Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 4
Located on The Green in this pretty Wiltshire village in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty is this quintessential Grade II listed thatched cottage. Over the years the property has been sympathetically extended and modernised to create a comfortable family home set in beautifully manicured gardens and grounds. The accommodation flows seamlessly from room to room and is decorated with neutral heritage tones which highlight the character features whilst making the most of the light. On the ground floor there is cosy snug with wood burner, spacious main sitting room with dining area at one end featuring many exposed beams, conservatory which carefully links the cottage to the garage, large under stairs storage cupboard, cloakroom and kitchen/breakfast room.

The farmhouse style kitchen is fitted with a range of units which incorporate an electric oven, induction hob, fridge and freezer, cream coloured AGA, bespoke wooden cupboards with timber worktops and ample space for a kitchen table as well as a stable door to the rear garden.

The first floor is accessed via two separate staircases, one from the entrance hall and the other via the main sitting room. With good ceiling heights, the landing is light and airy and leads to all the bedrooms. The master bedroom is dual aspect and has an en suite bathroom with freestanding claw foot bath, wc and hand wash basin. The guest bedroom benefits from a hand wash basin and built in wardrobes. There are two further bedrooms and a large family bathroom with a stylish antique suite, separate bath and shower. All in all the property is very well appointed and offers much in the way of charm and character throughout.


East Grafton is a small picturesque village, set around a pretty green in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with an active community. The village amenities include a church, thriving nursery, preschool and toddler group, a modern village hall and an abundance of footpaths and bridleways over the surrounding farmland and Kennet and Avon Canal. It sits within the catchment of St Johns Academy and Bedwyn Primary School. It is situated near to the market towns of Marlborough and Hungerford (both about 8 miles). The larger commercial centres of Newbury, Swindon, Reading and Andover are all commutable. Schooling in the area is catered for well at all levels through Marlborough College, St Johns Marlborough, Dauntsey's, St Francis, St Marys, Calne, Pinewood and Farleigh. Local transport links are equally good with rail services to London Paddington from Hungerford taking approximately 55 minutes and Great Bedwyn (about 3 miles) in an 1 hour and 15 minutes. The motorway network can be accessed through Junction 14 of the M4 motorway which is about 12 miles away.


The property is approached via a shared driveway which is owned by Tilia Cottage, and leads up to a large gravelled parking area and a double garage with doors to both the front and rear providing through access. The front garden is enclosed by Copper Beech hedgerows with flagstone path to the front door flanked by gravel and pretty mature foliage frames the front.

The rear garden is enclosed by a combination of fencing and mature hedgerows with a good level of privacy; much thought has gone into the design and landscaping. Colourful shaped borders filled with a plethora of shrubs and perennials, a small orchard, full stocked raised vegetable garden and neat lawns provide much variety to this wonderful English cottage garden which extends to about 0.46 acres. An extensive paved terrace off both the conservatory and kitchen provide an ideal spot to enjoy the views over the garden.
