Pear Tree Cottage is situated in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty which is criss-crossed by a network of bridle paths and quiet country lanes. The village of Baydon has a general store/Post Office, a public house, church and a good primary school. It is also in the catchment for St Johns Marlborough, an outstanding secondary school. The market towns of Marlborough and Hungerford with their various boutique shops, restaurants and coffee shops are 7 and 8 miles away respectively. Swindon is approximately 9 miles distant and provides excellent rail links to London Paddington. Both junction 14 & 15 of the M4 are 9 and 6 miles away respectively.

Pear Tree Cottage is a Grade II Listed period cottage believed to date back to 18th century, constructed of rendered stone, brick and blockwork elevations under a well maintained thatched roof relieved by wooden framed windows. The property is arranged over 2 floors and has undergone a total renovation project by the present owner. This property is a hidden gem cleverly combining
contemporary living yet retaining many period features, including exposed wall and ceiling beams.
On the ground floor there is a well-fitted kitchen with vaulted ceiling, Geba panelled oak wall and base units with oak worktops, Butler sink, Halogen hob and oven, integrated fridge freezer, microwave and dishwasher, stone flooring, underfloor heating and stable door opening out to the garden.

A spacious elegant drawing room with an inglenook fireplace with attractive bread oven and French doors opening out to the garden leads through to a spacious dining room and steps up to a sitting/family room with a further inglenook fireplace.
Stairs rise to the first floor with a large master bedroom with a well-appointed en suite shower room and built in storage, 1 further double bedroom with built-in wardrobes and dressing table, a study/third bedroom and a family
bathroom. The accommodation is decorated with a neutral palette giving it a bright sophisticated feel and has cream carpets throughout.

The property is approached via electric double wooden gates via an entry phone system leading through to a gravelled parking area for 3-4 vehicles. There is a gravelled path which leads through to an ornamental fish pond with bridge leading to the cottage. A pretty timber arbor leads to a manicured lawn area with raised flower borders. An archway leads through to the kitchen garden, greenhouse, three sheds and two vegetables beds. A further brick path leads to the front of the house and a further gravelled sun terrace with steps up to a further area of lawn with a summerhouse and magnificent panoramic views across the Valley.

The garage has a thatched roof, and part is converted to a utility room, with a WC. To the side is a private driveway with a footpath to the side of the property. There is further parking in front of the garage for up to six cars.
