Purplebricks are delighted to offer for sale this truly stunning and very well appointed detached thatched cottage located at the foot of the Marlborough Downs.
The Yews, which dates back to the late C17th, was originally two separate farmworkers' cottages as well as a public house and sits within an enviable position of immaculately maintained and mature gardens.
Updated and modernised by the current owners, the cottage retains a wealth of charm and character throughout with features including exposed ceiling beams and inglenook fireplaces.
The accommodation comprises: sitting room with feature inglenook fireplace and stairs to the first floor, snug with feature fireplace and bread oven, study with door to a small courtyard sitting area, store room/cellar, large dining room with feature inglenook fireplace and stairs to the first floor, large breakfast room with modern Rayburn range cooker incorporating central heating boiler, opening into the kitchen which comes complete with electric double oven and induction hob, integral 'fridge/freezer and dishwasher, rear hallway and utility room. To the first floor there are three double bedrooms, a newly fitted bathroom complete with freestanding bath and large shower cubicle, family shower room.
The gardens are a very notable feature of the property and are approximately half an acre in size. Primarily to the side and front of the house, they are beautifully presented as a series of terraces, paved and lawned areas, with a most productive vegetable garden.
The planting provides for year round interest, with unusual specimen shrubs and trees, as well as abundant fruit trees, further enhanced by a well and a spring which feeds a rivulet running through the centre of the garden. Wooded banks with wild flowers frame the plot, providing for a secluded and tranquil garden. A large smithy can be found to the rear of the property as well as two timber sheds.
Located at the end of Horns Lane, the property benefits from ample driveway parking for a number of vehicles.
