A charming detached stone and thatched cottage, listed Grade II, of immense character which has subsequently been extended to the rear to provide additional and flexible accommodation. The property is now in need of modernisation. Some of the attributes of the cottage include an oak stripped floor to the hall and dining room, exposed stonework and beamed and timbered ceilings and deep windowsills. Bounded from the lane by an established hedge and five-bar gate, the drive leads past the cottage to a garage at the rear. The garden is a delight, the majority of which lies to the front and faces south- west, with a shaped lawn, mature shrubs, herbaceous borders and various established trees. There is a timber workshop with adjoining store and a small garden shed. The garage offers generous accommodation for a single car with plenty of additional storage space. Spring Cottage occupies a pretty rural setting on the fringe of Silton, a small hamlet with a parish church. The surrounding countryside is most attractive. The neighbouring village of Bourton has a petrol station, village store and Doctor's Surgery. The nearby towns of Gillingham, Wincanton and Shaftesbury have facilities for most everyday needs, Gillingham has a mainline railway station to London Waterloo and the pretty Somerset town of Castle Cary has a mainline railway station to London Paddington. The abbey town of Sherborne and the cathedral city of Salisbury are within easy reach and to the north of Silton runs the A303, which links with the M3, and provides east to west road travel.
