THE PROPERTY

Of period origins, Iron Cottage is a substantial stone built cottage in an elevated position on the edge of the village. The cottage is sensibly configured, with just under 2,000 sq ft of accommodation and has a nicely proportioned sitting room with a large inglenook fireplace, a kitchen with blue lias stone flooring and an attractive dining room with an open fireplace. The hall has wood flooring and there is a useful study at the rear with access through the rear hall to the garden. Other attributes worthy of mention are a pressurized plumbing system, good ceiling heights (particularly at first floor level) and a quiet position. Additional garden may be available by separate negotiation. Iron Cottage is approached off the lane onto a tarmac drive, with car parking at either end of the cottage; to the north west there are gates leading to a paved area at the rear. The front facade is bordered by flower and shrub borders and clad with climbing roses. The garden lies to the rear with access through the rear hall. The garden is primarily to grass and is on two levels with two tall conifers. Iron Cottage sits in an elevated position on the edge of Bourton, the most northerly village in Dorset. The Stourhead Estate is nearby with its stunning National Trust Gardens. Bourton has a good range of local amenities including a popular inn, garage/post office/village stores, church and well regarded primary school. There is a doctor's surgery in the village of Silton, while Gillingham provides for most everyday needs with a Waitrose and mainline railway station (London Waterloo). Nearby Bruton is a fashionable and popular town in the heart of the Somerset countryside, and has several well-known restaurants, pubs and bars including Opis, The Roth Bar & Grill at the world-renowned Hauser & Wirth Gallery and the newly opened Newt Hotel and Gardens. For more sophisticated requirements there is the cathedral city of Salisbury to the east and the city of Bath to the north. The A303 is close by and gives access to both the West Country and London via the M3.
