A BEAUTIFULLY PRESENTED FIVE BEDROOM RESIDENCE AT PRESENT USED FOR DUAL OCCUPATION WITH FLEXIBLE ACCOMMODATION AND A LOVELY GARDEN
DESCRIPTION: This intriguing property was formerly built as the village hall in Victorian times when a cottage was added to the side as accommodation. In 1975 the original hall was converted into a garage and certain renovation works were carried out. The property then came onto the market in 1997 with potential for further renovation and was purchased and further improvement works were carried out including re-rendering of the exterior and new windows, re-plastering, new electrics and plumbing and redecoration. The property was then sold again in 2014 to the current owner who has carried out one of the most delightful refurbishment programmes that I have seen. The house is now used for joint occupation between the current owner and her mother with the main residence having a reception hall, cloakroom, lovely drawing room, large kitchen/dining room with three bedrooms and a bathroom on the first floor. The annexe with its own or shared access has a most beautiful kitchen/living room on the ground floor with bi-fold doors leading onto the garden with two bedrooms and a bathroom on the first floor. The property can easily be converted back to one large five bedroom residence if required.
To the front of the house there is a lovely enclosed garden with lawn, flower beds, borders, shrubs, fruit trees and vegetable garden. There is a wide gravelled parking area with access from the village road through a five-bar gate.
The house has the benefit of an oil fired central heating system as well as double glazing and internal inspection is vital to fully appreciate what this lovely property offers.
LOCATION: This intriguing property is located on the edge of the village of Barford St Martin in the heart of the Nadder Valley. The village has good facilities including a public house, church, hall and garage with general stores. The historic town of Wilton is some three miles away with its further good facilities including a weekly market and the city of Salisbury is some six miles away.
