A stylish, contemporary house of award-winning design, split over three levels, with ample parking, separate garage and workshop, and level garden with a small stream running through it.
One of two striking, architect designed houses in the popular and conveniently located village of Quidhampton. Still Waters was built in 2005 by local Jamron Construction and Commended in the New Build Award Scheme as a fine example of courageous development.
Of render, under a slate tiled roof, the property has been designed to offer versatile and light-filled accommodation over 3 floors, with most rooms having the benefit of large, south-facing windows, or glazed doors, overlooking the garden and terraces. High quality and attention to detail are clearly evident throughout.
The solid cedar front door opens into a light hallway on the ground floor, with a long view through to the glazed rear door and garden beyond. Ash flooring is laid throughout the majority of the house. The kitchen, with large central island, range of high quality units, granite worktops and integrated appliances, has a glass panel balustrade looking down into the breakfast/dining room. Also on this level is a sitting room, with double French doors to a Juliet balcony overlooking the garden. Wide steps lead down to the dining/breakfast room, with an expanse of glass, surrounding French doors onto a south-facing terrace. The units in the dining room and living room were made by Neville Johnson and installed in 2006. There is a cloakroom/WC on this floor.
A bespoke ash-block floating' staircase leads down to the garden level. The principal bedroom has double French doors, opening straight out onto the decked terrace and garden beyond and an en suite shower room, with limestone flooring. There are two further double bedrooms on this level, one with an en suite bathroom and, again, double doors onto the garden. A utility room completes this floor. The floating' staircase continues up to the top floor of the house, offering a dual-aspect double bedroom, a family bathroom, with green slate floor and a further dual-aspect double bedroom/study. The garage has a gym/workshop on the level below it, with its own separate WC.
The house is approached via a gravel driveway to the front, offering parking for several cars. The south-facing garden' elevation of the house has been carefully designed to offer sunlight to all the rooms and access to the outside, onto balconies or terraces, from both the ground level and garden level. The pretty landscaped garden backs onto woodland bordering Salisbury's famous water-meadows and a small stream runs through the garden, flowing under a charming foot bridge. The boundary is an attractive mixture of cherry, bamboo and native hedgerow, interspersed with close border fencing. The garden is laid mostly to lawn with a variety of planting, including acers, roses and tulips.

This is a house that is deceptively spacious and has amazing views over gardens to the rear. The natural light is fantastic and it is in immaculate condition, ready for living in.James McKillop
