Potterne Wick, Potterne

Guide price

Bedrooms: 3
A captivating country cottage with superb panoramic views up to Salisbury Plain. With a flexible layout that includes 3 double bedrooms complemented by two wonderful reception rooms, off road parking and carport. Offered with no onward chain.

'Wick Cottage' is believed to date back to Victorian times but was sympathetically extended by the current owners in 2003, with a single storey tiled roof designed to accommodate a principal ground floor bedroom with en suite facilities. The original red brick cottage was completely rethatched in 2012. Internally, an entrance hall with slate floor tiles has wooden panelled latched doors off to a cloakroom and the aforementioned double bedroom with wood effect flooring and access to a part boarded loft with pull down ladder and light. The en suite has a shower and basin. The kitchen/breakfast room has a range of cottage style fitted units and comes with a washing machine, fridge, dishwasher, AEG double oven and 4 ring (LPG) hob. The kitchen (like numerous rooms in the house) enjoys superb views. A 22ft dining room with ceiling beams has stairs to the first floor, and an Inglenook fireplace with a log burning stove, exposed brick surround and oak mantle. A stable door leads into the bay fronted triple aspect sitting room with a further brick chimney breast with an LPG log effect fire. On the first floor there is a smart modern bathroom with a roll top bath. Bedroom Two is a large triple aspect double bedroom with views all round. Custom built wardrobes complete the room. Bedroom Three is another double and is light and airy with a high ceiling.

Outside, there is parking for 2 cars plus a single carport with light and power. A 5 bar gate opens through to an extended patio sun terrace with outside tap and Belfast sink (ideal for dog washing). There is a pergola, a potting shed, a fabulous old Magnolia tree and colourful borders. To the rear are two sheds (1 with light and power) and a stylish revolving Pod with fitted seats.


This wonderfully appointed detached home is set in an enviable and completely rural position with far reaching views over the surrounding farmlands. Potterne Wick is a hamlet on the edge of the village of Potterne, a popular Wiltshire village with various local amenities to include a convenience store, Post Office, public house and a Church. The nearby market towns of Devizes and Marlborough provide a comprehensive range of amenities including shopping and schooling. The excellent private school Dauntsey's School is located closeby in West Lavington. Communications in the area are excellent with 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.
