Rest Harrow is set in an elevated and peaceful position and is believed to have been built in the 1930's. The house was substantially extended approximately 9 years ago by the current owners creating spacious accommodation suited to modern living. It is extremely light throughout with many rooms being dual aspect and enjoys far reaching views over the gardens and countryside beyond.

The front door leads to an entrance hall, off which is a good sized dining room which is triple aspect and has French windows opening onto the south facing terrace. The sitting room has a similar aspect, French windows and the original fireplace. A large kitchen/breakfast room has a range of bespoke units with oak work tops and a 4 oven electric Aga.

Leading from the kitchen is the snug which opens out to the delightful west facing courtyard which enjoys the afternoon and early evening sunshine. There is also a study, large utility room and cloakroom.

On the first floor leading from the spacious landing is the master bedroom with dual aspect windows, dressing room and an ensuite bathroom. There are four further bedrooms (one with ensuite bathroom and one with ensuite shower-room) and a family bathroom.

Rest Harrow is situated at the edge of the desirable village of Broad Chalke south west of Salisbury in the Chalke Valley. Broad Chalke is a pretty and active village where there is an award winning community run village shop (voted best rural shop by the Countryside Alliance in 2014) with post office, a pub, village hall and two churches. In addition to these facilities there is also a good doctor's surgery within the village and Broad Chalke primary school which is rated outstanding by Ofsted. The Cathedral city of Salisbury offers a wide range of cultural, shopping and entertainment facilities including several theatres, a cinema and a City Hall.

The picturesque Chalke Valley forms part of the West Wiltshire Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty offering an extensive range of walking, cycling and horse riding opportunities, a large number of which are directly accessible from Rest Harrow. The Chalke Valley History Festival is hosted annually and is a very popular attraction.

Nearby Tisbury and Salisbury have mainline railway stations with direct trains to London Waterloo. Communications by road are excellent with the A303 providing a link to the M3, M25 and London, or the West Country. The local area is renowned for its schools, both private and state.

To the rear of the garden is a summer house with electricity and telephone point which overlooks the glorious countryside views.

Hidden from the house is good sized outdoor swimming pool, which also benefits from the fantastic views.
