Guide price

Bedrooms: 2

'The Rest' is a thoroughly charming detached period home set down a small lane within the highly rated village of Market Lavington. Dating back from the mid to late 1600s, this Grade II Listed property is packed with character features and was rethatched in 2014. The recently extended accommodation (2021) now provides a useful dual aspect study, walk-in pantry, a quality refitted bathroom with Carrera marble effect porcelain tiles, and a roof terrace above it. There is a country cottage style fitted kitchen with bespoke oak cupboards and worktops, solid oak flooring, a 4 ring induction hob and an electric double oven/grill. The cosy dual aspect sitting room features an impressive Inglenook fireplace (chimney is currently capped), a window seat and exposed ceiling beams. A hinged dresser reveals a secret door behind it. On the first floor there are two good double bedrooms both with plenty of character.

Outside this cottage benefits from a detached double garage with light, a work bench, power and solar panels on the roof (owned and which provide a helpful income). There are two parking spaces on the driveway in front of the garage. The fabulous gardens are a real delight with a rear patio set under a pergola with a flourishing vine. A level lawn to the front bordered by well tended and plentiful flower beds with steps ascending over several tiers, past a pond, and up to the top tier that takes in the far reaching views over the village. There is also a greenhouse and a bridge across to the roof terrace. A wonderful insulated cabin at the top of the garden has light, power and a night storage heater. This could be an ideal home office or artist's studio or even a treatment/therapy room.


The property is located in a fabulous position- being tucked away down a small lane off the centre of the village, in an elevated rural position with commanding views right across towards Salisbury Plain and yet conveniently placed within a short stroll of the exceptional facilities the village has to offer. This popular Wiltshire village benefits from extensive amenities including a primary and secondary school (direct access from the rear gate onto a footpath that leads across fields to the primary school), a doctors surgery, a public house, an active village hall and a church. There is a pharmacy, grocery store, Post Office, butchers, 2 excellent takeaways and hairdressers in the village. Market Lavington lies some five miles south of the bustling market town of Devizes and the larger centres of Bath, Salisbury, Swindon, Chippenham and Marlborough are all within commuting distance. Mainline railway stations with routes up to London can be found at nearby Pewsey and Westbury.
