Rustic Cottage is an exceptional period cottage dating from around 1820. The property has been in the ownership of the existing family since 1976 and in 2006 underwent an extensive programme of renovation by local building contractors, Mouldings. Works undertaken include an excellent two storey extension, full renovation to the original cottage, the construction of a detached garage and a substantial amount of external landscaping. There is a wealth of original features retained within the property including exposed beams and timbers and an open fireplace in the sitting room, housing a mult-fuel burning stove. From both the kitchen/dining room and the sitting room, French doors give access to a sunny, south facing seating area with flower beds, lawn and a well stocked pond. All windows and external doors are bespoke and are constructed from hardwood; internal doors are reclaimed and are made of Oregan pine. The cottage is centrally heated via a gas fired boiler to radiators. The property is set back off the village road and approached by a gated, private, gravelled drive with parking and access to the garage. The gardens are predominantly to the front with steps rising to the side to an upper level of formal garden and terrace with barbeque area.
Rustic Cottage is located on the eastern side of the city of Salisbury in the popular suburb of Laverstock, close to downland walks and good local facilities including a convenience store and public house. The property is on a regular bus route into the city centre, approximately one and a half miles away. Grammar, private and state schools are easily accessible. The cathedral city has an excellent range of
entertainment, cultural and leisure facilities, a thriving, twice weekly market and benefits from a mainline railway station with links to London Waterloo (90 minutes). Laverstock is well placed for easy access to the A30/A303/M3 to London and the West Country and the A36 to Southampton.
