'Pear Tree Cottage' is a gem of a property! Extensively renovated by the current owners to a very high specification, this charming and individual home sits on a generous plot of just over 1/4 an acre. Set down a small country lane off the centre of this thriving village, it enjoys wonderful views across fields to the rear. The extended accommodation includes a stunning 20ft sun room/orangery with 'heritage' limestone flooring with a contemporary log burner, sliding doors and built -in B&W speakers with surround sound. A beautiful handmade kitchen has slate floor tiles, granite worktops and upstands, an oak topped bench seat as well as an integrated dish washer, washing machine and tumble dryer. The snug/breakfast room to the rear has underfloor heating. The cosy sitting room features limestone flooring and exposed ceiling beam (N.B- the log burning stove has no Heatas certificate so could be either removed by the owners or left for buyers to obtain one themselves) . Also on the ground floor is a refitted cloakroom and the welcoming hallway with oak skirting boards, doors and door frames all highlighting the quality finish. On the first floor there is a stylish refitted bathroom with polished floor tiles, a dual aspect main bedroom with oak flooring and far reaching views, and two further bedrooms with original elm floorboards. Outside, 5 bar gates open onto a driveway with parking for several vehicles. The private garden has a patio sun terrace alongside a lawn with a variety of pear, apple, cherry, plum and damson fruit trees. A large workshop provides useful storage or even scope for an ancillary dwelling (planning was previously granted for this but has since lapsed).


The property is located just off the centre of this picturesque village of Steeple Ashton, which on numerous occasions has been voted the 'Best kept village in Wiltshire.' The village consists predominately of attractive period houses and has a thriving community, there is a wonderful public house and post office, a Keep and a playing field. The major centres of Devizes, Trowbridge, Melksham and Chippenham are within easy reach and the cities of Bath and Salisbury are both within a thirty mile radius.
