A really Delightful Semi-Detached Victorian Cottage adjoining open Country in this exclusive location well away from busy roads.



is a really delightful and unexpectedly spacious semi-detached early Victorian cottage of enormous charm, which has attractive mellow brick elevations under a tiled roof and benefits from Oil-fired central heating to radiators together with a combination of wooden and Upvc sealed unit double glazing. The cottage takes its name from a disused well uncovered in the Dining Room which we are informed had run dry and therefore has been sealed underneath the flooring. The cottage provides comfortable easily managed accommodation which would be ideal for someone seeking a rural home of character tucked away in an exclusive setting, hence the Agents strongly advise an early internal inspection to avoid disappointment.


Short Street does not live up to its name for it is in fact made up of a winding ½ mile long single width track interspersed with a scattering of cottages, in an elevated setting enjoying glorious views, well away from busy roads and surrounded by farmland. Warminster has 3 supermarkets including a Waitrose store and a wide range of other amenities which include a theatre and library, hospital and clinics and a railway station with regular rail services to Salisbury, and then direct to London Waterloo, and to Bath with a direct line on to South Wales. Other main centres in the area including Frome, Westbury, Trowbridge, Bath and Salisbury are all within comfortable driving distance as are the various Salisbury Plain military bases whilst the A36, A350 and A303 trunk routes provide swift road communications throughout the West Country and further afield to London via the A303/M3. Bristol, Bournemouth and Southampton airports are each just over an hour by road.
