WATERSIDE - An exceptional and rare opportunity to purchase an attractive and substantial period home set within gardens and paddocks extending to 2.2 acres and occupying a private and peaceful location in this much sought after and picturesque village.
Riverford is a handsome and deceptively spacious character home boasting a wealth of versatile accommodation and period features including exposed wooden beams and brick fireplaces. The current vendor has been meticulous in maintaining this charming home which has recently been enhanced by the recent addition of a Harwoods kitchen and en-suite bathroom to the master bedroom.
Upon entering the home you are greeted by a welcoming entrance hall, that gives way to the sitting room and ‘heart of the home’ kitchen/breakfast/family room. This stunning open plan area has been beautifully designed to provide the perfect entertaining space, with numerous windows and bi-fold doors allowing an abundance of natural light to flood the room. The newly fitted Harwoods kitchen boasts a range of wall and base units with lovely wooden work surfaces, integrated induction hob and gas cooker. There is ample space for a dining table and chairs and is further complimented by an exposed brick fireplace with log burner. The sitting room has charming exposed beams and also boasts an exposed brick fireplace and log burner. A door then leads through to the triple aspect dining room. A useful utility/boot room and downstairs shower room completes the ground floor accommodation. On the first floor, the dual aspect master bedroom benefits from a generous, newly appointed bathroom with built in shelving. There are two further bedrooms serviced by a modern family bathroom.
This property is presented in excellent order throughout and we thoroughly recommend viewing to fully appreciate the both the accommodation and the home’s position within this idyllic village.
This property is featured by our Waterside department.
Monkton Deverill is a small pretty rural village set in the Deverill Valley, part of the West Wiltshire Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The River Deverill is a chalk stream that meanders through lovely rolling countryside before becoming the River Wylye at Crockerton. With miles of uninterrupted footpaths and bridleways, the area is ideal for walking and riding as well as other rural pursuits such as cycling and fishing. Racing is at Bath, Salisbury and Wincanton whilst sailing is available at Shearwater on the edge of the Longleat estate, famous for its safari park, Elizabethan stately home and Center Parcs. Other well-known visitor attractions close by include the National Trust Gardens at Stourhead and the World Heritage prehistoric site at Stonehenge.
There is a petrol station/shop and pub in Longbridge Deverill whilst Mere has good every day shopping. The nearby towns of Bruton, Frome, Gillingham and Warminster provide good local shopping and leisure amenities whilst the Roman city of Bath and medieval cathedral city of Salisbury offer more comprehensive regional shopping, hospital and world regarded cultural facilities. The A303 and A36 trunk roads are both within easy reach providing ready access to London (via the M3), the West Country and motorway network as well as to the South Coast. Mainline railway stations can be found at Tisbury & Gillingham (London Waterloo) and Westbury (London Paddington). There are several excellent private and state schools in the area including Sutton Veny CoE Primary School, Gillingham Secondary School, Bruton, Port Regis, Clayesmore, Sandroyd, Sherborne, Dauntseys, Warminster and St Mary’s Shaftesbury amongst several others.
The gardens and grounds of the house are a particular feature amounting to approximately 2.2 acres. There are two paddocks, one to the left hand side of the home and one to the rear. The property is approached via a sweeping driveway leading to a large gravelled area providing off road parking for multiple vehicles. The majority of the gardens and grounds are laid to lawn and sit to the rear and side of the home. Adjacent to the family room is a substantial patio area with swimming pool and amble space for table and chairs, the perfect setting for al-fresco entertaining whilst enjoying views across the gardens. A path from the patio leads to the paddocks beyond. The formal gardens are beautifully landscaped with ease of maintenance in mind. A variety of colourful flora, shrubs and mature trees provide a degree of privacy and seclusion. A truly exceptional feature of the gardens is the River Deverill winding through it creating a picturesque Sylvanian setting with a wooden bridge leading to the paddock and equestrian facilities. There are four stables as well as a feed barn boasting water and electricity. A pretty ornamental well is the perfect finishing touch.
