A detached period four bedroom property on a large plot in need of updating and refurbishment. Located on the edge of a village close to Wilton.
High Banks is a remarkably individual property that has been in the same family ownership for over 40 years, it is now being sold as a refurbishment project with development potential (subject to necessary consents). The property although tired has a great deal of charm and character with an attractive facade of brick and square-panelled timber-framing. To the front there is an unusual design with a porch supporting a room above. Internally the accommodation is excellent with a large sitting room and a large separate dining room. There is a kitchen/dining area which leads on to a pantry and a downstairs cloakroom. On the first floor there are four bedrooms, three doubles and one single, a bathroom and separate shower and separate toilet. In the loft space there is excellent storage. The property sits on large plot approaching 0.6 of an acre. There is a former tennis court and overgrown swimming pool, although no longer usable, this shows the excellent size of the plot. This is an ideal project for someone who wants a village property with very good outside space and to put their own stamp on a home. The property benefits from no forward chain and should be viewed immediately.
South Newton is in the heart of the Wylye Valley and surrounded by attractive countryside, approximately 2 miles from Wilton and about 6 miles from Salisbury.

There is excellent walking, riding and cycling country all around with Grovelly Woods to the south, the Wylye Valley to the east and west and Salisbury Plain to the north. There are many other opportunities for sport and recreation with golf, tennis, rugby and football clubs nearby, racing at Salisbury and motor racing at Thruxton. For those who commute to work outside the area or travel on a regular basis the A303 is only five minutes away bringing the West Country and the business centres along the M3 and M25 corridors within easy reach. Heathrow and Southampton airports are also within reasonable driving distance, and there are fast regular trains to London (Waterloo) from Salisbury station.
