About this property

  • This handsome and substantial family home was built by the current owners 18 years ago. A local farming family, they took great care to source local materials, including Chilmark Stone from the nearby quarry, and to use trusted local trades. The windows are made of high-quality accoya wood, known for its durability. The house has been future-proofed to a great extent, including the creation of the second floor which, although currently used for storage, has the dimensions and ceiling heights to allow for conversion into four further good-sized rooms.

    The spacious reception hall, with oak panelling and solid oak floorboards, offers direct access to the principal rooms. A dual-aspect drawing room, with French doors into the garden and a Jetmaster open fire, opens through to a study. The cosy sitting room, with open fire, has French doors into a conservatory which, in turn, has French doors into the garden. Again dual-aspect, the dining room has double doors opening into the kitchen/breakfast room, with a range of wooden cupboards, an oil-fired Aga, integrated dishwasher, fridge and separate oven and hob.

    It also benefits from a walk-in larder. Adjacent to the kitchen, with a back door into a rear porch accessing the garden, is a utility room with plumbing for a washing machine and dryer. It also has an internal door into the double garage, which has access to a gardener's WC.

    A solid oak turned staircase leads from the reception hall to the first floor landing. The principal bedroom is entered via a dressing area with fitted wardrobes and has an en suite bathroom. The second bedroom has an en suite shower room. There are three further double bedrooms, two of which enjoy far-reaching countryside views, and a family bathroom. The oak staircase extends to the aforementioned second floor, which has three additional rooms. Currently used for storage, these rooms have huge potential to be converted into any number of alternative uses, for example extra bedrooms and bathrooms, an integrated annexe, an extensive home office or games room/playrooms (with the relevant consents).


    The house is approached from Hindon Lane onto a large gravel driveway with a turning circle. A mature yew hedge ensures privacy. The gardens, laid predominantly to lawn, encircle the house and have numerous mature trees and herbaceous borders. A stone terrace and an apple orchard add to the charm. There is also a greenhouse and a vegetable garden. The property has extensive views of rolling countryside to the front and a rural outlook over pasture land at the back.

You can absolutely tell that this house was designed and built for the current owners - there are lovely little touches everywhere that stand out and show the attention to detail and thought that was put in to the construction.
