The exceptionally spacious living room has a wood burner and tiled hearth, with stone surround and stairs to the first floor. The living room leads on to an L-shaped reception room, which could be used a family room, playroom or office.
The dining room has a delightful original fireplace with built-in storage either side, and a door that leads to a rear porch, used as a pantry. There is a second staircase leading from a corridor behind the kitchen, allowing the first floor to be accessed from either end of the house and creating versatile accommodation opportunities, including the potential for an annexe or for multi-generational living.
The first floor comprises of 5 bedrooms, four of which are comfortable doubles and the fifth acting as a linkway between two staircases. The family bathroom has a freestanding bath, shower, WC, two heated towel rails and wash basin, whilst the second bathroom has a corner shower, WC, heated towel rail and wash basin.
The property is situated in a peaceful, elevated position on the edge of Newton Toney and enjoys delightful views across the surrounding countryside of the Bourne Valley and the village. Newton Toney has a public house, The Malet Arms, St Andrews Church and a thriving primary school. The A303 is approximately 3.5 miles away which connects to the M3 and London in the east and the West Country, whilst Grateley Station (Waterloo 80 minutes) is approximately five miles to the east. There are a number of excellent schools nearby in Salisbury and Winchester and Farleigh School near Andover. Salisbury has an excellent range of educational, recreational, leisure and shopping facilities which combine with a twice weekly market in addition to a mainline railway station (Waterloo).
The property benefits from a delightful and well looked after plot of around a 1/3 of an acre. There is a large drive, accessed via metal double gates, leading to off road parking for several vehicles.
The separate double garage is a particular benefit. Part of the structure has been sectioned off for a kitchen area (with power and water), with stairs at the rear leading up to a room which could be used as a playroom, office or has annexe potential (subject to necessary consents), whilst there is also a carport to the side of the garage.
A long drive leads down to the house, past a large formal lawn area with a selection of fruit bearing trees, mature flowerbeds, and a double pond. At the front of the property there is a pretty kitchen garden with raised herb and flower beds. The rear garden has been creatively designed with an ornamental box hedge section, as well as a lovely seating area backing onto a paddock. There are further outbuildings used for storage but have the potential for other uses or perhaps as a small business. The property is bordered by woodland to the south which is managed as part of the RSPB Winterbourne Down’s Nature Reserve, although there is no public access.
