A large, Grade II Listed, part thatched cottage, with spacious accommodation (2905 sq ft) and good sized gardens, located in a popular village, with fine views across the Avon valley.

Entrance porch, hall, sitting room, dining room, kitchen/breakfast room, utility room, study, ground floor cloakroom, workshop, store room, five double bedrooms (one with en suite bathroom) and two further bathrooms. Driveway, attached tandem double garage and front and rear gardens.

This is a very spacious, attractive, five bedroom detached house. It is listed Grade II and believed to date back to the 17th Century, with 20th Century additions mostly to the rear. The original part of the property is built of timber frame with brick and flint infill beneath a thatched roof, with the later extensions being of red brick elevations beneath a clay tiled roof. Most rooms are double glazed. The large, South West facing gardens are a particular feature and are L shaped, with space for a fruit and vegetable patch if required. The property also benefits from an integral tandem garage. From the rear of the house, there are lovely views across water meadows towards the River Avon.

The house sits in a conservation area at the centre of the village, within walking distance of the local amenities pre-school, social club, church and village hall. There is a wide range of services in Durrington (approximately 5 minutes drive) or Amesbury, which lies 3 miles to the south. The cathedral city of Salisbury lies 12 miles south and has an excellent range of shopping, leisure and cultural facilities. Trains to London (journey time approx. 80 minutes) run from Grateley (10 miles) and Pewsey (10 miles). There are regular bus services to the village.

Figheldean is well situated for access to the stunning countryside of Salisbury Plain and the Avon valley. While lacking through traffic, the village is very conveniently located just off the A345 north-south route which in turn gives easy access to the A303 leading to London and the West Country.
