Charming Riverside Home in sought after Wylye Valley
Riverside Cottage has been in the same family since its purchase from the Pembroke Estate in 1920. It sits in a secluded position, down a no-through lane, with the River Wylye running behind the cottage. Built of stone and brick under a clay tile-hung roof, it was extended in 1990 and is presented in good order throughout, but also offers huge potential to update.
A spacious hall offers direct access to the principal rooms. The sitting room has a large inglenook fireplace, with original bread oven, and houses a wood-burning stove. There are French doors onto a sheltered stone terrace. The dining room sits opposite and also opens through to the kitchen/breakfast room, which has a range of wall and floor units, an Aga and a butlers sink. Adjacent is a utility room, with a range of cupboards, butlers sink, plumbing for a washing machine and a stable door into the garden. A cloakroom/WC completes the ground floor.
Upstairs is a galleried landing, with windows overlooking the river, and benefitting from two large airing cupboards. The dual-aspect principal bedroom has fitted wardrobes and an en suite bathroom.
There are two further double bedrooms, both with fitted wardrobes, a family bathroom and a separate shower room.
The garden is predominantly laid to lawn with mature trees, including apple and pear. Traditional staddle stones line the boundary with the lane. There is a sheltered stone terrace to one side of the property and the river runs behind. There is potential, with the relevant consents, to build a timber-framed car port/garage to one side of the garden.
