A charming and quietly situated Grade II listed detached thatched cottage, in the desirable village of Wilcot
52 Wilcot is a very English country cottage, set adjacent to the Kennet and Avon canal on a quiet, no-through lane in the sought after village of Wilcot, 2 miles from Pewsey. Wilcot is situated at the heart of the Pewsey Vale surrounded by rolling countryside and set within a Conservation Area within the North Wessex Downs area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. It has a well-regarded pub, The Golden Swan, and a church, whilst Pewsey is a large village with varied retail amenities and the considerable advantage of a commuter rail station (Paddington about 1 hour).

52 Wilcot is a pretty Grade II listed detached cottage, traditionally built of brick and flint elevations under a thatched roof, with painted hardwood casement windows. The cottage has been the subject of a comprehensive programme of refurbishment, and now presents a welcoming beamed sitting room with an open fireplace, exposed brickwork, oak flooring and views out onto the front garden. The well-proportioned kitchen/dining room has a quarry tiled floor, with double doors leading to the paved garden area, and a door through to the utility room. A smart family bathroom completes the downstairs accommodation. On the first floor there are two double bedrooms, both with good views, and featuring vaulted ceilings and exposed floorboards, together with an upstairs cloakroom. Character and period features are plentiful, and these are complemented by a heritage colour scheme throughout. The cottage is beautifully presented, and offers idyllic and secluded country living.

At the bottom of the garden is the picturesque Kennet and Avon canal, and lovely views across open farmland. The rear garden has a shed and a green house, and a small area of garden.
