About this property

  • Believed to date from the late 1800's, Apple Tree Cottage has recently undergone a significant programme of renovation and extension, during which great care has been taken by the current owner to preserve and enhance the original character of the cottage, while creating a light-filled home, more suited to modern-day living.

    The glass and timber extension allows an abundance of light inside and leads you into an open plan drawing/dining room, with oak floorboards and large bi-fold doors opening on to the stone terrace and garden beyond. The adjoining snug is a cosy room with a fireplace, original cupboards decorated with ornate stone masonry rescued from nearby Lacock Abbey. The charming triple-aspect kitchen/breakfast room has wooden cabinetry, granite worktops, an electric aga, double butler sink, a larder and oak floorboards. Completing the ground floor is a useful study with a quarry tiled floor, leading to a cloakroom.

    Upstairs, the principal bedroom has an original fireplace, fitted cupboard and a light en suite shower room with oak floorboards. There are two further double bedrooms overlooking the garden.

    The family bathroom has a free-standing cast iron roll-top bath and painted original wooden floorboards.

    Apple Tree Cottage sits in the centre of the sought-after village known as Chitterne. A gravel driveway offers parking in front of the oak-framed garage, which also incorporates an open-fronted wood-store and an integral shed/workshop. The part-walled rear garden looks out over farmland and is mainly laid to lawn, with deep herbaceous borders. The front of the cottage is bordered by a pathway, with lavender and rose bushes.
