A charming detached thatched property in a popular Wylye Valley village location with large garden and no forward chain.
14-15 Stockton is a Grade II listed thatched cottage believed to date from the 17th Century. There is an abundance of charm and character throughout, firstly, it has an extremely attractive facade with square-panelled timber-framing with brick or rendered panels underneath a thatched roof (re-thatched in 2012). Internally it retains many of its period features including exposed beams, inglenook fireplaces to both reception rooms both with Morso log burners, as well as thumb latch doors and attractive windows (secondary internal glazing). The property offers good accommodation with two large reception rooms, a kitchen with Poggenpohl units and Amtico flooring and separate breakfast area. Two double bedrooms, a further single bedroom and family bathroom complete the accommodation. Externally there is a large and well established south facing rear garden which is mostly laid to lawn with established beds and ornamental pond. There is shed and summer house as well as a extremely useful outbuilding currently used as an office, but would make a excellent hobby room or workshop. To the front of the property there is on-street parking, however, there is a lane which runs adjacent to the propertys garden and subject to the necessary permissions and consents a vehicular access could be created. Historically there had been planning permission granted to extend and improve the accommodation. The property benefits from no onward chain and a viewing is highly recommended.
The property occupies a delightful location in the centre of the village in a popular Wylye Valley village. Stockton has a public house, The Carriers, and an 800 year old church of St John The Baptist. The un spoilt surrounding countryside caters for all manner of country pursuits. In nearby Codford there are two churches, school, doctors surgery, public house and a Budgens convenience store and post office.

The large south facing rear garden is mostly laid to lawn with established beds and ornamental pond and offers a good level of privacy; mature hedges run along the borders. At the end of the garden and adjacent to the red brick outbuilding is a terrace. The office has power and there is an attractive summer house. To the front of the property there is on street parking, however, there is a lane which runs adjacent to the propertys garden subject to the necessary permissions and consents a vehicular access could be created.
