About the property

***WATCH THE VIDEO TOUR*** Believed to have been constructed around 400 years ago, and once under ownership of Lord Nelson, Peg Top Cottage presents prospective buyers with the opportunity to own a unique piece of local history. Established within a sizeable plot, the beautiful grounds offer peaceful views over surrounding Wiltshire countryside. The property itself is a three-bedroom detached cottage with a cosy and homely accommodation, with the range of exposed timber beams exuding a touch of elegant countryside class within. These qualities are set alongside the practicalities of well-proportioned bedrooms and integrated kitchen appliances, all traits that sought-after by the contemporary homebuyer. The ground floor comprises a snug sitting room offering a statement inglenook fireplace with redbrick surround and a central wood burner. This space flows via an open doorway to the dining room with additional characterful wooden beams above, and access into the kitchen and conservatory. The country-style kitchen offers a range of made-to-measure cabinets, with the conservatory presenting a peaceful reception room space with pleasant views across the rear garden and beyond. The ground floor is also home to the family bathroom, with both bath and shower facilities, as well as an auxiliary utility room with functional access to the side of the plot. The first floor is made up of three good-sized bedrooms which boast an array of built-in storage solutions, and an en-suite to the main with its fully tiled walk-in shower cubicle. Both the main bedroom and the en-suite enjoy extended rural views to the west. Externally, at the property's approach there are two driveway areas, one of which has ample room for multiple vehicles as well as side access to through to the rear, and the other being set before the single garage space and the main access into the property at the right-hand side elevation. Between them is a shaded courtyard area, an ideal spot for potted plants and other garden ornaments, or a table and chairs. To the rear, doors from the kitchen and conservatory introduce the stunning and well-maintained garden. Although mostly laid-to-lawn, there are a varying range of spaces which include, but are not limited to, an idyllic raised decking with flora-entwined timber pergola above, a selection of flower beds that are home to an array of greenery, shrubs, and flowering plants, a cordoned wooded area to the side of the plot, and a space with a greenhouse and vegetable patches for those with green fingers. All the garden quadrants offer tranquil rural views towards the surrounding fields and extended countryside.
