Salisbury has a delightful detached character cottage in the highly popular village of Homington in the Chalke Valley.
In the heart of the village, Vine Cottage is in immaculate order and packed with character features: attractive exposed beams in many rooms, dining room and living room at the front of the house, both featuring striking exposed brick inglenook fireplaces – one with an original bread oven. The kitchen/breakfast room has an Aga in a brick surround, in the heart of the house, and a separate spacious utility room.
Patrick Brady, of Savills Salisbury, who is marketing the property, said: “Vine Cottage is a lovely village home which simply brims with personality, One of its most delightful elements is the private central courtyard, surrounded by well-planted borders, which forms a real sun trap and makes a perfect alfresco dining space.”
Vine Cottage, as its name implies, is as pretty on the outside as on the inside, with mature vines and climbers decorating the front elevation. It’s a taste of things to come, as the attractive gardens give a high level of privacy and a variety of landscaped seating locations to relax and admire the mature borders, trees, shrubs, water feature and pond.
Towards the rear of the property is a snug with views over the gardens, and a ground floor bedroom with French doors leading onto a large covered veranda overlooking the garden. As the bedroom and snug benefit from an adjacent shower room, there is plenty of versatility for ground floor living options or additional guest accommodation.
On the first floor are three further bedrooms, one of which is a double, with the master bedroom leading into a dressing room and situated adjacent to the well-appointed bathroom with roll top bath and limestone floor with underfloor heating.
Patrick added: “Homington is a village in high demand with buyers, being easily accessible to Salisbury and on the doorstep to many bridle paths and walking routes across the beautiful Chalke Valley. A lovely home of this quality, set within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, is a real find.”
Vine Cottage is being marketed by Savills Salisbury at a guide of £679,950. For more information, contact Patrick Brady on 01722 426 820.
