3 Bedroom House For Sale
‘A VERY SPECIAL PLACE’
Charming detached cottage overflowing with character.
River Avon frontage
Beautiful garden of over an acre.
Convenient for Marlborough, Salisbury and Pewsey.
Newton Cottage has attractive colour washed elevations beneath a thatched roof and it has charming accommodation which has extensive original features and an outstanding location with frontage to the Upper Avon on which there are riparian (fishing) rights. As a consequence it has similarities to a fishing lodge and it is a fisherman’s paradise. It has an idyllic setting with views across the river and beyond and the garden provides a particularly attractive setting as it is full of specimen trees, shrubs and plants, in addition to having numerous seating areas, large expanses of lawn and interesting features all set in approximate 1 acre. The current owners have been in residence for in excess of thirty years during which time they have enhanced the accommodation and landscaped the garden.
A door leads into a well proportioned kitchen/breakfast room which has extensive fitted units in addition to a recessed dresser and cupboards and a door which gives access to a staircase to the first floor. A door also leads into the inner hall where there are steps down to the lower ground floor where there is a cloakroom, study and utility which houses the oil fired boiler and has two doors that lead out to the garden. The inner hall also leads to a delightful sitting room which has exposed timbers and an attractive inglenook fireplace with a cast iron fire basket and back and canopy above. A door leads into a particularly attractive sun room which has a vaulted ceiling, underfloor heating, a door to the rear and bi-folding doors lead onto an area of raised decking and the combination of the sun room and the decking provides an exceptional entertaining space. On the first floor there are three bedrooms, two of which have fitted wardrobes and a bathroom.

The A303 provides access to the west country and to London, Heathrow Airport and the Thames Valley. There are many well regarded schools within the City of Salisbury and also in the surrounding area, including Marlborough College, St John’s Academy, Dauntseys and St Alfred’s.
Salisbury has an excellent range of educational, recreational, leisure and shopping facilities including a Waitrose Home & Food Store , a twice weekly market and there are diverse leisure opportunities in Salisbury’s rural environs including fishing on the River Avon and other nearby chalk streams. Readily accessible are large unspoiled areas of countryside which are ideal for walking and riding.

There is a drive which drops down from the A345 and terminates by the cottage where there is ample parking and a turning area. The garden with the river frontage is breathtaking and provides an unrivalled setting for Newton Cottage. There are large expanses of lawn, specimen trees and shrubs, flowerbeds and borders with roses, numerous seating areas, a woodland walk and around 150 yards of frontage
