A SUBSTANTIAL FAMILY HOUSE IN A STUNNING POSITION in the Heart of the Pewsey Vale.
On the open market for the first time in 50 years, Puckshipton House is a rare property that remains hidden in an unspoiled area of the Wiltshire countryside in the heart of the Pewsey Vale. The Grade II listed property is approached via a long tree lined private drive which sweeps down towards the outbuildings and main dwelling. The house in part dates back to the 1700's with a Georgian extension and more recent modern addition to the other end of the property. The property is entered through to the large entrance hall with original wooden flooring leading on to the formal living room and dining room both with woodburners and views across the garden and surrounding land. There is a further playroom/snug, study, cloakroom/w.c, (all with limestone floor and underfloor heatIng), plus a utility room and larder. The generous light and airy kitchen/breakfast room is fitted with a solid/wood fuel ESSE stove and space for a large range cooker along with free standing units and oak framed windows.
On the first floor there are four good sized double bedrooms and a smaller single room served by two family bathrooms. On the Georgian side of the property are two further large double bedrooms, both with stunning views across the surrounding countryside. The dual aspect master bedroom has a large ensuite complete with roll top bath and free standing shower.
Puckshipton House is situated between the villages of Beechingstoke and Marden, just a few miles outside the larger villages of Woodborough (1 mile ) and Pewsey ( 4 miles), with its railway link to London Paddington (65 mins). Puckshipton is within easy access to the A303 (12.5miles) and the larger towns of Salisbury (20.miles) and Andover (21 miles).
To the front of the property, the driveway sweeps around a sycamore tree with plenty of off road parking for several vehicles together with a single car port and garage within the barn. The formal gardens are largely situated to the west side of the property and are laid mostly to lawn, wild meadow and interspersed with ornamental trees and shrubs. There is a small hidden walled courtyard behind the house which is perfect for privacy from the main gardens and this borders a small copse of about 0.75 acre.
Surrounding the house are 2 well fenced pasture paddocks extending to approximately 8.5 acres, running down to the river Avon.
To the side of the house is a magnificent period timber framed barn (Grade II listed) now with a corrugated roof and cart doors. This is an ideal place for entertaining with stairs to a mezzanine floor. Adjoining is a brick former coach house/garage with 3 stables and tack room, together with a further car port and studio/office over.
