The Farmhouse forms the principal part of the property and is of red brick elevations under a thatched roof, which was redone around five years ago.

The layout of the five bedroom home provides some lovely reception rooms arranged around the central farmhouse kitchen.

There is a stylish dining room with high vaulted ceilings and access to the central yard and a nearby secondary kitchen, that is ideal for entertaining.

Completing the ground floor is a utility room and ground floor shower room.

Upstairs, there are five bedrooms, a family bathroom and further shower room.

The main farmhouse adjoins West Barn, also thatched, which is a lovely open-plan barn with vaulted ceiling that runs along the western boundary of the property.

Measuring over 12 metres internally, the barn provides the ideal space for a large party barn, a workshop for those with large-scale hobbies or a studio.

It has an inspection pit and two sets of double doors, opening in from the courtyard and out onto the lane behind.

North Barn got planning permission in 2015 for conversion to a residential annex, ancillary to the Farmhouse and provides the perfect foil to the principal home.

It is light, modern, and open-plan, with traditional timber-frame construction, minimalist fittings and provides a range of options for an owner.

It currently provides an open-plan kitchen/dining room, sitting room, cloakroom, utility room with two bedrooms and a bathroom on the ground floor.

One of the bedrooms is used as a home office and there is a third bedroom on the first floor.

Approached off the lane into a large central courtyard with ample parking, Talks Farm lies in a peaceful and rural setting.

The gardens and grounds provide an idyllic setting for the property, with a thatched cob wall, deep floral borders and wide swathes of open lawn. There is a summerhouse and BBQ area.

James McKillop, the head of residential sales at Savills in Salisbury, said: “Talks Farm is as pretty as a picture. I particularly love the garden with thatched cob wall.”
