The village has a mixture of fine period houses and cottages surrounding the duck pond and Green at the centre of the village. Devizes and Marlborough are both within easy reach and provide a broad range of facilities. Pewsey is 10 miles approximately with a mainline station to Paddington (about 1 hour).

Pear Tree Cottage is a Grade II Listed extended thatched and part tiled cottage, believed to date from the 17th Century, constructed of red brick elevations relieved by both wooden casement and sash windows. The cottage provides well- proportioned rooms with most having views over the pretty garden and village. The current owners have sympathetically refurbished the property cleverly combining the abundance of period features including exposed beams, wooden floors, limestone flagstones, high ceilings, inglenook fireplaces, sash windows and period panelling with contemporary style to create a truly stunning family home.
The panelled entrance hall opens to both the charming dual aspect sitting room with a large inglenook fireplace and open fire and the family room/snug with a wood burning stove set into an inglenook fireplace. The juxtaposition between period and contemporary is best illustrated in the
kitchen with a stunning bespoke fitted kitchen hand painted in Little Greene English Heritage with marble work surfaces, a superb larder cupboard and 2 large Brittania stainless steel ovens. The fitted window bench with storage provides ample
seating in the breakfast room with space for a very large kitchen table. From the kitchen secondary stairs rise to the first floor. From the entrance hall stairs lead to the first floor where there are 4 well-proportioned double bedrooms and 2 family
bathrooms (with underfloor heating). The house extends to the second floor off the main landing to 2 newly decorated and carpeted good sized attic rooms that with the necessary planning consents would provide a lovely bedroom suite. The property boosts a fantastic cellar with good ceiling height, natural light, a sink, plumbing for a washing machine and a large window.
The house is situated on a private road just off the High Street and benefits from a gravelled parking area for up to 3 cars, a single oak framed garage and a studio currently used as an office with
cloakroom. There is an attractive garden mainly laid to lawn with well stocked flower beds, fruit trees and shrubs around and to the front of the property.
