- Download Brochure
Yew Tree Cottage is an outstanding example of a late 17th Century artisan thatched property. Featuring latch doors, beams, an inglenook fireplace and exposed stonework, this charming home offers elegant, light living space arranged over two floors. With oak flooring to all of the ground floor, the spacious, beamed sitting room offers dual aspect views with a window seat and an inglenook fireplace with wood-burning stove.
The separate dining room features painted wooden beams and in-built storage created in a former fireplace. The light-filled country style kitchen has beamed ceilings and an exposed brickwork hearth housing a range oven with Shaker-style cabinets, oak worktops, a twin ceramic butler sink and a peninsular breakfast bar. A cloakroom completes the ground floor facilities.
The first floor is accessed via a staircase from the sitting room which leads to the light and spacious landing. The spacious principal bedroom has dual aspect views with deep window sills and exposed timbers, and there are two further light and equally proportioned bedrooms. There is a family bathroom with both bath and shower facilities and an additional shower room on the first floor.
The charming south west-facing gardens behind the property are laid mainly to lawn with a delightful area of sheltered, paved terracing, ideal for al fresco dining and relaxing. There are a variety of shrubs, well-stocked border flowerbeds and an impressive flowering cherry tree. The property fronts onto the pretty Wylye Road, while an entrance a little further along the road leads to a driveway at the rear. Here lies the detached double garage which has a loft space to its first floor and off street parking in front of it.
The property is set in the pretty village of Hanging Langford in the heart of the Wylye Valley. Nearby, Wylye has a post office, a village hall and a local pub. About 5 miles away, Codford provides a further range of facilities - a modern doctors surgery, garage and filling station, supermarket, school, playgroup, theatre, village hall and sports field. Salisbury is approximately 10 miles away, and provides an excellent range of shopping, leisure and cultural facilities. There are fast road links to the A303, which is less than 2 miles away and joins the M3 to London. Train services are provided at Salisbury and Warminster (to London Waterloo).
The local area provides many opportunities for walking, riding and cycling, including walks along the River Wylye and the beautiful Langford Lakes Nature Reserve. The area is also very popular because of the excellent selection of schools at all levels. There are popular primary schools in nearby local villages and Salisbury retains Grammar schools for both boys and girls. Public schools in the area include Warminster, Dauntseys, St Mary's Shaftsbury, Port Regis and in Salisbury the Cathedral School, Godolphin, Leehurst Swan and Chafyn Grove. Marlborough, St Mary's Calne, Bryanston, Sherborne and Bath are also accessible.
From Salisbury, take the A36 west towards Warminster, and after 8.5 miles, turn left onto Salisbury Road, following the sign for The Langfords. After just more than 0.25 of a mile, turn left onto Duck Street and after a further 0.5 of a mile, turn right onto Wylye Road. The property will be on your left-hand side after 0.5 a mile follow past the cottage and the white picket fencing, turning left and then left again. Follow to the end of this cul de sac and the parking for the property will be found on the left hand side, in front of the garage.Read all
