A fine example of period, modern and contemporary styling, Bunbury Cottage is a lovely, detached, characterful home enjoying a prominent position within the hugely popular village of Pitton. Originally a pair of thatched farm labourers cottages, the property has undergone an extensive programme of modernisation and improvements including, in 2001, the addition of a substantial two storey rear extension.

The accommodation flows well with a large triple aspect sitting room which has bespoke fitted cabinetry, exposed original timbers and a fireplace with inset log burner. The kitchen was completely remodelled and refitted in 2004 by Messrs Jones and Company of Salisbury with an extensive range of oak cabinets, emerald black granite worktops and travertine flooring. There is also a handmade bespoke dresser which will remain. The dining room is generous in proportion with French doors opening onto a patio/seating area. There is also a large utility room and a ground floor bathroom with contemporary fittings.

There are four generous bedrooms on the first floor, the master bedroom and ensuite are within the modern two storey extension, the three remaining bedrooms, including a fabulous guest bedroom, are all contained within the original period property and all have an excellent outlook/views.

There is a wealth of character and original features within Bunbury Cottage including ledge and brace internal doors and an extensive array of bespoke handmade wardrobes, cupboards, radiator covers and window seats. All the windows have been replaced with double glazed units installed by Salisbury Glass in the late 1990s - some of the windows are fitted with excellent quality plantation blinds including the French doors of the dining room.

The cottage is set within attractive landscaped gardens extending to approximately 0.25 acre. To the front is a typical cottage garden with lawn flower beds and shrubbery. There is also a detached garage and private drive/parking. The garden extends round to the side and through to the rear and with excellent views over the village and surrounding countryside.

The village of Pitton forms part of the Pitton and Farley Parish which lies some five miles to the east of the cathedral city of Salisbury. Surrounded by rolling countryside the village itself offers a range of facilities including a general store and Post Office, thriving village hall, sports fields and tennis courts and a well regarded local Inn, The Silver Plough. The village church, St Peter, in its original form predates Salisbury Cathedral although most of the current structure dates from around 1860. The award winning Pitton Church of England Voluntary Aided Primary School is just off the village centre, is hugely popular and extremely well regarded. Neighbouring communities include the villages of Farley, The Winterslows, Tytherley and Firsdown. Salisbury offers a more comprehensive range of cultural and recreational amenities, shopping facilities, market on Tuesdays and Saturdays and a wide range of schooling, both state and private, including two grammar schools and a college of further education. Salisbury has a mainline railway station, also stopping at Grateley, serving London, Waterloo and the West Country. Although a rural environment, access to the M3 and M25 is easily obtained via the A303 to the northeast and to Southampton via the A36/M27 to the south.

Tenure: Freehold. Local Authority: Wiltshire Council. Council tax band E - £1,985.27 for year 2017/2018. Mains electricity, water and drainage are connected. Oil central heating. Fully double glazed.

From the Cathedral City of Salisbury proceed in a north easterly direction along the A30. Continue for approximately 2 miles turning right on the crest of the hill signposted Pitton. Continue to follow the road into the village passing the village school on the right hand side. Continue across the narrow bridge, through the village and continue up White Hill to the Silver Plough Inn on the left hand side. Turn left immediately after the Silver Plough into The Green, Bunbury Cottage will be found immediately on the right hand side clearly identified for sale by the Baxters For Sale sign. For ease of access we would suggest parking in the Silver Plough customers car park which is only a short walk from the property.

As part of the Planning Consent granted for the two storey rear extension approval was also given to demolish the existing garage and replace it with anew larger structure.

Prospective buyers should note that a design has been drawn up for the addition of an Orangery/Garden room which would be accessible from the existing sitting room. The design has been prepared by Messrs Montpelier Joinery who would be pleased to speak with interested parties should they wish to proceed with the planning process. The extent of the additional area is shown on the floor plan shaded yellow. Further information can be obtained by contacting Montpelier Joinery on 01384 279933 - Mr A Cole.
