Located within the wonderfully quiet Wiltshire hamlet of Ablington, Cherry Tree Cottage is a pretty Grade II Listed semi-rural village dwelling which has been extended, restored and maintained to a high standard and has retained many characterful features. The original cottage is believed to date from the mid 16th century with a more recent (1996) two-storey addition.

The accommodation is not at all small, in fact given the style of the property, all of the rooms are spacious with surprisingly high ceilings. On the ground floor there is a generous double aspect dining room with a flagstone floor, spacious hallways, a comfortable double aspect sitting room with a large inglenook fireplace, charming ‘cottage’ kitchen with a small inglenook and bread oven, a large well fitted utility room and a ground floor cloakroom.

The first floor has a galleried-style landing off which is a remodelled family bathroom, a fine master suite with bespoke fitted wardrobes and ensuite shower room, an excellent second/guest bedroom and a large single bedroom; all the first floor rooms, including the landing, have vaulted ceilings with exposed heavy beams and timbers.

Cherry Tree Cottage is surrounded on three sides by a lovely private cottage garden with areas of lawn, flower beds, shrubs and seating areas. There is a gravelled drive with parking for approximately six vehicles in addition to which is a detached garage/workshop which was also constructed in 1996.

The ancient rural settlement of Ablington, recorded in the Domesday Book, is located approximately 3.5 miles north of Amesbury, close to the village of Figheldean on the River Avon. The hamlet has a hugely popular outdoor childrens nursery and has access to numerous country walks. The historic market town of Amesbury offers a comprehensive range of shopping and leisure facilities together with schooling. The medieval cathedral city of Salisbury, approximately 12 miles to the south, offers a good range of social, cultural and educational amenities including the Salisbury Playhouse, Arts Centre and cinema, historic Charter market, a variety of state and private, primary and secondary schools and mainline railway station serving London (Waterloo) and the West Country. Mainline railway stations are also located nearby in Pewsey and Grateley. The A303 with its links to the M3 (London and the West Country) is approximately 3 miles away.

Tenure and services: Tenure: Freehold. Local authority: Wiltshire Council. Council tax band E - £2,311.95 for year 20120/2021. Oil central heating, mains electricity, water and drainage connected.

Directions: From the cathedral city of Salisbury proceed in a northerly direction along the A345 into and through the country town of Amesbury. Continue to the Countess roundabout and continue straight across following the A345 towards Durrington. At the next roundabout continue across, still following the A345 (Netheravon Road). Follow the road for a short distance turning right signposted Figheldean and the High Street. Continue for a short distance turning right just before the school signposted Ablington. Follow the road passing Avon Banks, through the sharp left hand bend into Ablington where Cherry Tree Cottage will be found on the left hand side.
