About this property

  • Appletree Cottage is a truly delightful Grade II listed detached cottage with the original parts dating back to the 16th century with extensions in the 19th century and more recently the addition of a magnificent light green oak kitchen/family room.

    There is a wonderful first impression on arrival through the solid electrically operated gated entrance and first sight of the pretty cottage and the two significant outbuildings spaced around the gravel parking and turning area.

    The cottage is certainly deceptively spacious and beautifully decorated with a wealth of original charm and character together with modern comforts such as air conditioning throughout.

    The welcoming reception hall, with the staircase to the first floor, provides access to the two more formal reception rooms – the triple aspect drawing room with a bay window and feature inglenook fireplace with a wood burner and bread oven. The sitting room also has a fireplace and wood burner which then leads to the L shaped dining room with under floor heating and French doors on to the terrace. This then leads to the kitchen/breakfast/family room, a stunning open plan room with an abundance of light oak beams and vaulted ceiling, ideal space for both family living and entertaining with a bay and French doors opening on to the terrace. The floor tiles with under floor heating are from Artisans of Devizes and there is another wood burner at the far end. The bespoke fitted kitchen in ‘Pippy Oak' with granite worktops and breakfast bar incorporate a gas fired Aga with an electric companion incorporating an induction hob and twin ovens. There are Miele appliances and a Fisher & Paykel American style fridge/freezer. The cloakroom/utility room is in matching oak and granite.

    On the first floor there are three double bedrooms, the main with a well appointed en suite bathroom with both a bath and walk-in shower as well as a dressing room (optional fourth bedroom) with fitted wardrobes. The other two bedrooms, with vaulted ceilings and fitted wardrobes, share a contemporary shower room.

    There are two significant outbuildings offering additional space to the main cottage and a great degree of flexibility for storage of classic cars, leisure, fitness, hobbies and home working.

    Triple Garage: With three electrically operated entrance doors and an internal staircase leading to an air conditioned room above which spans the whole area with storage cupboards and
    feature triangular window.

    Outbuilding: The most recent addition with two open car bays and a ground floor office and cloak/shower room with a staircase to the first floor where there is a sitting room and bedroom with skylights and an en suite WC. This building is also air conditioned. Externally there is a gardeners WC.

    Gardens & Grounds: Undoubtedly a further feature of the cottage is the large terrace and gardens which are south facing.

    There are extensive areas of lawn with mature trees and shrubs including along the front boundary which together with the solid entrance gates gives a high degree of privacy.

    Beyond the gardens, which extend to over two acres are open farm fields.
