Rookery Cottage is a very pretty country property in the popular village of Sutton Veny in Wiltshire. The original house was extended in the early 2000s by the addition of a classical brick and flint façade.

Accommodation is flexible and provides excellent family spaces: on the ground floor the four reception rooms include an elegant drawing room, dining room, informal sitting room and a study which, alongside the drawing room, provides direct access to the garden. The kitchen/breakfast room sits at the heart of the house and opens onto the terrace.

The first floor has two bedroom suites, both of which have double aspects, plus two further bedrooms and a family bathroom. The second floor has two additional bedrooms and a shower room. The gardens are well designed and come to just under an acre.
