Manor Road, Mere
Property SummaryA rare and exciting opportunity to purchase a charming property in an idyllic setting alongside being able to put your own on stamp on it.
The historic small town of Mere is located adjacent to the A303 and nestles beneath the South Wiltshire Downs. Mere's town centre provides an excellent range of services and facilities to cater for most everyday requirements including a Co-op convenience store, post office, electrical retailer, hairdressers, restaurants, public houses, primary school, church, butcher, pharmacy, Doctor's surgery and library.
The nearby town of Gillingham (3 miles) has a mainline railway station serving London Waterloo as well as several supermarkets including a Waitrose and an Asda.
Sands Cottage is a renovated substantial residence that is in need of completion.
Formerly farm cottages and constructed of local stone the property awaits a purchaser to add their own finish, specification and preferred finish to it which creates a fantastic opportunity not to be missed.
The accommodation has been designed for modern living and offers an entrance hall, study, utility room, a spacious and inviting kitchen / dining room with space for an Aga or range cooker, a 26ft sitting room with inglenook fire place, four bedrooms with superior master including a dressing area and en suite and a further bathroom.
A graveled driveway curves around the rear of the main house and provides ample off road parking space as well as access to the car port.
The gardens are mainly laid to lawn with several areas of mature, colourful shrubbery all of which are enclosed by an eye catching stone wall. Attractive countryside views are present making the gardens an excellent place to be all year round.
The simply stunning Annexe located above the car port and workshop was constructed by local firm English Oak Buildings and the result is something very special indeed. With intelligent use of spaces, exposed beams, vaulted ceilings as well as charming and high quality accommodation, the Annexe at Sands Cottage is absolutely fantastic. Externally, the Annexe offers breath-taking views across the neighbouring farmland which can be enjoyed throughout the seasons.
