This very impressive Grade II Listed period house features more than 5,000 square feet of beautifully presented accommodation, including five bedrooms, with each room displaying a variety of elegant period features, including high ceilings, large sash windows, timber panelling and original fireplaces. The property has recently undergone a complete renovation by the current owners, who have sympathetically restored the property to create a wonderful family home.

On the ground floor there are two beautifully proportioned reception rooms towards the front. Both have exceptionally large sash windows offering light throughout the day. The formal dining room has a pretty ox-eye window, which is a unique feature in this room and the well-appointed drawing room, with an open fireplace and shutters on the sash windows also has French doors opening onto the garden. There is also a warm and comfortable snug, with timber wall panelling and a brick-built fireplace. This is thought to be the oldest part of the property dating back to the mid 1700's.

The kitchen/breakfast room to the rear has attractive shaker-style units and integrated appliances, with plenty of space for a kitchen table for more informal dining. There is also a wonderful walk in pantry cupboard with ample shelving and a utility room, finished to a similar style as the kitchen and a convenient boot/coat room offering access to the rear garden. Overlooking the rear walled garden, is the garden room, which is a perfect space for reading or relaxing. There is also a downstairs cloakroom and a back hall offering access to the side of the property if needed. A fabulous cellar, complete with original wine bins, offers brilliant dry storage.

Upstairs, the five bedrooms are all generous doubles, including the principal bedroom, which is dual aspect and has its own Jack & Jill entrance to one of the bathrooms, with an impressive and luxurious roll-top, free-standing bath. In all there are three bathrooms, plus a shower room to the first floor. There is also a study, perfect for home-working set to the side of the accommodation, which could also be used as a sixth bedroom if so desired.

The property is set in the older part of the village of Durrington, within the Conservation area, 10 miles north of the cathedral city of Salisbury. The village has a variety of everyday amenities, including local shops, a post office, a small supermarket, a village pub and a primary and secondary school, as well as a leisure centre with a swimming pool.

Further amenities and schooling can be found in Amesbury, while the cathedral city of Salisbury is within easy reach, providing an excellent selection of shops, leisure and cultural facilities. The area is well connected by road, with the A345 providing easy access to Salisbury and its mainline station (1 hour 30 minutes to London Waterloo), and the A303 offering access to the M3, and towards the west country. There are also mainline stations at Grateley (1 hr 20 mins to London Waterloo) and Pewsey (65 mins to London Paddington).

The area is renowned for its excellent schools including Marlborough College, St Mary's Calne, Dauntseys and Godolphin. Prep schools in the area include Farleigh (Andover), St Francis (Pewsey), Chafyn Grove and Cathedral School (Salisbury).

Racing at Salisbury, Wincanton and Newbury. Golf at Upavon and Marlborough. Local shoots and fishing. Close by there are many riverside walks as well as access to Salisbury Plain which offers further walking and cycling.

At the front of the property, security gates open onto a resin courtyard area, providing additional parking and access to the back hall of the house. The handsome front façade of the house has a pathway leading to it, with lawn on either side. To the rear of the house there is an immaculate walled garden, which is mostly laid to lawn, with paved terracing, gravel pathways and border flowerbeds, shrubs and hedgerow. There is also an established kitchen garden and fruit cage offering a bountiful supply of produce. There is also a superb array of fruit trees including cherry, plum, apple, fig and pear.

There is an additional entrance to the property via Clover Lane, which leads to the detached double garage with studio space on the first floor. This could easily be used as an external office if needed or just for additional storage.

Agents Note: There is a two-bedroom cottage available via separate negotiation, which would offer ancillary accommodation.
