A charming period cottage, set in an idyllic location
- Download Brochure
Newton Cottage is a delightful thatched cottage, with three bedrooms and plenty of character, set in an idyllic location alongside the beautiful River Avon. It has been in our clients' occupation for some 30 years during which time they have enhanced it enormously and enjoyed its exceptional location.
The property displays timber beams and an original brick-built fireplace in the sitting room. The ground floor has been extended, with the very successful addition of a light and airy sun room, which has a vaulted ceiling, underfloor heating and bi-fold doors opening onto an area of decking with views of the river - perfect for entertaining and observing wildlife. The kitchen has plenty of storage, an integrated dishwasher and space for all of the necessary appliances, as well as room for a table, perfect for informal dining. There is also a useful utility room on the lower ground for further household appliances, and a separate study which also makes the most of the river views. There is a separate cloakroom on this floor too.
On the first floor there are two double and a single bedroom, two of which have fitted wardrobes. All the bedrooms feature stunning views over the garden and river beyond. The first floor also has a family bathroom.
This property has 0.95 acres of land.
A gravel driveway with adjacent steps leads from the road to the house, providing parking space for several cars, while to the rear there is an impressive, landscaped garden, with an elevated area of timber decking. Rolling lawns, bordered by hedgerows and mature specimen trees, plants and shrubs make for a manageable garden. The lawn leads down to the banks of the River Avon, which gently flows by creating a calming, peaceful atmosphere where one can enjoy the fishing as the riparian owner. There is a diverse range of birds and wildlife to be observed here. In total the whole plot measures approximately 0.95 of an acre.
The property occupies a rural location just outside the small village of Enford, and alongside the beautiful River Avon. Enford has a village hall, a local pub and a parish church, while the nearby village of Netheravon provides a number of everyday amenities, including a local shop and post office, a local pub and a primary school. Further amenities and schooling can be found in Durrington and Amesbury, 4 and 5 miles away respectively. The historic cathedral city of Salisbury is within easy reach, providing an excellent selection of shops (including a Waitrose Food and Home), leisure and cultural facilities along with a range of private and state schools.
The area is well connected by road, with the A345 providing easy access to Salisbury and Malborough (with a further varied range of shopping and schooling facilities), and the A303 offering access to the M3, and towards the west country.
From Salisbury, take the A345/Castle Road northerly direction from the city centre, and continue to follow the A345 for 7.5 miles. Arriving at the Countess Roundabout for the A303, take the second exit to continue on the A345, and follow the A345 for approximately 4.5 miles, after which you will find the property on your right.Read all
