A stunning family house set in beautiful gardens and grounds on the edge of the village
Holly Tree Cottage is a delightful detached property with red-brick and tile-hung elevations, situated on the edge of Little Bedwyn in an area of outstanding natural beauty. The property offers spacious and flexible accommodation, as well as retaining a number of traditional period features. The ground floor accommodation flows from a welcoming reception hall with parquet flooring and an attractive inglenook fireplace, and leads through to a charming drawing room with a lovely fireplace and log burner and French doors opening out onto the beautiful parterre and gardens beyond. A second smaller reception room is currently being used as a playroom but would work equally well as a study/office. At the heart of the house there is a fabulous kitchen/dining/living area with a large seating area, a log burner and doors opening onto the terrace and gardens. The kitchen is fitted with bespoke cabinets and a range style cooker and there is a useful walk-in larder. To the side of the main house there is a further living area/potential annexe on the ground floor, comprising a good sized living/kitchen area and a double bedroom and shower room. Upstairs the principal bedroom has a spacious en suite bathroom and wonderful views across the gardens. There are three further bedrooms, all of good proportions and a family shower room.
Holly Tree Cottage is set in the most beautiful gardens and grounds, combining a mix of formal lawns, mature yew hedges and a box hedge parterre with herbaceous borders, mature trees and hedges and a wild meadow area to the side. A gate leads directly out to the Kennet and Avon Canal giving access to wonderful walks direct from the garden. There is a useful garden store beside the vegetable garden and a further garden shed and log store. The property is approached from the village lane via a gravel 'in and out' drive.
The property is located on the edge of the small village of Little Bedwyn, surrounded by rolling countryside and beside the beautiful Kennet and Avon Canal offering a range of scenic walks and cycle paths. Nearby Great Bedwyn offers a range of day-to-day amenities including a post office, village shop, a doctors surgery and pub. Marlborough and Hungerford provide a more extensive range of local facilities and shopping options including several restaurants, cafes and pubs, as well as a Waitrose supermarket. Great Bedwyn provides direct train services into London Paddington in approximately 75 minutes. Road connections are also very good, with the M4 (Junction 14) linking easily with London and the national road networks. There is an excellent choice of schools in the area, including Stepping Stones Nursery at Froxfield, Great Bedwyn primary, St Johns Marlborough, Marlborough College, St Francis Pewsey and Pinewood.
From Newbury follow the A4 towards Marlborough, and after passing through Hungerford continue for approximately 3 miles and take the left turn signposted to Little Bedwyn just before reaching Froxfield. Follow this road for approximately 1 mile and the property will be found on the right-hand side shortly before you reach Little Bedwyn.Read all
