Heronwood is a splendid detached property whose origins date back over 200 years providing character features such as deep window reveals and an inglenook fireplace. The cottage has been substantially extended providing light open rooms with many rooms enjoying stunning views across the River Avon. The property is beautifully-presented throughout, with high quality fittings, timber beams and attractive gardens.

To the ground floor there is a cosy family room, with a brick-built inglenook fireplace, fitted with a wood burning stove. The open-plan kitchen and dining room, with its triple aspect including a bay window, is fitted with a timberbuilt window seat and offers views to the front. Double doors lead to the conservatory which has doors opening out onto the garden. The kitchen is fitted with smart white units and black granite worktops and has a large central island and a range cooker. Beyond the family room is an en suite double bedroom. There is also a large utility room with lots of storage and a cloakroom.

On the first floor is the impressive 26ft sitting room with its vaulted ceiling, the apex of which is glass, and has exposed timber beams and skylights welcoming plenty of natural light. There is a large Scandinavian style modern wood burner. At the southeast aspect is an oriel stain glass window. There are three bedrooms on the first floor including the master, with its large en suite bathroom, and there is also a family shower room.

Heronwood is situated in Middle Woodford in the picturesque Woodford Valley. There are excellent walks and cycle rides through the Woodford Valley and a number of byways for horse riding. There is an active community in the Woodfords with facilities including a garage with shop, a church, primary school, two popular pubs and a number of societies. Excellent travel communications are provided by the nearby A303, linking to the M3 motorway to the east and the West Country.

The local area is renowned for its schools, both private and state. There is an outstanding-rated primary school in the village whilst Salisbury offers very good Grammar Schools for both girls and boys.
