Description

Situated along Abbey Road, at the fringes of Chilcompton heading towards Downside School and Abbey, Grange Cottage is an absolute delight; charming & full of character, bright, unique, benefitting from a large garden and a quiet rural position yet within easy walking distance of all the amenities that Chilcompton has on offer. Overall gardens and grounds of circa 0.33acres.

At the end of a long gravel driveway the door to the property leads into a combined utility space and entrance lobby with garden aspect window and doorway to cloakroom/wc. This leads to…

Kitchen, 7.31m x 3.03m (24′ x 9’11”); half-vaulted ceiling, two garden aspect windows, feature beams, larder, smart white wall and base cabinets with worktop, s.steel sink/drainer, built-in electric double oven and inset gas hob, space for dishwasher and large fridge, semi-open plan walk-through to…

Dining Room, 5.22m x 3.21m (17’2″ x 10’6″); a particularly elegant, light and stylish space with half-vaulted ceiling, feature beams, three garden aspect windows, french doors to patio, open plan access to sitting room and snug.

Sitting Room; with stairs to first floor this flexible space offers a pleasant relaxing area, pre-dinner reception or transitional space. There is a rear aspect window which faces onto the adjacent Grange garden and in addition the space capitalises on natural light from the dining room.

Living Room/Snug, 4.39m x 3.78m (14’5″ x 12’5″); benefitting from light from both a garden aspect and Grange garden aspect window as well as having open plan access from the dining room, the snug/living room offers yet more flexible space.

Bedroom One, 4.98m x 3.33m, (16’4″ x 10’11”); good size double bedroom with vaulted ceiling, feature beams and garden aspect window. There is an area of eaves storage currently fitted with a hanging rail suitable for ‘wardrobe’ style storage.

Bedroom Two, 4.79m x 3.74m, (15’9″ x 12’3″); good size double bedroom with ample space to accommodate a super king bed, dressing table, bedside tables and small wardrobe. There is a garden aspect window, feature beams and a period feature fireplace.

Bathroom; white bath suite, basin with vanity unit, wc, separate shower cubicle and tray, neutral part-tiled walls. Garden aspect window.

Externally; the gardens and grounds totalling 0.33acres, and the view therefrom, are of particular note. The gardens border a large paddock, owned by the neighbouring property, and are often grazed by sheep. Beyond the paddock the views continue to a wooded hillside known locally as The Batch and onward to grounds belonging to Downside School and Abbey.

The garden is currently divided into two portions; a large recreational lawn and a more naturalised section which might lend itself to more creative use subject to any required planning consents. In addition there is a pathway, sun terrace and a stone built privy now used as a secure store.

All mains services are connected, gas central heating, fibre broadband is available. Council tax band ‘B’.

In our view this represents a particularly scarce and very favourable combination of unique cottage accommodation, grounds, position and views.
