Property description

Introduction
Dating from 1851, Potterne Park Cottage is an exceptional property lying in a truly beautiful location, in the hamlet of Potterne Wick. Approached along a single-track lane which is a no-through-road leading only to the neighbouring farm and one other property, it enjoys a very tranquil setting with minimal passing traffic. The property has been superbly refurbished and extended by the present owners and now offers the perfect combination of period charm and contemporary style.

The property


Originally created by combining two smaller existing properties, Potterne Park Cottage has since been sympathetically extended by the current owners to create a comfortable, spacious, and stylish home. The accommodation comprises:

On the Ground Floor -
Entering through the front door into the hallway, a door to the left opens into the comfortable triple aspect living room, with log-burning stove. French doors lead out on to the terrace, so creating a perfect place to retreat on cold winter evenings, or a warm summer afternoon. It is a room for relaxing or entertaining, all year round. The modern kitchen with feature slate flagstone floor has been finished to a very high standard with beautiful granite worktops, breakfast bar and a range of integrated appliances, including induction hob. The open plan layout integrates the kitchen with a magnificently realised double-height extension which incorporates the family room, a bright and airy space flooded with light from the skylights above. From the family room a door connects to the spacious utility room, off which is a large wet room with walk-in shower and w.c. The kitchen, family room and wet room all benefit from underfloor heating.

On the First Floor -
The first floor has been thoughtfully reconfigured to provide upstairs accommodation that enjoys a wonderful sense of space and light. The stairs lead from the hallway up to a spacious landing that currently serves as a useful mezzanine study area, and which gives access to the two double bedrooms, each of which has a generously proportioned en suite. Bedroom One is a delightful dual-aspect space with views to the front of the house over open fields, and to the rear, the garden. It benefits from an en suite with large walk-in shower. Bedroom Two also has an en suite with both bath and shower. Each bedroom incorporates fitted wardrobes providing ample storage space.


Outside


To the side of the property is a broad gravelled parking area with space for at least four vehicles. A picket gate then leads into an east-facing area of lawn enclosed by a post and rail fence and bordered by roses, which offers the perfect outdoor setting for breakfast or a morning coffee break. The glory of the house is, however, the one-acre garden to the rear of the property. Laid mainly to lawn but flanked by mature trees including exotics such as Catalpa (Indian Bean Tree) and Ginko Biloba, this lovely space with a stream gently trickling through leading down to the meadow beyond, it is a haven of tranquillity.


Location


The village of Potterne lies 2 miles south of Devizes, and benefits from a range of local amenities including convenience store, Post Office, public house and 13th century Church. Devizes and Marlborough (17 miles distant) provide a comprehensive range of services. There are several of excellent local primary and secondary schools in Devizes and West Lavington, and a number of notable independent schools are also in easy reach, including Dauntsey’s School at West Lavington, St Mary’s Calne, and Marlborough College.

Leisure pursuits are very well-catered for, with Marlborough and Devizes each offering a broad spectrum of independent shopping and dining venues, and several gyms and sports facilities including swimming. For those who enjoy more sedate pursuits there are three golf courses within easy driving distance. Devizes also now hosts a number of Arts, Food and Music festivals throughout the year and is fast becoming one of the area’s most desirable destinations for entertainment and recreation of all kinds. Surrounding the house itself is the most glorious countryside, teeming with wildlife and presenting ample opportunities for walking, cycling or riding – or floating, on the nearby Kennett and Avon canal.

Communications in the area are excellent with a regular bus service from Potterne to Devizes and train services to London Paddington from Chippenham, Pewsey and Westbury. The M3/4 also gives easy access to the motorway network and to Heathrow and Gatwick airports. The major centres of Bath, Swindon, Salisbury and the country towns of Trowbridge, Chippenham and Marlborough are all within a thirty mile radius.
