Overton House is a substantial period house with original features and delightful gardens on the edge of this pretty Wylye valley village.
Overton House is an excellent example of detached Grade II listed period village house, situated on the edge of this pretty Wylye Valley village with open fields to one side and a church to the other. It is thought there was a house on the site since the end of the 17th century which was re-built in circa 1800 in header bond brick with chamfered stone quoins with large 20 pane sash windows to the ground floor which provide ample natural light. The interior has some original joinery; 6-panelled doors in moulded architraves, stairs with cast-iron balusters, wreathed moulded handrail and window shutters. There is a delightful original tiled floor in the entrance hall, attractive fireplace in the sitting room and a wood burner in the cosy living room. Some of the original service bells remain in place and provide a glimpse back to a different era.
The property has been in the same family for over 30 years and a similar time to that for their predecessors. The house and gardens has served the current owners very well as a family house and has been loved and enjoyed by three generations.
The main garden is a delight and not too demanding with traditional brick walling along the front boundary, and well-maintained level lawns to the front, side and rear. There is a lovely terrace and the gardens are interspersed with flower and shrub borders, recently planted and mature trees. There is a delightful pear tree trained up the side elevation of the house. There is ample parking on the driveway in front of the garaging and a second garden area to the rear where there is a lovely wendy house, vegetable patch and further mature trees. At the rear of the property is an outbuilding containing a workbench and fireplace which lends itself to development.
