Yew Tree Cottage is an enchanting Grade II listed, 17th century thatched cottage which embodies the quintessential English country style. This treasured family home has been owned by the same family since 1975 and, with its peaceful village location; well-stocked, sunny garden and comfortable living space, it is not hard to see why.
You approach the cottage through the front garden of beautiful rose arches, lawns and herbaceous borders and then enter via a light and airy sunroom into the study and front hall. The sitting room and separate dining room simply ooze character with exposed beams and, in the sitting room, a lovely inglenook fireplace. The dining room has a small reading porch through which there is easy access to the garden and patio. The large farmhouse style kitchen has a back porch leading out into the kitchen garden and a door leading through to the utility room, shower room and third bedroom.
Upstairs the large master bedroom has unusually high ceilings for a thatched cottage and this gives a great sense of space. There is a walk-in wardrobe and an airing cupboard and potential to re-instate a disused fireplace in this room to further add to the character. The second double bedroom has equally high ceilings and the white suite family bathroom provides beautiful views across to the Pewsey Downs.
The garden wraps around the house and provides mature flower beds, lawn and patio areas on all the East, South and West facing sides enabling you to make the most of every drop of sunshine.There are two useful sheds, a greenhouse, well-stocked fruit cage, vegetable beds and a working well with a pretty thatched roof of its own. The garage is accessed via a driveway to the side of the house with electronic up and over door and a parking space in front.
A truly unique home full of history and character.
