An attractive Grade II Listed cottage with a large garden and parking in this popular village.

Orchard Cottage is an appealing period house, conveniently located close to the village centre, the square and the village green which form the focal point of this sought after village. The property is within easy reach of the sop, post office and two public houses. There is an attractive village community and other facilities include a good primary school, library and a church.

The surrounding countryside is made of undulating chalk downs and is excellent for walking and riding, with Areas of Outside Natural Beauty close by. Communications are excellent, with the M4 motorway (Junctions 14 & 15) approximately 8 miles away, Swindon 10 miles with mainline railway station (Paddington about 1 hour) and further facilities can be found at the historic market towns of Marlborough 8 miles, Hungerford 7 miles, Swindon, Salisbury and Bath and horse racing at Newbury.

Orchard Cottage is a Grade II listed period property, now a family house with a later addition to the rear. Constructed mainly in the 17/18th century, the house has colour washed brick and screen stone walls, with a tiled roof, and timber casement windows, whilst the extension is brick built and provides a study and access to the first floor. The cottage has a combined kitchen/breakfast area, with terracotta tiles, leading to a generous sitting room with a wood burner, then onto an additional reception room also with a wood burner, currently used as a dining room. The original staircase from this room leads to an independent double bedroom, served by a downstairs shower room. An additional staircase leads to the first floor, with two double bedrooms and a single, along with the main family bathroom. There is a separate brick built utility/boot room, with a cloakroom and Belfast sink. The house has much charm and character, with period features such as exposed brickwork, original beams, shutters and large inglenook fireplaces.

The house is approached via a 5 bar gate to gravelled driveway which provides parking for 2-3 cars, this in turn leads to the detached car port sufficient for 2 vehicles. The gardens are extensive, and terraced, with wide stone steps leading to the upper levels. They are mainly lawned, with a good selection of shrubs and trees. In all the property extends to just under 1/4 of an acre.

The next steps...

Before making an offer on a property you will want to consider your financial situation, your income and outgoings.

Will you finance the purchase of your next property from the sale of an existing property which can put you in a chain, arrange a mortgage through your bank or buy the property outright.
To help you finance your next property purchase, we have a long established relationship with an independent mortgage broker who can discuss your situation with you.

Remember that having a 'mortgage decision in principle' can make you a more attractive buyer when you make an offer on a property. Contact our mortgage advisers for free, no obligation and impartial advice.
Some advantages of a broker are:

  • They do all the legwork for you, working on your behalf with the lender
  • They compare wholesale mortgage rates from a large number of banks and lenders all at once
  • Wholesale interest rates can be lower than retail (bank branch) interest rates
  • You get more loan options because they work with numerous banks and lenders
  • Brokers can finance tricky deals because of their knowledge and various lending partners
  • Are typically easier to get in contact with, less bureaucratic.

However with your bank maybe able to:

  • Build off existing relationship (discounts if you have a checking/saving account)
  • You may already know the banker who will handle your mortgage
  • Perhaps more trustworthy, more accountable than a smaller shop
  • Lower interest rates in some cases
  • Ability to add mortgage to existing banking profile and make automatic payments from linked account.

When it comes to making an offer on a property a bit of negotiation is to be expected, however don't offer so little that you end up in a lengthy negotiation process, as you might lose the property altogether if someone else makes a higher bid.

If other offers have been made on a property we aren't legally able to tell you what they are, but we may indicate if they were close to the asking price.
