and a setting which will appeal to country-lovers and ramblers alike as Crockerton is located on the edge of the Longleat Estate, the ancestral home of the Marquess of Bath and the Thynne family, with its miles of unspoilt country walks and many hundreds of acres of woodland. Closeby is the beautiful Shearwater Lake popular for angling and sailing, whilst the highly regarded village Primary School is just minutes away on foot. The village is served by bus service to Warminster 2 miles to the North with good schooling and excellent shopping facilities - 3 supermarkets including a Waitrose store, and a wide range of other amenities which include a theatre & library, hospital & clinics, and railway station with regular rail services to Salisbury, and then direct to London Waterloo, and to Bath with a direct line on to South Wales. Other main centres in the area include Frome, Trowbridge, Westbury, Bath and Salisbury all within a comfortable driving distance, as are the various Salisbury Plain military bases whilst the A36, A350 and A303 trunk routes provide swift road access throughout the West Country and further afield to London via the A303/M3. Southampton, Bournemouth and Bristol airports are all just over an hour by road.
