'Yarn Cottage' Silver Street, Dilton Marsh.
The property is located in a quiet tucked away village location within easy access of nearby towns. 'Yarn Cottage' has been lovingly restored to its former glory by the current owner whilst providing all those essentials for comfortable, modern living.
The property is a large two double bed immaculately clean, light, spacious and beautifully presented character cottage with wooden beams and fireplace, 'Yarn Cottage' is a real gem and a rare find. There would be very little you'd have to do to this cottage but just move in, everything has been renovated and finished to a high standard. Traditional methods, like 'lime mortar and inside lime plaster' has been used on both outside walls. The whole cottage has been freshly painted throughout, with new carpets, new light fittings and new blinds which are all included with the cottage. The only thing left to do is for someone to put their own creative stamp on it.
There is an unusually spacious and true 'south facing' garden which is low maintenance, mainly laid to lawn, with a patio area and large wooden cabin/office/studio with electric sockets, ceiling light and window. There is also another wooden shelter, open fronted, to use if it gets too hot or to dive into if there is a light shower when entertaining. This shelter could also be used for bikes, tools or a summer house with outdoor seating.
This property would suit a lot of people, those upgrading, downgrading or a wonderful rental home for an investor,
offering a return on investment of approx. of 4%.
Dilton Marsh is a very friendly, lively village with a tremendous amount to offer, it incorporates many different social groups, including toddlers play centre, history group, table tennis group, gardening club, Women's Institute, bowls club, pilates, yoga, amateur dramatics group, social club etc. Silver St. is a short cul de sac with a very interesting history as the cottages were originally Weavers cottages. The quiet location is perfectly situated, for all the local amenities. A couple of minutes stroll will take you to the central hub of the village where there is a convenience store, excellent café and post office along with very good parking facilities. A further couple of minutes walk takes you to the bus stop, train station, children's play area, memorial social hall, church, hair dressers, fish and chip shop, garage repair centre. This centre of the village is surrounded by excellent pathways, right of ways and pastures for dog walking, there are also 2 walking groups, which operate on 2 separate days of the week. There is also a farm college for students in the centre of the village, which incorporates an animal centre for all to enjoy which includes horses, cattle, chickens, lama's, goats etc.
Stepping through the front door you will find a good evenly sized welcoming lounge which would be large enough to take two large sofa's or equivalent furnishings, like the popular modular sofa furniture. The lounge has high quality wood laminate flooring and a light golden bath stone fireplace which gives a lovely central focal point to the room, currently decorated with nicely sawn logs. But this fire place could be used as a wood burning stove etc., if required. Stairs lead, to the first floor. Under the stairs there is a large 'walk-in' storage cupboard, that has attractive original wooden panelling, painted white to reflect the natural light. The lounge has a clever open plan design leading you directly into the wonderful kitchen/diner, one of the best features of the cottage.
A real delight with this property is the generously sized kitchen/diner/family room which has plenty of space to entertain guests and extended family. This area would comfortably take a table of up to eight people, or an average sized table with a sofa, which would make this room an enjoyable second reception and family room. The soft white 'Howdens' fitted kitchen is of good quality and provides lots of cupboard space, a selection of wall and floor units with wood effect work surfaces that match the colour of the warm beige marble effect tiled floor. Set into the work surface is a stainless steel one and a half bowl sink drainer unit with mixer tap over, whilst within the units themselves you have space for a washing machine, large fridge-freezer and an electric/gas cooker. Two Southerly facing windows allow streams of natural light.
Upstairs you have a landing with the original latched doors to both bedrooms as well as a door to the bathroom. The 'walk in' airing cupboard is home to the gas combi boiler, there is also a ceiling hatch providing access to a large loft space which could easily convert to a good sized bedroom (subject to necessary permissions).
The main bedroom is large and could easily take a king sized bed with side tables and further additional bedroom furniture. There is already a 'built in' cupboard/wardrobe provides useful storage space.
The second bedroom is charming with its wooden golden lentil beam and is also a very capable double, with space for bedside tables etc. A south facing window also provides very pleasant views.
The bathroom has a white suite comprising a pedestal character wash hand basin, WC and a bath with good shower over. Matching the bathroom suite is a white heated towel rail and white tiled splash back.
Outside Cabin/office/studio space
Whether you are seeking office space, workshop, playroom, somewhere to work from home or extra storage space, the Cabin could adapt to suit a number of purposes. The cabin is of timber construction with a window overlooking the garden. It has a separate consumer unit which services an abundance of sockets and a ceiling light. It also has a carpeted floor.
Out of the back door, the large garden is mainly laid to lawn which makes it low maintenance, it is just slightly off set to the left. Being a true South facing garden this is a wonderful large space for socializing and enjoying the outdoor life. The garden area includes the cabin, a paved patio and a currently earthed area that is surrounded by wooden sleepers that could be a vegetable or flower bed or used as a sand pit for children. There is another large wooden garden structure/shelter that could be used for extra storage, bikes, hen house or a further social area to go to if the weather is hot or you need to run for cover from a rain shower when entertaining.
All blinds and lampshades will be included into the sale of Yarn Cottage.
