About this property

  • South Corston is a traditional farmhouse which has been part of the Hallyburton Estate for many generations but now requires a full programme of renovation and modernisation. The house has a pleasing symmetrical façade, and plenty of characterful original features. The reception hall has timber panelled walls, parquet flooring and wooden pillars supporting a broad arch. The drawing room and dining room with large astragal windows are lovely formal rooms situated on either side of the hall. The study/family room, kitchen (with AGA) pantry and WC are situated behind. The principal bedroom and bathroom are also located at the rear of the house on this floor.

    The back entrance into South Corston is on the lower ground floor which houses a large games room and bar along with a series of rooms of varying sizes (many with large old flagstones or pretty fireplaces) that would be ideal for anyone requiring space for dogs, boots, sporting equipment and additional utility space; however there is scope to create more bedroom accommodation or office space on the lower ground floor depending on requirements. An elegant curved staircase links all three floors at the centre of the house and there are four further bedrooms and a bathroom on the first floor.

    Garden
    The garden at South Corston has potential to be fabulous. Mature trees surround the grounds and large rhododendrons and a magnolia add colour at the front of the house in spring. Private driveways lead to the front and the rear of the house and the grounds include a partially walled garden, a south facing lawn with a disused swimming pool, a gravel turning circle and lawn at the front of the house and an attractive pond. The seller will retain the right to use water from the pond for irrigation purposes when necessary.

    Paddocks
    There are two small paddocks at the front and rear of the house.

    Outbuildings
    Single garage and coal store
    Greenhouse and pool house (both dilapidated).

I was struck by its privacy whilst also having no sense of being enclosed.
