A charming Grade II Listed detached cottage with annexe and delightful gardens

Believed to date to mid-17th century and featuring square-panelled timber-framing with painted brick nogging and a thatched roof, Milestone Cottage is a picture-perfect village cottage, offering period characteristics presented in harmony with up-to-date interior styling.

The sitting room is centred around an impressive inglenook fireplace with woodburning stove, whilst the adjoining dining room offers the ideal surrounds for hosting friends and family. With a painted stone wall and historic bread oven niche, the kitchen is fitted with modern wall and base level cabinetry, topped with wood work surfaces, and features a Belfast sink, with ancillary space provided by a cellar offering additional storage for domestic items, or perhaps fine wine collections. Two staircases rise to the first floor accommodation, where the principal bedroom has a charming, ornate fireplace and stylish en suite shower room. There are three further bedrooms, one of which is currently being used as a spacious study, and a well-appointed family bathroom. The timber outbuilding provides garaging and versatile supplemental accommodation, and includes a conservatory currently used a gym, with adjoining study and cloakroom.


A low stone wall fronts the lane, with clipped evergreen bushes and the Grade II Listed milestone dated to 1840 features alongside the cottage. A driveway to the side provides the approach to the site and offers an area of parking in addition to the sheltered halt of the garage. The rear garden offers an outdoor sanctuary and features swathes of lawn, a low stone wall encircling a specimen willow tree, hedging to the boundaries and a dividing hedge with access via five-bar gates through to a naturalistic area of garden with mown walkways offering a pleasant meander through the grounds. Paving adjoins the cottage, bordered by a row of fragrant lavender bushes and steps lead up to a larger terrace to the side which offers opportunities for outdoor dining and relaxation whilst enjoying the southerly aspect.


Milestone Cottage is situated in the tranquil village of Tytherington in the Wylye Valley and positioned within easy reach of the village of Heytesbury which offers a convenience store with post office, a public house and a primary school. The market town of Warminster is within easy reach and provides a broad selection of recreational, cultural and everyday facilities, including independent shops, a Waitrose supermarket, several restaurants, a library, a sports centre and an art theatre. Communications are excellent with the A303/A36 being easily accessible providing routes to London and the West Country, whilst mainline rail services run from Warminster and Salisbury to London Waterloo.

Historic Salisbury and Bath are also within easy reach, providing a comprehensive range of amenities and well-regarded schooling in the vicinity includes Bishopstrow College, Warminster School, Leehurst Swan School, Godolphin School and Salisbury Cathedral School.


From Salisbury, join the A36 to the north of the city and follow the road for approximately 14 miles. Take the left turn at the sign-post for Corton and continue for approximately 3 miles to Tytherington. Bear left and the property will be found after a short distance on the left.
