Avon Turn offers period grandeur with beautifully-presented, versatile accommodation arranged over two floors. The generous reception hall features a striking wooden staircase rising to the floor above. A door gives access into an elegant dual aspect drawing room which has an open fireplace, while the adjoining formal dining room offers the ideal setting for entertaining, with access to extend hosting onto the south facing terrace and garden. The views from the terrace overlook the River Avon and water meadows beyond. Beyond the dining room, a light-filled, kitchen/breakfast room has a green oil-fired AGA stove and is fitted with modern, cream-painted cabinetry and stone work surfaces. An island unit in contrasting tone is home to a induction hob with electric cooker, whilst creating a functional divide to the adjoining breakfast area, where there is ample space for family dining alongside the French doors, which again open onto the south-west facing terrace. A further reception room offers options for use as a sitting room/family room, and there is a useful study which is tucked off the reception hall.

There are two stairways to the first floor accommodation, allowing for flexible living. The impressive, dual aspect principal bedroom with spacious dressing room/nursery and well-appointed en-suite bathroom, along with five further bedrooms, two of which have en-suite facilities, all offer well-proportioned and light bedroom accommodation. One of the rooms offers flexible use as an upper level living space with an adjoining kitchen area, with access out onto a south-west facing balcony. A stylish family bathroom and a separate shower room complement the two cloakrooms situated on the floor below.

Secondary accommodation is provided in a barn-style, detached annexe where the first floor is reached via an external stairway. This offers a bed/sitting room with kitchen area and a shower room. On the level below, there is a double garage leading through to a workshop and a cloakroom with external access.

Shute End is a picturesque semi-rural hamlet on the north-west fringes of Alderbury, which lies to south east of the cathedral city of Salisbury and to the north of the New Forest National Park. Local facilities include a village hall, a primary school, convenience store, post office, a public house and tennis and football clubs. The neighbouring cathedral city of Salisbury offers a comprehensive range of recreational, shopping and cultural facilities including the Salisbury Playhouse theatre and a multi-screen cinema, along with direct rail services to London Waterloo. There is good access to the M27 linking to the M3 for onward journeys to both Southampton, which has an airport, and also to London. The area is renowned for its excellent schools including the Grammar schools for Girls and Boys in Salisbury. There are numerous prep and private schools nearby.

Avon Turn sits on the bank of the River Avon offering picturesque views and idyllic surroundings in a peaceful haven for those in residence. A decked platform at the water's edge offers a tranquil spot to relax, while a large, paved terrace adjoins the rear of the home providing space for al fresco dining. To one side, a covered area of the terrace offers shelter from the sun, and central curved steps lead down to the expanse of lawn which is interspersed with mature and specimen trees. There is ample parking in a detached triple garage outbuilding, which has a versatile-use floor above for a music/home office or gym.
