EQUESTRIAN - A rare and unique opportunity to purchase a glorious period home idyllically situated in the highly sought after Wiltshire village of Chilmark, with approximately 5 acres of gardens and grounds encompassing stables, paddocks, ménage, swimming pool and various additional outbuildings.
The Malthouse is a stunning Grade II listed period village home that largely dates back to the 17th Century with some parts dating back to the 15th Century, that has been extended and renovated over recent decades but still offers ample scope for further alteration and enlargement. The home offers a wealth of original hallmarks and period features which retains the homes true character. Much work has been completed to the integrity of the home itself, a new roof structure was completed in 1989 by the previous owner, and the current vendors have then replaced the thatch in 2015, fitted a new kitchen, bathrooms, replaced several windows and enhanced the equestrian facilities.
This versatile home offers ample attractive accommodation boasting 21st century conveniences whilst not losing the homes considerable period charm. The flexible accommodation includes a useful entrance porch that leads through to the welcoming entrance hall. There is a stunning sitting room with a feature log burner and original mullion windows to one side, the perfect sizeable Winter snug. There is then the dining room and recently reimagined and reappointed kitchen with a useful traditional larder. Beyond there is a refurbished cloakroom and the stunning vaulted ceiling drawing room with a versatile mezzanine floor, currently used as a study or could be another guest bedroom with wonderful views across the rear garden out to the paddocks beyond. The drawing room is of particular note and provides the perfect entertaining space for all seasons. There is a log burner and French doors leading out to the rear terrace and swimming pool.
On the first floor there are three generous bedrooms. The master bedroom is fitted with comprehensive wardrobe space and offers plenty of room to add an en-suite. The other bedrooms are a good size and have vanity units whilst being serviced by the well appointed family bathroom.
This fine home is a true rarity in this desirable village, a viewing is highly recommended to appreciate all this stunning home has to offer.

Tisbury, which is 2 miles away, has a mainline railway station to London Waterloo (109 minutes) and offers a variety of local shops and amenities. Salisbury has excellent shopping, educational, cultural and recreational facilities. Along with the excellent village primary schools, Salisbury offers good state secondary schools, the popular grammar schools, South Wilts and Bishops Wordsworth and highly regarded private schools, Godolphin, The Cathedral School, Chafyn Grove and Leaden Hall, St Mary's Shaftesbury, Sandroyd, Port Regis and Clayesmore, are all close by.
The home is prominently positioned in its plot with open plan landscaped gardens to the front. The pretty front garden is predominantly laid to lawn interspersed with specimen trees, complimenting the idyllic street scene of the village. A shingled driveway dissects the gardens from the home and provides ample parking for multiple vehicles. A set of timber gates then allow access to the rear of the home. There is further parking and access to the double garage. The garage itself has light, power and ample loft space. To the side, and partitioned from the garage, is the secure tack room, again fitted with light, power and water. There is then a sizeable timber log and hay store. Beyond are the paddock and stables block.
The rear garden itself is predominantly paved with inset floral beds and borders, providing the ideal setting for the swimming pool.

The terrace and pool area offer the ideal vantage point to sit and relax over looking the tree lined paddocks and stables beyond. There is a summerhouse situated to the rear of the pool.
The stables and paddocks are then to the rear of the home. A gated entrance way lead to the stable block, consisting of 5 loose boxes, all in excellent order with light, power and water with a concrete fenced yard to the front. The mature, excellently maintained, free draining ground is then divided into 3 main paddocks with stock fenced, hedged and wooded boundaries offering a wonderful degree of seclusion and boasting stunning views back across the valley. Internally the paddocks are post and rail fenced. To one side there is a 20x40 ménage with fenced boundary and a quality rubber/sand surface, perfect for all weather riding. The paddocks are interspersed with copses and plantations of native hard wood trees, planted by the previous owners under a council grant.
