Property Description

Plough Cottage is lovely 2 bed Victorian property in the pretty village of Chapmanslade and has all the elements you would want of a country cottage. Beams, a big brick fireplace, gorgeous cottage garden and the village pub just up the road - but also all those other essentials like a pretty country kitchen, a conservatory from where you can enjoy the garden and modern bathroom suite. It is ready to move into but equally offers loads of scope to extend and remodel to suit the potential buyer without having to do anything immediately.

It is set back from the road with a very low maintenance landscaped garden and brick pathway leading to a glazed front door with original bell pull.  The centrepiece of the garden is a vintage horse drawn plough, perfect considering the name of the cottage.  The hallway leads into a large, beamed lounge/diner and what strikes you first is how warm and cosy the cottage is - very welcoming on a chilly winter's day. The owners tell me that the main beam in the lounge is reputedly from an old ship and runs the entire length of the room and into the neighbouring cottage where it is believed there is a plaque which bears the name of the ship.  There is an impressive original brick fireplace which already has a steel lined chimney so it would be easy to install a woodburner. A cupboard under the stairs provides useful storage for those bits and pieces you want to keep out of the way and there is a quirky little stained glass window in the wall between the lounge and kitchen.

Stained glass, part glazed doors lead into the kitchen which is very 'country cottage' with units in a lovely sage green. There is space for a range cooker and fridge freezer and more than enough cupboard space to store all those gadgets that the keen cook can't live without. The boiler for the oil-fired central heating is tucked in the corner and a large window looks out over the garden and across to the hills in the distance.

From the kitchen, a few steps lead down into a really useful conservatory which is big enough for a small table from where you can enjoy breakfast and take in the view. The owner has photos of the garden in summer and it is absolutely glorious.

Stairs from the hallway lead up to a spacious main double bedroom with several fitted wardrobes and a useful second room which could serve either as a small office or dressing room or could, equally, be incorporated into the bedroom to make more space. There are so many options. There is a second double bedroom with fitted wardrobes and a family bathroom with a modern white suite and the all important shower over the bath. The bathroom has lots of built in storage which makes excellent use of the space as well as a useful airing cupboard for towels and bedding. One thing this cottage isn't short of is storage space.

Outside there is a brick patio area that matches the front garden path, a small area of decking and then steps down to the lawn flanked by flowerbeds. A stepping stone path meanders down the garden to another patio area - one for the morning and one for the evening - bordered by flowerbeds edged with split rails and finally a pretty pond with waterfall that has been beautifully planted around its edges. It really is a gorgeous garden. There is also a shed, a workshop and a brick and rendered store which matches the house. The garden is an absolute haven for wildlife and a truly lovely place to while away a sunny day.

Chapmanslade is a very pretty village on the Somerset/Wiltshire border, a few miles to the East of Frome. It has a lovely pub, the Three Horseshoes, which is very popular and serves excellent food, a village church with stained glass windows by the notable Victorian craftsmen Clayton & Bell who held a royal warrant from Queen Victoria, and a OFSTED rated 'Good' primary school. Barter's Plant Centre, just up the road, is a great place to buy plants and containers and get advice on how best to maintain the lovely garden at Plough Cottage.
