The Stores is a characterful Grade II listed property which up to 1994 was the village shop in Orcheston. The Stores is set in a peaceful location with pretty views over the rolling countryside. The front door opens on to the cosy sitting room with a woodburner in the large inglenook fireplace. The thick cob walls help to keep this room warm in winter and cool in summer. The sitting room leads through to the dining room with the original village shop front door, a further inglenook fireplace and exposed beams all adding to the character of this property.

The kitchen/breakfast room has large sash windows looking out over the walled garden with a two door Oil Fired Aga and space for a dining table to seat six. A good sized utility room is located off the kitchen, in addition to a boot room providing access to the back door and garden. There is also an office with access to the rear garden. Through the office are two further rooms; a study and a workshop. Subject to the necessary planning consents these rooms could be combined to create a larger space.

On the first floor there are three double bedrooms one with an ensuite shower room. In addition, off the landing there is a good sized family bathroom and a further bedroom.

The Stores is situated in the pretty village of Orcheston. Orcheston is a popular village on the edge of the Salisbury Plain. Within the village there are two 13th Century churches and a village shop. Orcheston is a particularly peaceful village due to there being no through traffic. Nearby Shrewton is less than one mile away and offers a wider range of local amenities including a general store, post office, primary school, village hall and two doctors' surgeries. The nearby cathedral city of Salisbury offers additional cultural, shopping and entertainment facilities including several theatres, a cinema and a City Hall. The English Heritage site of Stonehenge lies approximately 4 miles to the south east of Orcheston.

Salisbury Plain and the Wylye Valley offer extensive walking, cycling and riding opportunities, a large number of which are directly accessible from The Stores.

Set in a peaceful position, Orcheston is still conveniently situated with both good communications to London airports and the national motorway network via the A303. In addition, Salisbury has a direct train service to London Waterloo (90 mins).

The area is well known for its excellent schools including; Chafyn Grove, Leaden Hall Godolphin,

South Wilts for Girls Grammar School and Bishop Wordsworth's. Further afield are Farleigh, Port Regis, Sandroyd, and St Mary's Shaftesbury. There are also a range of primary schools nearby in Shrewton, Codford and Wylye.

The property has an integrated double garage. The mature walled cottage gardens lie largely to the rear of the property and well established beds border the garden. In addition, there is a paved terrace at the rear of the property. Within the garden there is a garden store and greenhouse.
