Cuckoo Corner, Urchfont

Guide price

Bedrooms: 3

'Shard' is a surprisingly spacious detached family home located just off the village green within one of the most sought after quintessential Wiltshire villages. Offered with no onward chain, the property is now in need of some updating and would suit young families with an excellent primary school just around the corner, as well as anyone looking to downsize.

Houses of this size and nature rarely come to the market in the village, indeed this is the first time the house is on the market since 1974! 'Shard' is believed to be an old Wiltshire word for a gap in a hedge, large enough for a child to crawl through. Internally a lobby leads into a hallway with under stairs cupboard. A light sitting room features an attractive open fireplace with a 'Minster' style stone surround. The kitchen and dining room are extended and are a decent size. The kitchen is well equipped and all the white goods will be left. There is a separate utility leading off the kitchen that opens onto to a useful downstairs shower room. The dining room is open plan into a conservatory with light and power and doors out to the rear garden. On the first floor there are three bedrooms (all with wardrobes), complemented by a family bathroom with fully tiled walls and bath with an electric shower over.

Outside, there is a block paved driveway with parking for two cars and an attached single garage with an electric door, light and power. There are established gardens to the front and rear with a side gate. The rear garden features a variety of roses, colourful planted borders, a lawn and two patio seating areas.


The very picturesque village of Urchfont forms part of the famous Pewsey Vale with its surrounding rolling downland and countryside. The village is renowned for its central duck pond and village Green, fine period properties and has an excellent junior school, Church, a popular public house, community shop/ post office, a very active village hall, over 30 different societies and other local amenities. Devizes is about six miles away and Pewsey, where there is a mainline railway station (Paddington about one hour), a similar distance away. The other major centres of Swindon, Chippenham, Marlborough, Bath and Salisbury are all within a thirty mile radius.
