The Bottom, Urchfont


Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 3

With the original house believed to have been built in approximately 1860, the property retains many of the original character features along with improvements made by the current owner over the years including a new roof, soffits and guttering in 2020, a new oil boiler in 2018, and a new kitchen in 2014 . The house may require a few minor areas of cosmetic improvement depending on personal choice and taste, however the house is ready to move straight into and combined with a quiet position would make an ideal purchase for a family or couple looking for village life. There is parking opposite which, although not on the title register, has been solely used by the current owners since purchasing it originally in 1977.

Walking in through the front door, through the porch area and into the hallway, there is very much a 'cottagey feel' to the house with wood flooring in the hall and leading into the sitting room to the front of the house. The sitting room retains an exposed brick fireplace with multi fuel burner (burner and chimney maintained regularly) with bay windows overlooking the front of the house and window to the side. The kitchen is accessible from the hallway and has a range of wall and floor units, integrated oven and hob, granite works surfaces, tiled flooring and window to side of house. The dining room area with tiled flooring leads from the kitchen and opens into the conservatory which was built approximately ten years ago. From the dining room area is a utility room with boiler, plumbing for white goods and door leading to garden.

Upstairs on the first floor are three bedrooms, including master, a single bedroom, a separate family shower room and separate family bathroom.

The garden to the side has established borders, is fully enclosed and is patioed. There is also a shed with power. The property is offered with vacant possession and no onward chain.


Urchfont has a good range of facilities for a village of its size including a Community Shop, vibrant Village Hall, busy Public House, thriving Primary School and Church together with doctors' (part time) and dentists' (full time) surgeries. Bus services connect the village to adjoining communities and Urchfont has a community bus which travels into Devizes daily and makes trips further afield to towns up to 80 miles away. It can also be hired for use by members of the community. There are two village Greens and a duck pond. On the first weekend in May there is a 3 day scarecrow festival which attracts many thousands of visitors and raises about £20,000 p.a for mainly local causes.
