Built approximately 35 years ago, Merrow Cottage is an attractive detached cottage constructed of stone with brick courses under a tiled roof and is set back from the lane, in an enviable position in this attractive village surrounded by undulating countryside. The house, although in need of modernising, has well proportioned rooms and, subject to the usual planning consents, could be extended. Options could include incorporating the garage into the existing accommodation and/or extending at both ground and first floor level. Attributes worthy of mention include double glazing, an open fireplace in the sitting room and a large kitchen/dining room. The property is approached from the lane up a short drive through timber gates onto a gravelled car parking and turning area flanked by yew trees, adjoining which is the integral garage. The majority of the garden lies to the rear and is of excellent size. Accessed from the kitchen, there is an attractive terrace running into the garden which is to lawn with well stocked flower and shrub beds with a wide variety of ornamental flowers and shrubs, including hibiscus, roses, and box. The gardens at the rear are bounded by tall hedging on one side and closeboard fence on the other. The Deverill Valley encompasses six villages on the Wiltshire Downs where the western edge of Salisbury Plain dips into Somerset. Monkton Deverill is an attractive village with a mixture of period stone houses and cottages, and lies approximately three miles to the north of the A303. Mere, a thriving small town, is within four miles and has a good range of everyday facilities including shops, churches, hotels, doctor's surgery, primary school and a well known wine merchants. Warminster to the north also offers a good range of facilities including shops, supermarkets, library, sports centre and private schooling. Gillingham to the south has three supermarkets (including a Waitrose), while Shaftesbury is readily accessible. More sophisticated facilities can be found in the Cathedral cities of Salisbury and Bath.
