Property SummaryA fine Grade II Listed late Georgian house, built c.1830, with exquisite architectural features which creates a lasting first impression.
The gracious drawing room is of particular note with fantastic ceiling height and an abundance of natural light due to its south-westerly aspect and full height bay windows. From here there is also access to the glorious rear garden. The eat-in kitchen is elegant and generous in size, leading directly out to the garden. There is a door linking the kitchen to the dining room allowing the space to be used either formally or as a comfortable kitchen and family room. Planning permission has recently been granted to enlarge the kitchen with a single storey extension. A wide entrance hall, which leads to a sweeping staircase lit by a large arched window, a double aspect family room and a generous dining room with a feature fireplace complete the ground floor accommodation. On the first floor there is a large landing which provides access to the four bedrooms, one of which adjoins a larger bedroom and could also be used as a dressing room. There is a stylish family bathroom and a separate shower room. This magnificent house retains a wealth of original character features including sash windows, ornate fireplaces, exposed floorboards and shutters.
The picturesque, south-facing garden has been divided in to two areas, with the section close to the house being mostly laid to lawn and surrounded by well stocked flower beds. There is a summer house with electricity supply. Beyond the hornbeam hedge is a productive vegetable garden and a workshop with an electricity supply. There is a gravelled driveway providing off road parking for multiple vehicles.
Located in the attractive market town of Wilton which provides a good range of local amenities including three public houses, a hotel with restaurant, an impressive Italianate church, bakers, two doctors surgeries, osteopath, butchers, dentist and two convenience stores, one with a post office. The town also has a weekly market along with a very good bus service (including a park and ride) linking it to the cathedral city of Salisbury. Nearby Salisbury has an excellent range of shopping, educational, leisure and cultural facilities as well as a mainline railway station with trains to London Waterloo, journey time approximately 90 minutes.
