Cutbush Cottage

Originally forming part of the Willonyx estate owned by father and son, Sam & Fred Darling, racehorse trainers to King George VI, converted to a high standard in 1988 with walking or riding from the doorstep onto the North Wessex Downs. A brick paved courtyard area with parking for the owners and visitors of Silbury Court. A private driveway provides parking for one car and leads to the converted garage and front door with an outside light. Through the door into the entrance hall with window to the front and oak flooring leading into a central hall with staircase rising to the first floor, storage cupboard under, oak flooring and natural light from a first floor velux window. Turning left into the newly refitted downstairs cloakroom with window to the front, toilet, wash basin and fuse box. Next into beautiful contemporary kitchen with window to the front, quartz worksurfaces with underhung sink, four ring hob with concealed extractor hood, integrated double oven and grill, dishwasher and fridge. Good range of units including a boiler cupboard with storage area over.


Back into the hall and left into the large L'shaped sitting / dining room with double doors opening into the courtyard garden to the front. Back into the hall and straight on into the garage which has been converted into a man cave / utility room or workshop with lighting. On the wall is the control unit for the PV panels which generate electricity which is then fed back into the National Grid, for which we understand the owner of Cutbush receives around £1000 a year, guaranteed for many years to come. Up the staircase onto the first floor landing, right past a deep airing cupboard into the main bedroom, a handsome double bedroom with built in wardrobes and four velux windows to the front. The family bathroom is next, again newly refitted contemporary suite with double ended bath and separate walk in shower, wash basin and toilet. The third bedroom is a decent single which could accommodate a double bed if required, again with velux windows to the front. Finally into the second bedroom, a double, with two deep wardrobes/storage cupboards. OK that is inside, back downstairs and out into the garden.


Enjoying a sunny south and west aspect the garden comprises of a good sized paved courtyard, raised flower and shrub beds, various mature trees and shrubs and a decent sized raised vegetable bed. Enclosed by trellis fencing with gate to the side. There is also on the other side of the parking area a great sized store room with power and lighting which also houses the oil tank for the heating. There is no access or garden to the rear.
