A three bedroom cottage overlooking the rear gardens and close to the Dovecote, on the western edge of the cathedral city of Salisbury. The property is located on a purpose-built retirement development for the over 55s. Management services are provided by Cognatum Estates, a not-for-profit organisation and one of the uk's leading companies in retirement housing.
Bemerton Farm is converted from the model farm built for the Dowager Countess of Pembroke in 1863. The buildings were designed to be beautiful as well as useful, making it unusual although pleasant to look at. There is an enclosed courtyard of stone cottages, a farmhouse and gatehouse, a lovely circular dovecote and even a wwii pill box. A nine-hole golf course runs partly around the estate and across the road is a private walled garden on the River Nadder, with open countryside beyond.
Bemerton is a quaint yet vibrant village with a lively social scene, including film nights and a local history group. It has a beautiful small church, St Andrews, a post office and village store. In contrast to village life, just to the east is the cathedral city of Salisbury with excellent shops, an acclaimed theatre, a cinema and many fine pubs and restaurants. To the west are Wilton and the ancestral seat of the Earls of Pembroke. The beautiful scenery of the New Forest National Park is also easily accessible.
Services include a visiting estate manager, making this property ideal for a ‘lock up leave. Buildings insurance, window cleaning, garden maintenance and the security alarms, to be found in all properties, are provided as part of an annual service charge.
125 year lease (from 2001), no ground rent and 55+ age covenant.
