A fine Grade II listed family home with land on the edge of Salisbury Plain
This fabulous Grade II listed home has origins dating back to the 17th century, with later additions. Constructed of red brick under a tiled roof, this is a family home full of character, with Tudor-arched doorways, stone mullion windows and a wonderful staircase, the upper section of which is Elm and thought to be original. The most astonishing aspect is the wonderful ceiling heights on both ground and first floors. The property is filled with light and occupies an elevated position on the edge of the village, with far reaching views across Salisbury Plain.
The formal front door leads into a lovely entrance hall, ideal for open-plan dining, with floorboards and the stairs leading up to the first floor. The elegant drawing room has a working fireplace and French doors out to a side terrace. The kitchen has a wonderful Blue Lias flagged floor, with underfloor heating, with fitted units, a four-door Everhot* and ample space for a dining table. The kitchen opens into the family sitting room, a lovely space with a window seat from which to enjoy the views over the paddocks beyond. A door leads from here to the cloakroom and thence to the billiard room, also accessed from the entrance hall, with an attached store beyond. Lying off the sitting room is a playroom, utility room and boot room, with side door access to the parking area.
Upstairs, the landing leads on to four large double bedrooms, with a shower room and family bathroom. A further set of stairs leads to the second floor with a study/play area leading to two further bedrooms and a family bathroom. One of the bedrooms makes an excellent dormitory' room with space for a number of single beds.

Gardens and Grounds
Forming part of the main property and labelled Barn 1 on the floor plans, a large traditional Grade II listed barn, constructed of cob on dressed limestone and formerly stables to the Manor, is nearly 60' long and offers scope for a range of uses. There are smaller attached barns and stores, including a hay store, as well. These barns currently provide ample storage and space to complement the house and grounds.
The gardens lie predominantly to the east and south of the house, with wide swathes of lawn and landscaped grounds offering different spaces from which to enjoy outdoor living. The front lawn is largely enclosed by a traditional stone wall and slopes down to a buttressed ha-ha with a small paddock
below. There are areas of wild' garden with a number of mature specimen trees, interspersed with perennial shrubs and walks.
The paddocks lie to the north of the house, with a band of woodland along the eastern boundary. In total, Lot 1 extends to about 9 acres.
LOT 2 (available by separate negotiation): comprises a yard of traditional barns, within the grounds of The Manor. Whilst there are no formal planning approvals, it is thought that there is scope for these barns to be redeveloped in some capacity, subject to the necessary planning and listed building consents. The barns are accessed off the lower stretch of driveway to The Manor and consist of:
1) 60' x 23' Barn 2 is Grade II listed and lies on the eastern side of the yard. This lovely detached barn is thought to date back to about 1800 and is timber-framed, with weatherboarding above a rubble stone plinth, under a slate roof.
2) 63' x 23' Barn 3 is also Grade II listed and forms the northwest part of the yard. With a similar provenance and thought to date to about 1800, the barn is timber-framed, with an attached cart bay, brick built lean-to and additional storage barn.
3) 49' x 23' Barn 4 adjoins the Grade II listed Barn 3 and flanks the driveway to The Manor. It is of similar construction with a timber frame atop rubble stone plinth and clad in weatherboarding under a slate roof.

The views from The Manor are just fantastic and I love the position, towards the end of the village, with some gorgeous gardens and grounds. The 'X-factor' are the barns in Lot 2 - someone could do something very special there and create a real legacy property.James McKillopProperty agent
