Property details

Melrose Cottage is set back behind large double wooden gates, providing a real feeling of privacy, with the main aspect of the house overlooking a very large south facing garden and beautiful water meadows.  The spacious, airy and light main living room is the most modern part of the property dating from the mid 90s, and, like the rest of the cottage, was completely refurbished 4 years ago and then also recently redecorated.  It has a wood floor, a wall of windows to take advantage of the views, French doors out to the patio and garden, and a cosy fireplace with multi fuel stove. 

The bespoke country kitchen has a breakfast table area, range cooker, extensive views and a door out to a charming kitchen garden.  The stunning dining room was once the village forge and dates from around 1650; it boasts an unusually good head height in a cottage of this age, and the size, working open fire place and multiple period features make it a great entertaining space.   

The current owners have lime-plastered through much of the property, put in a new boiler and installed beautiful limestone flooring with underfloor heating in the hall, kitchen and new downstairs cloakroom.  A new bespoke French oak staircase leads upstairs to 3 double bedrooms, a neat ensuite and a very smart shower room with a large luxury walk-in shower.  The high quality finish and warm neutral décor mean this attractive property is ready to move in, with the advantage of having previously held planning permission for a large extension which the council have advised could easily be reapplied for should the new owners want to add further value in future.  Plans are available to see at viewing.

The pretty one bedroom annexe has been redecorated and a handsome new shower room installed.  It has a large kitchen, comfortable lounge and large bedroom with lovely views. It would be ideal for an older teenager / elderly relative or to generate extra income as e.g. an Air BnB let. The garden office, currently used as a home gym, also has a veranda and useful storage area.

Quidhampton is a highly sought after village on the edge of Salisbury, and only a short cycle or drive to the main train station which has the start of the direct line to London.  The village has a real community feel, with a quiet pub serving great food, a variety of village events through the year and a monthly newsletter.  Melrose Cottage is in the heart of the village, and within the top school catchment areas, but because of its unique situation it also offers peace, privacy and a sense of being firmly in the countryside. 

This is an unusual modernised period cottage that offers very pretty and practical living space and character combined with exceptional outside space and beautiful views. It is expected that this property will generate significant interest, and an open day has been scheduled, so please contact sellmyhome for appointments.
