Description

Situation

Nettles is situated in the popular farming village of Stanton St Bernard, with adjoining open countryside. Stanton is a desirable rural village with a scattering of both period and modern houses. It is literally at the heart of the Pewsey Vale, in an area of “Outstanding Natural Beauty” and surrounded by undulating downland and open farmland with spectacular views towards the White Horse. Marlborough is about 9 miles and Devizes is 6 miles. Pewsey is about 5 miles with a good range of amenities for day to day needs including a mainline station to London Paddington (65 minutes approximately). The house has direct access to the surrounding countryside with a myriad of footpaths and bridleways. The Kennet and Avon Canal runs to the south of the village.

Description

An inviting cottage with a stunning balance of period features alongside the convenience of modern living. The exterior has been renovated and extended using traditional brick and flint work methods to retain the character of the property. The interior benefits from combining the traditional with a sympathetically modernised feel and has CAT5 cabling and underfloor heating to the ground floor for a cosy home. Encompassing the homely feel are the bespoke fitted kitchen units and granite work surfaces which benefits from an Aga as well as a separate oven and hob. Of particular note is the delightful triple aspect living room with French doors opening on to the lawn and a feature glazed fireplace which is shared with the dining room. The family room and breakfast room have characterful exposed brick and stone walls and benefit from views of the countryside.

On the first floor there are 4 bedrooms, study and family bathroom with a further ‘Jack and Jill’ shower room.

The fabulous master bedroom suite occupies the whole of the top floor and has a particularly light and spacious feel. It includes a dressing area with a range of bespoke solid oak fitted wardrobes and large contemporary bathroom with roll top bath and separate walk through shower.

Outside

To the side of the property is a detached two and a half bay garage with room above, which has consent for use as an office/gym however, could be used for a variety of purposes. There is parking for 2/3 cars to the front.

The front garden is flanked by buxus hedging and is a combination of brickwork paths to create year round flower beds and lawns. There are a number of mature fruit trees.

The garden wraps around the house on 3 sides with a large York Stone terraced area adjoining the rear of the property. Immediately behind this is an enclosed field of approximately 1 acre suitable for an orchard, a small holding, adaptable for use with animals or to quite simply leave as a meadow to attract the local wildlife.
